Something good in every day

Today was one of those days. Maybe it had to do with the fact that I wasn’t psychologically ready for Monday to begin. I had a hard time getting up, mostly due to how wonderful the new flannel sheets felt.

I finally found a pair of sheets that my husband and I can both agree upon. And now that it’s chilly, I much prefer the flannel. I bought them here. And I used my coupon.

 Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.

I’m watching In Treatment with Gabriel Byrne, a show I haven’t watched for over a year ~ but it’s good. Very very interesting.

but there's something good in every day.

Today wasn’t great. But there was good in it. As I write this, George is at my feet and Miss Blackie is curled up on the opposite couch. I can hear crickets through the half open window in the living room and the distant sound of the train.

Thanks for coming by. Have a beautiful day, all.

Until tomorrow . . .

Sometimes it's hard to find it, but there is always something there.
I keep trying to figure out what it is about that show, In Treatment, I love it. Lovely golden photos.

Beautiful pictures and you're right, there is good to be found every day.

Even though it is hard some days, yes, you have to remember that there is plenty good, if you only look around you.
Good thoughts.

Sending warm thoughts and blessings your way.

Those moments you described are what I enjoy the most. Unhurried and filled with peace and contentment.

I miss seeing the colors change in Colorado. (I just moved to San Diego) But your blog brings the feelings back to me. Thank you for your incredible pictures!!

So agree about the flannel sheets; I use them all year round, they're so cosy aren't they.

I hope tomorrow is exponentially better, so loaded with good that you have to search with a magnifying glass to find anything bad.

(My own advice makes me laugh even though I sincerely mean it. These past two mornings, I woke up absolutely and positively forcing myself to say "thank you for another day," because otherwise there'd be nothing but a stream of negatives flying forth. It's such hard work to stay focused on the good.)

Here's to a better tomorrow.
