A day in my life...

First thing in the morning—coffee in my favorite white cup; golden sunshine pouring in from all windows.



Folding napkins and kitchen linens...



And playing with pretty things...






Some days are good days, some are so-so days, and then there are those other days... well, let's just say that some days last longer than others... 
 
 
Yes, sometimes darkness descends, but outside there is sunshine, and my geraniums are in full bloom... 
 


Outside, the garden is already looking lovely, even when no single flower is yet to be seen...


Everything is blooming most slowly, but oh "if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night" (Rainer Maria Rilke)


Do animals gossip like human does?  I think that's exactly what these doves were doing...
 

Petals...
 

I found these cute flower cupcake picks at Michael's. I bought two packages - .99 each. You can also use these picks to decorate the top of your cakes as well. Can't wait to make some beautiful yumminess!


Most often, lunch consists of a tofu bowl with veggies.



In the afternoon I work in the garden and sometimes I sit... sit and watch how the sap on the grapevine runs and sparkle when touched by the sun...



And get transfixed watching at how this miracle unfolds, and spread out—life unfurling and twinkling in purity and goodness..


Then comes evening...



Litte lights are turned on, one by one...


The evening skies dazzle and enchant... I go inside and then after a while comes night.  And I wait for the night to bring forth a new morning, hope, the beginning of another beginning, life, trust, faith, love and a deeper closeness with my Creator...


What are your days like?  Do share!

Good night everyone!
