Lovely Little Leaves

The kettle starts to whistle

I make my way to the stove

The day has been hectic

And it’s time for a cup of tea

I search through the cupboard

Finding just the right blend

Tonight it will be a little chamomile

I pour the water over the tea and wait

When the time is right

I add a bit of honey

Then take my cup to the couch

I grab a book to read

And try to relax the day away

One sip at a time…

Happy and Grateful – Day 29

I have undertaken a challenge this year.  I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel.  No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment.  Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day.  Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog.  Let’s find some fun!

I was feeling a bit better today so I decided to go out and about.  I met my favorite person – my daughter – and had some spiced chai latte at a local coffee shop.  We chatted for a bit and then went to the library to browse.  I am in the middle of a Joe Hill book right now so I didn’t find anything just yet.  My daughter however came up with about 4 books to take home.

It was nice to see my daughter, that always makes me happy.  I still had enough energy to pick up a handful of things at the grocery store for my Dad and dropped them off when I made him dinner.  I am grateful I got those things done.  I may have more back and hip pain again tonight, but I do feel like it was a good day.
