Even though Monday is almost over, I'm taking a moment to look ahead to this week with gratitude.
Hello sunshine paint colors...Most of today's photos were taken in my newly painted and reorganized studio. I plan to give you a tour soon. The simple act of walking by that room makes me smile - let alone spending time in there.
Hello routine... I am trying to get back to a morning and evening routine. My morning routine starts at my desk.
Hello rain... I spent a good bit of time working on a project this weekend so I enjoyed sleeping a little late to the sound of a beautiful light rain. This was the view from my desk this morning as the rain continued to fall until about 7:30 this morning.
Hello holiday weekend...This is one of those weird years where the first week of class didn't culminate with Labor Day weekend. I normally need the extra day off to recover from the crazy that is the first week of classes. Sadly, we have to wade all the way through this week to get to the holiday, but I am truly looking forward to a relaxing weekend with family.
Hello creativity...I have several creative projects on tap this week. This is the start of one of them.
Hello democracy...I am looking forward to essentially two full weeks of democracy unleashed in the Republican and Democratic conventions. All my Tivo tuners are in action to capture this from all angles. As crazy as some of the things that come out of the mouths of our political candidates may be, we still live in the greatest nation on Earth and the relatively peaceful process of electing and installing elected officials is still amazing and incredible.
Hello Curiosity...As we say goodbye to Neil Armstrong, a true American hero, I cannot get enough of the video and images coming from the Curiosity Rover on Mars. The twitter feed is full of images.
What are you saying hello to this week? What are you grateful for this week?
