long , wonderful days...contentment is not a state of passivity and apathy...on the contrary, it results from becoming acutely present in the moment,whatever that moment brings...the end of summer has many gifts from nature...xo "be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."

~walking the garden this morning...just to see how everyone is doing ..with this hot weather, my shade plants have had some trouble...plus the fish like it when I give them some cold fresh water to play in...well Lacy(my pup) likes to watch the fish do their thing...she watched them for about 45 min. today...I just love the harmony...the simple things...I feel I live in paradise, I guess my own little paradise....xo

~the quietness of Sunday..it's like a glass of water that sits on my desk...waiting to be sipped from...like the tiny breeze, i feel on my arm...siting here typing..its like the jazz being played in the studio...with the volume barely there ...more like a whisper and so like freshly baked scones that when you take a bite ...gives you this pure contentment, that will never leave you....
sweet Sunday to all...xo
