FOR TODAY, March 16, 2009

Outside my window...the grass is looking greener, preparing for spring or perhaps for St. Patrick's Day tomorrow :-)

I am thinking...of Sandy's family, especially of her daughters the loss they must be feeling. And her mother - to lose a daughter so suddenly, so will be such a difficult time for all.

From the learning room...I am learning to golf and enjoying it ~ and my instructor understands my "creative" background so tries to tell me I need to find the rhythm and tempo in my swing - not just hit the ball. Ahh, it's not's music!

I am thankful, for friends, for life.

From the kitchen...It's time for Irish Soda Bread - yes, there's a wee bit a' the Irish blood running through these veins!

I am wearing...comfy blue jeans and my favorite OSU hoody to celebrate my Buckeyes making it to "The Dance!" GO BUCKS!

I am creating...a new necklace inspired by a palette pattern selected last week (new rule of thumb as I find myself loving to create necklaces despite this economy not wanting to sell them ~ for every necklace, will design 3 pair of earrings and/or bracelet...begin this week)

I am make a coffee run tomorrow to my favorite coffee shop (can't run out!).

I am reading..."The Artist's Way," "Moon-Calf," and trying to find Hannah's soccer stats...

I am hoping...that this week of incredible sudden loss and pain will also somehow bring peace and healing.

I am hearing...Rosie Thomas, "Farewell" - pandora

Around the house..."out with snowmen, in with spring..." week. It's about time. :-)

One of my favorite things...was hitting a golf ball, "feeling it" fly up and seeing it land about 75 yards out at the driving range ~ hey, there may be hope!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
remembering Sandy

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Nice post. I love the earrings below. I don't have pierced ears, but when I did I loved wearing cute earrings like these.
