CJ has done remarkably well with all the overhead noise. In fact I think he has done better than I have for he has not changed his routine. By the end of yesterday, however, I found I was craving silence! My prayer is today, day three, is the day they finish.
Today I am exploring the idea of adding "content writer" to the repertoire of things that I can do excellently. My resume continues to need more work but I've found that with all the banging and thumping during the roof work it is hard to concentrate. That project will be pushed to the day when the work is done and it is quiet in the wee home in the woods.
More projects to do once the roof work is done: rake the leaves out of the flower beds, sweep the garage, sweep the deck, pot the creeping lemon thyme (mosquitoes are supposed to hate it), and unpack that last one-half box that has not been unpacked. One more project...make the kitchen next to the family room functional.
Remember my musings about how the Universe/God speaks to us either with a gentle push, a new idea, a whispered thought...or if we need it a "slap upside the head"? This morning in the quiet hour around 5am I was laying in bed and missing my San Francisco home...missing the Lunardi's grocery store that I used weekly and its wonderful selection of produce, meats, and its friendly people. Then I reminded myself I was in my comfortable sleigh bed nice and warm and resting quietly...and to be thankful. The next thing I did upon waking more was check FB...and a San Francisco friend had posted an article about how unaffordable San Francisco has become. It, the article, was a very solid reminder of the fact that San Francisco is no longer a city that welcomes everyone rather it has become a place that welcomes only the wealthy...and the rest of us do not count. Thank you God for leading me to this wonderful home in the woods.
Today's Daily Word quote: "I let the chatter in my mind surrender to stillness and silence. I know Spirit within guides me into my heart where Christ’s presence waits for me with joy and gladness."
With that in my mind and in my heart, I anticipate this wonderful day...
