Just An Ordinary Day

Today was wonderful. Just an ordinary day.

  • Trimmed geraniums in my cobalt blue pots on the porch
  • Face-timed the grandson & daughter
  • Went for groceries with the bushman
  • Baked oatmeal muffins – alas, they were rather dry

invited a friend for tea – she brought flowers from her garden, and I gave her home-made pesto and eggs

Just regular ordinary events.

Enjoying my family

Enjoying my home

Enjoying the flow of the day

Making an effort to ‘be here now’.  An old phrase from Baba Ram Dass.

So for today:

No striving.

No planning.

No goal setting.

Just sitting in the rocker on the porch. Just being me. Full disclosure! My real porch photo evaporated. So here is my fill in photo. A minor glitch in an otherwise perfect day.







  1. Sounds like an excellent day, Jodie (except for that disappearing photo!). By odd coincidence, I’m currently baking muffins for breakfast(bumbleberry/oat/bran) and I plan to prune back the lavender today. Other than that, it’ll be a writing day for me. I’m finishing up the penultimate draft of my fourth Blue Moon Harbor title. Then it’ll just be a final read and off it goes to my editor.

    1. Greetings! I find baking relaxing, that is when I have the time. Bravo for having an exciting writing day, especially when it is the final read. Then winging along to your editor. Congrats!

  2. What an idyllic day, Jodie! It reminds me of my oft-thought thought that if people would just put down their phones, they’d be able to skip those mindfulness courses, mindfulness books, and mindfulness meditation apps because they’re too busy being mindful 🙂

    1. You nailed it. It’s getting harder to disengage, especially when the news is so disgusting. And it was a great day because it reminded me of all my good fortune to be living on an island paradise. Thanks for dropping by.

    1. Absolutely correct. Every time I go outside I’m reminded of all the beauty around me. I especially enjoy seeing photos of the inner harbour of Victoria, and those spectacular shots of Vancouver. We are so fortunate.
