in gentleness

another perfect day.

grey skies.... soft breezes.... gentle rains..... the children are following quiet pursuits of mellow computer games and painting.

this morning Maddie and I left home for a neighborhood walk - carrying a large brown basket, a pair of scissors, and an umbrella. We collected sunflowers, and rusty dried weeds that will be beautiful in our Autumn arrangements.

Since then I've collected roses, lavender, and peppermint from our gardens.

It feels like a Sunday.

There's a hush in our home - probably attributed to the closed windows, the soft whoosh of air coming from the heat vents, lit candles, and the gentling essential oils simmering in their pot.

There is beauty and gentleness here, today.
All is well.
