Full of Grace

  • Taking a Sunday afternoon nap in the grass, soaking up the sun.

  • Being gifted tickets to a preview of The Age of Adaline.  The movie was okay, but oh my, Blake Lively.  I am beginning to think I have “a type”.

  • Going to a dance marathon fundraiser and watching young folk dance with abandon.  What joy!

  • Spending a rainy afternoon mending clothes and sewing on buttons.  I do find simple, quiet domestic arts quite meditative and enjoyable.

  • A massage therapist who works out the ever growing number of kinks and aches.


  1. Wow, I bet a dance marathon is big fun. Niiiice.

  2. I love naps! I don't think I would take one in our grass though :) We danced the night away at a wedding last weekend. It was a good workout!

  3. Have to admit, I love domestic arts as well.
    I'm looking forward to seeing that movie, although admittedly, you and I do not share a type.
    The dance marathon took me back many years to participating (and help run) a dance marathon in college. Ah yes, I remember it well. ;)

  4. I do so agree about silence: i find it more and more necessary, but have always loved it. If I cannot sit somewhere still and hear the busy insects and the wind then I really notice it, and it is so hard to find somewhere one can do that. I remember silence from my childhood on a sunny afternoon, when the quiet actually pressed in on my ears it was so still: the only sound for minutes at a time might be a bee flying past. Wonderful and so healing.

  5. Ah, here it is! I had meant to leave this on your blog post on silence. Never mind, just getting careless in my old age:)
