Ugh.

Today's assignment:  something you wore today.

Today, I'm in pajamas.  Normally, I'd be about as dressed up as I ever get and my butt would be in church with the rest of my family.  Today, I'd even be up on stage, singing with the praise team together with The Man and a handful of other musicians and singers.

But NOT today.

The cold I thought I was getting over on Friday was just taking a break to move from my throat down into my chest.  Where it bothered me all night long last night.


So this morning I am on the couch in my Winnie-the-Pooh pajama pants, a baggy t-shirt, and my softest fuzzy sweater, nursing a headache, stiff gut muscles, and a raw throat.

Boo.

Skyline

Today's assignment: Skyline.

I know most of the time you hear or see that word, you probably think of a cityscape against the setting sun, the stark, rigid lines against the free-form clouds scudding across a darkening sky.

But I don't have much for skyscrapers or interesting architecture out here.  My skyline is made up of mostly trees, the odd granary, and the hills in the distance.  My skyline starts down at the horizon.

Peace

This Photo A Day list is actually from 2012, but a friend of mine had pinned it on Pinterest just a few days ago and I thought I would play along, despite being three years late.  Maybe it will help me get back into blogging.  I think I've only done REAL writing here once or twice yet this year.

Anyway, without further adieu...

Today's assignment is PEACE.

I thought about taking a picture while out on my mile road, because that is where I most consistently find peace ~ when I'm alone with God.

I thought about taking a picture of the baby calves lying in the warm hay on the farm a mile south of us.  Or of our cats, curled up in deep sleep on our dog's broad, black back.  That's peace and tranquility.

All the while, I happened to be washing dishes.  I was getting a little warm with my hands in the hot, soapy water, and so I opened the window directly above the sink as well as the one above the counter a little to my right and behind me.  The instant freshness carried into the kitchen on the light cross-breeze was delightful.  I took a deep breath and savoured the sounds of the frogs and birds harmonizing together on the yard, the distant rumble of farm machinery coming to life as seeding time begins.  I looked out across our backyard, loving the sudden greenness of the grass after our first spring shower yesterday afternoon.

I looked back at my hands, covered in suds, and at the pile of still-dirty dishes ~ testament to a large, leisurely breakfast cooked by my husband (the girls have a day off school and The Man is also The Breakfast King) ~ and I smiled.


This is peace.
