quietly zen saturday

from yesterday's jacabunny photoshoot
it's saturday morning, the laundry is underway, the dishes done, the living room is rearranged. the bird feeder is full and the birds are swarming it. bunnies and kitties are fed. there's a fresh pot of tea steeping.

tho' the t.v. is tuned to discovery travel & living in the other room and i keep hearing that ad for the show about women who didn't know they were pregnant 'til they were giving birth (really?! really?!) and the constant click of the camera as sabin stages a photoshoot with our kit lane jacabunnies (apparently the 472 pictures she took yesterday weren't enough), it feels quiet and calm around here.

i have a strong suspicion that the cat, in her catch-and-release program, has released a mouse under the shelf just to the right of my desk. she's spending an inordinate amount of time swiping a paw under there and she doesn't usually do that.

but i'm feeling quite zen about the whole thing.  calm and settled.

it's good to be home after a few whirlwind days in copenhagen with bloggy goddess gwen (you may remember her from woman on the verge and not really) and her kids. we had so much fun and so much food and we all bought legwarmers.

i feel a bit of time out of the house always settles me down. i need experiences that are outside the norm in order to appreciate those that are the norm. like a steaming cup of tea and a calm saturday morning.

Just finished a cup of coffee and now have Saturday stuff to do as well. Have fun!

Oh, and stop by today. I am having a nice give away of a neat khaki jacket for my followers as soon as I reach 300!

What a sweet Saturday morning.
Think I better get off my cold butt and put on some tea myself!

"i need experiences that are outside the norm in order to appreciate those that are the norm. like a steaming cup of tea and a calm saturday morning."

this is so true for me too. i have to remember it to keep from getting stuck in ruts.

The jacabunnies are so cute! And "I didn't know I was pregnant" is just so unbelievable - course I was sick every day of my pregnancy, so I KNEW!
