I love the idea of being content.  Contentment sounds so peaceful, so right.  And yet, the details of everyday life seem to allow me only brief glimpses.  Today, though, I am content.  The weather is absolutely beautiful- like a day plucked right out of Spring.  The sun peeks out occasionally, only to be chased away by the soft clouds and light wind gently blowing tranquility and happiness to those under their cover.  A few cheerful raindrops even found us.  

Here is what we did all afternoon:

What a day!

I too am loving the weather. The rainy days make me feel so productive. What is the title of the book you read? I love a good book. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

The book is Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. And I hope playing with my children and reading a good book (and blogging, of course) is considered productive!

Ah, Arizona weather, I miss you! But not as much as I miss my family there! How fun would it have been if I could have come over with my kids, let them all play, and read Jane Austen and chat together? Life just isn't fair!

I hope you are liking the book! I read a few of her books (Emma, Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice) a few years ago. I loved them.
