the best un-laid plans

-A productive morning that made time for tea, a biscuit and Harry Potter in the afternoon. I'm re-reading the final book in preparation for seeing the movie (yep, I'm obsessed) and it goes so quickly it's like a fun vacation that you want to slow down so it lasts longer.

-Hearing that my nieces are loving their new school and being able to picture their happy faces this morning as my sister described them.

-Coming across a lovely Mary Oliver quote: "Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable." As someone with a tendency to hyper-plan, these are prophetic words.

I too recently finished HP7 (for the third time) in preparation. I'm so excited I can't stand it.

Also loved the Mary Oliver quote. Poured over "Wild Geese" yesterday morning. She's beautiful.

I'm ridiculously excited too. The final book is really my favorite, I think.

Mary Oliver is always so uplifting to me. Lots of good reading today :)

Natalie asked about Weeza this morning :) Can't wait for Thanksgiving in V-town... with YOU there. Clay and I are still figuring out the final plans. xoxo Ash
