November 20 Fallen

with one comment

I was sitting on my back porch yesterday and was reminded that I had forgotten to post Three Thanks by this leaf .. which drifted so close to me that I just held out my hand and it landed there. I snapped this awkward picture that I munged via some random iOS photography app, and went back about my business making chicken soup and cleaning the bathroom. It’s almost Thanksgiving, and company is on the way.

Today I am thankful,

.. for Mister Clean Magic Erasers.

.. for three cancelled meetings that transformed into three quiet hours of happy work.

.. for falling leaves, and kittens.

For what are you thankful?

November 5 Boots

with one comment

We have a vagabond. I named her Boots. Not so original, I know – but I was trying not to get (too) attached. She’s sweet, and skinny, and definitely an independent cuss. Monti has already hissed and spit out her disapproval. But Boots, well she’s a honey badger in a kitten’s fur.

This week so many people have been displaced, and are starting to feel the vagabond sting. It will be a long haul; I hope we are resilient in our attention through the holidays.

Today I am thankful

.. for Boots, even if she strays.

.. for everyone that showed up this weekend and gave so generously to support the American Red Cross Sandy Relief efforts.

.. for violas, pansies, and rose-resistant gloves.

 

For what are you thankful?
