Five Good Things

When we have an extra loaf of Dutch Oven Bread, it's Sunday morning, and the chicas have been laying, laying, and laying... we get to make a special breakfast. Dutch Toast. Eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and that barely stale, home baked bread, made even more spectacular with Maple syrup, from Laura and Gary in Wisconsin. Oh my.

Good Things...

1. Anna Banana came over and we shared a brisk walk, in cool weather, with birds in sight.

2. Jules cut my hair, and gave me tips for coping with my changing hair texture... I'm curly! And thanks to Jules, I have never felt so comfortable and delighted with my own hair, on my own head. This level of serenity is life changing!

3. Max said, Besides summer break, he hasn't enjoyed a break as much as this weekend. I'm so glad he has two more days to enjoy this rest.

4. My hens are gentle, sweet, big, beautiful darlings, who sit on my lap and make dear chickie noises.

5. We celebrated Geoff's birthday this week... and my heart bursts with gratitude and affection, for him, for our life together, our children, our dreams, and the sweet, safe, and hopeful way I feel when I think of him.

I enjoy your good things, too… won't you, please, share?

1. Walk with Natalie Van and Maria was fruitless, bird-wise, but highly enjoyable anyway. And I came home with tuna!
2. Forgiving myself for not noticing my friend's new haircut, Radiant beauty yes, haircut no.
3. Big day today will be over tomorrow, and I will say yesterday was a big day.
4. Hoping the internet is right and dog Toby has a virus that will be over in a week.
5. Grateful the internet was fubar and prevented me from buying a jacket I don't need.

There are always 5 good things.
