We had a few cold and power-less days in our home this past week, which left me so thankful for many simple things... some lovely, some not... all a gift...
Just baked chocolate chip cookies, coffee, and conversation in a friend's warm living room.
Our tough fish, Gershwin, who survived the cold... just barely.
A thermos of hot water carried down the sidewalk.
A warm breakfast.
The oranges and pinks of sunset reflecting on the snow.
Refreshing computer-free days.
Travel book lights.
Big limbs falling in safe places.
Snowballs in my freezer.
An opportunity to clean the inside of the fridge.
Our grimy van.
Piles of wet snow gear.
Our clothes dryer.
These brilliant hand-warmers. (thanks, Mom)
When friends say the hard things.
