Gratitude 2020 – Day 12

A little bit of spice-- I am enjoying my cup of black coffee this morning. Only it isn't really black. It has a sprinkle of red Cayenne pepper in it, and a touch of cinnamon. The spice I'm shaking today. Cayenne is wonderful. I can feel it in the back of my mouth and throat... Continue Reading →

Gratitude 2020 – Day 11

It's Monday. Mondays are the days that people complain about in songs. It's the day most 40 hour work weeks begin. We shake off our weekend moods and paces and get back into the fray. Boy howdy was that true for me today. But I still have time for gratitude. I make time for it.... Continue Reading →

This morning we went for an early walk, the grass was iced over. The air was crisp. I thought about where I was feeling most grateful today. The answer came as my cheeks pinked up and breath came out in clouds of vapor. What has been uplifting, soothing, calming, and energizing in my life? What... Continue Reading →

Gratitude 2020 – Day 4

It's Monday in the Valley and there's freeze warning until 9 AM. My cell phone tells me it's 34 degrees outside. This wouldn't be a big deal except that a week or so ago we were in the 80s. I guess California winter has arrived. Which brings me to my #gratitude for the morning. #Thankful... Continue Reading →
