Gratitude: Wax paper wrappers and the black lace sunsets of winter

A few things making me happy (as part of my ongoing gratitude journal):

Wax paper wrappers
driving home - sunset on easstern NC
Black lace sunsets
soap bubbles
Fresh almost-silent bubbles in the kitchen sink
January moss


Mom, Dad, baby Woodsherry
A surprise blast from the past
SNOW in Winston
white carpets

Sharing a slow, secret smile
SNOW in Winston
Red berries in white snow
Leaving a big, smeary, unapologetic mark on the world
party lights
Converting holiday lights into party lights
coconut cake
Wedding cake
Dancing on black and white tile floors
yellow asterisk
Finding a yellow asterisk on the sidewalk
A new generation discovering the toy box of my youth
Cork board reminders
jamaica theme decor
Old-school party streamers
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Old-school recipes
bruised grapefruit
The bruised ones are the best ones
The stained glass freshness of citrus fruit
tent closeup
The warm, damp-canvas smell of a tent drying in the sun
“Again!” – When one word says it all.
leftover BBQ
To the hostess goes the leftovers
my pretend octopus pet
Spying a new octopus friend
Page Captures: "building stories"
A whole day to spend elbow-deep in storybooks
Tequila Sunset
Sipping on a new flavor; a cherry for now and a cherry for later.
morning window in bedroom
The luxury of morning sun filtered through bedroom curtains
How loved you are when you’re holding a bowl of cereal
winter clouds out the window
Dramatic winter skys
The puzzel of how to get all the batter off the whisk

It’s not so easy to keep a good woman down.
purple cabbage
Purple velvet
roasted eggplant
Roasting makes everything yummier

Words that follow you around till you make them real.
