Simple Things

July 16th, 2010 · 9 Comments

Happy Birthday, Christina!!!  I am so thankful to have met you here on the internet.  Your words and images always inspire me and lift me up!  In honor of your birthday, and arranged by another sweet heart on the internet, simple things!

  • catching tadpoles in our pool ruins and watching them change day by day into frogs
  • listening to the cicadas
  • watching the red squirrels relax and nap on the branches of our apple tree in the heat of the day
  • my youngest son coming food shopping with me now that camp is over
  • my daughter and youngest son’s delight that our deer brought her two spotted fawns along with her yesterday evening to eat the fallen apples
  • the soft whirr of the ceiling fans
  • playing Molkkey with my family every night that it’s not raining
  • staying up late
  • sleeping late
  • salmon on the grill
  • little green tomatoes that promise to be large red tomatoes in a few weeks
