joy list monday

Such full days here in the waning month of August. So much reason for gratitude.
Simple joys...
Garden bounty to enjoy today and enough to put by for later.

Taking time for a day's outing: acres and acres of antique machinery of all sorts.

Being able to step outside the door and snip tiny bouquets any time the spirit moves.

Tucking all the chicks in for the night knowing they'll sleep safely.
Here's Rosie, mama hen, about to step into the senior bungalow, always the last to bed.

Calling on neighbors in time of need and being there for them when they need you.

A clean, comfortable bed at the end of a long day, shared with the partner of a lifetime.
Enjoy the week ahead. Be well.

Happy new week to each of you.
