ABC Thanks (Day #18)

red-red-rose

Today I thank God for… (cue dramatic drum roll, please)

Roses (including their thorns), rainbows, rivers, and robots…

Roses are red
Violets are blue
You may be a robot
But I still love you,

Eleventh Month Kaput

home-sd-november

November, the significance of your days brought good food to our mouths. Farewell tasty friend, until 11 months from now:

In November, the smell of food is different. It is an orange smell. A squash and pumpkin smell. It tastes like cinnamon and can fill up a house in the morning, can pull everyone from bed in a fog. Food is better in November than any other time of the year….In November, people are good to each other. They carry pies to each other’s homes and talk by crackling woodstoves, sipping mellow cider. They travel very far on a special November day just to share a meal with one another and to give thanks for their many blessings – for the food on their tables and the babies in their arms.

~ Cynthia Rylant, In November

Terp·si·cho·re·an

Dancing-is

Dancing-is-part-2

Dancing-is-part-3

Notes: All dancer picture credit goes to @ballerinaproject (Stunning, seriously). I did do the design work myself. And the quote is also attributed to George Bernard Shaw, so take your pick! ‘Terpsichorean’ is a new word I learned this week meaning “a dancer” or “of or relating to dancing” (Mystery dissolved 😉 ). Anyway, though I admire this quote, with all due respect to Misters Frost & Shaw, I feel dance is the other way around: a horizontal expression of a vertical desire….😔😘💃

Happy Thanksgiving to All the Grateful (and Not)!

'Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.' - A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

‘Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.’ – A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

A requisite post.

From our family to yours: We are SO thankful for each other, & the rolls our butter does smother; For the place where our turkey and gravy does go, & for the mac-and-cheese and Gramma’s pie and chocolate leaves a little more so; For our big house with extra room, free from doom, with plants round it abloom; For football on this day & the anticipation of rides in December on a Christmas sleigh; For the Pilgrims’ sacrifices which were not maladroit, but which we (just maybe do) exploit; For this american life we live, quite grand, overflowing with cropland and beaches by which we get tanned; Still, above all, we are SO thankful for You, God, & all the things that You do; For Your ultimate sacrifice, that surely does suffice; For the eternal promises You keep, that do not come cheap; For all the blessings You willingly let us reap, & the lessons to keep; For the love and joys you bestow, Oh! how our hearts do grow … in gratitude. It will forever be our attitude 🙇.

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! – 2 Corinthians 9:15

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. – Psalm 107:1

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ”
~ John F. Kennedy

Bright Light at Night…

wild night via @JulienSolomita
Indeed…

Hey guys!

So, in case you missed the news, this happened last night in the sky over L.A. about 2 hours’ drive away from our home in San Diego:

They’re telling us it was a military missile test. But we’re telling ourselves it was an UFO. … Because, well, because who doesn’t want to have a ‘close encounter of the third kind’? or meet E.T.?

Open your mind to the universe, people. Shut out the mundane! 👽👽😮
