Thinking Out Loud…

Marking this time

I am definitely feeling the swamp of chaos.  I notice I am a bit on the jumpy side, and I have gone on a news fast for a time to be determined. It is difficult NOT to know what is going on, so that is the way it is.

I am taking refuge in the small things, the natural things, the well made things. I am listening to people of goodwill and doing my best to number among them. I delight in the birds splashing in our bird bath, a chipmunk posing on the trunk of a tree, and a damn good biscuit.

Today marks the 55th year of our marriage. Jim and I are reminiscing with smiles, laughs, and even a few tears. Tonight there will be martinis and a bbq’d steak. And hugs.

Counting our blessings….

And we send blessings to you.

    1. Thank you, Janice. Sometimes it is good to take a break, that is for sure. Some of these things seem all too familiar, and they keep coming round. So one foot in front of the other is a good plan. And hugs. 💛

  1. Yes, congratulations are in order for your long enduring partnership. Enjoy your special celebration. And skip the news, I have for some months. Be safe. Keep well. Love, Del and KoKo

  2. Happy Anniversary, Cynthia. Keep delighting in those damn good biscuits (a very good practice, in my opinion) … and good cocktails … and making whatever pleases you. Cheers!

  3. Congratulations on a special anniversary – hartelijk gefeliciteerd! Your long wavy locks look great. Hope the news fast will do you good. Enjoying the small things in life (and biscuits!) seems like one of the most sensible things to do at the moment.

    1. Thank you, Marijke! I really enjoy that we keep in touch this way. You visit me, I visit you, and neither of us has to get on a plane. Cheers and thanks for stopping by. 💛
