{Gratitude Lately}

Lately, I've been thankful for


Cocktails by the fire 
on a beautiful autumn evening

Delicious souvenirs 
from an unforgettable vacation

The sweet smell of pipe tobacco

Walks in the park with this goofball

Lifelong friendships that 
remain strong in spite of distance

Beautiful sunrises that 
make getting up early worthwhile

and sharing my life with this man,
 my best friend and husband for 27 years.


It's been over a year since my last Gratitude post. Thank YOU for remaining constant friends and followers while I get my blogging mojo back in gear!

Happy Sunday, friends!

    1. Thanks, Andi. Glad you enjoyed it. I "borrowed" the idea from another blogger (Today's Letters). Look forward to seeing yours one of these days!

  5. What a great fall we've had - just picked tomatoes yesterday still and I have flowers still blooming. Wish it would just stay this way until May!

    1. It's been a wonderful fall, hasn't it, Lisa? And now we're supposed to get a little snow tonight? Guess it had to happen sometime, right? I guess I'd rather have snow than ice. And, I suppose that's the last of my roses... :(

    1. Thanks, Vicki. I'd like to make this a weekly post, but we'll see. Once winter rolls around, I don't take as many pictures.

  7. Love all the warm fuzzies!!! :) AND, so happy you are back!

    Get the audio of The Boys in the Boat. I thought it was very good and think you will, too. However, I get how the timing has to be just right. :)

    1. Thank you, thank you, dear friend!! It feels good to be back. My reviews are short and sweet and I'm not worry about how often I post (and I'm certainly not looking at my stats!). It's just nice to be chatting with all of my book buddies once again. :)

      I'm definitely going to wait and listen to The Boys in the Boy. Just couldn't get interested in the print version. First things first, though. I'm listening to The Martian (on CD) in my car and The Girl in the Spider's Web on my Nano. Now to find a print book to read at bedtime...

      Thanks again for the warm welcome back. Much appreciated!
