It is a sunny morning – finally a morning free of smoke in the air, so I can see the clouds building in the eastern sky – wishing those clouds meant we would get a nice, gentle, soaking rain without thunder or lightning. While there are other things I could be doing – that I don’t want to do – I think I’ll join Cee and friends and share more of my world.
Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? Well now, that depends on what food we’re talking about. I like nuts – in cookies, cakes, salads – Hmmm. I guess the answer to that shouldn’t have any “it depends” in it because I think I’d probably eat anything with nuts in it. So – short and to the point – with nuts. Thank you.
Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? This one really does depend – on whether or not I’ve closed the closet door. I’m a lazy door closer for interior doors, and often just do not bother at all. A lifetime of having either small children or pets has pretty much taught me that there’s no such thing as privacy anyway, so what the heck.
Are you usually late, early, or right on time? In recent years, I am almost always early because I tend to get very anxious if I think I’m going to be late. Sometimes, however, the elements or whatever work against me but still I am rarely late. Maybe just on time, but not late.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Presuming “this past week” includes today and yesterday and the day before, what I am most grateful for and appreciative of is the diminishing level of wildfire smoke in the air. Each of these three days has gotten better than the one before, and today I can actually clearly see the sky and the clouds and even the hills behind me. Oh what a relief it is.
I am also appreciative of the antics of the many little chipmunks that run around my yard – despite the fact that one came in the other day and I don’t know if it’s found it’s way out or not. So, in that vein, here is yesterday’s chipmunk photo.
