Little happy lists, redux

November 20, 2018 @ 8:05 pm | Filed under:

Howdy. I’m finally climbing out from under a crushingly busy autumn workload, and the first place I wanted to come—blinking like a mole emerging into the light—was here. I’ve missed this space, and I’ve missed you.

I’m sitting on a pile of unfinished draft posts that I don’t know if I’ll ever finish. But I’m keen on fresh starts, and Thanksgiving week is a good time for one.

I’m rusty, though! What did I use to write about? 😉

While I’m rediscovering my bearings here, I’ll keep it simple: a list of three happy things from the past couple of days.

• Spotted a downy woodpecker on our suet feeder, and later that day Scott and I saw two nuthatches during a walk down Klickitat Street.

• Just being able to say I took a walk down Klickitat Street makes me pretty darn happy. Several years back, I heard that the chocolate-colored house from the Betsy-Tacy books was for sale. A move to Mankato, Minnesota wasn’t in the cards, but can you imagine? We could have lived in Tib’s house!! Well, I think living a block from Klickitat Street thrills me even more.

• Jane is home for Thanksgiving—for almost a whole week!

There. It’s a start. Glad to be back.

    That is the best photograph, ever. I have pale green rain boots and am now considering a color change, just for photographic effect (although, I’m all ready for Spring storms, I guess).

    Happy crawling out, looking around, and seeing so much for which to be grateful.

    Happy Thanksgiving! Before I read number 2, I was just thinking: how awesome is it to live near Klickitat Street!
