Today I am grateful for:

The smell of this afternoon’s rain (OK, it was just a sprinkle, but it smelled great!

A 59 degree day during the last week of May in Las Vegas.

My friends and family, and my e-friends I haven’t met yet.

Not losing my temper today (not even a little).

The Cubs won 5 to 4 over Texas.

The beautiful Christmas wine glasses Susan gave me (and the pinot grigio in one of them).

Molly is finally asleep. 

Puppy snores.

I have a job.

Bailey (and her brothers).

Books, books, books, books and more books.

Apricots from Susan’s tree and onions from Tom’s garden.


Rudy (the movie).

The kids on my street (especially Sean).

My health.

My Tacoma.

My garden.

My garden bathtub, and bubble bath.

My new friends weren’t injured (or worse) in the attacks on Kandahar.

My slippers (well, the left one anyway.  The right one is slightly chewed.)

Vanilla yogurt (with no gelatin!).

Kleenex with lotion (bless me).

Honeysuckle and night-blooming jasmine.



The smell of baby powder.


Phil Jackson’s genius.


Red toe-nail polish.

Night lights.

The blue room.


Snooze buttons.

Shortbread cookies.



and my baby tomatoes.



  1. It’s wonderful to see you writing again! And thanks for the reminder to take some time and think about what I’m grateful for.

  2. “I have a job.”

    Oh? Do you care to explain?

    I am glad for you. :-)

    • I remember posting something about it last month, but it must have been only on Facebook. I’m the training assistant for Battlespace Flight Services at Creech AFB. The company does maintenance on the Predators here in Nevada and in deployed locations wherever bad guys hide. :^D

      The pay is lousy, but the job is wonderful! And the drive is to die for: 35 miles of lovely desert and not too many drivers on the road!
