Under a twilight moon.........
50 :: High on branches turned to roosts, 36 chickens huddle together with deep throat coo's
51 :: a kitten catches her first mouse and MEEEOOWS until we admire it and give her the praise she deserves
52 :: short grass glistens in the moonlit dew, father-in-law who drives riding mower here while Matt is gone away for a week. Not because he has to, just to lighten a load.
53 :: Pink and Lavendar cosmos turned heavenward, to peer at the same
54 :: wood, curing, as temperatures drop
55 :: A dog's low growl, as she dreams of hunts and chases
56 :: A house sits, quiet. dark. A single window alight, glowing from within. All others glow with the whiteness of moonbeams.
Within these four walls.....
57 :: A Papa loves dearly
58 :: Children sleep in a bear cave, an owl's nest and a rabbit hole
59 :: Windows close, air too cool by morning to be welcome
60 :: A sewing machine sits with green and pink fabric, birthday present in the works for a not-so-little girl anymore
61 :: pained gums on wee one as tooth juts through into toddlerhood, finally drowned by sleep
62 :: cinnamon pickles soak, waiting for tomorrows "big day"
63 :: a handful of books lie still, marked with slips of paper and scribble drawings, all awaiting the next free moment
64 :: cold milk in the refrigerator, yum
65 :: dishes dry by sink, done by husband tonight
66 :: a woman feels not limited, but expanded by her ability to be home
67 :: a girl counts days until her birthday. "One more full one and one more night until then!"
68 :: a husband's arms surround his wife, then sleep turns them both and wife wakes up with arms around her husband
69 :: the dimple in a Panda's cheek when he smiles
70:: a boy who sleeps soundly with a perfect face, after a very near (within inches), very scary fall into an outdoor firepit the night before
71 :: food in the pantry
72 :: boxes of grownup books, being unpacked after a year without bookshelves enough to hold them.
73 :: newly hung, freshly stained bookcases, floor to ceiling. Husband said " Don't buy that JUNK at the store-bookcases need to be REAL wood, I'll make some for you" and after a while, he did.
74 :: remembering old friends
73 :: cookies made by 90 yo Gram, despite the fact that even just walking is hard work these days
74 :: singing Psalms and Johnny Cash
75 :: fine point sharpies in very fun colors~ oh the letters I will write!
76 :: A woman sits, counting her blessings, and realizes the list could go on
Celebrating these bits of beauty with the gratitude community~
