Taking the full measure of life

Good Things

If you're new here and want to understand the title and purpose of my blog, you can read my first post by clicking here. You may also want to subscribe to my RSS feed so that you don't miss further posts of interest to you. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you'll stop by often!

The curves of my legs (I’ve certainly always enjoyed the function, but appreciating the form feels good.)

The meals my husband has made me while I recuperated. (It used to be that if I asked him to do anything beyond boiling water, he would get a panicky look in his eyes. These days, he can put together some right tasty meals, and I have to say that sometimes I think he has a better sense of spices than I do.)

Red lipstick (Need I say more?)

Local, organic corn on the cob (Little is as naturally sweet and delicious as corn fresh from a field.)

This insanely beautiful, not-too-hot & not-too-humid weather we’ve been having in Georgia. (Georgia, in July, with the window open? Don’t wake me up. . . .)

My husband fixing the bedroom doorknob (There’s nothing sexier than a man in his element.)

Kitties who curl up beside me while I type (Their adorableness is consistently astounding.)

Fireworks (They still seem magical to me after 27 years of watching them.)

Hope (That kernel, however tiny, that sustains us through difficult times)

    Hope is the most beautiful of things…I had a lemon tree named Hope. I’m glad you’re finding hope in the midst of hard times, and I hope your husband, kitties and the world around you take good care of you and bring you more good things. Much love!

    Nice gams Sally! I’m glad you seem to be feeling better.

    There are few women that I know that can really pull off red lipstick — and you are certainly one of them — just gorgeous.

    You’ve inspired me to think about my “good things.” Thanks Sally.
