A thin veil of haze softens the hills beyond the lake. The sun barely brushes them now, at this time of night, as the days shorten inexorably toward autumn. A touch of coolness is in the air, as occasionally the wind ripples the still-green aspen leaves. I revel in the fact that I am here on the deck, today's task list crumpled before me, with time yet to spare before the downy comfort of the bed calls to me. What a treat it is to have the opportunity to write a post that I can link up to my favorite linky parties!
(My Corner of the World is hosted by Betty. It opens on Wednesdays at 12 am New Zealand time and is open for a week. In this era of armchair travel, it is a fine way to tour the world!)
August has delivered many blessings, and yes, you will have to sit through all of them! If my list isn't enough, I am sure you can find more positive news and inspiration at Thankful Thursday and I Like Thursday. (Thankful Thursday is hosted by Brian's Home, and opens on Thursdays for 7 days. I Like Thursday is hosted by Lee Anna. Let her know if you want to participate and she'll include a link to your blog!)
Blessing One: welcoming #1 Son home!
Blessing Two: 29th anniversary with Spousal Unit
Blessing Three: picnic at the lakeBlessing Four: new runner for our dining room table - found during an antique shopping trip with a friend
Blessing Five: fresh vegies from the garden of a friend
I suppose I could have included critters in my list of blessings, but I have so many to include in this post that I think they deserve a category of their own! Please check out Saturday's Critters, hosted by Eileen. You're sure to find a critter that you like!!!Friday used to be my favorite day of the week, but now that I am retired, one day runs into the next. But there are four great linky parties on Friday, which give me another reason to love this day of the week! Floral Friday Fotos is available every Thursday and remains open until the next Wednesday.
Skywatch Friday is hosted by Yogi's Den; it opens on Fridays and remains available for seven days. If you are wont to look to the heavens, this is the linky for you! The picture to the right is one of many taken during our hike on the Highline Trail with #1 Daughter and her boyfriend during their recent visit. A full re-cap of our activities will be the subject of my next Mosaic Monday post, so come on back, y'all!
