He’s a treasure trove of photos. He’s been scanning them and putting them into a secret Facebook group, where we can all see them.

The herbs are still alive.

A few weeks ago, I bought a couple of potted herbs from the grocery store – thyme and peppermint. Feeling pretty good because they’re still alive. I’m planning on making a little garden area next to the steps of our main door. I can keep things going if I see them all the time!

Tender young sheep sorrel in our salad!

I was able to forage a little bit. Didn’t want to take too much since the plants are just coming up.

So glad we don’t have to live with angst.

We’ve been listening to Keith Urban’s newest album today, and some of the songs are rather sad, about people breaking up and stuff. But Trav has stayed, so no sad stuff here.

I can close my mouth again.

I had a tooth pulled, a molar that had started coming out of my head and I couldn’t shut my teeth properly. I got a cavity above the enamel and it got infected. Now that it’s gone, I can put my remaining choppers together. Yay!

Every day is Valentine’s Day.

Pine needle tea.

Gratitude Journal No Comments »

I went on an edible plant walk. There wasn’t much to nibble on, but I did learn a lot and especially about pine needle tea. It’s full of vitamins C and A, plus it tastes good! I’ve been foraging in the empty lot kitty-corner from our house. There’s a few sand pine trees over there and the tea is quite pleasant. And of course I always thank the trees for providing.

I admire Kelly’s inquisitive nature. Happy birthday, Kelly!

Lap kitty.

I love when a cat comes to sit in my lap.

Low electric bills.

We get a capital credit at the end of each year, and during the winter our electric costs go waaaaaay down. The weather has been beautiful this winter! Hardly any very cold nights and lots of temperate days.

I admire Justina’s selflessness. Happy birthday, Justina!

New stuff!

Even though we’re trying not to accumulate new things, I needed some non-sneaker closed toe shoes for the cold weather. I found some nice boots – thank you, Dad! That’s what you got me for Christmas. I also found some neat tie dye socks to add to the collection Kelly sent me. And, I got a really cool new purse.

The sunshine felt good on my face.

Warm, but not hot. I love to turn my face up into it to get the full effect.

I admire Greg’s ability to team up with Jeannie. Happy birthday, Greg!

They make such a great pair.

Trav made a Facebook Live video so I could share in his trail experience.

Trav has been enjoying his bike rides.

He went 30 miles the other day and saw alligators and other neat stuff.

I admire Trav’s sense of loyalty. Happy birtday, Trav!

I surprised him!

With some birthday gifts… an Altoids bike emergency kit, tire pump, and misting water bottle.

Time passes quickly when spending it with people you love.

In this case, it was a yummy birthday dinner and Cards Against Humanity with our friends Al & Sue.

Missy is always close by.

She sleeps with me most of the night and sits on my lap a lot of the day.
