Treasures

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you.

(Jim Croce, Time in a Bottle)

In the spirit of Participation Positives, I am starting my own "meme", which I'm calling Treasures. Throughout the week, I will try to make note of little treasures in my life — positive things that strike my fancy, things that make me feel happy or thankful or interested — things that are worth remembering, even in just a few words. Then at the end of the week, I'll post my list. Feel free to do likewise.

This week my Treasures include

  • an interview! I didn't get the job but they seemed to like me and they say they'll hold onto my resume
  • a faint but visible 120 degree arc of rainbow out the east facing windows at last Tuesday afternoon
  • Christmas decorations on our street (now that it's mid-December :-)
  • Edamame
  • Thursday – sitting shelling soybeans - and my ready "helpers"
  • 4 furry friends
  • a spouse and a good friend who were polite when I burnt the vegetable soup :-(
  • full moonlight through our sunroom (moonroom) roof at night
  • an extra bowl of fruit at closing time in our favorite diner ("Here, he made too many!")
  • the sound of rain on the roof
  • the greening of the hills with the winter rains
  • two mule deer strolling along the side of the road today
  • slanting sunbeams
  • a Christmas tree (I swear!) on the top of Sweeney Ridge (elevation 1200 feet)
