Treasures 2004_20

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words,

I hope you'll consider starting your own list of Treasures. If you enjoy this sort of thing, take a look at the participation positives web ring.

These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • Cotton candy clouds at sunset
  • Raven's Coming Out Day (or birthday, as we celebrate it; we're not sure exactly when Raven was born and he says he can't remember that long ago; he was only a baby at the time!)
  • A phone call from Bari on the occasion of Raven's 2-year birthday, and 1st anniversary of his Coming Out and Joining the Family Day. We love you Raven.
  • Nice notes from friends on the Colecoons list all sending Raven best wishes.
  • Some wonderful closeup photos of Bebop and Squirrel that turned out very well I think!
  • Nearly nightly "chats" with my Dad over AOL IM.
  • Pretty weather, with plenty of light by 6:30. I wake up naturally about 6:30 without need for the alarm.
  • Realizing how thankful I am for our automatic clothes washer, out automatic clothes drier, and our automatic dishwasher! Thinking abut how different things were 30 or 50 or 100 years ago...
  • Bebop melted into Rich's lap
  • Raven hopping into bed for a snuggle in the middle of the night
  • Squirrel beside me in bed in the middle of the night, cuddled close, head on the pillow. I gently pet him and his paw curls around my hand, drawing it closer into a hug.
  • Bose Quiet Comfort 2 noise-canceling headphones and Internet Radio (
  • Loreena McKennitt
