Treasures 2006_31

Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads.
-- Henry David Thoreau

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. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • Bright red and yellow watermelons, sliced in halves and quarters, on display at the grocery store.

  • Cool breezes.

  • Getting back both my company ID badge and my spare car key after I temporarily lost both.

  • Dinner with a friend we haven't seen in a while.

  • Chatting in ASL with my fellow CalTrain rider in the mornings. I'm getting more fluent, especially at understanding.

  • Some very nice compliments from people at the Job.

  • Watching a woman knitting with a gorgeous iridescent variegated yarn, a ribbon yarn called "Checkmate".

  • Watching ravens playing near the Mountain View CalTrain station.

  • Working at home on Friday for the second week in a row. I feel so much better after I work at home.

  • Working at the computer as Bebop sleeps in the buckets over the monitors, making little sleeping kitty sounds.

  • Seeing six or eight ducks geese flying over us.
