Enjoying the Ordinary

 
Rested, goofed off, gave myself a break today. My brain and social skills are pretty fried from the conference. I did my 3-mile road loop walk for exercise. (Maggie doesn't do that with me any more.) Didn't see anything spectacular, but there are ordinary things which can bring on a smile.

And, too far away for good focus, but boldly standing in the road, a deer. She was keeping her eye on me, though.

I picked up 50 cents worth of bottles and cans, and hunted for any wild grapes. I don't think there are any of those this year, either.

Tomorrow, it's "back to work."

The deer turned back, and found you.

That it can tell its friend for a very long time.

Ah . . . the joy of the ordinary. If communing with a black-eyed susan or watching a doe watching you is really ordinary. Things like that always seem special to me. It's like they are tiny miracles.

Flowers always make me smile. It is good that you took some time for yourself...everyone needs a little relaxation time. Blessings, your friend, Catherine

It's always good to see flowers. I haven't seen many flowers here this year.
