One thousand gifts and still counting (2106-2127)

piles of pulled weeds
Dad and Linda over on a Sunday afternoon
more boxes unpacked
the ring of the captain's bell
fruit salad

internet, returned
cable music feed
a happy phone greeting
the light fixtures in the hallway
muffins with white chips and craisins

a friend's new son
how good a week feels
deep sink and interesting faucets
slate floors, however temporary
the garden weeding bench on wheels

ice cream in the freezer
a handmade blanket to wrap on shoulders
lights along a twisty, stone path
my dad's compliment
a week of friends, daily

dinner gifted, gratefully received
school books, ordered
