One thousand gifts and still counting (2782-2811)

big bundles of kindling wood
a first bonfire on a Friday night
marshmallows to roast
barefoot kids

blooming daffodils, tulips and hyacinths
blossoming cherry and apple trees
meeting a new neighbor while dressed in snake stompers and a do-rag
t-bar supports to hang ceiling drywall
burgers and chicken on the grill

a medieval summer reading list
cold water in the fridge
frog parties in the backyard
cardinal courting songs
library trips

a piano waltz
flower earrings on little ears
a Saturday morning sleep-in with my girl
thunder sounding
hard rains against the roof

primrose relocated by a bench
stepping stones
warm temperatures
Christy
dinner with friends at Panera

a card in the mail from a treasured friend
a hard head
Dad and Linda visiting
her kind call later
the work of joy

a muck rake
