One thousand gifts and still counting (2901-2935)

boursin mashed potatoes
a train rumbling past the windows of the restaurant
dinner out with grown-ups
a sleepy child secretly waiting up for our return
island coconut coffee pods

birdsong in the morning
grace on sleep-empty days
a delicious aroma of scented candles in the car
a friend with good gift-giving instincts
an open Friday

coconut muffins
good rains
longer daylight
gardens of lilies
an impromptu visit with old neighbors

Amy's friendship
M&Ms
windy days for warm kitchen talks
helicopter seeds
wine bottle candles

dinner with Linda
her birthday song
a little boy's delight of vanilla scented bathroom
easy tears
the story of friends like sisters

surprise birthday parties
celebrating loved ones
a last-minute babysitter
(oh, those mashed potatoes)
three desserts when I just wanted a taste

aging faces of infrequently seen friends
Joel in the driveway
her smile in Uncle Jeff's arms
an expecting friend
a good homeschool review
