In bed, heating pad warming my sore shoulder. I was moving like Frankenstein today. Reading: Terry Pratchett’s Lord’s and Ladies Thankful for: so much, this beautiful sunrise is just part of a very long list

Reflection


Sunday was my 42nd birthday. I shared it with my husband, and a few close friends. We went to one of my favorite local beaches, had some cocktails, and watched the sun set.
