It was a gentle weather day, a blessing in January.  We are preparing for Stock Show weather, which means C-O-L-D.  It will be a high of 20 on Saturday for opening day.  I know I’ve been rather boring lately, with little but the weather and an occasional thought. Trust me, I’ve been thinking, but mostly I’ve been workingworkingworkingworkingworkingworking.  Another two weeks of constant work and I hope my thoughts and my blog will be more expressive.  I miss me.

Quote of the day: “Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you’re alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.”  —  Norman Juster

Daily gratitudes:
Geese in flight
Soft pajamas that you can’t wait to get into
Not having to wear a coat on a Colorado January day
My chicken purse
Space cowboy boots
