I want to remember a wonderful day, a happy day, and so, the horses of Shackleford Banks in North Carolina, on the day last year that Kelsea and I went on one of our adventures.

The Bad Day:
– continuing to nip the identity theft in the bud
– being lied to and cheated by someone once dear to me
– having two spots being biopsied for skin cancer
– Mr. Man deciding the mud room is his litter box
– Mr. Man catching a mouse and putting it in the bed
– spraining my thumb trying to get said cat/mouse out of the bed/house

I’m working hard to find the lesson and blessing in today.

Quote of the Day: “Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.” – Rumi

Daily gratitudes:
Seeing MKL
Eternal hope
Anne of Green Gables
Late-blooming irises the color of violets
The little painting that Kelsea brought me from a street vendor in Paris

We sat on this porch in a pair of white wooden rocking chairs and listened to the wind in the sea oats and the waves lapping at the sand and said we could have been content there for hours.

Quote: “My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”  —  William Shakespeare

Daily gratitudes:
That MKL and I are now formally  and officially engaged!
A day to relax
Patterns of sunshine
Happiness
Downpours

Kelsea insisted that I take this picture of these two seashells snuggling, and I’m glad she did. This pair was found out on a great wide flat beach at the tip of Cape Lookout National Seashore. We accessed the point by ferry and by “Mule Train” (the latter of which I was disappointed to discover was just a seat in the back of a pickup truck, and not an actual mule train), about a 10 minute ride from where the ferry dropped us off. On one side of the point was the sea and on the other side was the sound. Contrary to most beaches I’ve combed, our driver said the bulk of shells, such as whelks and conchs, could be found on the sound side. We figured since she had been telling people that all day, that the sound side was fairly well picked over, so we crossed the vast sandy desert to the sea side and discovered treasures such as this one, as well as the sand dollars featured in a post last week.

Quote of the day: “When I walk down the beach and smell the salt water, hear the waves crashing against the shoreline, and feel the granular sand under my feet, I can’t help but realize why I’m here on this green earth” — Wendy Joubert

Daily gratitudes:
My new phone
The lushness of green as summer edges towards fall
Sleep
Clouds
Tiny girls in tutus
