151. A Personal Greeting from a Great Blue Heron

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

One morning this week, I was in a traffic jam close to home. (I’d tried to go around a traffic jam but was still in thick traffic, moving slowly toward a stop sign.) Up ahead of me in the distance, I saw the silhouette of a great blue heron flying. (I know their silhouette!) It flew toward me. Yep, definitely a heron…. It continued to fly straight toward my car and dipped a little right smack in front of me, then flew on behind me.

It was just nice. Instead of being grumpy about the traffic jam, it gave me a big smile.

150. Sonderbooks Stand-outs

Saturday, January 7th, 2017

It just makes me happy to choose my Sonderbooks Stand-outs each year. They’re my personal favorites out of all the books I read that year.

It makes me happy to remember what wonderful books I’ve spent my time with.
