1. I woke to the gentle call of a hoot owl. It was a peaceful, mellow sound that made me in no hurry to get up.
2. Today was a day set aside for more garden clean-up. Most days are committed to other responsibilities and the list of outdoor chores builds each time I pause at the window. But today was the day I eagerly awaited and brrr, it was cold!
3. I am extremely thankful for gifted teachers. Whether they be through schools, or books, or churches or whatever. It makes such a difference to sit under someone who is passionate about what they teach, articulates it well and speaks with educated authority.
