I was born on a Monday.  At two in the afternoon, so they say.  At my age, fair of face is more a matter of growing in grace! If I can gracefully bear, and gracefully strive…what more could one ask of a Monday? For my new week and yours, here’s a partial list of things I’m thankful for:


Work to do and a nice place to do it:


A squirrel, a clean birdbath, and some pink flowers:


Happy veronica:


And a lizard keeping a low profile in Hardin County (thanks as always to sister Kate for these delights!)
