November's arrival has made me want to appreciate and be more intentional about noticing all that I am thankful for.
What better place than right here to keep track so, although I am already a day behind, here goes . . .
For one reason or another I have slipped into the habit of eating breakfast in front of the computer every morning. I suppose in some ways it has replaced the morning paper. After brewing that first cup of coffee I take a seat at the kitchen desk and check emails, blogs and often play my turn at Words with Friends.
Brett sits at the kitchen table and we converse back and forth across the kitchen.
The other day I decided to forego the computer and join Brett at the table. Looking up from that vantage point I could see into the dining room window where my neighbor's tree filled the entire view. The morning sunlight was shining onto it in a way that made me sit up and take notice. Also made me wonder why I was choosing to start my day oblivious to this beautiful show happening right in my own neighborhood.
Today I am thankful for the beauty of the fall foliage.
I'll be popping in later with Day 2.
