A Weekly Offering of This n That

Rainy Day is my alter ego. She is the little angel that sits on one shoulder and whispers in my ear to forgo that 6" piece of triple chocolate fudge with the four scoops of ice cream on it; she is also the little devil who sits on my other shoulder and convinces me that I can eat just one bite of each and be satisfied, and then laughs with such great abandon when in fact, I eat the whole thing, she falls off my shoulder. Mostly, Rainy Day helps me see the humor in living and, mostly, she encourages me down the right path. Not necessarily the straight and narrow one (how fun is that?) but the path that offers the most adventure and fun.

Rainy Day is Thankful

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and Rainy Day hopes all of you have a wonderful day, filled with great and glorious wonderments for which to be Thankful.

Rainy Day's Thankful list contains, among others not listed:

The Elections are over. Finally.
She has re-connected with her biological brother and sister.
She has a large Family of Choice.
Her children are healthy, happy, and on their own.
There is no turkey for her oven (she has a duck thawing)
She has a small dog (aka 6am Alarm – or Paco Belle, if you prefer) and a large cat (aka Tashiko) to love and be loved by.
She has a computer, and can actually use it to some degree of proficiency (OK, she can turn it on and off).
She quilts, though she doesn't design her quilts.
She takes photos that others enjoy.
She has sold three novels, and has two more out, shopping for agents and or publishers.
She is healthy.
She is happy.
She doesn't have to brave the madding crowds to shop (she makes most of her gifts).
She lives in a nice home, in a nice town, and has nice neighbors.
If your Thanksgiving is half as nice as hers, you will be blessed beyond measure!
Oh, and there are restaurants open to serve those of us who don't want to cook and clean up the mess. Oh, indeed, indeed, so much to be thankful for!

She is, truly, very, very Thankful this Thanksgiving Day, and hopes each and every one of you are, too!
Rainy Day would be very thankful if someone could tell her what kind of flower this is. The fruit looks like a green apple and grows right from the branch.

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ―Ralph Waldo Emerson
