Full of Grace

1. A slow and easy early morning kayak outing on a lake as smooth as glass to soothe my jangled nerves.

2.  The simple pleasure of toasting, and of course eating, the perfect golden brown marshmallow.

3.  Sharing a beautiful night at Yankees stadium with the family -  hot dogs, cracker jacks and Jeter figurine giveaway day.   I am not a big fan of baseball but I do love watching my Yankee fanatic partner and Jeter obsessed daughter enjoying the game.

4.  Being able to donate a bumper crop of beans to my local food pantry.  And they keep on coming.

5.  That there are people like this is the world.


  1. I dislike the jangled nerves part, but everything else made me smile and brightened my day a little. I was on vacation all last week and we had a campfire almost every night - it was bliss. And I'm a die hard Yankees fan; I'm not from New York so have no problem declaring that from the rooftops! So glad you were able to find a way to enjoy the evening.

  2. This post gave me a few moments of peace, or grace. Thank you for remind me of the things that really count. Love to you, 8, from me.

  3. I look forward to your Tuesday posts, like e said, for a few moments of peace or grace. Time with family, simple pleasures, natural beauty, and giving back - I think you have found the antidote for the anguish and frustration with humanity. And I love the tree preservationists. Blessings to you.

  4. The kayaking does sound very peaceful.

    And I love that those folks built around the tree!

  5. i love this, 8. i realized reading about your beans that i could have planted just plenty of beans (and of course tomatoes) and I should have. :^) your summer with beans (ha ha a blog title .) is assuring.

    i've never been to yankee stadium and when i am a fan (not always) i am a true blue red sox fan. and if you ever become a not-always fan, i would expect you to be also be a true blue red sox fan :^)


    1. My partner is gracious and forgives my many sins. But being a red sox fan would be grounds for divorce. But I will say that I've been to Fenway (to see the Yankees play) and found it to be the most charming stadium I've been to.
