Giving thanks



5 things I am grateful for:
1. phone calls from my traveling husband.
2. Hot tea, especially Earl Grey.
3. The crescent moon
4. well-written books, and eyes that see well enough to read them
5. long, meaningful phone calls from far away friends

I can't remember if I have posted this photo of a horny toad or not.

beautiful horny toad! Liked your #4 - "for having eyes that see well enough to read". We often take that for granted.

Hi Karine - I love horny toads and sadly they are disappearing from Texas. So nice to see you have that one visiting. thanks for sharing your list, Earl Gray is my favorite too.
hugs from pugville!

I have never seeen a horny toad, but I love him. He blends right in with the landscape. He might be a good one to paint

If you look in the SW sky tonight Jupiter, Venus, and # 3 on your list, the crescent moon will be very close together emitting a trio of bright light! That horny toad is awesome!

Amazing creature!Do they jump or run?
No. 4 is a good one. I couldn't live without my books.

Robyn, the horned toad runs. I have never seen one jump, in any case. I do think they are exceptional creatures!
