Today is the last day of Cancer Season, and we only have one more week in July. I can’t believe it. I’m ready for August, however. July, so far, has left me a lot to be grateful for.
Wow! Reddit really knows how to surprise a gal! Reddit Arbitrary Day Secret Santa did a great job, just like my Pride Santa last week. Santa’s note to me really pulled at my heartstrings.
I’m really verklempt. When I went to work on Tuesday, I asked the librarian if I could find books about calligraphy in either the adult’s or children’s section. Laura suggested the children’s first and I found a book in the writing section. I used to write calligraphy in high school, but I had calligraphy pens and I’ve never used a feather pen before. It’s also been 13 years since I last wrote in calligraphy and I need a refresher. I’m grateful that the library had books and I’m grateful that Laura helped me.
For the past few days, haze from the Western wildfires have extended not only into Canada, but the Midwest and the East Coast. The skies have looked like something from a horror movie. It broke today and the weather cooled. It went up to 79 today, will drop to 63 tonight, and we’ll have a few days of reprieve before the temps shoot up again. Thankful for the beautiful weather and easier breathing today.
I’m also thankful for friends and family. What are you grateful for today?
