Daily Reminder # 446

Bird watching is boring...  Do we have to?
Well, I slept REALLY late but woke up pretty rested and to the good news that Irene has been downgraded to a tropical storm and that New York came through it all with some flooding, but generally unharmed. My friend in Cape May is safe with a friend and so far all seems pretty good.  I didn't feed the birds yesterday and I think I won't today. Originally I had planned to do extra but I think I'll see how the wind blows.... literally.  Horrible as these storms are, they do leave the air feeling clean and alive in some way. That's it. On to gratitude.

Is that the chipmunk? I like the chipmunk... no.... sigh.

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an attempt to persuade the Universe, with all it's creative capacity, to respond to my gratitude by manifesting that which I have thanked it for. )

What great kitty pics and what a great list too.

I was reading some old comments today and clicking through to see if some of my former readers were still blogging. I have 4 blogs now!

Hope all is well and the storms have passed. Hugs, G
