Dandelions and Picnics at the Beach
Yesterday was my day off so I didn’t go to work at all, but if I had, I would have celebrated this walk to work day that Bing announced (screenshot in my featured image). As a worker in a fully distributed company (Automattic, Inc), I work anywhere I have Internet. Frequently from the passenger side of a car.
My husband often wishes me a “safe commute” in jest after our morning coffee together. I reply that I will do my best to not trip as I walk up the stairs to my office. I’m very thankful for this work life I have and the freedom it offers.
My daughter-in-law is completely into the science of coffee. How lucky did I get? When we visit, she uses us as testers. Chris fell completely in love with the flat white coffees she made. I loved the texture and taste as well, but my sweet tooth was even more enamored with the peppermint/caramel concoction she created 🙂

It doesn’t take much. So do it. Ask if they need help. Ask if they are okay. Give a compliment. Have that chat. It does not take anything away from you…
This morning we woke up to this wonderland — and another couple of feet of snow expected in the next couple of days. So perfect.
This is an amazingly cool ice disc someone found in the woods a few hrs from where I live. Nature is so fun, unique, artistic, etc. Love it! Open the post to see it in action.
Day 30/30 – On this final day of the month of November, I am reminiscing and am thankful for our travels. This year Chris and I said we wanted to travel to 25 places in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. This left us with lots of happy memories I’m so thankful for. I will do a full writeup at some point on my other site, but for now here are some of my favorite memories:
- For November (the month in which we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US), I’m trying to blog about something for which I’m thankful for each day of the month.
