sunday grateful

* chilly air
* a drive into Portland
* brisk walk to a favorite chowder house
* bread bowls of chowder
* cute lunch dates  :)
* they scarfed the oyster crackers and chomped on lemons (silly kids)
* waved to the man in the lobster suit
* window shopped
* lights and snowflakes and wreathes and ornaments a plenty
* gray winter sky
* horse drawn carriage passed by with jingling sleigh bells
* a man playing violin on the sidewalk, kids danced like no one was watching
* rosy cheeks and noses
* it was so good to get out
* new kid art filling our windows here at home, a christmas tree forrest and snowpeople.
* to top off the afternoon, when we climbed out of the van at home it began to snow.  the first flakes of the season.  nothing accumulated, but to to a 4 yr old who has been anxiously waiting, it was pure magic!  

 today completes joy's  30 days of gratitude project for me.  it was a wonderful project, thank you joy for the invite!  it also gave me the kick in the butt i needed to kick off my own project 365.  so 30 days down,  335 to go.  a photo a day,  with gratitude as the thread throughout.
