Here is today's list of things I am grateful for.
1. Bonding with Jen
2. the hawk (sharpshin?) sitting in the tree outside my kitchen with it's kill ( a black bird) in it's tallons
3. I continue to get a lot of enjoyment out of my first portrait painting even though I didn't touch it today
4. Getting Mike's critique of said portrait
5. arranging the plants on my deck now that I have my new table.
