I’d like to mention the editing for this shot, but as it was done a few months ago on my iPad, I don’t recall.  You’ll just have to enjoy it without further edification.  🙂

No, I’m not talking about not commenting or being on Facebook. But the level of accusation, anger, and animus there and other places these days makes me more fearful for the world than the issues being “discussed.” If we can’t talk nicely, even if we have to eventually agree to disagree, then these are very dangerous times indeed. So I was imagining if all those “a” words I just referenced went away, because we were all doing what our moms tried to teach us.

At least not at the same time.

Stop!  Time out!  No political talk. It’s too late.  Voting has begun and will continue relentlessly until it’s all over, finally!

Let’s jettison the negativity and instead, let’s assume an attitude of gratitude.  Some of my friends and acquaintances are listing one thing each day for which they’re thankful.  Let’s try that.  I’m going to start and I’d like everyone who reads this post to list in a comment at least one thing for which they’re thankful.  It will do all our spirits good and is a great way to start or end a day.

I’m thankful for:

my family
a great church family
a great work family
a great blogging community
books
good food
travel
photography
thrift stores
being outdoors
having a place in Wyoming
horses.

OK, it’s your turn. I want to hear from you and I want all the positive noise to crowd out everything else for just a bit.

Oddball with eyeballs. Something’s definitely fishy here!  Looks like a pretty serious conversation.  No one’s keeping a stiff upper lip, but there are certainly some stiff lower ones.

Open and closed in Colmar

Do you like the windows open or closed?  I love to have them open.  If the mornings are cool in all seasons except winter, I open everything to air out the house, bringing in not only fresh air but the sounds of nature.  I’ve learned the hard way that if it will be hot, I have to close everything up before the day heats up or I lose the advantage of the coolness.  But oh, how I hate to have to do it! When visiting my s-i-l in France, I’ve learned to use the shutters to keep the sun away while still leaving the windows open if possible.

On the other hand, my husband, working now from home almost all the time, would never open anything unless it were a door to exit or enter.  If I’m gone and he’s at home, the house always smells stale when I arrive home and I hope for weather suitable for window-opening.  I prefer natural coolness, although I certainly appreciate air-conditioning in the hot, humid Midwest.

How about you?  Are you a window-open or window-closed person?
