#7

Today I am thankful that I took a walk in my neighborhood with a friend.  I miss having a walking buddy (you know who you are!) and it was wonderful to walk, talk and pray together.

It is always been good doing things together. Not just alone but enjoying someone's company makes us feel better.

Dear Willow, thankfully there are still people like you, who like to make things by hand. My passion is drawing, painting, but lately I seem to spend more time baking. With the storms in the North East and most of my neighbors out of electricity for over a week. I baked chocolate chip cookies, the standard for comfort food. I have and old steam, natural gas boiler in my house, no electric starter, only a pilot light. Maybe " back to basics" is the way to go in this "new normal." We will all have to retrench and be examples of the ethics that our founding fathers treasured. I have been burning wood in my wood burning stove, and use it as a back up. Many of the homes around here are cold and dark, so we need to invite our neighbors to share our warmth. Maybe being proactive and "old school" will be a good reminder with regards to what is absolutely essential. My house dates from the 1830's when many amenities we take for granted today didn't even exist. Its a thought. Cheers from the Jarvis House.
