Shay’s “Fireblossom Friday” at Imaginary Garden With Real Toads challenged us to make a list, any list that spoke to us. I’ll be away for two days and when I come home, I will have just missed Lex, who’s attending his family reunion this weekend, so…

…this was the only list worth making.    ;^)    Hope Y’ALL have a fun night!  Peace, Amy

    Why not help nature on its way? Great preparations .. I think that last sentence put the perspective right – made me smile

    I would have hoped Lex would be opening the door before you finished this.

    There is a charming inevitability and a lilting romance to this list of very ordinary actions that lifts it into the extraordinary. I love it, Amy.
