Each Wednesday I post about some sort of treasure I found during the past week. It might be thrifted or found on a walk or whispered in my ear or discovered on a dark shelf in the basement. Something. Anything that makes me feel lucky and thankful. It doesn't necessarily have to make its way home with me - it just has to be noticed. The idea is for it to cost very little and feel very big. After all, this isn't about acquiring new things; it is about paying better attention to the world around me.
If you discovered a treasure this week (a new friend, a snow fairy, a fancy dish at the thrift store, a bird's nest) please do share it, as well as any links, in the comments section below.
This was Sophie and Chick's first official love fest. (Sophie is a bit of a scaredy cat)
Last night, after dinner, Chick approached her with a tinkling voice and quiet foot steps, and she began to look outside to see what Sophie was watching. After a bit of murmuring and nuzzles, I encouraged Chick to scratch behind Sophie's ears and at the base of her little head. Slowly, Sophie's cat eyes drooped and her body stretched into a straight narrow line. They spent the next half hour snuggling and noticing each other.
