I really hope that Saturday is not going to be the end of things. I like Earth, and many things about my life. Also, my husband is out of town and won't return until Saturday evening, and I'd like to spend some more time with him.
Word on the street is that a powerful earthquake is going to ripple from the International Date Line and eventually destroy my part of North America around 6 p.m. Earthquake, rippling.... I'd like to take the end of the world seriously because it would be a very serious thing. Yet, earthquakes do not ripple (as I understand them now). Earthquakes are caused by plate movement: converging, diverging, submerging. My science background trumps my lack of math.
Whether or not the world ends this Saturday, it's a good opportunity to make note of what I'm blessed to have and what I've enjoyed while I've been here. Truth is, each of us is very lucky. There is always going to be someone with more and there will always be many with less. Here's what I'm thankful for:
|My country and marina|
|Friends and family .... and drinks with them!|
|Chicken Paprikash - like you can get at the Hungarian Kitchen in Wyandotte|
|Sweet creamer with really strong coffee|
|The start of summer|
|Great expectations (I'm sure this show will be fantastic)|
|The best movies|
|Ending the day with a glass of Moscato and my feet up|
