Gratitudes

I am grateful for:

1) Rain, because it brings out the newts who make my heart swell with motherly love. Yes, motherly love. I want to scoop up every newt I find basking in the misty rain and tell them they are beautiful, wonderful creatures who I love unconditionally. They want to just soak up the water and not be given kisses.

2) Figuring out where barns will go at the new sanctuary. It's been both frustrating and exciting creating this master plan. I think we're close to maybe being positive on where all the barns will be built. Now we just need a kajillion dollars to build the barns.

3) Pasta with broccoli, gold chard, garlic and seasoned with sage, oregano and cumin. FACT OF THE DAY: Cumin is Ruler of Spices.

You don't KNOW they don't want kisses until you try!

I am not embarrassed to admit I have kissed my fair share of newts. Their itty-bitty heads are so adorable, I just can't help myself (well I could, but I don't). :)

One day, I'm going to die of salmonella, and they can write on my tombstone "Was told not to kiss reptiles. Did it anyway."

YES.

ALSO, in the winter Ithaca, NY smells* like cumin and ice. FACT FACT FACT!

*According to my olfactory memory on the subject.

Fact: I always feel a little lost in my kitchen if I run out of cumin.

kissing newts sounds like a very nice way to spend a drizzly afternoon!
