on birthday treats!

Not only was I at my favorite yummy place: La Bonne Bouchee for breakfast,


a hawk visited too… well, it was hunting… intensely… the wee-little birds got away (We hoped!).

on patience

Patience is having self-control to wait for something without becoming angry, annoyed or upset.


Wow… do I need help in this area!


bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like



an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay


quiet, steady perseverance; even-tempered care; diligence


1. composure, stability, self-possession; submissiveness, sufferance. Patience, endurance, fortitude, stoicism  imply qualities of calmness, stability, and persistent courage in trying circumstances. Patience  may denote calm, self-possessed, and unrepining bearing of pain, misfortune, annoyance, or delay; or painstaking and untiring industry or (less often) application in the doing of something: to bear afflictions with patience. Endurance  denotes the ability to bear exertion, hardship, or suffering. Fortitude  implies not only patience but courage and strength of character in the midst of pain, affliction, or hardship: to show fortitude in adversity. Stoicism  is calm fortitude, with such repression of emotion as to seem almost like indifference to pleasure or pain

Thank you
