Happy birthday, Alyson Stanfield and thank you for posing a challenge to us on your day. You know, I always like to play. So here goes, with challenge #5, my gratitudes.

5. For our trusty wood stove keeping us warm in Arctic Vortexes. And for the security of knowing we can cook and heat water for watering can showers during power outages.
So I hope your day is full of surprises, Alyson. Thank you for all you have taught me.
Artists; if you need help with your business, Alyson’s site is the place to start.
