Day 17 is another male cardinal. I like the easiness of this one. He's rounded, lightly shaded, and looking backwards.

"When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around." Willie Nelson

I am so blessed.
I went back to tennis practice after a two week break. It was exhilarating and enjoyable. I am so glad I took the time off and so glad I was able to get back to it.
I spent a day in the glass studio working on a few new projects. I enjoy the process of creating new pieces and coming up with new images.
My mixed partner and I played a rather interesting tennis match. It was not a enjoyable time, but we were able to get through the match, chat about it and feel better about our strategy and partnership.
My Thursday partner was away this week, so I played with a player whom I had not met. We had a great match and a great time together. It was so enjoyable and rather rare, to click with a partner on the tennis court right away. I was grateful to have the opportunity to play with such a good sport.
The winds have been super fierce this past week. The waves on the gulf of Mexico have been huge with 10- 12 foot swells. It's been unusual and quite the sight.
