Ten Things Of Thankful-Week 25
Grateful for rain- We don’t get much of it around here, so when it does rain life stops. We sit at windows and watch it fall. We taste the air as we breathe, savoring the hint of change in our
California weather. So caught up in the
glory of it all, I did not take a single picture to share with you. I was too
busy snuggling under a blanket listening to it the music.
Nutcracker- As a family of performers. Nutcracker is full swing for us. We have decided it deserves its own holiday. Well, Baileys did a brilliant bit about it. Enjoy!
This whole interwebs thing- Nothing is more fun than meeting new people. Twitter is my favorite place for that right now. Years’ worth of faith questions debated, discussed and satirized all in one place. Listening to another’s journey in faith encourages mine to continue. Micha J. Murray follows up last week’s How Feminism Hurts Men with his own story: How I Became A Feminist.
To Do lists- I am a complete failure at them, but I make them anyway. Having one helps me feel accomplished during the day because a task is crossed off. Also, learning how to graciously deal with interruptions and not able to cross anything off is the best exercise. It has been that kind of week.
Sunshine- After three days of overcast-albiet wonderful rain- it is nice to see that glowing orb again. Gray clouds frost a blue sky as fall leaves dance to the ground.
Daisy- It is that time of year when our tile floor is cold. All winter she will come, bark and bounce on the floor until I pick her up so she can tuck into my jacket. THIS is why many of my To Dos don’t get done. Who could say “NO” to a cuddle?
Watson- We had to put our red dachshund down a little more than a month ago, which left Daisy the queen of the castle. She is a spectacular cuddler, but runs out of steam during my morning walks. Two weeks ago, This basset hound joined our family. As mellow as bassets seem, they love long walks. Now I am forced, three to four times a day, to fulfill his five mile need.
Friend/Unfriend button- I wish life had one of these buttons. It would take the guesswork out of every relationship. Friendships ebb and flow. Not all people are meant to stay in my life forever. I savor the time spent, the stories and camaraderie then, sometimes, we go separate ways. No drama necessary.
Giggling- from Jimmy Fallon, to prepare you for Thanksgiving.
AND with two boys-even if they are men- anything in underwear is funny.
