Since Michelle is hosting a gratitude week, I thought I would list mine today.
-for all the sunrises I witness each morning and for the time change that makes the mornings a bit brighter for now.
-for the first frost last night and evidence of a snow flurry
-for the cold air so I can wear wool
-for all the knitting, past-present-future, that fills my heart with joy. For new favorite mugs and old favorite mugs and the green tea I drink.
-for phone calls from the kids and hearing what they're are doing
-for dinner dates with my husband, lunch dates with friends
-for the preschooler who is delightful, funny and sweet as can be
-for Holly's bravery as she tries her best to sidle up to Frodo. This is Holly and Frodo being together in the photo above. Frodo is under that ottoman to the right.
-for Frodo who sees the glass half full because he really really thinks he can catch Holly. This will never happen, she is too fast!
-for new blankets and throw pillows for the family room
-for upcoming holidays where I will be with family (and my house will be full AND there is so much work to be done before that)
-for good health and all the happiness I have
- for daily sketching to improve my skills
-Ravelry and the many many rabbit holes I have fallen into seeing what I want to knit
-for that day almost two years ago when I found a nearly dead kitten on the side of the road
-for believing that one day these to might 'cohabitate' quietly. Instead of the hissing and barking that happens rarely, but it's noisy. Last night they were both full of energy!
Lastly for all of you dear friends, the ones that comment and the silent readers. I appreciate you returning to read this blog which is nine years old. I love to talk and blogging gives me an outlet to do so. Thank you for listening.
What are you grateful for?
