Today is kind of a significant day, for a couple of reasons. Most importantly, it’s my first (and so far only) niece’s fifth birthday – Happy Birthday E! 🙂 I remember bits and pieces of being five and it was a good year. I am looking forward to seeing her, and my other family members, at her party this weekend.
The other thing is that today is three months since I launched this blog. Even though there have been several posts I wanted to make that just haven’t happened yet, it’s been a pretty good three months. I am thankful for those of you who read and those of you who comment. I’d love to expand this thing and get some fiction up here and maybe some poetry; I’d love to get more pictures up, too. It will have to be a gradual process though…
Anyway, here is my thankful list for this week, in no particular order:
- the smell of old books
- free Doritos
- boxes to put things in (and things to put in boxes)
- instant cooking heat from my gas stove at the turn of a knob – I don’t have to start a fire, or feed a wood stove… though I do have fond childhood memories of the smell of one 🙂
- co-workers that share – one of them brought in banana-bread muffins today that were scrumptious
- the option to go visit family that live in another state (some people don’t have that option… or get along with their family enough to want to visit. I am super blessed with my family.)
I’m in a bit of a rush this week, so I don’t have a photo or a graphic, but I wanted to get this post up anyway. I really do have so many things to be thankful for. Do you?
