I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving. I’m running late again, but here’s what I am thankful for this week!
Wednesday: hot showers. I’m obsessed with them. And hot baths. I get in…and never want to leave. At least during these colder months!
Thursday: hot coffee. I’m not quite obsessed but it is so nice to have something hot in the morning right now, and since I finally discovered that I like it fairly weak (scant tablespoon per 8 oz water), I enjoy it so much more! Is there any one else that finds Starbucks coffee way too strong or am I a freak? Wait. Don’t answer that.
Friday: TGIF! Nuff said!
Saturday: Woot diddly doot! We got Den’s trucked towed and fixed! Thank God our IRS tax refund came in right when we needed it! Not that we wanted to use it to fix the truck, but without that money we would have had to dip into our emergency fund, which we’re trying to build up. Sometimes things just work out so nicely.
Sunday: oh, a bad day! You know the kind, during a certain time of the month when you also happen to get into a fight with a relative and can’t make it right and you end up crying in bed all day? That was this day. But our friends Ben and Ashley (if you read my food blog, this is the Ashley who gave me the white chili recipe) invited us over after the evening Church service for homemade pizza and to watch the Superbowl. Totally turned my frown upside down! This was the best time I’ve had in the company of others for so long, I almost forgot what it was like! I’m so socially awkward I can’t fully enjoy spending time with anyone other than Dennis, but this was incredibly relaxed and lovely. Plus, Ben being the gourmet chef he is, made us pizza that I won’t soon forget. He can even do the twirly thing where you throw the dough into he air to spin it out! I wanted to get him on camera, but I forgot my memory disc so I’ll have to get pics next time for you. Here’s a picture of this dynamic duo that Ashley let me steal from Facebook:
Monday: the slow, relaxed feeling after a workout and a hot shower. mmmmmm
Tuesday: I got a really sweet card from my friend, Cameo, consoling me over the fight with my relative on Sunday. Her and her sisters are really good friends and they always make homemade cards with their own artwork on them for every occasion, and receiving that card was such a comfort to me. I feel so blessed to count her and her sisters as friends.
