Things to be Thankful For…

Today is Thanksgiving here and it’s full of delightful smells.  Smell is always a trigger for me and will send me back to days gone by.  I thought it maybe fun to come up with a little list of things I’m thankful for:

  • My husband who always cooks a delightful Thanksgiving.  He is always wonderful and I appreciate him more than I often say.
  • Another birthday.  I had my 36th birthday on Monday.  I remember when I thought 36 was old.    I got to spend the day out with friends shopping, lunching and seeing New Moon.
  • My family and friends who lavished me with wonderful gifts that I still have to post about.  Especially DH – I had to struggle to get the huge Levenger box inside the door when it got delivered by UPS.
  • My pets who give me a lot of joy.  Especially Jasmine and Sweet Pea, as they have eased my grief considerably.
  • My hobbies which give my hands and mind purpose and joy.
  • My home which is a joyful place for me to be.  I love being at home and it’s such a joy to be here – even when the chores pile up and I think the dust bunnies will take over.  There’s always tomorrow to tackle the dust bunnies.
  • Charlie (Little C as we call him) and Simon who have come to visit for the holiday, infusing this place with delightful kitten joy.

I’ll stop there, since I promised to keep it short but I really could go on and on.

Just had to share this cutie pie picture of Jasmine and Sweet Pea who like to sleep behind the chair.

My girls sleeping

Pure bliss!

  • Oh the kittens are so cute! I do miss having kittens. And I love the picture of the girls snuggled up together, so sweet. Looked like a great birthday haul over on flickr, so glad your birthday was a good one!

  • The puffy ones are just beautiful but I think mabel and marion would be better names. You should start saving there fluff to spin. It’ll take a while. I started doing that with my fluffy black Godiva. She decided that it wasn’t as fun or important as I thought it was. now that she’s gone I wished I’d kept up the brushing.
