Today...

...I was sewing (something that I've been doing a lot of recently) and I was feeling quite chipper.  You see I leave tomorrow to see my wonderful brother and his wife! And I was anticipating the amazing time that is sure to be had with such a combo--just that thought alone would make anybody happy-- *smile*  But that wasn't all,  I was almost done with all my sewing that I had to get done before I leave--and this thought alone is enough to dance for joy over--, and I was thinking that I needed to pull out my flip-flops because when I leave VA I'm not headed home...I'm headed to Florida!  Yep, that's right!  Aren't you jealous?  I know I would be if I wasn't the one typing this!

BUT anyway, not to get sidetracked...as I was thinking one thought led to another and pretty soon I was thinking of a bunch of little things that I was grateful for right then.  So since it never hurts to be grateful I thought I would share some of them with you...


  • hair flowers!  Especially bright pink ones:)
  • sharp scissors 
  • friends who give me really good reasons to make a trip to FL
  • flip-flops
  • kefir (if you know me at all you had to see this one coming)
  • homemade raspberry jelly (I don't know where we got it...but it sure is good)
  • my iTouch to liven up the silence
  • chocolate chip cookies
  • guitars, and a brother to play them with

So...what's something you're grateful for?  Don't think about it, just type the first thing that comes into your mind:)
