Life is Good

Picture to the left is Brayden Lee tasting grape tomatoes for the first time. We saw them in a magazine we were looking at together, so I got them out of the fridge so he could taste them. Notice his buddy, Joey, next to him on the stool.

In times of stress or even just life getting a little bizarre (because, after all, the latest car incident hasn't been all that stressful for ME), it's always a good idea to count your blessings. So here's what I'm grateful for today:

--My house is clean (enough).

--My laundry is done.

--I talked to my daughter and grandson first thing this morning. All is well with them.

--I sat down and had breakfast with my husband this morning.
  • It's not snowing out.
  • Spring will get here.
  • I am feeling very good physically.
  • I have spent a lot of time quilting lately.
  • I have a valid excuse (no car) for not going to a luncheon today.
  • I finished reading Jane Austen's Emma last night.
  • It's almost time for race season to start back up!
  • I saw a beautiful sunrise this morning.
  • After being quiet over the holidays, my Yahoo group has livened back up again
  • I found bed raisers on Amazon, where I have some money left from a gift certificate! These will be used to raise my cutting table in my quilt room.
  • My grandson is spending the day with me tomorrow. I have a present for him. I took a picture of Joey (the killer cat) on the "quilt" Brayden made for him (see my other blog ) and have framed it for his room. I know he will love it! Picture to the right shows Joey on his "quilt".
  • I woke up this morning 5 minutes before the alarm went off.
  • My not having a car right now is a blessing in disguise -- I save money by not shopping, not running to the grocery store during the week, not buying gas. It's all good.
  • I'm back in touch with my friend, Karen, from New Hampshire. She's been a friend for more than 20 years and I'm so delighted to hear from her again!
  • I'm back in touch with my sister, Sarah. She actually hand writes and mails letters. It's such a joy these days to get a hand written letter!
  • I love my life.
It's just the way I'm feeling today -- it's all good.

How exciting to be thought of as something you are grateful for! Joan, I feel the same way.....for some reason we've always been able to stay friends throughout the years and distance. You're one of those people who I feel comfortable talking to about anything! You made my day with your comment...and gave ME somthing to be grateful for!
