today i am grateful:
that i have almost gotten my home office/studio organized. almost.
for my husband who takes care of me and millie.
for an early birthday present that will be coming next week from jon's parents (a sewing machine!!! now...which one of you crafty ladies is coming to visit to give me lessons?)
for all of the new poems i read yesterday. i love poetry thursday. and yesterday i discovered some that just made me sigh out loud (and feel my wings).
for the way blogging has brought some incredible people into my life.
that many of the shows i watch have had season finales so i will maybe start reading more and watching less television (three hours of grey's anatomy this week...it was good...but that is a lot of tv).
that virginia woolf and sylvia plath walked into my life this week and don't seem to want to walk out. stubborn women.
for the flowers i bought at the tacoma farmer's market yesterday. they smell so good! though i think they are making my nose run a bit.
for a package of doo-dads from sacred kitsch studio. so. much. fun.
for some ideas that are percolating in my head after reading this book by Lynne Perrella. (stay tuned.)
that i discovered a wonderful store yesterday that sells crafts and other "stuff" made by senior citizens. this is how these seniors make money...they also sell other random things like a big bag of buttons for 50 cents and a bag of rick rack for 25 cents (the great old school, soft, cloth rick rack).
that this weekend will bring time with friends. i. have. friends. here. finally.
for moments of contentment and wonder and silliness and strength and laughter and calm and awareness and balance.
and i am also very proud of my husband who got a summer job teaching physics at a community college (during the school year he teaches high school physics). he has also started a blog, but he isn't ready for me to share it with you yet. hmmm...hopefully soon.
hope you are finding moments of gratitude in your life today as well.
