October 19 Transformations

It felt like the icy grip of Winter was upon us this weekend, but it was simply a Fall symphony accompanying the dancing leaves.  It was a welcome break from the dreariness of the rain and gave us the chance to transform the front yard into a ghoulish spectacle.

Today I am thankful for

  1. the soreness in my back, reminding me how much I enjoy helping to create our front yard experience.
  2. the smell of the furnace kicking in for the first time this year.
  3. the neighbors that stop and say hello, share our little joys and a few giggles.

For what are you thankful?

  1. It was a chilly drive from my home to work this morning and as the heat poured through the car vents I decided that today I am thankful for:

    1) Silly movies with a bit of hidden meaning where I laugh out loud in the theater.
    2) Feeling accomplished even if there is still a pile of work to be done.
    3) People in my life who put up with all the eccentricities in my personality and seem to love me anyway.

  2. For the first time in 4 days, the sky was fully blue, pavement dry, and both kids free of the sneazles. I am thankful for:

    1) Hot soup, Hot Tea, and snuggles under blankets when kids are feeling rotten and need love and hugs.

    2) Share the hours of the day and night with friends and loves who offer humor, insight and laughter.

    3) Warm Pumpkin pie, chilled whipped cream and a sip of bourbon, at the end of a early fall dinner.

  5. I’ve been thinking about winter, too. We just went through an unseasonably cold week of weather and the days are growing shorter. Soon it will be time to set the clocks back.

    So today I’m thankful for
    1) light therapy boxes
    2) warm cloth (fleece, wool, silk, polypropylene)
    3) hand lotion
