Thursday Ten: Gratitude edition

1. No, I didn’t miss a day though I came close – but I have four hours to spare so I have yet to break the streak. Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Thursday. Here is a post.

2. I’m not a fan of holidays without my children. I got to spend a lot of time with my niece – and that was lovely. It wasn’t the same. Adjusting, guess that’s the name of the game.

3. I am thankful for the people in my life, the roof over my head, that I can love and be loved. I am thankful for what is and I am thankful for what isn’t.

4. It’s been so long since I’ve actually sat down to read, but I downloaded Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar the other night and I have been reading ever since. It’s perfect to read in small doses and the advice given in the book is moving me in ways I hadn’t expected and I keep finding myself highlighting passages to go back to again.

5. I woke up this morning, went to the lake and walked around. About four and a half miles on a beautiful fall day – nowhere else I needed to be, nothing else I needed to do. It felt good to take the time to just be. Winter is coming and I need to hold on to these beautiful days and spend the time I can spend outside before snow flies.

6. I haven’t started the “Arrested Development” marathon yet. I did just finish watching “Beasts of the Southern Wild” though.

7. Every year I binge on turkey and potatoes and stuffing and say I will never eat again. Meh. As I type this I’ve got a slice of ciabatta toast with butter. (I love Thanksgiving dinner. It’s my favorite. I’m also very glad I worked out this morning.)

8. This post is taking me a long time to write. Which is fine because… I have time.

9. I can’t decide if I’m going to do Black Friday shopping tomorrow. I’m having a hard time getting into the spirit.

10. I am thankful, I really am… but I’ll be glad when it’s tomorrow.
