Tuesday Thankfulness

Ah, here it is....another lazy day. I'm in my mid-summer week off. Teaching summer school means I don't have all summer off (though I will admit working only half days is pretty nice.). I've been watching old movies on AMC (Like "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken!"). I just enjoy the opportunity to sleep in, since I never get to (seriously, even on Saturdays I usually get up with an alarm) and just laze around.

Blessings this week...

1. I'm thankful for nice weather. We've had afternoon storms, but that's only served to keep it a little cooler. I get to sit in the evenings with the windows open and enjoy the cooler breezes.

2. Sleepy WonderDog...we've been seriously power napping both on our new couch and in the recliner (that we recently rediscovered...who knew it was a great nap zone?).

3. The Man...I don't write about him often anymore, mostly because being too introspective about him is painful, but this week he really helped me out. Someone who I consistently have an up/down relationship with poked me in the eye. I whined to him about it, and he sent me a text back telling me I'm awesome. I do love him to pieces.

4. Swiss cheese..serious comfort food. I had to do some comforting before I got the text from The Man. Swiss cheese helped. *grin*

5. People with the guts to do what's right. And not out of guilt or a feeling of obligation. Just because it's what right.

6. Free books. I'm on a committee that gets boxes (and boxes and boxes) from publishers. They feed my habit.

7. Running. This has been a meditative God-send for me. I'm so glad to be able to do this, and to enjoy it so much.

8. Like-minded people in my life. When it comes to prayer, social issues, religion, all of it. I'm glad to know that I'm not alone in the way I think and feel.

9. I'm thankful for the country that I live in. I don't know what to say beyond that.

10. Our soldiers. All of them, the ones overseas, the ones stateside. The ones who have lost their lives defending us and for causes that don't always make sense. Happy and blessed 4ths to each of them and their families.

    Hey, Jayne! Great list! Never worry about the timing ~ any day of the week is great to link with thanksgivings!

    Wish I could get back on the running path ~ I can't seem to get motivated to do it lately!

    I love the title/concept of your blog!

    I also have a love of books. Grad school sometimes kicks it out of me, but I'm almost done with that and then I'll be able to read what I want when I want!
