Gratitude 6: Some little things...

Sorry about the maudlin tone of my blog of late. Thanks for sticking around with me being all gloomy.

Anyway, today I just want to note some little things that made me happy today. Like:

  1. Coke. About 3 weeks ago I gave myself a week's break from my current soda break. The break from my break has continued. This is a different way of saying I'm drinking soda like a fiend. Maybe after the holidays I'll have a good reason to give it up again.
  2. I have 2 50% off coupons to Old Navy that are good starting tomorrow. I'm getting a good chunk of my Christmas shopping done - wahoo!
  3. I am loving the word "wahoo" of late. I must have said it 500 times on blog comments, FB comments, emails, you name it. I don't really like it, but it keeps creeping up (see above).
  4. I keep singing The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash. "Oh, the whirlwind is in the thorn trees - it's hard for thee to kick against the pricks." I've said it over and over in my head for 2 days. The song has all this second coming imagery and references to scriptures set to a catchy tune, but still, I'm wanting it to get outta my head already.
  5. I'm getting excited for Thanksgiving. I already know what I want to make - yams, green bean casserole, rolls, a lemon meringue pie and an apple pie. Mostly cause I want to eat all those things myself. And Thanksgiving Eve is just a week away.
  6. I like my fall decorations and have so enjoyed my house decked out in orange-y splendor. But it will be fun in a week and a few days to get out the red, white, and green.
  7. For 5 minutes yesterday, Ben did his reading all by himself. On one hand, it makes me really happy. On the other, I wonder where my baby has gone.
I guess what makes us happy is the tiny details that make each day unique. Today I'm grateful for those things. What little things are you grateful for today?

not water. Seriously. How bad would life suck without a water heater?

Also that my clothes still fit despite the fact that in the last 8 days I've eat FOUR cheeseburger-and-fries kind of meals. WTF??? ;)

(And of course, that stands for "what the fetch.")

Also, I saw that you called and I called you back but you didn't answer. I'll be home today!
