I'm baaaaaack!

I enjoyed a wonderful break away from home and away from my blog, but it is good to be back. The only problem now- I have so many Happy things to share, I don't know where to begin!

First, I hope all my readers in the United States had a pleasant Thanksgiving. I know it is a holiday that holds some controversy, many feel like it sugar coats a particularly brutal part of our country's history, but for me it is simply a day to remind me to be grateful for the Happy things in my life. Usually, on the last Thursday in November, at whatever table I sit around to enjoy my turkey-free feast, I list the things for which I wish to give thanks. This year, I'd like to include my list here on my blog:

1. I am grateful for my health and the health of my family members and friends
2. I am grateful for my wonderful husband- he's my best friend and a hell of a kisser
3. I am grateful for my baby kitties
4. I am grateful for my parents- their generosity and sense of adventure
5. I am grateful for my brother and all the cool things he does with me
6. I am grateful for both of my sister-in-laws and my other girl friends (and guy friends too)
7. I am grateful for my passport
8. I am grateful we finally got our car back
9. I am grateful that I always have available to me a warm bed, clean water, laundered clothes, and an abundance of food
10. I am grateful for books
11. I am grateful the baby kitty came into our lives, and got a great home (I am grateful for Jess!)
12. I am grateful for my hands and my feet (I get this one ;)
13. I am grateful I have the time and means for hobbies and *frivolous* interests
14. I am grateful that I get to write this blog, and that there are people who read it
15. I am grateful to enjoy this wonderful, mysterious, phenomenal planet!

That's all for now- I am sure I have even more to be grateful for, but my laundry is finished and I have to start another load (Oh! I am so grateful for having my own washer and dryer!)  I imagine that I'll be posting quite a bit between now and the end of the year to catch up for my hiatus! Until then-



  1. Welcome back! And what a nice way to return! I too can count a washer and dryer as one of my blessings. Having ones OWN washer and dryer is one of the truly great unsung luxuries in life!

  2. I am so glad you are back, too. I found myself in a bit of a void (and not in a dreamy way), and a bit unhappy without you (and your happy blog) to keep my spirits up. Please don't go away again. I will read to you if you stay... and kiss you!
