a peak into my gratitude journal this week ...

Gifts # 1383 - 1410

- the sunset filling my rear-view mirror on my way to work
- my sweet husband making dinner
- the beginning of my tulips poking through the ground
- folding laundry
- a summer schedule that has me all excited about all things summer
- living near a park
- greeting Christopher when he comes home
-  the way Loki shakes when he is wet
- clean sheets (and, yes, the heated mattress pad that is still on)
- opening up windows briefly
- getting good sleep
- tea. It seems that every month I renew my love affair with different teas. I hope the ex-es don't get jealous.
- our fridge stocked with fruit
- almonds
- learning during lent
- examining the way I spend my time - in order to spend it the way I want
- warm showers
- cold glasses of water
- pajama days ... and knowing that those are okay (when you work your entire workweek in three nights, they are also needed)
- playing Carcassone on the floor with Chris, shooing Loki away when he threatens to wreck havoc on our cities
- a new toy for Loki = hours of entertainment
- a little bit of over time at work (by the way, we are WAY ahead of our savings goals so that is just icing on our already really yummy cake)
- the whirl of my sewing machine
- my head full of ideas for things to make
- an invitation to join a group of friends
- Loki learning to obey at obedience school
- a lunch date with my love on the calendar for Saturday
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
