gratitude sunday


gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • Nights around the fire with superrelaxed fur bundles (see above)
  • Receiving our first Christmas card this week from friends far away
  • Lots of good eating this week — curry, sushi, vegetable tempura, and today’s hastily thrown together gumbo
  • My first (and second!) sale in the shop (where there is a 20% off sale going on for just a few more hours, btw), as well as a custom order for some special Christmas gifts
  • The wave of nervousness when shipping out the first order, fretting that the buyer wouldn’t like her purchase, and then quickly reminding myself I’ve done a good job and, besides, there’s no pleasing everyone no matter how hard we try
  • “There’s Always Tomorrow”
  • Sacrificing much of the weekend to finish a big project (kind of a pain), but the feeling of accomplishment afterward is pretty great
  • The hot water bottle in our bed, around which my flannel pjs are currently wrapped, waiting for me (thanks to James)
  • Tea, the many cups of PG, chai, decaf Earl Grey, peppermint, that have warmed these dreary last few days
  • A gently snoring Boo
  • Yarn sales
  • Waiting for my new 2013 calendars
  • The increasingly higher stacks of cut wood outside our backdoor
  • Only twelve more days until vacation 🙂

And what are you thankful for today?
