gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • A weekend perfectly suited to catch up on the many indoor projects, like editing photos (LOTS of photos), ironing linen, and sewing up cushion covers
  • The amazing smell of citrus throughout the house as James makes grapefruit and orange marmalade
  • Peppermint tea
  • Our Christmas/winter tree is still fresh and holding its needles
  • Lady pheasant outside our kitchen window
  • An uneventful cataract repair surgery on Thursday, and the amazement of being able to see more than I have been able to in the past five years 🙂
  • Making plans to visit friends in February
  • A victory at this week’s Saturday night Scrabble march; it was a perilously close match and great fun
  • James’ homemade onion bagels — some of the best he’s ever made
  • Finishing up the last of the Christmas/Three Kings/New Year gifts. Finally!
  • An awesome bargain on a new hammock for our summer garden 🙂
  • Coming home from grocery shopping to a clean lounge (thank you, James)
  • Trusting my instincts regarding another’s intentions, which sadly weren’t exactly honorable
  • Allowing myself to rest and recuperate the past few days, even though I “felt fine”
  • Pear and dark chocolate pancakes for supper 🙂

And what are you grateful for this week?
