gratitude sunday


gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • The nine-day break from “normal” life after an insanely busy August
  • Reliving childhood memories and introducing my husband to my world circa July 1977
  • The fact that somethings remain the same
  • But also the introduction to new things, like the Nonna Veggie, possibly the best sandwich I’ve ever had
  • Morning bike rides on the boardwalk


  • Chocolate custard cones every day (only 140 calories and oh so good!)ook
  • My parents, who looked after the fur bundles and the Homestead while we were away
  • The truth that if you want your tomatoes to ripen, go away for a few days 🙂
  • Sea swimming — my favorite
  • Beach bags full of magazines to read


  • James’ winning the jalapeno-eating contest at our local chile festival
  • Watching the seasons begin to change, once again
