Thursday Gratitude

Today I am grateful for many things:

  • Mostly my husband 🙂 I love him so much! So many people never find their special someone, I am so lucky to have found him. ❤
  • The Beatles
  • The drawstring slipped inside my favorite skirt, but I was able to nimbly retrieve it without difficulty this morning 🙂
  • I managed to buy the gift I had in mind for the husband’s birthday at a store last night *whew!* (I did have a plan B in mind if it wasn’t there, and a plan C!)
  • We’re getting air conditioning!!!
  • Gum ammoniac is apparently great for gilding, who knew. Grateful I bought a jar ages and eons ago.
  • Cake!
  • My work friends, have so many of them! ❤ Dr. Graves and Dr. J get mad props in particular.

  • Remembering to post Thursday Gratitude on Thursday 😉
  • I saw a hummingbird at our hummingbird feeder yesterday morning, yay! (We’ve been refilling it as it empties but until now had no confirmation it was a proper hummingbird eating it)
  • Have a dinner date Saturday with friends, yay 🙂
  • Blogging – been going through my old LJ and there are a lot of memories in there that would’ve been lost forever if I hadn’t blogged it so yay. 🙂
  • The ticket count is down at work *whew!*
  • We made it to the Mini dealer on time yesterday for hubby to collect his Mini (Grantham Alldridge) (We called it the Mini Day Spa ;))
  • That I have a husband who is so playful 🙂 Love him! (He named his rental Mini Burt. I love this man.)
  • What we thought was a weed in the front planter has turned out to be a pretty yellow flower. 🙂 Don’t know if we planted it or if nature did, but it’s lovely. I should take a picture.
  • Found a new Jullian Fellows series to watch on Amazon; Dr. Thorne. It’s set in the 1840s, love the dresses!
  • People who post pictures of cute baby animals on Facebook for me to see. Eeee! (Friend has some baby bunnies, so cute!)
  • My tangerine-colored linen-cotton shirt. Got it on sale at WinterSilks and LOVE IT. I would wear this every day if I could.

Today I am grateful for many things:

  • Lax application of dress codes at work which result in me being able to wear a tie dye dress today, hee 🙂
  • My white knit cardigan I got at Target, love this thing. And the annular broach I use to fasten it too.
  • I walked into Dr. Teich’s office right when he was suggesting Dr. Syed and he go see me about a form, heh. So… I guess I’m grateful for good timing?
  • I am actually quite glad we’re not going to Pennsic this year and grateful that I didn’t *have* to go.

  • The MiddleWiki July contest has been great! 30 new user accounts created, 35 people have done updates and are entered in the contest. Woot!
  • Old photos
  • Happy memories; been going through my old LiveJournal, 2004 was a heck of a year. Became Oaken Signet, got outsourced, got married, served on Royal Staff… kind of surprised I did all that and still did scrolls, worked on art, made stuff, etc. So let’s be grateful I journaled too!
  • The tea party Saturday went well, niece said I’m a good hostess. woot!

  • I have a ride home today (Husband got off work early)
  • While the labform is still broken, no one is complaining about it. Very nice of them to give me space to work on the problem. (Crystal Reports hates me, I think. Don’t let it hear that… I don’t want to incur more wrath… )
  • control-z
  • Reliable internet connections
  • This summer has been remarkably mild thus far.
  • cherries
  • The husband has promised to cook dinner tonight since he got home early I shall walk in the door to a prepared meal. How awesome is that? 🙂

Thursday Gratitude (Friday edition)

Once again I missed posting on Thursday, mea culpa. But there is much to be grateful for so here goes.

  • First up… I was given the Dental School’s Dorothy Caplin Staff Excellence Award yesterday at the annual staff appreciation lunch. Was very touched and moved. I guess they do appreciate me after all!
  • Coffee, through which all things are possible
  • Got a good picture of my boss making a goofy face at the luncheon. It’s the little things, eh?
  • My lab form works. My Crystal Reports foo has been strong this week.
  • I am having a good hair day
  • The temperature has not been too bad lately, it was downright lovely earlier this week
  • Not happy about my car breaking down, but very grateful that I had the funds to get it repaired and let’s face it, 13 years is a good run for a car with no major problems!
  • I have a plaque to hang in my office 🙂
  • Glad that cold was short lived
  • Ever closer to our air conditioning install! Can’t wait! eeee!!!
  • My yuccas are blooming and my daisies, yay flowers!

  • Brother-in-law is in town, Love my bro-in-law Frankie 🙂
  • We have tickets to actually hear Joe Lovano play this time while they’re in town.
  • Air Conditioning. We are getting it for our house. YES! Hard to pull the trigger with how expensive it is but I can’t wait to live in AC.
  • Yesterday was the University’s big Day of Giving; Dental School used pics of me as the Tooth Fairy to promote the day which was fun. I do love being the Tooth Fairy!
  • James doesn’t do award scrolls, but he did one for my husband and even used natural pigments, made a special trip to deliver it and gave him a hood. I mean gods, man! How humbling such a gift!
  • My peacock Persian coat
  • We’re busy as all heck so I thought my boss might frown when I asked to go home early sick… but he said “Go home” with speed and authority.
