Thankful on a Tuesday

1. Going up to kiss the boys goodnight last night and finding them both engrossed in their books. Calvin is reading Tom Sawyer and Dave is reading a Sherlock Holmes. Their little (actually big) snuggles were precious to this mama.

2. It rained all night last night. We could hear it through our open window in the bedroom. It was so soothing.

3. Drinking my coffee while grading yesterday's schoolwork, I love being back on schedule...it fits my personality much better.

4. Daisy's poofy fur to bury my nose in.

5. Bought new dishes last night. We were in desperate need. What fun to unpack the box and wash and put away into the cupboard. Plus they were on clearance, even better.

6. Was feeling stumped on a birthday present to buy for a special lady, prayed about it and instantly THE PERFECT idea came into mind. Don't you just LOVE it when that happens.

7. Finding new ways to stream line our monthly spending and Sweetie has put me on a new budget, that's NOT so fun, but it's the right thing to do...right? I kept looking but there was no purse & shoe budget? What's up with that??

8. While making the bed this morning, I buried my face in the coolness of the squishy pillow. I absolutely LOVE doing that...does anyone else do that?

9. My ipod, otherwise the neighbors would not take to kindly to my blaring the Rocky soundtrack while I'm on the treadmill.

10. We've started recording shows on the DVR off of the History & Discovery Channels for Calvin. He's in heaven. The poor kid enlightened us that we were abusing him by not letting him watch television. Yeah, real abused. But after getting Aunt Cathi on his side and hearing her convincing arguments...we've conceded.

What are you thankful for today?
