day of grace, week two

explanation here

1. This week (and every week, but especially this one) I am grateful for my children - both of 'em, stubborn, crazy-making, and wonderful as they are.
2. Home-made croutons (absurdly easy! and tasty!) on romaine lettuce with fresh-shaved parmesan and italian dressing.
3. A long, good, hard nap. I've been fighting the good fight with this sinus thing for a week now, and today - it beat me.
4. A shiny coffee mug, full of pens and pencils and nail files and scissors. So many possibilities.
5. New books. I got a box of books in the mail and it makes me absurdly happy to think of them waiting for me.

What are you grateful for?

I am so grateful to be able to choose what to eat for breakfast every day of my life. So grateful to have the food, as well as a choice!

Grateful for being warm and cozy inside while the fluffy white clean snow is covering up all of the dirty yucky gray snow. It looks so pretty out there!

The hot buttered toast I am eating, the hot tea I am drinking and the fact that my children have found the headphones for their Gameboys again so there is (almost) silence!
