I’m back for yet another Thursday of gratitude and giggles. Each Thursday I share a list of all the things that I’ve been loving during the week.
This Thursday, I love:
– Homemade vegetable soup.
– Accidental afternoon naps
– The fact that Jellylorum likes blogging as much as I do. It seems as though every time I leave my laptop unattended this week, she’s jumped up and stolen my seat. When I first got Jelly, she used to sit on my lap while I wrote, and now it seems as though she thinks she should have the computer to herself.
– Finally dislodging the gigantic milk thistle that had taken over my front garden bed. There was a moment after I’d yanked it out of the ground when I held the weed’s carcass aloft and laughed maniacally at the sky. Because, you know, I’m great at overdramatizing.
-Puppy love! This sweet ball of fuzz is Miss Lottie. She belongs to my friends Violet and James. I visited them a few weeks back, and we spent practically the whole afternoon playing with her. She’s absolutely adorable, and she’s very, very smart. Violet sent me these photos a few days ago, and I just had to share them with you.
-Crocheting. I found a huge bag of beautiful mohair yarn at the second hand store last week, and it’s been providing me with hours of crocheting fun. I made a couple of berets and I’m really happy with how they turned out. The best part was that I didn’t even use a pattern, so I’m especially proud of myself.
They’re both currently for sale in my etsy store. I’ve got a few more projects cooking, so stay tuned.
– Christmas anticipation. I’ve gotten far too excited for Christmas already. I’ve done most of my shopping, I’ve bought some decorations and I’m already planning my Christmas baking. I need to keep reminding myself that there’s still a month to go before the big day. It’s hard not to get excited though, because I love Christmas, and all the Christmas music and decorations in the stores is getting me all worked up. I really need to pace myself a bit.
As you can see, I’ve been very pleased about a lot of things this week. What about you? What’s been getting your grin going this week?
