mood slowly improving

so for today?

I am grateful for

turkey soup

shawn's good mood

the red white and blue knitting



missed yesterday

which is okay. I was in no place for gratitude. I was in a MOOD, and I can only blame part of it on hormones.

This morning has not started much better. I was awakened at 6:30 by growly, grumpy puppies, a ferociously sore from the cold pit bull (who, since I have been chastised roundly for apparently abusing her or something, I am no longer disciplining, period) and I have burst into tears for no reason twice.

I am trying very hard to be grateful for something, because I have no reason not to be. I'm alive, I have a job, I have enough yarn to knit a bomb shelter if the apocalypse comes, and I'm done with the edit from you know where.

Ponders. Nope. Still in a foul mood.

Maybe by tonight I'll be able to get past it and be grateful girl.

the day after


I'm still a zombie from all of the food

so, what am I grateful for today? (this is supposed to be good for my health, btw)

the way the couch cushion fits my Sadie's body so she can sleep way up there

Hell's Kitchen marathons

old wives' tales told by gigantic black ladies named Jessie Mae (rest easy, Jessie Mae. You will be missed. Tell my mom hi and dig some good baits for her)

the pink and brown shawl of look at me do increases

water crystals and shit

yeah, so I'm kind of a skeptic

especially after having a screaming fight with my brother last night over what can only be flat out bigotry...


today I am grateful for...

the redhead offering to break kneecaps on my behalf without qualification

fuzzy yarn

basset hounds

fall weather

good coffee

ta da!

okay, it made me smile, which is good, huh?

oh, and harry connick Jr. (yum)

home home

back from the trip. Rome rocked. South of Spain was awesome. Loved Sint Maarten.

I have film to develop (my film camera is way smaller than my digital) and stories to share, but I just want to revel in home.

the dogs, the house, my bed
