About Me

Thank You, Thank You Very Much

For your reading pleasure, my Tuesday edition of Monday Listicles.

A few days ago I visited the tremendous site of Gala Darling with it’s emphasis on Love and Gratitude.  Today, I made my first gratitude list.  In perfect harmony, for this week’s list we were asked to make a list of 10 thanks.

Universe, I marvel at your amazing synchronicity!

I am glad on’t. What a fearful night is this! (from Julius Caesar…it’s been sitting on my desk awhile…attempting a reread but got distracted by other books)

Not many.  When I’m at the office I say “Hi” to a few people.  When I work from home just the dog.

10 Things That Make My Life Easier

Life isn’t always easy, but there are so many things that I’m happy for.  In fact, I had a hard time keeping this list short.

Here’s my list of the 10 things/people/services that make my life easier –

  1. My hubby – I’ve never met a kinder, more genuine person.  Beautiful inside and out.  Brings me hot chocolate, hides the marshmallows.
  2. Books – Keep me dreaming and make the world awesome.
  3. Music – I can’t function without music.  If I can’t play it I sing.  When I’m sad it makes me cry and I wallow in the blues.  When I’m happy it makes me laugh and I rejoice.  It is the nectar of the gods.  It is the language that transcends all bounds.  It makes it possible for me to concentrate and get stuff done.
  4. Sushi – Om nom nom.  I can eat this stuff every day.  Delicious.
  5. Friends – There when you need them good times or bad.
  6. Comedy – If you can’t laugh you are probably dead.
  7. Family – Sometimes crazy, sometimes wacky, but always loved.
  8. Manual transmission – Especially in a sporty, little roadster.  Zoom, zoom.
  9. The salon – Nothing beats how fabulous you feel after a cut and color.  And having your hair washed?  One of the best parts of the trip.  This is also something TOUGH to pull off easily at home.
  10. My dog – He’s always there for me. Woof!

That’s my list for Monday.  Go check out some of the other people on easy street at The Good Life.

Thanks, readers.  Later!
