{Gratitude Lately}

Thursday, September 12, 2013


Lately I've been thankful for Velcro shoes that stay on and a sidekick to run errands with.


For new hand-hammered fenders and a working rear derailleur.


For hot dates that include fried pickles and cotija cheese.




For chocolate croissants & coconut macaroons for breakfast and a best to share them with.


For basil bouquets and a late harvest of tomatoes.


For emblems that remind me of my childhood and a neighborhood that I adore.


And for afternoon snuggles with this dude and Tempur-Pedic Pillows to sleep on.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
What have you been grateful for lately?
Happy Sunday, brave ones!

Oooh! I love fried pickles. Do you have a recipe you could share? Yes, yes?

Grateful for someone who lives 4,000 miles away and whose blog starts my morning out on the right foot. Fried pickles... who knew!

For rainy days that remind me of Ireland.
For new friendships you didn't see coming.
For dreaming of vacations far away
For a husband who shows me daily that my heart is safe & has found it's resting place.
For Pumpkin spice lattes & their reminder that Fall is following close behind them!

I'm trying to figure out your dog situation. Are both the lab and the weimaraner yours? If so, how is the weimaraner with new people/dogs?! We're thinking about another pups!

For crisp chilly fall mornings
For surprise chocolate zucchini bread from a co-worker
For a long walk in the perfect sunshine at lunch
And a show finale tonight that's been 7 years in the making

Cheers!

for rainy days that beat the heat
for pimples that vanish overnight
for changes that effect my forever
for this blog that keeps me smilin'

That's my week. Thanks for writing.

for local festivals that are tons of fun (Mount Angel Oktoberfest)
for friends that decide at the last minute to drive 4 hours to join in the fun
for weather that is gloriously warm to enjoy the fun in!

Fab! Love these posts!!
Grateful for my platypus water bag, to get me through long hot runs.
Colleagues who praise each other and share ideas and resources.
Technology to keep those we love in touch and close to us.
Quiet mornings by the pool

Xx

Grateful for my health. A dear family member just learned he has lung cancer and never smoked a day in his life. The dog photo bomb brightened my day. You are wonderful!

For U-pick farms and enough apples to play with for quite sometime. For Americas test kitchen's recipe for apple fritters. For growing pains. And for weather so good I want to drink it like a milkshake.
