It’s been a couple of months since I have made one of these lists. I think my gratefulness comes through in many of my posts, but, well, I just really like making lists sometimes.
Antibiotics to help me feel better. I have a kidney infection going on, so I am glad I am able to take something that helps me heal.
Going to the local craft fair with my Mom. I knew it was going to be a good day when I walked into a room and immediately saw dinosaurs made for Lego sets. I excitedly yelled, and had a good conversation with the seller about how no one is ever too old for dinosaurs. And the SCHOOL BOOK FAIR was going on at the same time, so I also discussed the merits of book-sniffing with the librarian. As I have gotten older, I’ve started to appreciate small towns and the way locals make friendly chitchat. Plus, it’s important to shop small.
Being in Half-Price Books and seeing a dog who looked like Benji (remember Benji? I loved his movies!). This dog was a female, and her owners let me pet her. She was so sweet; I hadn’t realized HPB was dog-friendly. I’d been having pain spasms from my infection, but between the books and touching the dog, the spasms went away for a moment.
Going on a couples’ date with our friends at one of our favorite restaurants. I love being able to sit down with some of my favorite people and catch up and talk over a meal. It’s one of my favorite things to do.
All of the Christmas-y smells that are everywhere. SO good, and cozy.
