I'm trying not to count the number of minutes left until the end of my work day (103, if you're curious) ... especially since this is a four day weekend for me! We've had plenty of gloomy weather in Sacramento lately ... which is not helping me get through the monotonous task of pushing a button ... waitingggggggggg ... and then pushing another button ... waitinggggggggg ... that I have ahead of me for the next (now) 96 minutes.
I have big plans tonight to curl up with a good book, a warm blanket (which seems so weird to be saying at the end of MAY), and a couple of snuggly pups -- hubby will be happy to have the big TV to himself to play his latest game (my way of saying thanks for dealing with soggy walls, a parade of construction workers, and multiple hospital trips over the last three weeks).
While I'm waiting to make my escape, I thought I'd share some fun finds with you! My new favorite (non-crafting-related) blog is THX THX THX: A Thank You Note A Day. Author, Leah, practices gratitude for things big and small with daily handwritten thank you notes. When I first stumbled upon her blog, I happily expected a fair amount of snarky humor, but was quickly and pleasant surprised with the genuine way she finds something sincerely worth appreciating every day. I definitely recommend adding her site to your daily blog roll ... and if you feel up to the challenge ... taking time to genuinely appreciate the little things in your life.
So, here is my exercise in gratitude for today!
There. I did it. And if you're so inspired, you can too.
