Ten on Tuesday: 10 Some Things For Which I Am Thankful
Off the cuff and, as they say, in no particular order...
I'm thankful for glass cleaner, a squeegee, and quick-cleaning the kitchen windows yesterday (on the outside, anyway). Now that the leaves are off the trees, I get direct morning sun through my east-facing windows. I don't usually see that part, leaving the house most days at about dark-thirty 6:30 a.m., but on my day off... holy crap! How do windows on a covered porch get so dirty? (That's a rhetorical question.)
I'm thankful for the weather. You can see a bit of bright afternoon sun shining behind me and, just a few days until Thanksgiving, I'm wearing only a sweater and shawl (Stripe Study #2 - an early favorite this season) over my turtleneck. We'll be seeing 50s on the holiday weekend. Nice.
I'm thankful for wool and knitting and talented designers and the fabulosity when it all comes together into something that I love to knit and, even better, to wear. Shawls, cowls, and mitts have been in heavy rotation, so far this year, on both my needles and my body; I pulled down the heavier capelets and wraps a few days ago; sweaters will appear before long.
I am thankful for blogging and all of the friendship and support it's given me, not to mention inspiration. It is amazing to have friends all over the world. It's even more amazing to be able to meet and spend time with them on occasion.
I'm so incredibly thankful for my husband and three beautiful daughters; happy and thankful that we not only get along, for the most part, but also enjoy each other's company; thankful that we had such a fun, wonderful, and memorable vacation this year.
I'm thankful for the rest of my family -- my mom and dad, my sisters and brother, my niece and nephews, all the in-laws -- and for my friends. I am thankful that the love trumps all. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful, talented, creative people who are interested in... life... in learning and doing and making... a life worth living.
Is that 10 things? ; )
