Don't make a dash for Webster's - I made up the title header - meaning mini things I am grateful for today:

  1. I love that even though I got up at 3 am (couldn't sleep) I was able to see the family of deer walking down our otherwise busy street, right in front of our house!
  2. I love that my coffee maker is programmable so dh can wake at 3am to freshly brewed java.
  3. I love that said coffee maker also tells me how many minutes/hours old my pot of coffee is.
  4. I love coffee; but you (ahem) probably already had that one figured after reading #2 and #3.
  5. I love routines and yet, I'm thoroughly enjoying NOT having a set schedule due to a surprise FIVE day weekend.
  6. I love the smell of freshly laundered whites thanks to a marriage of Clorox Ultimate Care Bleach and Mrs. Stewart's Bluing (hmmm bluing doesn't make it smell better but I like my whites WHITE).
  7. I love that my adventuresome kids think camping out means sleeping on the Aerobed in the living room (where they are currently slumbering as I type).
  8. I love pajamas - I have stacks of them - especially the Simply Vera Wang, my current faves I'm donning now.
  9. I hate tolerate my reading glasses (now a necessity) because I love the trendy Foster Grant designs.
  10. I love my friends, especially the ones who will leave comments here b/c for some odd reason, my mundane life reads more interesting than it actually is.


  1. Great list indeed. Love the word, too. Hope you're staying warm!

  2. Great list. Enjoyed each one.

  3. awesome list...and i LOVE that you love pls tell me where i can find this bluing!!
    btw, cute new background :)

  4. I buy the bluing at Walmart in the laundry detergent aisle.
