When the temperature drops to -20 degrees Celsius (that is just ridiculously cold), I find myself feeling grateful for all kinds of things.
::the joy of indoor cats
::the joy of outdoor cats
::after a day apart, siblings cuddling under a mama-made quilt
::the promise of a bag of yarn, and a new project on the needles
::endless cups of tea, and my shiny, whistly kettle
::the games of Hollywood Rummy with my husband that help pass the evenings
::the little love tokens my husband leaves: kindling, bundled newspaper, and wood
::and the fire I can create so quickly and effortlessly when I get home from work
::the signs of indoor play when the risk of frostbite is too great
::Jude's first taste of ice cream in years (this one is made from coconut milk!)
::and the promise of another sunny day in the snow with my chicklets.
My time on the computer is severely curtailed by the ever-presence of my children; the toddler who slams the laptop shut as I work, the preschooler who clambers up and kicks the internet stick out of the computer, the son who needs a drink, the husband who masks his irritation that I'm trying to blog now?
I'm trying to figure out how to add a Magical Widgety thingy. It's not going well. I just don't have time to fiddle around with the fancy stuff, as much as I'd like to and admire everyone else's ability to do so.
So, please share a link in your comment, or just a few words about what you're feeling grateful about today! GratiTuesday! Love it!
