1. My big warm dog sleeping against my back or on my feet at night.
2. The heater in my car that allows me to stop driving with my hands in my sleeves after about 15 minutes.
3. Tomorrow being payday
4. Country drives 3 minutes from home
5. Wildlife, hawks, deer, rabbits, possums, that I see (at least one) of almost daily.

I've been a bit down lately (agh, the holidays'll do it every year) so this is good for me:

I'm grateful for:
the babies in my family
the job that I love, so much so that I'm almost at a loss while on vacation
winter (really) and thus my radiator
being alone sometimes - it's good to know I can do it, even if it feels darned lonely at first

  • a day that magically seemed to have extra hours
  • a meeting where everyone was focused, respectful, and stuff got done -- the second in a row!
  • being able to look up, say, "AOL dropped usenet, did you see?" and have a whole unspoken conversation pass between us
  • the worst of winter is truly over
  • taking a risk and miraculously being "heard"
