Lots of my friends are doing “Thankfulness Month” either on their blogs or in their status updates on Facebook. I think this is a great idea.
I won’t be posting daily, because, I can’t be bothered to be that thankful. Just kidding! I can’t be bothered to write that often. And, I might write about other stuff in between. But I will be focusing on an attitude and posture of thankfulness this month (especially since I seem to have skipped the last couple of years with my skipping the holiday in general).
I’m going to try to get creative here. I’m probably going to write about the really obvious things at some point, but I also want to share some of the little things…
Today, I’m especially thankful for my programmable thermostat. I just learned how to use it. I finally have figured out how to have my house be slightly warmer than the 65 degrees that it was perpetually for the last couple of weeks.
I have a day of respite. I have been burning the candle at both ends lately, and I finally had a day where I could just sleep in. I worked out and showered, then put my jammie-ish clothes back on and got back into bed to write and catch up on email. That’s how Arthur and I have spent our day: snuggling in bed. It’s been delightful. Bliss-full. And I haven’t had to go downstairs once to try to figure out how to change the stupid thermostat. It’s pre-set (How cool is it that it has 4 different times of day that I can pre-set it to change the temp?). Yeah, Baby.
