another Gratitude Friday, for which I am grateful to Diana in Piemonte. http://creativestructures.blogspot.com/
Today I am grateful that:
There are still old stone walls running all through the New England landscape. Where there once were farms, the woodlands have re-emerged. And towns are preserving their open and wild spaces instead of letting them fall to the bulldozer.
The people in my little corner of the universe are all holding their own.
It's Friday! OK, a rainy and cold Friday, and I need to spend all weekend writing developmental assessments, but hey.
My nose was bruised, not broken.(an occupational hazard of working with young children--when they jump up suddenly)
My Benny Goodman-wannabee is practicing music I like.
I can zip a pair of size 10 jeans. Breathing is overrated, right? I'll be wearing them in another two-three weeks, I think.
The oven isn't working, but at least I have the stovetop, some spicy chicken sausage, red peppers, mushrooms and onions, and whole-wheat spaghetti for dinner. And salad, leftover roasted veggies, and Costco raspberries.
