Such a beautiful day I can sit on the deck and read. Yea!
Birds singing, flowers blooming, bees buzzing and a lovely cup of green tea.
Being able to spend yesterday with friends and family was a real treat.

Laughter....yes so much to be grateful for.

Sorry, Rebecca - Hope I didn't mess anything up posting over your August link!!! My morning schedule has been messed up until I get my new computer this weekend.

Today, my gratitudes include:

-Advance newsletter from my CSA, alerting me to what's coming tomorrow, giving me a chance to plan AND providing recipe ideas for produce in the bag
-Dinner plans with one of my oldest friends that I haven't seen for months
-Very healthy breakfast/lunch to allow for Chinese food for dinner (my good planning)
-Weather forecast predicts mid-90s later this week - wow, a real cold snap (she says quite sarcastically)
-Gifting produce that I'm not fond of to neighbors - a win-win by using the produce and promoting good neighborly relations
-Getting through a project at work that involved entirely new processes and procedures

Have an excellent day!

Stephanie

I am so busy doing nothing... that the idea of doing anything - which as you know, always leads to something - cuts into the nothing and then forces me to have to drop everything.
-- Jerry Seinfeld

Good evening,

Sooooooo wonderful to gather here with you and give thanks for~~

~ GBoomer's profile quote, too good not to share

~ insurance allowing me to have diagnostic bloodwork done today to try getting to the root of my extreme fatigue

~ an absolutely delicious salad for dinner

~ finding an exciting source for live Celtic music locally

~ ordering more books by the incredible scholar-writer Jill Ker Conway, having just finished her fabulous memoir, The Road from Coorain, about which economist John Kenneth Galbraith said (LOVE this quote): "A small masterpiece of scene, memory and very stylish English. I've been several times to Australia; this book was the most rewarding journey of all."

Blessed be,

Today I am grateful for - a great start to the school year - a first day of school morning with no TV, no yelling, no pleading, no fussing, no grumping, good breakfasts and clean clothes, new school shoes, and getting both kids to school on time on the first day!! Grateful for wonderful teachers and daycare providers who REALLY REALLY love and take care of my kids - they are more of a blessing than I can ever tell them. Grateful for my dad's caregiver and that we are financially able to afford her - she is also a blessing beyond measure. Grateful for this reminder to be grateful!

- getting new multifunction printer to do ALL of the following: 1) print wirelessly from our PCs and Mac, 2) scan wirelessly from the same, 3) print over airprint from iPad, and 4) print from HP ePrint. It took a little time and internet research to get it all working.

- all packed and ready to go for Maine vacation, taxi picking us up this morning.

- a good night's sleep.

- nice walk yesterday.

- Korean red bean bingsoo yesterday afternoon.

As I wake up to wispy coral clouds dotting the heavenly blue sky I think on my gratitudes:
-Curious dream w/lesson on how my actions impact others
-Afternoon finishing shields and watching “Weeds” episodes w/R
-Big basket of basil, full of fabulous fragrance, picked, washed, spun and ready for making into pesto
-Empathizing with friend who is dealing with pet death
-Dear girl dogs good sportsmanship, squeezing into back of ‘cedes when I picked up R at mechanics
-Taking a new strategy with intuitive eating

...where attention goes, energy flows...

I am grateful this morning for:

- today is the last day of a grueling Summer program that I taught.
- the support I felt from this thread's practice, and a few similar threads, each morning of this tough month.
- recovery naps that made yesterday do-able.
- quickly catching and rectifying mistake in cat-sitter invoice yesterday.
- the symposium yesterday.

I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.

This morning, I am grateful for:

-a really good rain throughout the night, so needed in this drought, even though the thunder woke me 4-5 times through the night and as a result, I woke up late this morning
-a 75-minute "walk and talk" with a friend last night in the mall (trying to escape heat and humidity)
-my wonderful CSA produce and bread received yesterday, including more amazing tomatoes and a casaba melon
-lower temps today; never thought I would be delighted with low- to mid-90s, but I am
-my PC computer monitor that appears to have finally died last night, which will now force me to make that shopping trip for a new computer
-The upcoming MO tax free weekend; I think I'll hold off until that weekend and save a fair amount in taxes for the new computer and for Office '07

Make it an excellent day!

Stephanie

Really? National Ice Cream Sunday Day, Julie? I'm there!

This morning I am grateful for:

- Seeing some colleagues of whom I am quite fond after more than a month.
- Presentation at Educational Technology Symposium and noticing that I am already doing many of the so-called cutting edge things mentioned by the keynote speaker.
- peace and quiet during field trip to Buddhist Temple.
- dealing well with difficult administrator yesterday.
- yesterday's walk and walking in general: probably the best stress-relief exercise of all.

I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.

Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Good evening,

Happy to be here~~

~ smiling as I read Sherrie's gratitudes (as I often do), recalling sitting in her lovely home with her and her family

~ happy to read the follow-up from Stephanie and know that all is as well as it can be expected to be

~ finished an uber productive almost six hours with a friend in decluttering projects this afternoon

~ prepared a delicious salad for the two of us and then a delicious morsel of dark chocolate for dessert

~ not getting caught up in a friend's "littleness of spirit" and realizing we all have shortcomings and trying to simply accept the friendship for what it is without having expectations

Blessed be,
xox
