love thursday

I love:

  • Not having to cook for consecutive days in a row,
  • How fast my 50mm f/1.4 lens came back to me,
  • Getting our cards to family and friends early, even though I did cut my list down this year,
  • Eating a grown up lunch at one of Michael’s favorite Chinese restaurants, without kids,
  • Having Romeo and Juliet on my laptop to watch whenever the hell I feel like it,
  • Filling up my gas tank for $1.30 a gallon; $1.40 is nice, too,
  • New clothes for the kids,
  • Home made chicken noodle soup,
  • Michael’s salsa, my mom’s guacamole, and my chicken enchiladas,
  • Christmas shopping for the kids with Michael,
  • The fact that Sadie has bounced back for the time being,
  • Sitting around the kitchen table,  laughing at stories my father tells,
  • The smell of the house after cookies have been baked,
  • Our new local grocery store,
  • Taking  said cookies over to Miss Beverly and talking to her for a few minutes,
  • Davey’s new words and mannerisms,
  • How awesome the kids’ dentist is and how handsome he is,
  • The fact that not one of them has a cavity,
  • More Christmas shopping—for the kids–with Michael,
  • Staying within budget while getting some useful, interesting, and practical gifts,
  • Not buying just to buy,
  • Looking forward to Christmas with my family of six, and
  • Not stressing about the holiday and just taking it for all that it is and should be.

    Great post! thanks for the comments over at my place. You know…I’ve been feeling really invisable lately. Fewer comments on my blog, ignored on facebook, and the like. It really lifted my spirits to be a finalist in that contest. I really needed it. I hate it when I feel insecure. sigh.
    For the record, your photos are always some of my all time favs. Your day will come….I know it. I just totally lucked out. I’m certain of it.

    Speaking of loving things, I love your photography and I’ve tagged you for it over at my blog. I’ve been subscribing to your blog for a few months now, and I haven’t commented before now, but you really do take amazing pictures.
