G r a t i t u d e * S u n d a y


{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.} 
If you would like to join us, share your gratitudes by leaving your link (or simply sharing your list, whether one or many) in the comments below for all of us to enjoy. Our gratefulness feeds one another. 
 Started and steadfastly continued weekly by Taryn @ Wooly Moss Roots!
This week, the last of January, I am grateful for:
~ The urge to get out of bed and do a grateful post before nodding off to sleep.  Lying there in bed, I was thinking of all the good things in my life, and they just kept adding up!! Grateful.
~ The fact that its not even late yet...
~ my new Human calender! so neat --->
~ Our winter that has been so warm.  It has been a little too warm for my mind to be at ease some days, but as I have no power over the weather, I am just glad to be able to go out and enjoy it!
~ SNOW!  We finally have some!  Since the Kick sled is our favorite pastime (and mode of transportation)  in the winter, ice and snow are welcomed!  
~ the feeling of that crisp winter air in the lungs as the sun shines down on you.

~ Atlin has started singing!  Little songs about juice and coloring, baths and her little guys...  Its so so dang cute.

~ Not so much that she takes all the contents out of my purse whenever she can, but that she actually puts them all back when she's done!!


~ The interest and want we have to cook good meals.  The limitless recipes and inspiration in blogland to help us get good food in our bellies.  As well as a few really good cookbooks.

~ We now have a CSA box that comes to the neighboring town filled with excellent organic fruit and veggies!  We have all been enjoying them so much.

~ AND we have convinced the local grocery store to order bins of organic produce for the ones that want it!  It is one step closer to having it on the shelf.

~ I have landed the perfect job - I am the new town librarian!!  It was exactly what I needed to provide a bit of balance in my life.  Its brilliant to be stuck amongst a zillion books. And with the job came the interest in reading again.  I have been such a book worm lately, I haven't done much else. and that is okay with me for now!   :0)

~ Out of town visitors coming to bring fresh energy to this little town.... and giving me a reason to make blueberry cheesecake!

~ My baby girl will be 2 next weekend and her grandpa, aunties and more fam will be here!

~ I am grateful for my niece who is living with us.  She has provided so much light into this house. Reminded me to keep having fun and not hibernate so much... and what I used to be like when I was her age  :0)

~ and finally. The feel of the snow and earth beneath my mukluks.  Truely getting grounded.

That's so exciting that your little girl is turning 2! She is a beauty.

Gratitude Lists are so very enjoyable to read, they warm the heart, don't they?

Taryn - These lists really do help me focus on what is good! That perspective can get so lost in the mumbo jumbo sometimes. Then you think of it and wow! there's so much good!

Tara- I just read the Virgin Cure!! isnt it great! and Steve picked up the half-blood blues last week at a used bookstore! so I'm gonna read it.
