Is it wrong to be thankful for the same 10 things week after week?
Not morally wrong as murder or lusting after someone’s double mocha champagne truffle.
More lazily wrong. Like fallen-into-a-rut wrong.
Not opening my eyes and emotions to the spectrum of wonder all aroundest me.
Ten things of thankful for the week that was . . . (not putting coffee, health, my running friends.)
10. The SUN.
After last week’s ice and snow, it’s been warm in Central Georgia. As a girl growing up in Central Florida, I never could appreciate that tingly, world-is-coming-alive again feeling. The joy of seeing those first few daffodils.
9. My white legs.
SCREAM. It was warm this morning on our run through town. At least to my menopausal self. I braved a skirt. Boy are my legs white. But I’m most thankful they are attached to my torso and still move fairly well.
I haven’t shot a basketball in months but I have enjoyed watching my two favorite college teams do well. The University of Florida and SMU are having great seasons. Though why everyone enjoys hopping on a winning team’s bandwagon is worthy of a more thought-filled blog post.
Which the Gators don’t seem to be getting enough of as I watch them playing Ole Miss as a compile this post.
6. Okay. Here is where I want to put birds or coffee or sleep.
Why is it so hard to think of 10 things?
5. My bike.
Had an awesome 20-something mile ride on Thursday. It had been along time. I don’t like to ride if the temps aren’t hovering near 70. Much rejoicing that I’ll be able to get out on my bike regularly.
4. The LEGO Movie.
We went and saw it one night this week. Ate lots of buttered popcorn and drank copious amounts of Diet Coke. Awesome fun, creative flick. And the little boy at the end was my Joe. Okay, he wasn’t really but he sure did make me think of my Joe. And my daughter is the human embodiment of Wyldstyle. Purple hair and all. Just saying.
3. Frozen pizza.
Or should I say that my family is finally starting to be okay with me whipping out one for dinner when meal time creeps up on me and I am UNPREPARED. Not that that happens around here. Much.
I truly love broccoli. It’s the only green vegetable that I could eat EVERYday. It was very sad for me that the plants I put in my garden this fall were duds. But I learned that I planted them too late. Need to have them in the ground by early September.
1. Birds, Coffee, Rebounds, Black running skirts and white legs.
Looks like the Gators are poised for Number 1. Yeehaw.
