Thinking Thankful Thoughts, November 2011

16 Nov

Some Things I Feel Thankful For, in No Particular Order:

Hemmed slacks

Crisp sweet apples, especially the tiny ones

Intelligent writers who hold my attention and make me think

Quiet mornings when I can reflect on all manner of things

Sincere friends, supportive family and other fine folks (especially my husband)

Warm Fall breezes that make my skin tingle

Optimism (and the occasional delusion)

Cold filtered water at my fingertips

Being of sound mind and body

Flannel sheets and king size pillows

Nasal decongestants that actually work

A clean bathroom (especially one I didn’t clean myself)

Merino wool and cashmere sweaters

Living in a free country

A piece of music titled “Sheep May Safely Graze”

Nutrition labels

The french fries at Elephant Bar (forget the nutrition label on that one)

    Put the flannel sheets on last weekend. Comfy! With ruffles on the trim, shabby chic. Good thoughts, good dreams. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Ahh, the joy of a quiet morning . . . there are too few of those in my world. Great list!

    Wonderful list! So many things we just take for granted.

    A great list of things to be thankful for, but I’m especially impressed with your inclusion of delusion. It gives the whole piece a reality and earthiness.

    Very nice poem.

    The sequencing of this list made me laugh aloud, many times, as my mind toiled in vein to find a semblance of organization, and my logic constantly argued back that there was none — yet, somehow, it flowed! haha.

      I’m glad to hear it. I actually rearranged the list a few times, but mainly just to balance the visual shape, as some of the lines were so much longer than others.

    Love the one-liners! I look forward to reading more.
