Wednesday's Favorite Things

(Yep, I'm a bit bored while I wait for the baby to wake up and the laudnry to finish so we can go to the library.)

** I'm feeling thankful today for all the basic amenities we so often overlook. Warm, running water filling my tub in an instant when I found my very messy baby in need of a good scrubbing. Trash removal companies - a job I would never want but I highly respect the men who do it. That is real work ethic to me. A home, that while it isn't what we envision for the rest of our lives, its lovely and cozy and just right for this season. Telephones. Washing machines. Dishwashers. Microwaves.

** NCLS. I love knowing whether or not the library will have a book before I get there. And I also love reserving books online and having them delivered to our local library.

** Spark People. Free calorie calculators and exercise plans. Love it.

** Do I even need to say it? Sunshine. Glorious sunshine. Open windows. Clean, fresh air. Little buds starting to poke through the ground.

** Truth and the freedom to study it.

Anyone else have some favorites to share?

  1. Oh I too am so thankful that the warm weather is here!!! I was starting to wonder if it would ever come back (a little dramatic, I know, but it's been cold for so long!)

    I'm thankful that while the house is an absolute WRECK (mommy's can't get sick, when they do everything seems to fall apart) my 24 hour flu is now finally over, thank goodness!

  3. My favorite things for today:
    -Thrift stores with half-off days.
    -Free concerts that let you eat during them which helps keep little ones happy.
    -Spring rain showers that smell SO good.
    -My tulips coming up.
    -The washer running with thrift store finds in it.
