is pondering and surfing tonight

Warning… this might be a disjointed crazy post full of ramblings…  sorry.  Sometimes I just have to do this…

I am sitting on the couch right now, surfing the web and pondering the crafty world. 

I have some great friends and I am sitting here reflecting on that as well.

It reminds me of how lucky I am – I have a job doing what I love in an industry I adore.  Not many people can say that and I am again reminded of that.  I do not take it for granted.  I am so thankful for it.

I feel the need to do a grateful list, which is something I haven’t done in a while, and that I enjoy doing.  So, here is a start of one at least…

  1. My family.
  2. Amazing inspiration from fellow crafty types all over the web. 
  3. A fire in the fireplace and snow on the ground.
  4. Finally feeling at home in our house and in WI.
  5. Breakfast for dinner.  Who doesn’t want bacon at 6:00pm?!?!?!
  6. Godiva.  Need I say more?
  7. Family game night.
  8. Boxes of delectable crafty goodness that come to my doorstep…
  9. Time to breathe this week.
  10. Facial masks.
  11. My first haircut since September.  Seriously.  Mall of America at Scrapfest to be exact.  No joke. 
  12. My uber comfy delta phi scrappa sweatpants. 
  13. A cozy comforter.
  14. Time to craft and play and create and make stuff.
  15. Seeing friends and reconnecting at CHA.
  16. The ability to multitask almost non-stop all day long.
  17. The ability to stop multi-tasking and enjoy a fire in the fireplace.
  18. Catching up on the magazines that have piled up – which includes tearing out stuff and making an inspiration pile entitled “I Can Make That!” which applies to crafty creations and recipes alike.
  19. An absolutely AWESOME playlist.
  20. All the small things like clean clothes, a glass of water, a roof, etc… that we often take for granted each and every day.

Now… I am done rambling.  I am grateful. 

Good night.
