Thankful Thursday

I really like this theme from Carrie Jones' blog, and was reminded of it by my wonderful, wise, and observant friend, Bridget.

This has been a strange few weeks of stress and excitement and accomplishment and a surprise requiring a major decision (no, I am not pregnant). But even in times of uncertainty, I'm feeling thankful (especially for the nudge from Bridget). Today, I'm also thankful for:
  • A finished revision! (well, this phase anyway)
  • Carrie's airplane zombie barf bag post.
  • Good books in my TBR pile.
  • That I can tell the difference between a hot monkey and a not-hot monkey.
  • People who care about things beyond themselves.
  • Lime sorbet.
  • The circle of family, friends, and colleagues in my life, who give me joy just to know them.
  • Angelina Ballerina Ice Fairy Princess birthday parties, and for moments that only happen once.


  1. I never thought about hot monkeys, but that link is quite something.

    Love the photo. Enjoy every moment!

  2. Here to say that even this gal who goes for gals could id the Hot Monkey.
    The whole thing made me laugh- thanks.
    And you know who somewhat resembles an Olson twin (without the pathology) in those fabu sunglasses!

  3. it is a piece of grace to have a daughter to share such things with - i still treasure it, and Miss K is 16 (!)

    of course, at 16, i can share the hot monkey with her, too ;-)

  4. what a wonderful post! I love the picture of you two!

  5. That lime sorbet is looking mighty lemony.

    And its taste testers!!??
