Month of Gratitude, week four

So, this is it – the last day of November, and the last day of the Month of Gratitude project.  Did you enjoy yourselves?  I hope so.  My own month was inconvenient health-wise, and the tendency to get fed up with neck aches, fevers, sniffles, and antibiotics was present throughout much of it.  But times like those make it all the more important, I think, to seek out the good and be grateful for it.  I’m 100% healthy now, and Aidan’s course of antibiotics (and his constant coughing) are history as well, so we can go into December on a much less bothersome note.  And that is something to be grateful for!

The past week or so, my gratitude has turned to:

  • luck at the thrift shop
  • music, and the squeezebox that sends it through my stereo system
  • good food and good company
  • shopping after the crowds have gone home
  • charm packs
  • a new cousin for my boys
  • kitchen gadgets, in particular my bread machine
  • the community I’ve found through my blog

And in case it wasn’t obvious, by that last one I mean YOU 🙂

Tomorrow Picture the Holidays starts.  In hindsight I’m almost wishing I had taken November off – I’m feeling a little photographically burned-out.  With luck, that feeling will go away once I get into the thoughtful prompts and the flurry of fun activity December brings.  I hear Tacky Santa, clamoring to be released from his attic prison…

  1. I’m thankful that all my Christmas shopping is done. I have a few homemade things to put together yet, but the shopping is done. Let the holidays roll on over me, I’m all set!

    PS Neil rocks! Customer-service happy dancing all the way!!!

    1. I’ll pass that along to him 🙂

      I can’t believe your shopping is done! I have barely even given mine any thought yet! I am impressed.

  2. I haven’t even started my shopping, but inspiration such as yours is sure to get me in the mood. Thanks for sharing!
