Grace in Small Things (part 4 of the massive backlog)


  1. My knee doesn’t hurt today!  It’s the strangest thing, but I’m not complaining!
  2. We met one of our neighbors.  Lovely woman.
  3. Running was hard, but so good because of it.
  4. Reading in bed and snuggles.
  5. Tomorrow is a half-day.


  1. I finally left home just early enough that I could hit the marsh just before sunrise.  I got some fantastic photos of the grass and the sky.  Not foggy, unfortunately, and I had to leave before the light got really good, but I’ll just have to do it again.
  2. I actually got to leave work on time.  Instead of working to make up for hours, I got to leave at the time I’m supposed to, opening up my whole afternoon.
  3. I got to spend the afternoon with Justin.  We pulled vines from the trees in the backyard, we took those vines to the dump, went out to lunch, hit a few other errands, and, after a short time at home, went shopping at f.y.e. and out to Appleby’s for dessert (mudslide for me, cookie sundae for him).  It was fantastic!
  4. I weighed-in at 208, down 1.5 pounds.
  5. I had fun conversations with my sister-in-law and my little brother, both on the same day.


  1. Orange rolls, Atlantis, and snuggles in bed is the perfect way to start the morning.
  2. f.y.e  still had the Punch Brothers CD that we accidentally walked out without yesterday.  So I was able to go back and pick it up.
  3. I had fun wandering around in Michael’s picking up stuff for a project for Justin’s family.  I love wandering around in that store and thinking of the possibilities.
  4. It was fantastically beautiful this afternoon.  And crazy warm.
  5. We finished day 9 of the Couch to 5K program.  It’s hard and we’re tired and sore, but it feels so good.


  1. Christmas carols at church.
  2. Finishing the yard work I’ve been wanting to do for months.
  3. Organizing projects that look so fantastic once they’re finished.  And the feeling I get while working on them.
  4. My fantastically loving husband who takes my stress-outs and crying out of nowhere with absolute grace and patience.  Gives me hugs and snuggles and listens and comforts for as long as I need and then some.
  5. Fun playing games with friends online.


  1. Quiet days at work when people are in a good mood and excited about the holiday.
  2. Finishing my video game over lunch
  3. Knowing that I only have a few more hours to work, followed by vacation, for which I’m getting paid!

  1. Let’s see if this works. It is good to have your site up and running again. It will be even better if I can leave comments here! Let me know if it works.
