A CIRCLE OF FRIENDS
I LOVE this time of year! Even though Houston is CRAZY as far as weather goes (we are at 83 right now and hideously humid) and it feels Autumny only about 2 days out of each week, I feel Autumny! (Uh-uh-uh! I heard that! It is NOT because I look like a round turkey!) Actually, it's because I am really allowing myself to FEEL the gratitude for so many things!
For instance, today I went to my favorite grocery store. I could set up a cot and LIVE in there, folks. Truly. Fruits and veggies so fresh and yummy it's heavenly, a wonderful sushi cart run by a family from Japan who make the BEST sushi fresh to order daily, a bakery I have NO business even WALKING past much less sampling, and just about ANYTHING I could imagine needing or wanting. I know pretty much everyone who works there - and it's a HUGE store - and I get HUGS from almost all of them. I LOOOOOVE hugs! Happy Kai!
After that, I learned this nasty old heat and humidity will be RAIN tomorrow (we SERIOUSLY need it) then COLD Wednesday through Saturday! YAY!
To top it off, I have some good programs recorded to watch later, my craft table is fun-in-progress, and the book I'm currently reading ROCKS! GOOD STUFF!
Most of all, though, I'm feeling Autumny and grateful because I genuinely love so many of my blogger friends! Each day when I get the chance to check your blogs, it feels as though I've been to your house for a short while to have coffee and yak a bit. Thank you for letting me visit you. You ALL amaze, impress, and touch me ALL the time!
I wish I could show you what I'm working on right now (I CAN'T; it's a birthday gift for one of you) because I'm LIKING it a LOT! I'll show you once I've mailed it and KNOW the birthday girl has received it.
For now, that's about it. BIG HUGS TO EVERYONE FROM THIS SENTIMENTAL, MUSHY, SILLY, OLD TURKEY! And tell me - what is making YOU happy today?
