Thursday Thanks (11-15)

fiveEach week (I aim for Thursday), I’ll use this space to list five things (items, experiences, people, whatever) for which I’ve been recently grateful. Consider it my “blessings count”. Ann Voskamp’s famous challenge to list 1000 gifts seemed daunting — I’m committing to 500, a two-year venture into which I’ve only begun.

Having missed last week, I am striving for a double dose this week! Keep an eye out for a second post.

1)  Comedy
Two weeks ago, my sweetheart and I enjoyed an evening listening to the stories of Danny Bhoy. This week, the untimely passing of John Pinette reminded me yet again that I do love funny people!

2) Sweeping
Of all household chores, sweeping might be one of my favourites. The labor is light enough to be done quickly, but the satisfaction of seeing results is immediate. My broom and I made a dramatic impact on my garage this afternoon!

3) Slurpees
With Spring apparently on its way (for real), I indulged in my first slurpee of the year this week. The clerk at the corner store near my office definitely sees me more in the summertime!

4) Play-Doh
Our church is incorporating Play-Doh as a key ingredient in our upcoming Sunday assembly. Who can resist that stuff?

5) Mio
A small bottle of this juice mix is tucked in my desk drawer. And thanks to it, my water consumption has been way up in the last two weeks! Mio, I salute you.
