I'm (as usual) Late For The Party

Schmutzie has issued a challenge - one year of posts called "Grace In Small Things". Every day for 365 days, I will post a list of five things that have graced my life, either on that day or at any time in my life. Feel free to join me. Or mock me. Or, you know, do whatever's in your heart. You can start on whatever day you want, so if you come across this six months from now, don't let that hold you back.

And as I am not only such a slacker lately but a slacker who is feeling sucked down and done in and held under by this economic palava, I have decided to participate... because it's just not that damn bad.

I will post daily (or every other daily. Or once a week daily?) and hopefully through the process relearn how to use my keyboard for good and not just for the highly addictive "Text Twirl".

So, without further ado or adon't (thank you! I'll be here all week!) the first of 345 Days of Grace in Small Things...

1. coffee with cream and Splenda

2. Eva in bunny pink flannel jammies

3. the end of the freaky January heat wave of doom

4. A recorded episode of The Real Housewives of O.C., just awaiting play

5. Bollywood



for you, Jen
EvaJun in bunny pink flannel jammies... online, playing Bunnytown.

Bollywood is awesome, have you seen Slumdog Millionaire yet?

I don't see the appeal of Bollywood. Perhaps you should revisit that dancing you were doing last week and post it online.

Also, how about a photo of #2?

Van - I haven't but I plan on watching it today on some horrible (and illegal I am guessing?) Vietnamese download.

Jen - Rent, "Bride and Prejudice"... it's a Bollywood flavored adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice" and it's great. The girls will LOVE it!

This is a great idea, but I'm not sure I have it in me to be this sunny dispositioned. (Is that a word? It should be!)

Good on you, though! And I bet Eva looks adorable in pink fuzzy PJs.

Ok...I have the same episode Tivoed so dont't tell me what it is. But I like this idea...I'll have to try it becaue lately I have been so angry!

Jen on the Edge said...

OMG, she is so CUTE!

Michelle said...

I should totally do this. I used to do it. But I should really do it right now. I may play along in the privacy of my own home though, K?

coffee: yessssssss!
end of the summer we're experiencing this winter: uh, maybe? i love going to the beach without the crowds, and it's all the better when it feels like summer but isn't. and yet, i am so looking forward to lighting the fireplace tonight.

Jill - I have the same the problem... daily gratefulness is so much harder than daily snarkiness. Which is why I am probably posting, not so much daily...

Ginny - what's up buttercup?!

Jen - just for you!

Michelle - I still say you should just take your blog private...

Donna - I know, I sort of enjoyed the heat, but then was thrown by the fact that it was dark at 5 o'clock!

5 Things for Today

1. I don't have a real job.
2. My husband thinks I'm beautiful.
3. My kids are happy and healthy.
4. Candles
5. Overcast skies & puzzles

I'll live vicariously through your positiveness. Cuz I kind of enjoy being a crab right now. So there.

God, I love that girl! Such a life!

What a beautiful idea!

I want some jammies like Eva's! They're adorable. And for the record, I'd also like to lie in bed and play on my laptop too, that sounds divine.

I don't know if I could get in to Bollywood ... I guess I shouldn't knock it until I try it.

Mamma said...

I will join you. I've already signed up, I just...it's just...

I'm such a procrastinator (and addicted to Twitter dammit)

Kayce said...
