In my blog readings this morning, I came across a post from Canary Knits which consisted of a list of reasons to be cheerful. I think everybody needs to be reminded that they have such a list, and I thought I would go ahead and make mine.
My Causes for Cheer
A husband of over 40 years who is also my best friend.
Two delightful grandchildren living three blocks away.
A loving and extremely talented daughter with an unending supply of hand-dyed yarn, also only three blocks away.
A son-in-law who is also a good friend.
Two brothers, two nieces, two nephews and a bunch of cousins – all of whom I actively enjoy being with.
Getting to live in a century that suits my style awfully well – i.e. I really love technology in general and personal computers in particular.
My Kindle, allowing me to carry a lot of books with me at all times.
My husband’s growing pleasure in cooking and an increased tendency to experiment.
Pandora. I usually can’t be bothered to dig up music that I enjoy, but Pandora is so easy.
Chocolate. (And my husband’s experiments with new kinds!)
Being less than two years from retirement.
An excellent financial adviser.
There are bound to be lots more things that should be on this list but haven’t come to mind. On the whole, I am pretty cheerful, but maybe I should be even more so. I’m an awfully lucky woman!
As pictures for the day, I offer cast photos from the just-completed production of Charlotte’s Web.
