9 Days of Thanks - A Catch Up Post

I have been so out of it last week. Which of course ended with me being sick in time for all the Super Powers collection to arrive. I missed activities that I had planned and everything. But now I'm back, so let's start by catching things up today!

Day 12. I am thankful for my health. Because in spite of getting sick, overall I am healthy and that's a good thing!

Day 13. I am thankful for the sunsets here. They are amazing and pink and orange all at once. And one day I am going to turn that amazing sunset into a light orange polish full of pink shimmer! Can't wait!!

Day 14. I am thankful for good food. Well maybe not always, because the weight seems to be sticking around just a bit longer now a days. But having just had an amazing meal at a friends house, right now my full belly is totally thankful!

Day 15. I am thankful for a clean house. That seems few and far between lately. I work all day and then come home and have to work on Cult Nails, so I don't get to keep the house as clean as it used to be. I would be more thankful for a maid service, but something in me just can't bring myself to do it. Although at this point, I really should get someone to come help out with this mess! So when the house is clean - I am totally thankful!

Day 16. I am thankful for bubble baths. You have no idea how much I love a nice long hot bath with a good book and a glass of wine. I used to take a hot bath a few times a week to end the night, but lately I'm lucky to get one a week. How I cherish that alone time!

Day 17. Piggy backing on day 16, I am totally thankful for all the authors out there who write amazing books. I love to read! I used to read about 2 books a month, right now I have been reading the same book for over 2 months! :( But I hope I can enjoy a good book more often soon. If you know of any I should read, let me know!

Day 18. I'm thankful for my neighbor. She knows who she is. I wouldn't be able to a lot of this without her. We have Thursday night wine nights where we decompress from our week. When I am so busy I can't think, I can call her and ask her what's for dinner and she cooks for my entire family! Heck, I don't even need to ask sometimes. Sometimes she calls me when I get out of work to let me know she is cooking dinner! She is amazing! We are thinking of buying some pre-packaged meals that we can just heat up throughout the week from a local chef service, but my neighbor thinks we should hire her to do it instead. I think we might need to make that happen, she's an amazing cook! And yes I do return the favor and cook for her too! I'm just am not as good at it as she is.
Breakfast I actually made for my family and neighbor! We lovingly refer to this as Fat Sunday Breakfast. Yum!
Day 19. I'm thankful for humor. Because when it all just gets to be too much a good laugh is always good! Plus I do enough stupid stuff to keep people laughing for a long time! LOL

Day 20. I'm thankful for the nice weather. It is still in the 70's here during the day and high 50's to low 60's at night. Just perfect for the Fall for me! I am not a fan of the cold weather, so I love it.

Day 21. And lastly to full catch up on my 30 days of giving thanks, I am thankful for a good cup of coffee. Because I have been needing a lot of it lately. Juan recently got me a Keurig and man that thing is awesome for a quick coffee on the go! Love all the different flavors coffee I can make as the mood strikes!
