Grateful Friday - Oh, The Goodness!


  • the new toy has arrived! isn't it lovely!
  • this delicious salad recipe...because I'm wanting to cut back on the cheese I think next time I'm going to try substituting the cheese with avocado
  • a delicious vegetarian sandwich and a hot bowl of the most scrumptious tomato basil soup at my new favorite deli, Stein's
  • an afternoon excursion with a beloved friend to some of my favorite gift shops
  • desert under a tree full of blossoms
  • finding out a good friend is expecting a baby
  • discovering a new coffee shop
  • avocado and black beans sprinkled with salsa and wrapped in a whole grain tortilla
  • clementines
  • limiting my cheese intake to one meal a day
  • ordering The Wheepies latest cd
  • juicy sweet strawberries
  • granola with soy milk
  • a four day work week
  • blossom hunting
  • a weekend to experiment with the new toy

There are three things that I love about this post.

First, it sounds like you love cheese and it made my cheese loving self chuckle. Good luck on the cut backs!

Second, Avocado's is a good substitute for cheese. I love your list of what you eat.

Third, you are happy in this entry. Just reading it brought joy to my being.

That's lovely. It is all to easy to focus on the things that went belly up and to ignore the good. Your writing reminds us that we all have so much to be thankful for, whatever else shitty stuff has happened as well. Thank you.

Ooh, how exciting!!! But I feel kind of sad for the old camera that had to take a picture of the new camera -- it's like someone getting laid off their job who has to train their replacement. Hopefully the old camera fill find a good new home. too. Can't wait to see your pictures!

Your list of food made me salivate -- those are all the things I love, too. Avocados being a particular favorite.

Your new camera is gorgeous and I'm sure you'll be putting the rest of us to shame, in short order. Your pictures are always stunning, anyway!
