Today has been a rough day - not a bad day, just very taxing, which is probably most of my problem. Hence, I have put my butt in the chair, and am typing away with no freaking idea what I'm going to write about.
Ya know what? I saw a suggestion of an A - Z list somewhere recently. Gratitude lists are excellent things. So I'll write an A - Z list of things for which I am grateful :)
Apricots, fresh, dried, canned, they're always delightful. They're especially delicious when you swim to the side of the pool in your childhood backyard, and pick them from the branches growing over the pool.
Bananas, an excellent and tasty source of potassium, and available inexpensively all year.
bellydance Class, which I am so glad I've returned to! Love, love, love it.
My Doggie, Diana, who is a delightful old lady of a dog. She's at least 16 years old, and still totally adorable.
Enthusiasm, which I am finding again as I add things to this list :)
Friends and family

Voices. One of the joys of my job is hearing so many different voices on the phone. This is likely why Walt Whitman's poem Vocalism is one of my favorites.
Writing! and Walkies :)
