So... on another blog I read the author was talking about things we are grateful for... blessings... praises... and I really have so much to be grateful for. Most of it is very very predictable... :) Joe... duh... :) My friend Melissa (whom I hadn't seen for two years) came over the other night for dinner and it was just so great to get to visit with her. She took this picture and although I think I look TIRED... it's a picture I am happy with. :)
I think a very precious thing is the love of a dog by it's boy! Murphey is just a champ! She puts up with EVERYTHING from Joe. He pulls on her ears. Sticks his fingers in her mouth. Grabs her tail and rides her like a horsey! He also loves on her ad nauseum and wakes up signing DOG.
In return... Joe feeds her. Murph gets a little taste of everything Joe eats. Simple arrangement but it works for them. :) I am quite sure that Joe is one of Murphey's all time favorite people!
Melissa took to Joe right away and he (after a little bit of prodding) started flirting with her. They played peek aboo... they tickled and a bit of chase thrown in for good measure. I do admit though that she really wanted to take my dog home. Not a chance BUDDY! :)
And of course we had to show off WITH our vacuum and our monkey. Double fisting it. :)
I am also grateful for my husband. He is good to me, good to us. He gets up every morning and opens the office so that I can sleep in. Granted, I am up with Joe most nights at some point or another... but this arrangement works for us. :)
the food network. I love it. It is a guilty pleasure and I watch it all weekend long and when Joey wakes up in the middle of the night, I watch it then too. I love new recipes... I love new ideas and I just plain love the Food Network. :)
A good book. I never seem to have enough time to read anymore... but I do love me a good book. :) Memories. I am so grateful for the wonderful memories I have made. Not many people can say that they have experienced all that I have and the memories I have locked into my little brain and my heart... man... the friends I have made, the people I have met. In a word... Amazing.
