grateful



Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I start work at ten while my son has to be at school by eight thirty and for the first time this year I don't have to drive for more than five minutes to get to work.
This leaves me with plenty of time to enjoy my morning coffee.
I sometimes prepare something for work but most days I save this time for me;
reading, blogging and lately crocheting - I really need to finish this blanket soon; it's getting cold here. Yesterday's gratitude list included central heating!
Right now, while typing this and sipping my coffee, I'm listening to Joni Mitchell's Blue. (thank you Jessica for mentioning her on your blog).
The CD found its way to me through mail and I got it yesterday together with some gorgeous cards I purchased on etsy. I'll try to take pictures when there's some decent light around here.
The roses in my small jar are courtesy of our garden. The rose bushes belong to our landlords, who live in Germany and come to Greece only in the summer- I don't think they would mind my cutting them; and, oh. my! They smell divine!
I need to get ready for work in a while. I'm wearing boots today!
Happy Tuesday!

Oh Yiota, I'm so happy that you love Joni as much as I do. We must be kindred spirits, you and I. Would you believe that I am crocheting a stripey blanket too? It even looks like the exact same pattern. I'm making mine for my little guy. Lots of blues with some pops of red. So far I'm diggin it. Love your bright color choices. Don't you love the repetetiveness of the dc? So relaxing!

Morning rituals are gifts to be savored, aren't they? Mine also involves coffee, very milky coffee w/ a little mexican choclate & cinnamon. Mmmmm, yes. I can't imagine my morning without that. Roses and good music could only make it more enjoyable.

Thank you for the link love my friend. Seriously appreciated!
