Thinking Happy Thoughts

On a scale of 1-10, today was a 4ish.  Not horrible and terrible, but not great.  Instead of focusing on the reasons why I feel so blah, I would like to focus on a few things that are making me happy lately...

My gnarly looking Christmas Cactus is blooming again.  I was almost ready to throw her out, she looked so dead and terrible before.  Lo and behold...  Christmas came around and she blossomed.  This makes me happy for SO many deep and metaphorical reasons...  :)  

My Christmas tree is still up and glowing brightly.  It will be up until President's Day, thankyouverymuch.  That is the deadline Mark gave to me.  He's a semi-reasonable man.

Coffee.  Decaf, that is.  I'm pregnant, folks.  Watch out.  I LOVE, love coffee, but didn't drink it for at least four months.  I was so sick with morning (all day) sickness and had such terrible heartburn, anything remotely acidic did terrible things to my stomach.  I am happy to report that I am now back in the coffee business.  And weirdly, I am liking cream these days.  So much for me being bad a$$ in liking it dark and strong.  This little guy in my belly is making a softie out of me!

Winter.  I love winter.  It is my favorite season.  Snow and all things warm and cozy inside.  What I wouldn't give for a crackly fireplace right now!  I hope the Lord blesses me with one someday. 

My Mark.  He is so great.  My favorite things about him recently include him working so, so hard on our house, preaching killer sermons about the deep things of God, everything He has taught me about discipleship, and his crazy amounts of patience in dealing with a higher-maintenance prego wife.  He is also hot, which is a bonus.

Making progress on this little bugger.  ...our house.  It used to be white, white, white.  And, I am slowly but surely making some delightful progress.  I NEED to thrift to really get the job done with finality.  I am praying in advance for treasures that are one dollar a piece.  Stay tuned for some fun nursery updates!

There.  I feel happier.  Bedtime, here I come!
