Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. I write sometimes. Not enough though. I have another blog. Did you know that? Languishing in cyberspace 2 years ago this month, a couple of the vids have disappeared. Nada. Nunca. Kinda like me. (Inattention is not a good thing.) I had big plans for tube tops, tattoos and TimeLines. But I’m thinking, in a rather self-indulgent way, that blog 2 will have to wait a tad longer. I’m barely keeping up with this one, the Rag story (been months! since I’ve written a chapter there) and the occaisional poems/lyrics.
I’m coming off an anniversary (Thursday) and as expected, been quite reflective these last 48 hrs… what did I expect…what do I expect…what have I accomplished….what is it I want/need…how do I get it…is there really time or has the card been punched too many times.. Embedded in these thoughts always is a thread of thanks. I cannot weave a single day without the use of it.
Hm. Now that turned out to be a darned good segue into a Ten Things of Thankful list wouldn’t you say? So what do you say? I say let’s start the listation! (as the Creator of the Wakefield Doctrine might call it)
First and foremost! Thanks to Everyone who stopped by my last post and shared. Please forgive me for not getting over to your house (s) yet. I’ve had the best of intentions but it’s been one of those weeks. My Mom always told me: “the road to hell is paved with good intentions“. (now why on earth would my Mom keep telling me that? lol)
Second to none. Being confused! Let me explain – Monday last was my nephew’s 11th birthday. Thinking he was being taken out for a birthday dinner, I drove by the house after work to drop off his card. Lo and behold, dinner out wasn’t until the next night. So I got to go in, set a spell, watch him blow out his candles and enjoyed a most excellent piece of chocolate cake!
Third time’s a charm. Have I mentioned I have a Kindle? 🙂
Four corners of the Earth. Is how far I feel I’ve commuted this week. It’s been rough. I’ve dubbed this “accident week” on the Beltway. And not just one accident. Doubleheaders! Thankfully, none fatal that I’m aware of but every day this week there have been backups. My thankful? That I wasn’t part of any of these accidents!
Hang Five. I’m thankful for the ability to ratchet up the energy (most times, not always) more times than not. Hm. Ya know….today isn’t one of those times LOL oops!
Sixes and Sevens. Never heard of this phrase. Kinda cool. I will re-state for the record my thanks for being able to access such an enormous reservoir, reserve, repository of information at the mere click of a mouse!
Crazy Eights Since it’s almost Hallowen, I linked to the trailer for a scary movie. No, it’s not a thankful 🙂 as I’ve not seen it, but it is a reminder of the time of year it is. My most favorite season. Fall. It’s been pretty awesome so far. I actually had to use the AC in my car 2 days last week! Warm weather at the peak of fall colors is….incredible. Taking my walk break at work under canopies of golden delicious apple leaves mixing with red delicious and orange crush – beautiful. I’m thankful to have such a pretty place to walk.
Nine. I smile at this. It reminds me of my 2 young nephews that I will be seeing later on today. 9 is a movie I bought for them a while back. The younger one really like it. That made me happy. I’m most thankful to be able to enjoy this part of their childhood. There will come a day when hanging with adults won’t be cool.
10-4. I woke up again today. Definitely a good start.
**Thanks to the Eagles for the title to this Post. Be careful with the legal tender my friends.
