Gratitude/Happiness List (March 27)

I’ve gotten behind in posting my lists lately, but here are some of the things I’ve been grateful for/made happy by this week. This is a linkup with Laurel Regan’s Alphabet Salad blog.

Receiving printed copies of the The Quotable issue in which my story appears.



The renewed feeling that getting a haircut brings.

Meeting two friends for dinner at Cheesecake Factory.

Meeting another friend for lunch and walking to the restaurant, a little over two miles round trip, on a beautiful day.

Buying three new books.

Finishing another prayer shawl.

A concert by the RI Philharmonic Orchestra featuring one of my favorite works, Tchaikovsky’s Pathetique Symphony.

Our dog getting a clean bill of health from the vet.

That what I thought was a broken tooth was just a broken crown and replaceable.

Watching Providence College in the NCAA tournament playing a great game and not feeling too bad about their losing to North Carolina.

That we missed the big storm that buried Cape Cod and other parts of Massachusetts.
