Little Things

Taking a hint from my girl Kate and her “Daily Grace” posts and forcing myself to write out the little things I’m thankful for today. ¬† Because I’m feeling tired and tense and like it should have been Friday about three days ago ūüôā


Physical health // Specifically, two strong legs that helped me to my goal of beating each individual mile time from my run on Tuesday.  So I may feel tired, but I also feel mighty proud.

Fun post-work plans¬†// The Rockies are back in town! ¬†We haven’t treated ourselves to dinner out in six whole days (the horror)! ¬†It’s summer and “school nights” don’t exist (whether you stopped having school nights 5 years ago or not)! ¬†Time for dinner and a game with Joey.

A good book // A little over halfway done with¬†Homegoing¬†and while I don’t¬†love the actual writing, I am so lost in these characters and their stories and the way Yaa Gyasi has formatted her novel. ¬†It is beautiful.

Also, though it is sometimes hard for me to put work aside for just half an hour, once I’m outside in the shade with a good book in hand, I am so so glad I did that for myself.
