Thankful Thursday

I interrupt my regularly scheduled catch up phase to bring you this week's Thankful Thursday list.  It's been a few weeks since I've done it and I wanted to try to get back on track.  I have a renewed appreciation for each day and try to show that in my actions.  We're not promised tomorrow, so live for today!

1)  Sleeping in.  It doesn't happen often in our house but on the rare occassions when I get to sleep past 7, I feel totally refreshed and super energized.  I enjoy the day so much more (as do those around me) when I get a full night's rest.  More to come in a later post about my attempt to make this a permanent treat!

2)  Cake donuts.  I have a killer sweet tooth and there are few sweets I'll pass up but some are closer to my heart than others.  I love cake donuts straight from the bakery.  I'm not a fan of the Hostess or other store-bought varieties, I prefer the straight-from-the-fryer ones!  My ultimate favorite are caramel cake but a good old plain cake donut is pretty hard to beat.  I just happen to have one staring at me on my desk right now.  I'm trying to resist the urge to devour it.

3)  Memoirs.  Not so much the written ones but more of the intangible ones that are in our hearts and minds.  If you're lucky enough to have an object to go with these memories, even better.  One of the things I've requested of Granny's was her UK sweatshirt.  I would hate to guess how many days that thing was worn.  She was a die-hard UK fan and I think it only appropriate that another die-hard get to carry on the tradition! 

What are you thankful for?  Feel free to link up to Black Tag Diaries to share.
