things that made me smile...

yes, i've been neglectful of my blog lately. i have had lots to smile about though.

* i really like the people with whom i work. they're nice, thoughtful, hard working and friendly. i was sad to see some good people leave this week. lunch time will never be the same again.

* people are so generous. i'm constantly amazed by their generosity.
   - at work i'm helping with the cfc. we surpassed our fundraising goal this week, and people will continue to give and give generously.
   - at church i'm heading the hat project, where we've teamed up with children's hospital to provide 500 hats for the oncology unit by the end of march. if you're a knitter, crocheter, or sewer, and are interested in helping please let me know.

* lunch with a lovely lady at one of my favorite places. llr is such good company.

* catching up over brunch with a recently married sister chief and friend. it was so nice to talk shop and talk about life with her. i love her perspective.

* an out of town friend came over sunday evening while i was working on a project. it was so nice to spend time with her and catch up on our lives. i'm so thankful for her friendship.

* trying to christmas serenade a friend with miss llm. i learn so much from her and am so grateful for her friendship.

* listening to christmas music just makes me happy.

* josiah, my housemate's dog, really is a good dog. he makes me laugh and feel loved. i love that he likes to sleep by my bed.

* talking to my mom. she's so fun and always up to something.

* i think we're making headway on the mouse situation... finally.

* i'm making lots of little christmas crafts. i need to start on these earlier.

* thick and comfy socks. freshly laundered bed sheets. my winter duvet on the bed. crocheting. cute little felt ornaments. pulling out christmas decorations. a good manicure. interesting books. walks with the dog. hot chocolate. 7th hill pizza. arugula salads. homemade soups. homemade marshmallows.
