Itâ€™s Thursday again! Wow, that came quick, didnâ€™t it? Errr, okay itâ€™s only because of the holiday, but it still felt pretty quick to me. 🙂
Iâ€™m thankful for short work weeks. Oh, they are so great, arenâ€™t they? Especially because I get paid for Monday without even having to work Monday, definitely a plus. I practically did nothing on Monday, which was also nice. Once in awhile, it’s nice to just relax and not do much.
Iâ€™m thankful for spaghetti. I love spaghetti, itâ€™s so yummy and yet so easy to make. As of this evening, Iâ€™ll have had it for three nights this week. This is totally acceptable and okay in my book. Can you really have too much Italian food? I think not. I also believe this to be the case about Mexican food. Thatâ€™s also tops in my opinion.
Iâ€™m thankful for Tony Stark. Yes, this is funny, but yet itâ€™s not. Iâ€™m kind of sort of in love with Robert Downey Jr.â€™s Tony Stark. I mean, the hotness factor is out the window. Can you imagine having someone like Tony for a boyfriend? Gwenyth better watch out, Iâ€™m sure that Iâ€™m not the only single lady out looking at her man (her man in the moviesâ€¦but still, she gets to be with him then. Iâ€™m jealous for sure).
Iâ€™m thankful that my birds come back home this weekend. I know, I know, I talk about them all the time in Thankful Thursdays (and other blog posts), but they are like my kids since I have yet to have offspring. They have been spending the week at my parentsâ€™ house since we had to bug bomb the house yesterday. I miss hearing my parakeet Angel singing to me and my lovebird Indy flirting with me (yes, he flirts, trust me).
Iâ€™m thankful for good books. I just read a great one, maybe youâ€™ve heard of it? Itâ€™s entitled, Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller. Itâ€™s an awesome book. Iâ€™ve had at least one friend recommending that I read it for years (or at least 3-4 years, but that counts as just years right?), but I just never got around to it or something. I finally did it though, and am happy to say that I enjoyed it. It really got me thinking about my Christianity and life. I will now recommend that you go out and get yourself a copy to read if you have yet to read it. Iâ€™ll be reading more of Mr. Millerâ€™s work in the near future.
Iâ€™m thankful that I biked 12 miles. Okay, it was just under 12 miles, but thatâ€™s how far I biked last Friday to , during and from the Mayorâ€™s Bike to Work Day. My legs hated me intensely for most of the weekend, but it felt good to get out on my bike for more than a short 3-4 mile ride. I look forward to many more longer rides this summer.
Iâ€™m thankful for race planning. Yup, Iâ€™m already planning my races for later this year and into next year. And, Iâ€™m seriously considering my first-ever full marathon being the Walt Disney World Marathon in January 2013. It excites and scares me all at the same time.
