“Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts.” — Henri Frederic Amiel.
Things I Love Thursday is an idea created by the inimitable Gala Darling. In 2007 she began creating a list every Thursday, sharing links, people and experiences that she had fallen in love with that week. All over the internet people the idea was passed around: everyone loved the concept of celebrating appreciation and thankfulness together and began creating their own lists… This is mine!
♥ We have an oven! We moved into our house in May this year, but we finally have a fully-functioning oven. This week Malin has cooked up many lovely things, including bread and cakes! Omnomnomnom…
♥ Watching Dexter. Watching some of the Harry Potter movies. Watching the Great British Bake Off. It seems I can’t get enough of plonking myself in front of the television/monitor this week!
♥ My PC being moved to my bedroom: it’s been in the living room since we moved in and now it’s in my room! This and the appearance of our oven are definitely big factors in my cheerfulness levels this week… It’s like we have a real house again!
♥ Making mix-CDs (especially with surprise ‘silly’ tracks!).
♥ Catching-up with my Flickr uploads. I’m getting there… Gradually! I’m less than a month behind now, so it shouldn’t take too much longer for me to get up-to-date. That said, I’m going to stay at a friends this weekend without access to my PC so perhaps I’ll get behind again..!
♥ I adore Sandra’s blog & I’ve had this post with a quote by Shane Koyczan marked as ‘unread’ in my reader since she posted it. Every time I read it again it makes me smile.
♥ Buying gifts for lovely people – September is a month brimming with birthdays! I enjoy browsing the internet for cute/fun things to buy the people in my life. Hopefully they’ll like them as much as I do..!
♥ Seeing my best friend: I don’t see her very frequently, so it’s always a big treat when I do!
Do you write a Things I Love Thursday or gratitude list? If not, what would you write on it this week? If so, please share it with me!
