I'm obviously not doing these every day, because really, holy crap, that's a lot of tiny blog posts, or a lot of regular blog posts with nonrelated footnotes. (Which, for the people that are/can do this, way to go!)

However, regardless of how often I actually post anything about this Daily Grace stuff (and the hippydippy name makes me cringe *just* a bit (sorry!)), as I go through the day, I find myself trying to notice good things. Making mental notes of that song or that cloud or whatever. And considering that I'm rather a Carmen Crankypants in reality, it's an interesting shift.

I still notice plenty of annoying, stupid, ridiculous things; I haven't become a pod person or anything! But I tell myself, Dammit, you're not supposed to think about that stuff! Be nice, for crying out loud!

So I won't tell you about how I can't sleep and how I have trouble keeping track of the days because I do so little and how I should probably just suck it up and become a shut-in. And that my computer is so slow all the time--doesn't it know I've got work to do, even if the photo files are huge? Or the giant fucking cockroach/waterbug/BEAST OF SATAN that was wiggling in my kitchen sink tonight as I was rinsing the cheese grater (mm, pepper jack nachos.). SHUDDER TIMES INFINITY.

Nope, I will continue on with the list for today, which actually includes three more things that were leftovers, so to speak, yesterday. That's kind of neat, right?

1. Crystallized honey in a PBH sandwich.

2. Running into someone I haven't seen for years--right on my own street. Holy shit.

3. Fun picture taking with friends.

4. Going to another freelance assignment! (I hope I'm not jinxing it by these mentions of photography. It's kind of exciting and I'm trying to jump in as much as I can.)

5. Seeing very feisty democracy in action!

As a footnote (ha! see what I did there?), there have been some new friends visiting here in the last couple days. Hello and please don't hate me. Just kidding. Sometimes I swear a lot; I hope you're not too delicate. Good luck slogging through. I like comments, so say hi if you want.

I like that attitude, finding gratitude in everyday living. For me, it might be a hot cup of coffee, browsing a local bookstore, a long February walk. Thanks for the inspiration. Enjoyed browsing here.
