Things I'm Loving This Thursday

Kelly's Diner is in full swing right now as I run back and forth to get the kids their dinner selections. It's a leftover, throw it together kind of night. But I can't let Thursday go by without playing along with Teresha for Things I'm Loving This Thursday!

Time for one of those off the cuff posts. Here are the first 10 words that come to my mind when I think of what I'm grateful for on this rainy Thursday here in New York. I'll add my little explanations too.

I'm loving...

  1. Guitars (rock and roll)
  2. Napkins (the boys are making a mess now)
  3. NetFlix (movies that I want to see!)
  4. Elastic (room to breathe)
  5. Ponytails (quick hairdo)
  6. Grass (don't think I'm turning into a Woodstock chick!)
  7. Levertov (love this poet)
  8. Email (catching up with everyone; quicker than phone calls)
  9. Crumbs (brownie leftovers)
  10. Pink (makes Jillian smile)
Back to my diner apron. See you all soon. Take a moment to visit my friend, Teresha over at Marlie & Me to share what you're loving too!

Great list! I would put green instead of blue and I don't know Levertov. Elastic is a great addition!

Diane said...

You cracked me up at elastic! Very thankful for that too. :O)

I especially like #'s 4 & 5!!! I have to grow my hair out to have a pony again! I'm just about there!

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

I always appreciate elastic after brownies, cupcakes, ice cream. :-)

Thanks for playing along!

Fun list! Just off the top of my head - sleep and chocolate.

Happy weekend,
Karen

This is one literature teacher that has to go look up Levertov! I also loved your elastic comment. Boy am I feeling that love, sister!

Susan Fobes said...

Glad you're back Kelly!

I love your thoughts and comments for this Thursday. Nice to hear your thoughts and sense of humor.

Just teach Jillian not to be one of those girls Pink talks about in "Stupid Girls" - love that song.

Is it nice to be home this week outside that courtroom atmosphere?

welcome to my world of poetry said...

An excellent list, it's surprising the things that makes one happy,

Have a good day,
Yvonne,

Debbie said...

Love this list. Especially the little blurb next to grass:)

Kim said...

I have to agree that elastics are my life saver as a mother. Naveen is really into hair pulling these days! Hug that Jillian for me for being so easy to please (I'm sure only in some ways:). Hugs to you too lovely friend!

Great list!
As for me, I am loving Facebook right now. and being able to keep up with the status of most of my friends in Japan, who are safe so far, although still nervous over the aftershocks. And phone service. I got to confirm that my mother and loved ones in the Philippines are all safe and sound.

After chocolate, elastic is a woman's best friend.

Gerri said...

Thank God for elastic!!!

Teri said...

Guitars - rock and roll, baby.

He & Me + 3 said...

That list was great. I am loving your take on them all. Wish I could just grow my hair out long enough for a cool pony tail. I agree...email and texting is much quicker than a phone call.
Hope you have a great week this week.

What a great list! I am grateful for elastic also, especially after spending four days in Baton Rouge eating seafood for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Ok, I'm exaggerating. Slightly. :) Have a great day!
