Aside from being grateful for the nifty faery video below, I gotta whole slew of happy makings this week.

Gratitude:

* doctor called in Imitrex prescription finally
* Myrrh helping me with a photo project involving fire and darkness
* doing PT stretches at my desk daily
* Hopworks DOA (Deluxe Organic Ale)
* Stark Naked Pizza w/ Joshua (and more DOA)
* Bumblekiss breakfast with Pher
* nice weather over the weekend
* Ristretto lattes and good conversation
* time to rest when I'm not feeling well
* clover cookie and latte and seeing Mary Suzanne (and Zack and etc.) at Backspace
* Willow's tolerance for more frequent injections, and her endless affection
* officially meeting K.D. (sweet doggie) at City Flowers Monday
* raw walnut halves
* Fries and beers at Swift with Joshua
* yummy cheesy sammich at Half and Half with Pher
* bag of sweet organic Pink Lady apples
* creative friends, seeing their creations on First Thursday
* roommates who have always paid rent and utilities on time
* birds pairing up
* unexpected sunshine
* geeking out over poi with a student worker
* favorite skirt, 15 years old and still cute - I love making clothes last
* physical therapy that hurts so good
* drugs that fight off headaches
* green/offwhite camo thigh high sox
* shimmery olive green eyeshadow
* Verve latte from Barista

Insert something witty here. I'm pretty tired, been sort of a crazy week, emotionally. Serious headache and hip is quite sore from PT. Sorta wanna curl up in a dark place for a couple days. I'm okay though. Can still smile in my shimmery green eyeshadow and funky camo sox. <3

Haven't done a gratitude list in a while - funny how the lack of them always coincides with feeling awful. Hmmmm. ;)

I found some things lingering on my werk computer so I thought I'd post them before getting started on a new list for this week.

A couple weeks ago, I was grateful for:

* handcrafted chai from Spella w/ Myrrh
* pretty red umbrella in the rain
* leaving the office to recycle materials
* dancing
* handmade earrings
* grrltime
* coffee & baby oranges w/ Myrrh and MSL
* colorful sunrise
* strange warm gusty dry January days
* nightcap at Swift w/ Jim and Val
* Mystique masks in Pioneer Place
* "you're cute" and "you look magical" comliments on the street after visiting Mystique

Here are a couple of my favorite Facebook pictures from the Faerieworlds Winterfest so far - faeries need coffee.




At the Faerieworlds Marketplace, to see Adam Hurst play and the end of the Saturday evening. I think my afternoon costume change from faery to satyr meant I missed the reported costume contest, oops.


In the lounge with Matt at the Bad Faeries Masquerade ball. I was a little tipsy and trying not to hit people whilst spinning poi.

* Irish cheese and organic crackers
* Sitting outide and sipping lattes w/ Chris
* best brunch ever with Joshua. Perfect omelet with Dani's chicken's eggs and local bacon, grilled onions, mushrooms, cheese, with Spella and yams and toast and stone fruit and omg yum

* junk food and laziness and Batman video game with Preston
