Today, I am grateful for George's latest recipe, steak fried rice. Yum.
Today, I am grateful for indoor heating, especially with a huge winter storm headed our way.
Today, I am grateful for our crazy golden retriever. She eats icicles, digs holes in the yard, and chews the corners off all our dish towels. She also sheds love like fur everywhere she goes.
In discussing the differences between golden retrievers and Labrador retrievers, Tom Davis wrote, "If Labs were people, they'd be the surgeons, accountants, attorneys, and CEOs--successful, yes, but a little, um, predictable. Goldens, in contrast, are right side, Type B dogs: imaginative, mellow, enemies of routines. Theyd be dancers, musicians, poets, artists--quirky, fun-loving, and full of surprises. You'd want a Labrador to handle your money, but you'd want a golden to throw your party. A couple hours into the festivities, it'd be the one wearing the lampshade." Other than Davis' use of the word mellow, this fits Daisy perfectly. I imagine in about six years, she'll mellow out a bit, just like Hoover did. But for now, she's a crazy icicle-chewing party-girl.
Today, I am grateful to two women, Patti M. and Miriam H., for their thoughtfulness.
What are you grateful for today?
