I am grateful for
1.the wind, rain, sleet and snow (and getting to drive in it). I like to drive a lot, and I love my car because it enjoys the winter as much as I do. I enjoy being able to drive through the worst kind of weather and know that when the idiot in front to of me is taking a sharp turn too quickly and is dangerously close to spinning out into the ditch, I have plenty of time, good winter tires and can stop well out of the way.
2. I am also grateful for my very warm Irish sweater. It is an actual sweater from Ireland proper – all cabled and warm. need I say more?
3. good coffee. hmmm coffee – ground properly, brewed well and staying warm in my travel mug/container/thingy
4. just being.
