Backpacking & Outside / {Grateful} / {Winter}

grateful {wednesday}


At the end of terrible tuesday it became terrific tuesday after two hours in the craft shop making with clay.

The way kobuk greets me when I walk in the door after having been gone for hours.  So loved.


Sunshine and chacos.  Yes.


This yellow light in our kitchen from a kind man named Ken.  Thanks, Ken.


Plant explosion.  Cactus always remind of me a three week vacation with my grandparents in the southwest when I was twelve.


Today’s thesis office.


Jared.  Greatest husband ever.  This week he re-caulked the bathtub seal, hacked this lamp, and bought me popsicles when my stomach was feeling wonky.



Happy Humpday, Everyone!  I confess, I’ve had better weeks–I’m taking a psychology course as an elective this semester and it’s much too advanced for me.  Holy stress.  I may be withdrawing because I don’t actually need it, but my pride and I haven’t quite come to grips with that yet.  Though yesterday’s meltdown was a good start.

It’s been so sunny and in the high 40’s/low 50’s in the last couple days, which means chaco weather and an outdoor office.  So glad it’s Wednesday!  What are you grateful for this week?

  1. I’m grateful for you reminding me to be grateful. I had terrible Tuesday, too. But now it’s Wednesday, the sun is shining, a puppy is in the office with me, and I have a cold Coke sitting on my desk.


  2. Love this…although I’m a wee bit jealous you can see grass.

    Also, that lamp? IT’S SO AMAZING. I might be a tad jealous of that too.

    And, for goodness sake, DROP THAT COURSE. But I totally hear ya on the pride thing. I’ve been there.


    • Anne, I think YOU are AMAZING.
      I’d been eyeballing swing arm lamps all over the place, and then Ken, who my in-laws bought their new house from, gave me the lamp because he didn’t want to move it. I wasn’t wild about the color at first but it’s grown on me like a fungus. Now we’re in luuuuuuuv.
      We’ve been craving knee-deep snow, but we have the balmy instead… so we’ll wear chacos and be grateful:).
      I’m pretty sure if I keep this course I will not finish my thesis in time, so I think I’m going to have to cut ‘er loose. I already bought the books, but Jared says it isn’t worth my sanity. So glad you agree!
