ss - grateful


A week of hazy and sunny days


sunrays visible through my new shades


sharp pencils that smell good


stracciatella ice cream


a bunch of small goats running around


friends that watched the same cartoons as you did


sleeping ten more minutes, and then another ten


a prompt every friday...

It takes blogging to remind us of all our benefits.

Wiley Coyote and the Roadrunner? Be glad there is not snow where you are.

Shadow said...

anthonynorth said...

A heartfelt list there. Great.

As we are for you, Ms. Mood.

linda may said...

We all have so many things to be grateful for don't we. Just being given the chance to recognize that is good too.
Lovely prompt and post.

Linda Jacobs said...

Ah, yes, the smell of pencils! These are some of the best things, aren't they? What kind of ice cream?

Devil Mood said...

Hey Lucy :)

Rinkly Rimes, you're right. Sometimes it does.

SirBarrett: More like Quick Draw McGraw, remember that? :)
Snow would be a miracle around here.

Shadow: lovely duo, right? lol

Anthony: Yes, it is.

Murat: Aw, thank you :)

Linda May: Yes and I was just mentioning a few silly ones. :)

Linda Jacobs: They're yummy. Stracciatella is cream and chocolate bits. It seems it's called chocolate chip ice cream in North America. But any ice cream would do really...

I love the smell of my pencils...it always reminds me of school. i've even been known to smell the box of wax crayons my daughter uses....writing implement sniffers of the world,unite!

your poetry is always good...

25 comments? Well, you do rule in all our hearts, after all. Come and go as you please, you had us the instant we read your winning words :-)

tumblewords said...

Wow! A fine list, very fine!

Patois said...

Ah, the joys of all the little things wrapped into one big gratitude.

keithsramblings said...

Thanks for reminding me - and others here - of the smell of pencils!Just loved this post.

Tammy said...

I loved that photo! You chose such wonderfully simple things. A real feel good read.

sirbarrett said...

Olympus indeed! I had to do some digging to find out what that meant and delved into some Greek mythology: Theoganies. The part I missed was who Corus' father is, who he took the kingdom from, and from whom Zeus overthrew? A bit confused. Rhea disguising a rock in a baby blanket as Zeus to save him reminded me of the biblical story of sending Moses down the river to save him from King Herod. Intriguing...

Ps said...

WE are grateful to YOU for entertaining us post after post.
Well said.
Cheers

lol, that was fun, and 25 comments on your last post ;)

Devil Mood said...

Danni: ah, I'm impressed that I made you travel so far back in time. :)

Niall, that wasn't supposed to be poetry, just a bunch of sentences held together. Looove that smell :)

MissAlister: I'm reminded of the Queen of Alice in Wonderland for some reason. lol I hope I'm not like that.

Tumblewords: thanks :)

Patois: You've said it so well!

Keith: Ah yes, it's quite striking, isn't it?

Tammy: thank you. I really love light reflexes.

SirBarrett: I'm afraid you've gone further than I have. Didn't Zeus overthrow Uranus? I don't know really. It's perfectly natural that you found that similarity because all those stories stems from the same archetypes and, all in all, they tell the same things over and over again.

Sis: Thanks, yours contributed too.

niyo said...

really liked the image you used. where's that from?

heart-warming post that was. i don't know about the smell of pencils... but having a freshly-sharpened new pencil by itself used to make me happy. new stationery and all that :)

Devil Mood said...

Niyo: It's from everystockphoto I think. Yes, pencils are lovely and I happen to like their smell too.
