1. I like knowing that my friends in Houston are safe. I'm lucky in that everyone I know who lives in Houston is safe, and though many have flood/damage to their homes, they are, in the end, ok. Events like this make me grateful to just be able to keep going with my day-to-day drag. It's a bit cliche, but true all the same.
2. I love my fun plants! Not much is blooming now, but both of my plants I got at the farmers market earlier in the year are doing great. One is growing these cool green leaves that almost glow because of how they're placed in the window. The other, I think it's called mother of thousands, has it's happy little baby sprouts on the edge of the leaves as always, but just this week I noticed they're sprouting little roots so now the leaf looks furry!
3. I love school supplies and new pencils and markers. It's always a challenge this time of year because it's so tempting to snatch up lots of fun colored folders and notepads and cool school supplies I don't really need. This year I restrained myself to a single pack of regular number 2 yellow pencils. For anyone who is interested in pencils, I recommend the instagram account of CW Pencil Enterprise. They're pencil connoisseurs and have all kinds of cool things.
5. I like crossing things off of lists! I've been fairly productive at work this week, largely because I'm going out of town tomorrow, and it's very satisfying to scratch things off as I do them. Especially with my rainbow pens (see #3). Of course there are a bunch of things I won't get to till I get back, but still....
I hope everyone is hanging in there this week, and thanks as always to LeeAnna for hooking us up!
