gratitude: gracias, grazie, danke

Post its, every color, every shape.  Capturing thoughts, reminders, chores, shopping lists.  Dotting the kitchen, the car, the bedroom…what do people do if they can’t tape up reminders around the house?

Ah, the magic of a Sharpie.  A rainbow of colors, visible from across the room, capable of labeling anything from file folders to mason jars.  God bless the Sharpie.

Dogs sleeping in yoga positions.  Yes, this is an actual thing – Phoebe can sleep on her back, legs stretched out in four different directions, neck twisted at an unnatural angle, all the while snoring away.  Nothing’s gonna make you smile faster than that.

Amazon Echo.  That’s right, we’ve been bit by the Alexa bug, and I love this thing.  It tells me the news when I ask.  It plays music for me, tells me the weather, and will even play Jeopardy if I’m in the mood to feel trivia-dense.  Alexa will even set alarms and reminders for me which is super handy when my hands are wrist deep in dinner and I can’t write a post in note.

Gracias, grazie, danke.

  1. I love the doggie Yoga sleeping position. While my body complains if I try it, Shasta seems quite comfortable with it. Post-it notes, my white board on the refrigerator notes, all these things I use as reminders because otherwise the thought will be forgotten – but I have not succumbed to Alexa. I’m afraid she would make it far too easy to do more Amazon shopping, and it appears I am very weak-willed in that area.

    • Oh yes, there is a HARD CORE BAN on Alexa shopping in our house. I already do plenty of damage on my laptop. 😳
      My instagram is basically 100% dog — people probably think I don’t have kids — and yoga sleeping is my fav right now.
