I am Grateful, Week 6

Hey guys and welcome back to week 6 (already?!) of I am Grateful.

1  I am grateful for the evermore lingering morning chill.  I have been making it a point to be up at 5 when N goes to work.  This gives me a chance to do some work when everything is so beautifully still. We live right on a busy street and the huge window in my office allows a lot of traffic noise in during rush hour, so these early mornings are especially nice.  What sweetens the deal is the morning runs I have been taking.  I am a wimp of epic proportions and I absolutely do not like the heat.  These mornings lately have been just heaven sent, in my honest opinion.  The air is so cool and crisp and it gets me in the mindset for fall.  The makings of a good morning right there!

2  I am really grateful for the #blogtember challenge.  It's been really enlightening so far and it has really forced me to do more real, honest writing rather than short, flittering posts.  I mean, I like those, don't get me wrong. And I knowwww you don't want a novel from me everyday.  It's just nice to get back to writing writing.

3  Budgets.  I know, I know, no one is really thankful for budgets.  Except that I am.  And that is such an adult thing to say.  But I am thankful and here's why: it gives me another hobby.  I love sitting down and mapping it all out.  My left brain really thrives on those days.  I have grown into being creative but my roots are in logic so the budget puzzle is right up my alley.  But also, it let's us plan.  And by plan I really mean dream!  With it all laid out, that trip to Prague suddenly seem attainable.  And I am doubly thankful for that.

So, what are you thankful for, guys?  Link up with us throughout the week!
