At the end of every day, I take a few moments to think of things I'm grateful for that happened during the day. Today I'm thankful for the extension I got on my assignment when I didn't have a valid excuse to get it. I used up all the satellite internet while I was house sitting and on the day I had to submit my assignment, the internet said NO. I'm thankful to the library staff at the country library I visited who tried so hard to help me unsuccessfully in connecting to the uni's online platform for "security" reasons - Laptop said NO! I'm super thankful to come home and find my darling little sparky who was in a pickle and moved in to my house who has given me the gift of warm! A brand new heat pump (reverse cycle air conditioners you north islanders call them) had the house toasty when I got home yesterday after a 500 km drive from the opposite end of the island. I was so stuffed, and so happy not to have start the fire and wait for warm the hard way. Thankful for my ADSL2 which allowed me to tidy up my assignment and have it submitted first thing this morning. Thankful for IGA and my $250 gift card win which came in the mail! So many things to be thankful for, so many people to be thankful for. Thankful to iamTezr for giving me a bit of a clue about my Penguin leakage problems too. What are you thankful for right now?
