Thankful Thursday: From the Shallow End

I've got the giggles.

During this month of official thanks giving, many people are posting daily gratitudes on Facebook. But instead of joining in their earnest efforts I feel like the kid in church, doubled over and snorting with inappropriate laughter.

I just wanna have fun.

On this Thankful Thursday, I am splashing in the shallow end. I'll be back to laps and diligence shortly but for now, please join me in gratitude for the light side. It's a large pool, there's room for all sorts of thankful.

Shallow, Light Delights

Poems inspired by the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
This show is a screeching wreck. I can't stand these people, and I can't turn away. Poet Leigh Stein is making art of the camp — or is it camp of the "art" ?

My new favorite is Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
(yes, the name is ridiculous).

Magazine Binge
, Elle, More, Vanity Fair, O  . . .
About twice a year, I indulge in a magazine marathon. I've got more, ummm, literary choices stacked up around the house, but like overloading on junk food, returning to good-for-me reading is so much better after all that easy, nutrition-less munching. 

And speaking of munching . . .

Mixed Nuts —  my everymeal!
It's a salt fix, a party mix, a salad topping, and when you add a few raisins, it's a sweet.


It's Thankful Thursday, a weekly pause to express gratitude for the people, places and things that bring joy. What are you thankful for today?
