07:50 pm - Making Lists, Post #9
I am making lists again.

For a while I'd stopped, perhaps because I had lost my mother and she was the champion of list-makers. After that, I'd lost the knack somehow: lists became incomplete bullet points, almost incomprehensible, and they'd lie on my desk as if they were ships wrecked on unseen sandbars, greying from time and weather and rough seas.

Well, that metaphor kind of got away from me.

But I'm back to list-making, and I'm finding it comfortable again. Next up: files for the lists. :)

But today a list of gratitude:
*I am grateful for peanut butter cookies.
*I am grateful for fifteen-year-old CDs of chillout music. (Man, I did love me some Badly Drawn Boy back in the day, and I love that music still.)
*I am grateful to know that Endeavour is shooting its Series 3 in Oxford.
*I am grateful to have crossed one important thing off my master-list of Tasks for the Week.

Are you making lists these days?

Oh, lists! If i couldn't cross things off lists I don't know what I'd do!

All the components, plans and reservations are done for our holiday to Ashland with a visit to Rainkatt after much travail and technical issues with AT&T (wshall speak no more of it)

and I'm thrilled to know that Endeavour is filming series 3. Thank you for the cheering news!

Mental lists count! However, then you don't have the satisfaction of crossing out an entry with vigor once the job is completed. ;)

Hugs!

I make lists at work, but they don't seem to be as satisfying as they used to.

Peanut butter cookies are wonderful.

Work lists are not as fun but perhaps more necessary. ;)
