Thank*full Thursday and some updates

I've been blogging more regularly over at my Sparkpeople blog, keeping it relatively updated with my healthy changes progress. Which is going pretty well - I've been trying out new workout DVD's, and while the weight is not falling off (eating habits have something to do with that,) I feel much better than when I started. That said, the creative ideas are just not a-flowin' here, hence the lack of timely updates.

But...some things I'm thankful for this week:

1. Firefly. And more specifically, Nathan Fillion. I watched the movie "Serenity" a few months ago with my husband, and decided to watch the series, and it rather rocks, which makes it a very sad thing that it was cancelled. Of course, I am not the first person to think that way, as is evidenced by the mass of fan websites, petitions, and Firefly references by Sheldon on Big Bang Theory. Mmm...Nathan Fillion. At least we still have Castle. He is such a fine Canadian.

2. My alarm clock, which diligently wakes me up each morning at 5:30AM to work out.

Yeah, not so thankful for that.

Coffee, though. Very thankful for coffee.

3. My public library. Such a wide variety of workout dvd's. Exercize is more fun with variety. And I do love the "reserve by computer" feature, which I use often. I think I may have rhapsodized about that before.

4. The books I've been loving this week, namely:

The Good, the Bad, and the Undead by Kim Harrison

Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris

What the Night Knows by Dean Koontz

Not one intellectual giant or classic among them. Sometimes you just want something to enjoy. And I love these Kim Harrison books - they take place right here in northern Kentucky, and although it is an alternate reality she is describing, the characters do go to real places in the metro Cincinnati area. Lots of fun. Have to thank my friend E for recommending those.

5. Girl Scout Thin Mints. Not exactly fitting in with the healthier lifestyle, but they have been helpful this particular week, if you catch my drift. Helped me keep my temper in check.

And now, the bed for which I am ever thankful is calling my name. I will leave you with someone about whom to dream.

Ew. That is SO not Patrick Swayze. Your thumbnail on FB made it look like PS. Now I have to go google a picture of him.
