giving thanks, and that's about it

Well we knew it couldn't last. I'm sorry to report that my internet connection is looking quite sad right now.

We had a huge storm overnight, but it's been sunny and lovely (if windy and cold) all morning and I had been using the internet just fine up until about a half hour ago. Don't know why it's suddenly gone awry, but since I don't know how much longer it'll be running at all, I'm going to post as quickly as possible so as not to forfeit the day without a fight. Then I'll hope for the best.

30 days of thanks

Today I'm thankful for:

My internet connection. Trying to look on the positive here--it could be out altogether instead of just being really, really slow. Mah.

But seriously...for the past nine days I've been writing a post and then a related "thankful" item. Today it's all about thanks, so I'll simply give a list of things I'm thankful for.

*Each link is now clickable!*

Hopefully I shall see you on the morrow my friends!

Hope your connection improves - I'm getting a bit panicky at the thought of missing out on my daily shot of "espresso"!!

We got that crazy storm too last night. Funny, how you and I usually experience the same storm within the same amount of time. Not funny though is that now your internet has acted up. Hope it corrects itself real soon!

Cute list!

Got my fingers crossed for you -- though it's complicating my typing, I must say. ;)

Blogger Fran said...

I am thankful for your internet connection also!

We had a huge storm up here last night, too. Sure hope your internet connection hangs in there... :) Thanks for all the fun links! Great idea - I may copy you sometime! :)

*Gill, the connection is still kicking, very slowly; let's hope it keeps up!

*Giulia, guess we're really not that far apart. That one last night was pretty bad, but it's odd that the connection was fine until several hours later. Boh.

*Sara, please don't keep your fingers crossed too long. Cramps suck too.

*Fran, thanks! Keep thinking positive thoughts for it ;)

*MM, feel free to borrow the idea. Lots of things to be thankful for, so the idea can be used many times over I believe :)

I hope nothing was damaged during the storm and your connection is up and running soon.

That's a great list! Thanks for the comment on my blog. Hope your connection to the www is intact and serving you well. Thanks again!

Yes, I would definitely be thankful for a nice smooth internet connection. Even if it's slow, still better than nothing.

Don't know what we'd all be doing now without this amazing networking invention!

Have a great weekend, Michelle

Good list.

I heart lemurs too. (esp. ring tailed, and those fox ones)

Hope your connection starts clicking along quickly agian.

I saw that laughing baby video yesterday (linked in Maliavale's sidebar), and it totally made my day. I dare anyone to watch that without giggling. It simply cannot be done.

Blogger cheeky said...

Hey! Thanks for the linky love. Loved the baby laughing on youtube. Too cute! Who needs toys.

Blogger Roam2Rome said...

Innnn booooocca al lupo! :)

We had a storm last night, too, but most likely it was much, much lighter than what you get over there...

Amen on the ENTIRE list, of course, and I LOVE the shape of it.

Good job!

I am thankful for you.

love your list of thanks! (lemurs!) good luck with the internet connection!

*NYC, thanks; I think we're back again. Maybe ;)

*Jennifer, glad you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

*Andie, I'm seriously lost with the internet; *so* grateful I can use it again.

*Taffiny, my friend adopted a lemur for me one year. His name was Bandu and I have his photo somewhere around here....

*Stefanie, yeah, cuteness kills ;)

*Cheeky, glad you enjoyed. It was just too cute not to share!

*Roam, I don't know what is going on, but we've had some of the nastiest storms I can remember in the last few weeks--especially odd for so early in the rainy season.

*Scarlett, I knew you'd enjoy this :)

*Stelle, lemurs rule!!!!!!
