Monday Gratitude: Things I Love

Today I am grateful…Here’s another installment of Monday Gratitude, including a list of things I am thankful for.


What is Monday Gratitude?

Monday Gratitude is a new feature on my blog where I’ll be listing neat things that I find and the events, books, blogs, and people that I’m thankful for.


small-tear-heart Raynor is starting to feel better. For those of you who don’t know, my sweet four year old rescue dog suffers from a disease called Intervertebral Disc Disease. It’s a horrible disease and this time around, when it flared up again the poor pup had a bout of Pancreatitis at the same time. My dog is my child so I’ve been heartbroken. But I’m SO beyond thankful for all of the positive thoughts, prayers, well-wishes, etc. that have helped him heal. He was even visited today by two dogs in the neighborhood to check up on him!


small-tear-heart My book Harrowed is BECOMING A THING! It’s up on Goodreads AND YOU CAN HELP ME REVEAL THE COVER. In August. Because YAY.

small-tear-heart  I went to Michael’s craft store and they had HALLOWEEN stuff out already. Most excellent.

small-tear-heart  Loving the Spotify Workday Pop playlist. It’s so good!

small-tear-heart  Summer Weather – I know a year in California is like a constant summer but lately it’s really felt like summer. Our neighborhood had a 4th of July block party, we’ve had a wonderful breeze for the past two weeks, and we’ve been barbecuing non-stop when we’re not pampering our healing pooch.

small-tear-heart I planted a garden. It’s not dead yet! Yay.

small-tear-heart  I was trying to figure out how on earth to start a Podcast…until I came across Brian LeTendre’s Making Ear Candy: The Audio Confectioner’s Guide to Podcasting. I’m madly in love with this book and I think it’s really helped me in understanding how to put something like this together. You can pick up a copy here.

small-tear-heart  My amazing friend Julie Hutchings finished revising THE BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD, SERIOUSLY IT’S MY FAVORITE BOOK EVER. She’s querying it and I am so excited for her. Please, let someone snatch it up and love it like it should be loved. She also did a Monday gratitude recently. Loved that post.

small-tear-heart  Back to school shopping supplies are out. Lord help my bank account.

    I’ve been listening to podcasts a lot lately. They’ve gotten so much more popular in the last year or so, it’s amazing.

    I’m glad your puppy is feeling better!

    yay Harrowed!

    I’m so pleased to hear Raynor is getting better 😀

    Today I’m grateful for supportive people who’re helping me heal.

    I’m grateful for good sleep after a horrible bout of insomnia.

    I’m really pleased to see the huge summer storms rolling in this year.

    I’m also grateful to see many of my friends who’ve been struggling these past couple of months recovering and writing and loving life again. 🙂
