1) Pleasant summer nights with my sweetie out on the back deck.
2) A two-week vacation where *all* of us get to stay home, sleep in, and be together.
3) Spending time with good friends, doing things we like, and feeling home away from our house.

1. The school year is down to 10 calendar days/8 weekdays/4 days where kids are actually gonna show up! Yay!
2. [livejournal.com profile] fiannaharpar's all day presentation today went super-duper well, despite her having a sore throat! Double-yay!!
3. I will be receiving mp3s of "Dans Profundo", as well as the good version of "People Rejoice" and "I Seek Your Face" in the near future! Triple-yay!!!!

I admit to being a selfish artist and being most excited about #2, but the thought of getting those tracks on mp3, and then being able to burn a CD with *several* (though not all) of my recent works, plus capability of mass-burning (sounds religious, no?) 4 CDs at a time on my colleague's machine, is making me more giddy than I think I ought to be. But what the hey.

It's been too long. I'm thankful for:

1) Teaching private lessons at my house which bring me joy and satisfaction. (*waves* to new student [livejournal.com profile] sorakirei!! ^_^( o)==***
2) Having the ability to write music, hear the music I've written, and hold the score in my grubby little hands.
3) Having a wonderful wife to share all this with, who loves me and supports me.

1) Football with friends: [livejournal.com profile] fiannaharpar, [livejournal.com profile] jcipia, [livejournal.com profile] sk4p, [livejournal.com profile] drquuxum, and let's not forget [livejournal.com profile] lstrobel!

2) Seeing my little girl participate in our church's little tableaux in her sheep's hat and tabard with me dressed as Joseph- and then she yells, "Daddy, Daddy!" (I can see the tabloid- Husband of Mary secretly fathered illigitimate livestock?? Read more about it in the Bethlehem Star!!)

3) 2-hour delay at school!

I'm thankful for:

1) The excitement of moving into our new house.

2) A snuggly wife on the couch for a pathetic football game (luckily they switched from NE vs CLE to IND vs TEN eventually).

3) A daughter who's saying "I nuv you!" a lot more often.

Today's Thankful Three:

1) I'm thankful that I live in a country that has free elections, faulted though some of them may be.
2) I'm thankful that I have and exercise my right to free speech.
3) I'm thankful that I am seeing more of my friends and loved ones determined to stay and fight the fight rather than turn and run.

And, becuase today's special, a bonus:
4) I'm thankful I've been with my beloved Jenn for 5 years on this day. :-) I love you, sweetie.

I am thankful for:

1) A daughter that wakes up cute and in a good mood.
2) The ability to run up and down stairs multiple times to get previously-mentioned new music sutff in my closet and do everything that I need to do.
3) An extra plan period to get all of this done and more.

4) I am thankful for my wife, because she is beautiful and I love her very much.

1. For the music of Ray Charles. That's what I say.

2. For the opportunity to spend time today with my wonderful wife and see a movie (in a theater, mind you) (or, for [livejournal.com profile] fraterrisus, /thee-ay'-tur/ ;-})for the first time in frickin' forever.

3. For Lake's excitement and pride in naming the parts of my face correctly, and knowing the words for some of them. It do my heart good.
