Grace in Small Things #1

I've enjoyed reading the Grace posts on so many blogs for quite a while but just haven't gotten around to starting my own series. Maybe partly because I felt daunted by the "rule" of posting every day. Well, I just decided that I don't have to post anything every day unless I want to. So there.

I'm having a bad day and after reading SheShe's GiST post today, I decided it's time to start my own. You'll probably hear more about my bad day later, but right now it's about the happy little things:

1. The smell of homemade marinara sauce simmering on the stove.

2. Anticipating the first bite of cookie-brownies, fresh out of the oven. (Glorioski, these are good!)

3. Leftover homemade macaroni and cheese. (Gee, think I'm hungry?)

4. My knee feeling good enough to make the marinara and the brownies.

5. Starting PT again with the same therapist I had in the fall. Cool guy, good workout, nice that he knows my history.


  1. Hey, good for you! Sounds like you're on the mend!

  2. I love the smell of homemade marinara. One of the saddest times of my life was when I had morning sickness throughout the month of August when I was pregnant with my daughter. My husband usually cooks boatloads of marinara to freeze for the winter during that month, and I usually love, love, love the smell. That year it made me want to vomit.

    And leftover homemade mac & cheese? My favorite breakfast food of all time.

  3. Ah, the same therapist--how lovely for you! And helpful! Glad to hear your appetite is healthy--I am going to follow the link to learn more about cookie-brownies now.
