Small Things Saturday Blog Hop

On this, the first day of the new year, the small thing I appreciate is coffee with my husband, both of us busy at our laptops, while our daughters play their computers nearby (and the boy plays a game in his room). We are safe and warm and happily engaged in our own special interests and yet connected in our love of technology and games.

I appreciate that yesterday, the girlies insisted on geek camp and chose a documentary about dolphins for us to watch. Lily filled her notebook with drawings of dolphins while watching.

And I always appreciate the comfort of a cat in my lap.

Happy New Year!

We're down to 2 this morning. They've gone to Grandma's... next door... so the 9yr old is playing on the DS and I'm pretending - btwn reading about 3 novels - to tidy up.

Was alone... hubby's home.

Oh how I love a purring cat in my lap! Coffee in hand and quiet at the laptop is a bonus! (I'm lucky to have that one right now too :)
