What are you grateful for today? (via Cake & Carrots)

What a great idea! Of course, I’ve heard of people showing gratitude, but never in such a consistent way.

Today, I’m grateful for:

1. My family.
2. New friendships.
3. My new full-time job, which will have insurance in 2 months.
4. My pets – on my worst days, they are such a comfort, and are otherwise a joy.
5. My health.
6. My car, which is still puttering along & getting me where I need to go.
7. Crafts – when I pick up the crochet hook, spindle, or other tool, I go into the crafty zone. It’s a wonderful place.
8. Audiobooks – great for commutes & craft marathons.
9. My counselor. I feel so much better after talking with her.
10. Authors – those who create the wondrous worlds I read about.

What are you grateful for today? For the past 5 years, I've written a daily gratitude list to a group of women over email. Every. Single. Day. Ok, well, every weekday and sometimes I miss a day or two, but still, it's been a consistent practice. Over 5 years, that's a lot of gratitude! I'm sure you've heard that jotting out a gratitude list can have an impact on your life. Well, it's true. I can tell you from experience that no matter how crappy I feel, how down in the dumps, wr … Read More

About Bevin

I grew up reading stories of all kinds, but the fantasy genre has long been a favorite. Whether it's knights and sorcerors, Jedis or Browncoats, I love them all. I wanted to find my own secret passage to Narnia, study with the Heralds of Valdemar, or become a member of the elven wolfrider pack. I'm sure it was no surprise to my parents that when I discovered there was a club at my college dedicated to medieval life, I'd join. They likely didn't expect that 15 years later, I am still an active member. I acquired the nickname "Bevin the SnarlingBadger" from a friend in the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international not-for-profit educational organization which focuses on studying aspects of medieval life through first-person, hands-on research and practice. Yes, for some that means strapping on armor & practicing combat. For others it means studying a particular culture and time period, developing a "slice of life" persona. For me it means exploring arts & sciences, dressing up in pretty gowns, hanging out with other people who enjoy doing things the "hard way." Outside of the SCA, I'm passionate about animal rights & pet nutrition (and I'm trying to convince myself to eat healthier too), I love movies, audiobooks, tv (Netflix and Hulu are frequent accompaniment for craft-time), crochet, handspinning... I've also been playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, since I was invited to participate in beta testing. I love the immersive quality of the game, and play primarily to watch the stories develop. So, this is a bit of me. There's more. Thanks for stopping by!
