I thought I'd make today a Plinky Friday, but when I went over there, the first question I got was "what do you do to relax?". There's no way I could write a whole entry off of that question with out sounding like a broken record. Instead, I decided I would post about things I am thankful for on this particular Friday.

First of all, I'm thankful it is Friday (can I get a Woop, Woop?). I know. I know. Every one is thankful for Fridays, but this one in particular seems exceptionally sweet. Thursday turned out to be the most physically demanding day. It did not help that I started out with a poor night's sleep (thanks to the storms). I taught a 7AM class, walked, got some science started, spent the afternoon on the confocal microscope, and drove through crap traffic to the other side of town to teach my 6PM class. I was exhausted by the time I made it home. But that day is over and today, today is all new.

Which brings me to another thing I am thankful for. Today the sun is shining, the sky is blue and the threat of storms doesn't happen until later this evening. I was able to scooter in to work this morning and do my daily walk outside. It's breezy, but there's that hint of summer in the air. It makes me want to take off my shoes and walk around barefoot.

Last, I'm thankful for the quiet weekend that approaches. I have zero obligations this weekend. My work load is light today and I'll probably get out of here early. There are some serious chores that need to be done this weekend (mow yard, clean, clean, laundry), but it all is going to happen at my leisure. The most important things that need to happen is to spend some time with Chris. And maybe get caught up on some TV.

What are you thankful for today?
