One Thousand Gifts-1

Captain’s Log, Stardate 11.17.2006

I’m participating in the “One Thousand Gifts” list from Christian Women Online. Click on the picture to find out more about it.

1. Water, which I’m drinking a lot of lately (yay me)
2. The discipline to exercise 5 days last week and 4 days this week so far
3. A good book I read recently: Scoop by Rene Gutteridge
4. Bills paid on time
5. A spiritual joy in my quiet times that I had been missing lately until I started the Bible in 90 Days again.
6. The golf ball exercises I’ve been using to help my foot problems
7. Denise Austin’s program—challenging but not too hard, not too easy, and only 30 minutes
8. TiVo, which allows me to record and play my exercise programs with ease
9. A new book I just received: @Home for the Holidays by Meredith Efken
10. Another new book I just received: Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
11. My New Living Translation Bible, which makes the Bible in 90 Days reading so easy and engrossing
12. My online friend Marcus Goodyear, for all his recent link-love (platonic, of course. ;))
13. My ergonomic keyboard (my wrists are thankful)
14. My ergonomic, wireless Kensington Trackball (love, love, love it)
15. My ergonomic chair (which cost a fortune but is very comfortable)
16. The peace and relaxation of making cards
17. The joy of giving my cards away
18. The satisfaction of knowing that home-made cards as gifts are cheap but nice gifts to give
19. Honey, which has been soothing my sore throat lately
20. My Zojirushi hot water pot, which has paid for itself ten times over in the 2 years I’ve had it (I wrote a review here).
21. The microwavable neck wrap I got for Captain Caffeine at Bath and Body Works.
22. My Alphasmart, for obvious reasons listed here and here.
23. The decorated rubber flip-flops my aunty gave me, which are both cushioning and stable to support my ACL surgery knee.
24. The yummy lemon marsala pistachio breadcrumb chicken pasta we ate the other night.
25. The yummy unagi (eel) we ate last night.


  1. I was with ya right up to that eel part.

    ; )

  2. Wow. I gave you links. You listed me as a gift. And I ranked higher than eel!

    I'm not as big a fan of eel. But give me some shashimi albacore or yellow tail. I don't need rice. Just the fish. Mmmm.
