My Daily Dose of Gratitude - A Top Ten List

Today was a mundane Monday filled with rain, endless details that seemed to impact no one positively and the tickling beginnings of a sore throat.  Before I spiral into "blah", I thought I should take some time to capture the beauty of this mundane Monday:

10.  I woke up this morning as did my family.
 9.  My little one got ready with no tantrums and was waiting on the bus with ten minutes to spare.
 8.  I spoke to my oldest daughter (in college) who is safe and thriving.
 7.  I laughed with my husband
6.  My anniversary roses are in full bloom.
5.  It's not snowing.
 4.  I put RainX on my car yesterday!
 3.  My class through Story Circle Network was posted today and I have a student registered.
 2.  My 35 lb beagle mix thinks she's a lap dog and is climbing on me as I try to type.
1.  I received new books in the mail which is always exciting (thus, the side bar).

That was much easier and quicker than I thought, although perhaps not necessarily in the right order, and I could come up with a few more.  What's your Daily Ten?

    3. The "loaner" computer I had at work today
    4. Leftovers! No need to cook tonight!
    5. Email from a friend I had not heard from in a long time
