So thankful for the weather--a little breeze, a bit sticky, 70's and sunny. I'd take that every day of the year if I could. And my gardens! I swear, you can stand beside them and watch things grow by the hour--tulips, phlox, coral bells and daffodils are blooming. Lilacs are coming soon. This is my absolute favorite time of the year--which is why I'm not sitting at my laptop much because I'm busy digging in the dirt and gazing at all the life bursting in my yard.
Birds and bees, the sneaky rabbit who hops across my front porch. The sharp cry of the blackbird, the soft call of doves, the friendly chirp of robins and the flash of yellow finches in the birch trees.
Dads who coach, dads who step in to help when other dads can't make it. Last night I was so relieved to have dads cover for Mr. D during the boys' coach pitch game. I've got no business out on the diamond, give me a spot in the dugout with the book and the batting order--I can handle that job!
Watching Mr. T at lunch, chattering away with his new classmates at his new school. His grades are solid, his confidence is up, his overall attitude much more positive. We made the right choice sending him to the parochial school.
Dan, our handyman, who will soon have a kennel for Jax outside, and a BIG surprise for our boys! (In addition to fixing closet doors and balancing ceiling fans.)
Almost 12 hours of daylight--bliss!
Fresh paint. (I'll have a REVEAL next week--been super busy with paint.)
Learning escrimas in karate class and finding them easy.
Spill it, reader. What's making your thankful list today?
