Moments and Thankfulness
It's been a quiet week full of rainy dreary days. Early mornings (5 a.m.) I'm serenaded by the birds mostly robins, sometimes a woodpecker, rain and thunder. I pause and listen enjoying that moment before my day begins.
The days have been quiet now that we are two. I'm focusing on knitting my various projects, planning some fall knitting classes and joyfully glancing at the cleared off coffee table. That will never get old. Menu planning became easy this week-we ate through the leftovers. Gone is the l-o-n-g list of snacks and foods to buy. We keep it simple when it's just two. Salads for lunch every day. In a few weeks we will be harvesting our own lettuce and spinach.
I am thankful for:
-avocados-can't stop eating them.
-family-how days, weeks can pass by, yet you pick up where you left off when you last saw them
-phone calls from kids-it's nice to know they are happy and they want to call us :)
-being two of us-we are once again enjoying being together planning outings
-vertical blinds-we close them so Frodo cannot see the rabbits.
-ripping out knitting-found a mistake and joyfully ripped because that is better than finding the mistake after the project is blocked
-puzzles-jigsaw, crossword, cryptoquip, sudoku you name them I'm addicted
-dvrs-we are catching up on all the saved episodes of various shows
-everyone's comments on my post on Wednesday about the unloved semicolon.
-quiet mornings, coffee with sugar no cream, snippets of songs in my mind on repeat, chocolate anything.
What are you thankful for?
have a lovely weekend!
