Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful...

  • that Amy's vacation is almost over and she will be back 'home' with us. We have missed you, Amy, more than you can imagine!

  • that I have the day off tomorrow. I need a break from my incredibly busy and insane office and Ashley needs a break from her substitute aide.

  • that Big Brother is back on TV for the summer

  • that my bathroom renovation is soon to start. Last night I met the contractor to make choices about EVERYTHING. I am so intimidated by that process that when the contractor said his wife would love to help, I readily agreed.

  • for fortune cookies. I like Chinese food but the real reason I order it is to get the fortune cookies.

  • that we have had a good amount of rain recently and my lawn is back to a beautiful shade of green.

  • that I overslept 30 minutes this morning. I know that doesn't sound like something to be thankful for, but when you need sleep as badly as I do, 30 minutes was like a beautifully wrapped gift

  • that with the hot weather, I can go barefoot a lot. I love shoes, in fact, I like them too much sometimes when I am shopping, but nothing beats walking in soft grass barefooted.

  • for Key Lime pie. Strawberry Street Cafe in Richmond, Virginia has the best I have ever tasted - and that includes the ones I had in Miami.

  • for the musical piece, Pachelbel's Canon in D major. No matter how stressful a situation I am in, it always calms me. Click below to listen for yourself.
