Greetings friends, How are you this wonderful Thursday? It is a beautiful day here and started out with cool breezes which made our walking very pleasant this morning. Right now it is a warm 82.8 degrees with highs predicted to be in the high 90's today; we've turned on our a/c early because we have friends coming for dinner later today and we want to the house to be cool. Usually I don't turn it on until the late afternoon but today we decided earlier is better. So I am thankful that we have a/c; this is the first home we've ever had it in and our ceiling fan in our master bedroom seems to be having issues-actually we think the motor is getting really tired. In lieu of that, a/c comes in really handy because I don't think I could sleep without some sort of cool air blowing. I am thankful we live in the area we do and for each day. I am thankful that I see a hint of fall in the plants and feel it in the air. I am thankful for our dear friends who first grandchild is due next week, a little boy. What fun they will have; I'm thankful for the internet so that they can send up photos since we aren't there. I am thankful that I can clean wood floors with vinegar and water and not fuss with expensive cleaners. I am thankful I get to get a hair cut/color done today-it always makes me feel good. I am so excited and thankful that we are meeting some friends for dinner Sat. that we knew when we had young children and haven't seen in 27 yrs; they moved to Colorado and live about an hour from us and this is the first time we've managed to get a date on the calendar. We've got a lot of catching up to do.
Have a day filled with gratitude-for the little as well as the big things.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 37 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 38 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
