I woke up early this morning. Six o'clock. On a day off. That's ok. Somehow when you know you can get a nap later if need be, and you're off, it's just fine. Fed the animals, made the coffee, went out to the back porch for a sit.
After a while, the sky turned blue. The clouds drifted by lazily.
I made Isaac come out and sit with me. He didn't want to, but he is a patient soul. Actually, he didn't sit. He mostly stood without complaint and looked at me out of the corners of his eyes.
From the steps where I sat, I could see the cellar door that Mister had just repaired and painted to match the house.
I walked down into the yard to admire my railing-in-progress project and thought about trying to finish it today.
The sky got brighter and brighter, promising a beautiful new day.
I felt very grateful, and decided that I WOULD post on my blog today. After all, Mister was still sleeping, the dog went back to bed, and I was thankful for my blessings.
I checked my blog and saw that prayer requests of other bloggers were being answered.
I grew ever more grateful. Joyful, even. So I posted.
Have a wonderful weekend, all of you! I am grateful for every one of you. Thank you for enjoying and sharing the simple pleasures and joys of life with me. Thank you for sharing yourselves!
Kitchen remodel update follows:
All the cabinets are in, as is under cabinet lighting. See the farmhouse sink?
The fridge is now built in. We kept the fridge, and Mister had the most brilliant idea to put in a bookcase and cabinets around it.
Let's hear it for Mister!!
Please joing Laurie today for A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday!!! Thanks for hosting, Laurie!
