Happy weekend! Hope you’re having a great one.
It’s that time again…..
I am thankful for:
**Conversations like this:
Byron- Thank you, you are my wonderful love.
Me – Only when you want something.
Byron- Yep. And I always want something. Works out pretty good, huh?
Me- You do have a point….
**This dog. Oh, he has my heart. An ordinary ride to pick something up at the store becomes OMG FUN FUN FUN!!!! when you take Bo along.
** The TV Guide app. Seriously, it’s pretty awesome. You can put in your favorite shows and it notifies you when new episodes are airing.
** Thankful for For Your Tears and my sweet friend Debby. She sent one of her handkerchiefs to my second cousin who recently lost her full-term baby son. It was very much appreciated!
** Patience. I am re-learning it. When I worked in home care before, I had to work on my patience. I am not a patient person by nature. Then when I got out of home care and worked at the hospital, everything was rush-rush-rush so the patience went out the window. Now, I’m getting back into the swing of relaxing and being patient, because the elderly tend to operate on their own time, and that time is sllllloooowwww. Or maybe even STOP. I’ll do it when I want. And that’s their prerogative.
** I’m thankful that it rained the day I planted my rosebush and salvia plants. My son gave me a gift card for Mother’s Day/my birthday to buy flowers & plants for my garden area. Perfect gift for me!
** I’m thankful that I live in Florida. I’m not bragging, just expressing gratitude- today was an amazing, perfect, beautiful day. Sunny, not a cloud in the blue sky, and the high temp was 81. It was gorgeous.
** I am thankful that we made the most of this perfect day. After I took a nap (I worked last night), Byron and I worked in the yard all day. We had so much fun, it didn’t feel like work.
** There is an old abandoned homestead in the woods near us. We know the owners. The house burned down years ago. A couple of weeks ago, Elayna and I took a walk and I saw tons of huge, beautiful miniature rose bushes blooming all over the place. So today, Byron and I went over there and dug up bunches of rose bushes, and some purple heart, and transplanted them to our yard.
** While there, we also found stepping stones made of pebbles, and two huge concrete planters. Tomorrow we’ll be pressure washing them. They are beautiful! So we beautified our yard today with no money spent – just sweat and bug bites and scratches…. (btw, we had the owner’s blessing to take anything we wanted!) I will post ‘after’ photos next week.
Aaaaaaand that’s all, folks!
