"Reflect Each Day On All You Have To Be Grateful For And You Will Receive More To Be Grateful For." -Chuck Danes
Howdy to you my blogging friends! I'm late getting this post up, because I've been running around like a maniac all day!!
If you're here for Wednesday Gratitude, Linky is below. Welcome, and please be sure to link back to Heart and Home in your Gratitude post.
Right now I'm feeling grateful for the nice cup of hot tea I had about an hour ago, sitting outside under the redwoods at a neighborhood coffee shop with daughter #1.
I've been to the dentist and need to schedule an appointment for a root canal.
You can imagine how this thrills me.
After the dentist we went shopping for dorm necessities for the fall.
We like to get a head start on things like that.
But, I will not lie, it was exhausting!
Making the right choices, and filling our cart with stuff she might or might not need starting making my head hurt!
I'm thankful for the 90 day return policy at Tar-jay.
Shopping is one of my favorite pastimes, but for some reason today, after starting out early running to art lessons for daughter #2, and Costco, and home, and one hour back and forth to the dentist, and then shopping, all the while fitting in phone calls, and filling out forms on the computer, and getting stuck in traffic.....
I'm feeling particularly grateful for the prospect of a calm morning tomorrow (and maybe even part of the afternoon!) spent out here, on the deck. Enjoying the Summer break.
You'll find me in my favorite spot, with another cup of tea and a stack of magazines and my new book "San Francisco Style", which was published some time ago and I was lucky to find on sale for $5 at the book store.
That aforementioned cup of tea, that one I had an hour ago, revived me just enough to get us home and the car unloaded.
Now, I can take a deep breath, and enjoy the warm late afternoon sun and the lovely view from the wicker settee.
Because this morning at Costco I picked up a delicious looking Margherita pizza, and all I have to do tonight is pop it into the oven and make a salad - ta-da - dinner.
I'm really feeling grateful for that pizza, and for having planned ahead.
Some days are like this, there's no way around it.
I'm grateful for being able to see a dentist when I need one, and to shop for stuff, and for a family that will not mind one bit that dinner tonight is not the usual home-cooked affair.
I'm grateful that we'll all sit down together and enjoy our pizza with tomatoes and basil and mozzarella and pine nuts, and that tomorrow is another day, and I get to do it all over again.
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know you were here - leave a comment!
And come back again soon.
Until next time,
Linking up to Outdoor Wednesday, at Susan's A Southern Daydreamer! And Works for Me Wednesday, at We are that Family.
