Outside my window … the skies are still dark as I type this, but the weatherman tells me that today and tomorrow are supposed to be really lovely and sunny. (And we’ll just pretend that the dire predictions for the rest of the week after that didn’t happen, okay?)
I am thinking … that there are now just 9 weekends left in 2014 and we have plans for 8 of them. They are good plans, fun plans, but that thought still leaves me a little bit shocked (and committed to enjoy the down time and quiet moments whenever I can).
I am thankful … for my sweet kids. When I told them that our local arts center had been vandalized (mums pulled up, pumpkins smashed) they were eager to help and to spend some time cleaning up and painting new pumpkins. Max even volunteered to go on a stake out to catch the bad guys, ha ha! I’m so thankful for their big hearts.
And, I’m also thankful for friends who see a need in our community and rise up to meet it and to Piney Acres Farm for donating the pumpkins.
There are some good people in this small town and I’m really glad we call it home.
