Thankful Thursday ~ November 1st

I am thankful for the rain.   I loved having so much sun in September and most of October (we had something like 82 days of sunshine.  I’m sure that is some kind of record for us here in the rainy part of the Pacific Northwest.)  The grass that was all brown and dead looking is now starting to become green again. 

I am thankful that my husband has been off work for most of this week.  I wasn’t thrilled at first when he announced “oh I forgot to tell you. I have some use or lose leave so I’m taking off next week.”   But it has been a blessing.  We were able to get some errands done and he’s been around to help me through a difficult personal crisis.  And he makes the bestest scrambled eggs in the whole world and he made scrambled eggs for me this week.

I am thankful for the creativity of my daughters.  I’m thankful for the relationship that they have with each other.  Yes, they fight.  Yes, the fighting drives me crazy but when it matters they willingly step up and work together.  The three “big girls” worked together to create costumes for all four of them and they all went out trick or treating together last night.   The three big girls did not want to be greedy for candy (it was really about getting to go walk through the neighborhood than about the candy) so they had one bag for candy.  Supergirl had her own bucket.

And finally this week I am thankful for Costco and frozen lasagnas that can be cooked from frozen!  Made our monthly shopping trip to Costco and came home with dinner:  Lasagna, a salad, and some specialty bread.

What are you thankful for this week?
