Today I am grateful for

+ my garden which is starting to produce veggies as well as flowers

+ William who has given me lots of flowers to plant in the Village

+ my sister whom I don't see often enough

+ finally finding fish I enjoy

+ puppies - although I am stiffening my resistance muscle.

Thanks, Ruthxx, for getting us started!

- a GREAT food day... until about 10:00 pm, when I ate extra. I am grateful for the willingness to make it a healthy day, mostly.

- DH is almost done with the stepping stones - they look great and are nice to look at too.

- rained all night.. we needed it (the flowers are 'smiling' this morning - the farmers too.

- friends, family, YOU ALL, fb, music, cell phone, internet

- interesting containers with little sedum growing bring me such pleasure.

I am grateful for the hard things I have gone through that taught me just how strong and determined I am. I am grateful for the people in my life. I am really grateful this bad haircut is not shorter and more chopped up than it could be:-)

- a healthy food day Saturday - so grateful for that

- DH replanted the garden bed that we totally took out to work on the overgrown weeds. It looks nice!

- neighbors and little children came over for a campfire & smores. We told campfire stories - I told some not scary ghost stories. Then they made up their own. Fun stuff!

- I planned to eat one s'more and that is what I ate. Grateful for that and the willingness to send the ingredients home with one family

- loving the new garden paths

- family, friends, YOU ALL, fb, internet, cell, music

- used cherry wood in the campfire... I smell like a sweet smoked ham. LOL Love the smell of a campfire.

+ once again glad of a rainy day when I can just chill a bit

+ breakfast at the Diner with Jane and Hal - we seldom get one on one time

+ four loads of laundry washed dried, folded and put away

+ survived the trauma of buying a bathing suit yesterday

+ got the financial report done for my quilters' meeting in record time which will ease Monday's morning stress

+ bought a dessert for tonight's Girls' Dinner without having to make one this afternoon

+ a rainy afternoon is great for a quick nap

- finally, a really all around healthy day- I am grateful

- Mike said Alex 'read' him a book last night. He said that even though most of it was from memory.... it was so joyful.

- glad Mimi gave permission to cut down the one tree that totally shaded our veggie garden. It was all broken and misshapen from a snow storm a few years ago and kept saying she wanted to take it down. She was grateful, actually.

- friends, family, YOU ALL, fb, internet, cell, music

- my online friends from around the world

- tomatos and peppers planted
