This week I'm Thankful for:
Typically we tend to go right from winter to the heat of summer. & vice versa. This year, we actually got a taste of Spring. We've had some of the most beautiful days... & the mornings & evenings are just perfection. I know Summer starts in a few days & our forecast is showing the humidity coming... so it really makes me look back & actually see we finally got a good season this year.
This little horse - my goodness - she is just PRECIOUS. Like, if you met her, you would just fall in love precious. She's like a big dog.... when she sees me, I'll stretch out my arms to her like I do for my dogs to run to me - & she comes right up to me & lets me hug her & kiss her face. I asked Ricky if we can find a doggie door big enough to fit in our back door & then bring her to our back yard.

OK - if I'm going to talk about a sweet horse, I'm going to talk about my sweet boys too. They are just attention needy every single minute of the day ... & I love it. This pic below is where I was reading & Ernie plopped right up on the lounge chair & sits in between my legs until I pet him... & Harvey came on the side & he takes his nose & will FLING your hand up to pat him. If you stop - that nose comes out & FLING again. & again. & again. They bring so much happiness in my life.
I now have to make bank deposits for work - I used to have someone pick them up but with more people coming into the office, they werent able to drive out any longer. I get to sign off a half hour early & head to the bank & its like an adventure. It's weird actually leaving my house on a weekday. Or any day really.
|Look at me driving... on a Wednesday!|
Still no make up though & tees & shorts.
I'll be a mess getting back to work in the office
We're coming up on it - the longest day of the year.... & I have been loving all the light. Sun rising at 6am & it still being light out after 9? I needed this little bit of soul happiness in this crazy time. I always said if all the world chaos was happening during winter when its dark at 5:30?.... I'm pretty sure I would have just had a mental breakdown by now. I'm pretty bummed that after Saturday, we start LOSING sunlight every day... but I'll just be grateful for the light we've had.
When Sydney passed away, I was just so sad because she was my porch buddy. She would come out with me & sit & stay on the porch & never jump off - watch the birds, listen to the noises, keep an eye out on any cars that come down the road.... she loved being out there. When she passed away, I thought, I'll never go on the front porch to read again.... well, it just must be an Aussie thing because these 2 boys love going out there & hanging out with me too. They'll go out & see if we're walking out in the yard or staying on the porch & if I say "Stay up here" - they get on the porch & find their spot & stick near me while I rock & read. HOURS out there... & they stick on the porch. I have some porch buddies again.
Yep - still thankful for it. ... I thought it was cool - Ricky was out at lunch, standing in line at a fast food restaurant & he said he was the only one in line wearing one. But up ahead of him, a guy in scrubs had just gotten his order & was leaving. He saw Ricky & came over to him & said, "Hey, thank you for wearing your mask".... & left. Ricky said people sort of huffed about it around him, but again I'll say, when health are workers wear them - & this one even thanked Ricky for wearing one - it matters. It really matters.
What's something good in your world this week?
