I can't exactly say I'm thankful for that, but at the same time, I do look forward to the return of a regular routine. And, quite frankly, this summer has dragged a little, so I'm grateful there will be a little more going on again soon.
I'm thankful for the little getaway and successful shopping trip the girls and I had in The Big City last week and our safe travels there and back.
grateful for the visit we had this week with The Man's parents, who came up and camped on our yard again for a few days like they generally do right before the Labour Day weekend. It was fun to have them here and it came in handy for The Man to have an extra worker around the shop exactly this week to put up chain-link fence.
thankful my girls have the relationship they do with both sets of grandparents. Both The Man and I have fond growing-up memories of our grandparents, but both of us come from significantly larger extended families so we never got the kind of one-on-one time our girls get with their grandmas and grandpas. And I can't imagine that either of our grandparents would have crafted with us or taken us to the local playgrounds the way our parents do with our girls! It's just so great to see.
I'm grateful August worked out the way it did. The only week The Man spent living in the semi-truck was exactly the week that the girls and I were in the city, so the timing was perfect. It's been good having him home most evenings again for a change. Next month, we'll return to being a regular trucker's family and hardly seeing him again, but at least we had this month.
thankful the weather has been so great the last month and a half, too. We've really only had two or three real rainfalls since the end of June and it's been good and hot most of the time. Perfect.
I'm grateful for corn on the cob!! Mmmm, delicious, sweet, juicy corn! I'm not a gardener and we really wouldn't need to have a real garden as far as I'm concerned, but I think I'd still always want to grow a small patch of corn. And a zucchini plant. And a tomato plant or two. :) I do love the fresh eating we can do this time of year!!
