Today I am thankful for...
~the first snow day! Only about two inches, but that doesn't matter. It was enough to delight and entertain - the little babe, the dogs, and me. (The chickens, not so much.)
~relief from a mysterious back pain. It may have come from wrestling with a 60 pound futon mattress in our Airbnb rental, or from hiking with the 35 pound (little) babe on my back every day, or from many other not very exciting reasons, but it was painful enough to keep me up at night and to break out the rarely used expired bottle of Tylenol from the depths of the medicine cabinet. And then as suddenly as it appeared, it seems to have gone.
~a lovely day with family talking about wedding plans, trying on my bridesmaid dress, and seeing the little babe twirl in several fancy frilly flower girl frocks. I think both she and I were in satin and sequin shock, but it was for a good cause - Malley, we love you and are very excited!
~my industrious little red hens who are providing us with two or three eggs per day! And for the fact that big bad Buffy has taken a little break from her egg pecking habit.
What are you thankful for today?
