Gratitude

I am grateful for a good sleep and a late morning.

I am grateful for family fun night part 2, my pick: we rejoggered our projector and screen to work better with an earlier reposition of the couch, and then screened The Walk, about the guy who did the unsanctioned tightrope walk between the towers of the World Trade Center in New York in the 70s. It was a good story.

I am grateful as all heck for our projector. It’s not a particularly fancy one, but it softens the blow of the pandemic just a bit.

I am grateful for time.spent working on my trailer project today.

I am grateful for our cleaners. Our home is so nice after they come.

I am grateful for family fun night: my pick: first we cleaned the interior of our van. There was some debate if it counted as fun, but I thought it did. Then we had takeout from a Chinese restaurant, then we screened 42, the biopic about Jackie Robinson starring Chadwick Bozeman. It was all great, especial the film.

Gratitude

I am grateful for a fairly relaxed day, particularly since yesterday was a bit more hectic than I would have liked.

I am grateful for an appointment to get vaccinated for Covid. It has been a long journey, and it’s not over, but this feels like a pivotal moment towards normalcy.

I am grateful for dinner together.

I am grateful for Cooper’s Scout meeting. They made driftwood forts on the beach. It’s a nice group of kids, and it’s fun to watch them work together so well.

Gratitude

I am grateful for time spent on my trailer project today. I got underneath it, did my best to get the dust off, and repainted all the metal bits black in an effort to inhibit corrosion while it’s so light.

I am grateful for time spent with my lads listening to a podcast about Thomas Jefferson at bedtime.

I am grateful for time spent watching telly with Julie. We just finished The Lady and the Dale, an HBO documentary about the personality behind an ill fated 3 wheeled car, and we both really enjoyed it.

Gratitude

I am grateful for time.soent chatting with old friends on Zoom this morning, like I have every Sunday morning pretty much since the pandemic began.

I am grateful for a quick trip with Farley and his remote control motorboat to the model boat pond on Dallas Road. It’s been a while since he had that thing out, it was a really fun thing to do with that fella.

I am grateful for the opportunity to get some.yardwork done in nice weather.

I am grateful for fried chicken for supper.

I am grateful for time spent with friends batting around a badminton birdie, throwing a frisbee, and playing cornhole.

I am grateful for Farley’s new baseball bat. He got to use it at practise today.

I am grateful for time.soent with Cooper, he came with me while I did a few errands today.

I am grateful for family fun night, Cooper’s pick part 2: Coop requested I make burgers for dinner, and then we finished the second half of the 4 hour director’s cut of the Justice League movie. I am surprised to say so, but I enjoyed watching it more than I thought I would.

Gratitude

I am grateful for the opportunity to present a.pai ring demonstration to the Nanaimo Group of Artists via zoom. It was a fun experience.

I am grateful for a trip to the dump..I think it might be the last of trailer stuff, there isn’t really anything else to pull off of it. I am looking forward to building it up now.

I am grateful for Cooper’s family fun night. We had chicken burgers from the Tartan Toque and watched the first half of the 4 hour director’s cut of the Justice League movie.

I am grateful for time spent with Farley and Coop settling down for bed tonight.

Gratitude

I am grateful for a productive day working on the trailer. I didn’t do much else.

I am grateful for enthusiastic acceptance of a weird dinner I made out of ingredients I had around that needed to get used up. I had my doubts anyone in my family would like any of it, but for whatever reason, perhaps just hunger, they all liked it t enough.

I am grateful for Julie, who took care of the evening shift with the kiddos. I am the morning shift guy typically, and by the time dinner was done, I was pooped.

I am grateful for time spent watching telly with Julie after the kids were down. We just started The Lady and the Dale. It looks promising; I’ll let you know how it goes.

Gratitude

I am grateful for good weather today.

I am grateful for my new lawn mower. It’s way better than my old manual one. I am not much of one for mowing lawns, I do it begrudgingly. Still, there’s less to begrudge with the new mower. I might not ever get to a begrudge factor of zero; I am applying a begrudging reduction model with the new mower.

I am grateful for dinner together with my family tonight, like we do pretty much every night.
