I am grateful for a day full of complicated logistics that all worked out in the end.
I am grateful for a happy customer for a recently completed commission.
I am grateful for perfect, dry, clear, still weather for Halloween tonight.
I am grateful for the guy at the thrift store I stopped at to buy the last piece of my Waldo costume who said to me, “no, I don’t have a cane, but I do have a pogo stick!”, Because you know what Cooper has been asking for repeatedly lately? A pogo stick. That’s what.
I am grateful for an evening of trick or treating in our neighbourhood with Farley, running into friends and neighbors, feeling the warmth of our community. Coop was off with his friends elsewhere, so I will treasure these next last few years.
I am grateful for a lifestyle where if what I need is a nap, that can often be arranged, because not often, but sometimes, I really do.
I am grateful for time spent with Farley and his Cub Pack. Tonight was the pumpkin carving night. It’s always a bit harrowing giving a bunch of kids knives and power drills to play with for the first time. This wasn’t our first rodeo though, and we’ve got some good rules, and everyone went home with all their appendages securely in place.
