I am grateful for laundromats. They are just the thing when your washer is in a state of warranty purgatory, and you have a family of 4, and you want to get a week’s worth of laundry washed in an hour or so. Also: grateful for the sun and a clothesline, making the drying part after we take home buckets of clean wet laundry easier.
I am grateful for Coop and Farl, who are helpful assets with all this laundry business.
I am grateful for a bunch of crappy canvases and craft acrylic paint we had around, so we could spend part of the afternoon painting together. In situations like this I try to do something I’m not used to painting so I asked what kind of animal I should paint. “Plankton!” was his reply, so I painted plankton.
I am grateful for dinner together this evening.
I am grateful for time spent with Julie in the hillbilly hot tub this evening.
I am grateful for time spent kayaking this afternoon with my family. Julie came kayaking too, along with the lads, and it was great. It was a quick outing, we went from Willows Beach to Mary Todd Island.
I am grateful for a feast we had when we got home. Lots of bounty in seasonal produce this time of year.
I am grateful for time spent with my lads at bedtime, listening to an episode of the Story Pirates podcast.
I am grateful for some success in the art biz today.
I am grateful for lunch with my old pal Judd, or as autocorrect likes to refer to him, Judder.
I am grateful for Family Fun Night: Farley’s pick. We went for dinner at Fish on Fifth in Sidney, and then for mini golf. There were times where it perhaps could have been referred to as Family Frustration Night, as such is the nature of Golf in all formats, including mini, but we all had fun, too.
I am grateful for a more peaceful than anticipated time at the laundromat with my family. Our machine is busted and awaiting repair or replacement under warranty, and I thought it’d be nightmarish, but everyone, kids included, chipped in and chilled out.
I am grateful for a takeout sushi early dinner picnic on top of Mount Tolmie.
