I am grateful for the arrival of our new dishwasher, safe and sound. The last 2 arrived damaged and had to be sent back. It’s been a long time since our last one gave up the ghost, and holy shemoly, this family can generate A LOT of dirty dishes!

I am grateful for some time spent painting this afternoon.

Well, I am grateful for an action packed weekend. And work packed. Also getting stuff around the house done packed, hanging out with kids packed, and socializing with firiends packed, too.

I am grateful for supper with my old pal Ryan and his two kiddos at our house tonight. It gets harder and harder to make new old friends, so I treasure the time I get with the ones I have.

Also, I am grateful because we BBQ’d up a storm, and ate like kings.

I am grateful for my helpful kid Coop. He helped me out with dishes this afternoon, then with a drill and woodscrews, getting deer fencing up around our garden.

I am grateful for family fun night: my pick. We played Sertlers of Catan, with a break in the middle when we hopped into the car and took I. The sunset at Saxe Point.

I am grateful for time spent painting. One great thing about this whole artist in residence business is you get to do a lot of that. Today I finished up this 16″ square painting of a sunrise at Mt. Doug beach I was lucky, and insomniac enough to catch a few weeks ago.

I am grateful for time spent eating pizza and watching Star Trek: the Next Generation with Coop and Farl tonight. TGIF!
