I am grateful for a lazy morning.

I am grateful for time spent with Farley today, out in the world getting errands done. He’s got some mad skills these days. That kid can handle a cart at Costco better than anyone else there, for example.

I am grateful for a night out with Julie. We saw Ad Astra. It was slow, and a little lacking in some ways, but I sure enjoyed it.

I am grateful for the pancakes Farley made nearly all by himself this morning.

I am grateful for a day of painting at the studio.

I am grateful for family fun night: Cooper’s pick. We went out for Korean BBQ, then watched Avengers Endgame at home. It was delicious, then low key, and just right, IMHO.

Gratitude

I am grateful for a whole dang day in the studio. WHOLE DANG DAY.

I am grateful for Julie, who brought me lunch.

I am grateful for the program at Cooper’s scout group, which is pretty near all organized by the youth within it.

I am grateful for time spent painting at the studio today.

I am grateful for lunch with Julie. We went a restaurant we’d never been to before. This is high adventure for us, and it was tasty and fun.

I am grateful for a fine evening on the water in kayaks at Farley’s Cub meeting.

I am grateful for a lazy Saturday morning.

I am grateful for a phone conversation with my brother.

I am grateful for carpooling. We saved some time and gas today with a neighbour who had a kid at the same birthday party Farley attended way out on the peninsula today, so we each did one trip instead of two.

I am grateful for the wherewithal to get new rain gear for everyone in our family today. I am grateful for the rain that’s been declaring in no uncertain terms that summer is over.

I am grateful for some time spent standing in that rain with neighbours and friends at a block party this evening after supper.

I am grateful for an episode of Law and Order on DVD that Julie and I enjoyed this evening.

Gratitude

I am grateful for a fine time painting in the studio today. Right now I am working on a big canvas, the biggest I have ever painted. It’s 48×72″. Painting big is fun.

I am grateful for lunch with Julie today.

I am grateful for time with my lads this evening in the back yard and hill billy hot tub.

Gratitude

I am grateful for 2 rare perfect shopping finds – a new bike helmet that is comfortable, and a pair of shoes for Coop that looked good, were deeply on sale, and turned out to cut the mustard for him. SCORE!

I am grateful for time at the studio.

I am grateful for Farley’s first cub meeting where he’s a cub. Truth is, he’s been going to cub meetings of Cooper’s for 3 years now, but now he’s in the uniform, and he got to do the grand howl at the end, and seemed pretty pleased about it.
