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 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.
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.
