Gratitude

I am grateful for a fantastic Halloween. At 9 and 6, my kids are fully committed, and at the right age to run into a bunch of pals to make for a bigger and bigger group of costumed characters as they roam up and down the neighbourhood. They are young enough, too, that their parents are all walking with them, which means I get to know my neighbours better, too.

I am grateful for time in the studio this morning.

I am grateful for a fun night for Coop and Farl at Cubs tonight. It was a bit hectic for us scouters, what with the pumpkins and the children with the knives and the matches and the candles and the faucet left on in the bathroom that led to the water in the floor. In the end though, Coop got home and decreed it was the best meeting ever; so there’s that.

I am grateful for an afternoon with Farley. Circumstances led to us having that time together. We got some errands done and went out to lunch. It was nice.

I am grateful for a shiny new Vitamix blender. We’ve been thinking about getting one for years. That thing is fantastic.

I am grateful for a walk around Durrance Lake this morning. I woke up early and caught the sunrise.

I am grateful for potatoes, oil, salt, and pepper, because that’s all you need to make hash browns, like I did for myself and the lads this morning; along with fried eggs, and tomatoes from our garden.

I am grateful for a fun afternoon and evening at Bamberton with another family. Kids ran rampant through the woods, we sat by a campfire, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, and even got into campfire songs. Good times!

I am grateful for physiotherapy.

I am grateful for good advice from someone I know, like, and trust.

I am grateful for family fun night: Farleys pick. We took the lads to Wildplay, a rope and obstacle course based activity in Langford, then Costco for a few supplies and dinner. 

We topped it all off with a neighbourly middle of the street chit chat while the 6 year old set ran around like they do, and then some stories before bed. If that’s not nice, what is?
