I am grateful for a warm day.
I am grateful for a trip to Home Depot, and the euphoria that comes with the stage of a project that consists of wandering the aisles and actually seeing and handling the materials one might use to turn a vision into a reality, even if that reality is something as mundane as a new cover to keep raccoons out of the pond.
I am grateful for an afternoon and evening in the backyard, eating streak and asparagus, and making up cocktails with rum, grapefruit juice, and carbonated water.
I am grateful for euphoric kids jumping on the trampoline with the sprinkler on underneath.
I am grateful for pavlova Julie made tonight. It turned out very well.
