I am grateful for those free bikes I found a while back. I have been enjoying getting one fixed up; removing bits from the other that had the wheels stolen. Bikes are very simple machines. Getting them running smoothly is like chopping wood. You are immediately rewarded for a small amount of effort.
I am grateful for sunny days. It’s been nice and warm out this last week. I come from the prairies, and don’t take weather like that for granted.
I am grateful for Beavers “under the sea” movie night. After decorating the hall with fishy drawings and a scavenger hunt on the beach, they all watched Finding Nemo while eating popcorn with the lights off. Coop had a great time, and so did Farley, who was snuggled up on my lap for the whole movie. If that’s not nice, what is?
