I am grateful for a very focussed day of working on the trailer. It now has painted plywood walls on the interior, and 2 interior lights. Looking forward to getting beds in tomorrow!

I am grateful for family fun night: Farley’s pick. We dined on a&w, and then watched a good part of an old hockey game on YouTube. I may have had a snooze.

I am grateful for time spent watching a mama deer and her fawn in our front yard when Farley and I left to go to school this morning.

I am grateful for time spent with Coop and his Scout troop this evening. We went for a walk in Mystic Vale.

I am grateful for all the urban wildlife. In addition to the deer this morning, I spotted a rabbit, a couple of bald eagles, ravens, and lizards, all in our neighbourhood, and on our walk tonight, a parliament of 3 barred owls.

I am.grateful for helpful folks who coordinate art shows, and put up with pestering from this artist, who has to swap pieces out from time to time.

I am grateful for takeout from Ithaka this evening, which is about the best Greek food you can get here in Victoria, imho.

I am grateful for Farley’s baseball game. Cooper did announcements and ran the scoreboard. Farley ran in 2 runs and had some great plays on the infield. We ran into and visited with neighbours. It was a spectacular social event, after a dearth of social events.

I am grateful for family fun. Night part 2: Julie’s pick. We made nachos for dinner, then played a little bit of Myst, wherein we had a breakthrough and made it to a new, cool world.

I am grateful for a strong relationship between my kids. They each drive each other nuts sometimes, but they really enjoy each other, too, and they usually figure out their differences and how to get along and move forward. It’s wonderful to watch and be a part of.

I am grateful for all kinds of progress on my trailer. It’s getting close to finished. Better be, because I want to go camping in it soon!

I am grateful for time spent watching telly with Julie this evening.

I am grateful for some great steps forward on the trailer project. I applied seam tape and special RV roof paint to it today. Now, I don’t have to worry as much about what might happen if it rains.
