One Thousand Gifts

This has been a hard week or so. Lots of stress at work, down with a cold over the weekend, and it's planting season. And now someone turned on the sauna and it feels like mid-July.

This late evening shot of some weeds by the big old maples that line the ditch makes me happy. Right now, I'm grabbing the "happy" where I can find it.

76. our girl, home for the weekend, part of the family again

77. white baseboards (whodathunkit--me, a wood lover, with painted baseboards)

78. the baking skills of my mother and my mother in law

79. a hug and a prayer from mom--never too old to need a mother's love

80. the retreat of a cool basement

81. chocolate

82. strong coffee with cream and sugar

83. big old maples that line the ditch

  2. Yay! Keep grabbing. You can do this.

    Enjoyed stopping by your blog.



  3. Oh, I love those trees! And I share so many of your thank-yous! :) It's gotten very hot here too - hang in there!

  4. I'm with you on the chocolate and the strong coffe with cream!! I really enjoy reading your blog, as I would love to live on a farm, but right now I'm living in the city. But I still spin, weave, knit and homeschool my son and dream about being out in the country one day. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
