I have gratitude for weekends. Especially this weekend. For me, the weekend starts on Friday. I wake up at the same time every day, but it’s easier to get out of bed on a Friday. For some reason, I had a little extra time this Friday. I spent the hour at the public library, looking at the books. I picked 3 books to take home. (I hope I have time to read them all in the next 14 days!) I also cleaned out and organized my clothes. I tossed clothes from 10 pounds ago, clothes that were looking old, or clothes I just didn’t like anymore. The closet and drawers are now easy to open and I can find what I need.
Friday night we went to see the new Star Trek movie with friends. Apparently, I haven’t been to the movies for a Long time. Reclining seats in a movie theater? Those seats were more comfortable than being at home. I’m grateful I didn’t fall asleep!
I’m grateful for Saturday and the ability to do errands, grocery shop and clean my house. I have a car to easily get to the places I need to go and a roof over my head. I have a kitchen with running water and a washer and dryer to keep my clothes clean.
I had time to make soap. I’ve been having some fun playing around with a lace silicon mat my dad and I made. I haven’t perfected the technique yet, but I will.
Sunday though, was the best!
My son brought Luke over to my parents house and the rest of my family stopped by.
There were 6 adults in the house. Each one of us making more of a fool of ourselves than the other. It was the best competition. 🙂
Luke was passed from one set of hands to another.
He was such a good sport, he laughed and clapped his hands and cooed and it was wonderful.
Do you have gratitude for weekends? What are you grateful for this week?
Yours in Gratitude,
