Thankful Thursdays

This Thursday I am thankful for:

  • A break in the humidity and temperatures below 80 - lovely.
  • Being brave enough to try a new recipe - even if it was essentially a failure.
  • Salami and cream cheese rolls - the perfect salty, cheesy snack.
  • Two Tupperware pitchers in the fridge filled with fruit punch and pink lemonade.
  • Having a few quiet nights with Andy - life always seems a bit too crazy for quiet.
  • Green birds on my yellow kitchen walls.
  • Bright eyes and bedhead on a toddler.
  • Addison choosing PBS over the Disney Channel.
  • A new dish soap dispenser - at last that huge bottle of Dawn can be hidden under the sink.
  • My week and half reading the Hunger Games trilogy. Writing for teens that resonates with adults is hard to find, and these books are fabulous.
  • Listening to Addison make believe - her imagination is endless and a bit hysterical.
  • Completing Addison's second year scrapbook.
  • Having a dishwasher that is no longer a safety hazard.
  • Fresh flowers on the kitchen table.
  • A Friday night with no plans.

I just cannot believe how much older she looks with her new haircut. Put some bricks on her head or something to make her quit growing so fast!

80 degree weather and a completed scrapbook? I'd be super grateful too.

(Who am I kidding? I'd be grateful if I could just find the time to get photographs printed.)
