Thankful Thursday

This Thursday I am thankful for:

No longer being sick. Last week sucked, my whole body ached and I felt like I had been hit by car, but this week is so very much better.

My new necklace - it is a lovely piece of white yarn adorned with beads and foam hearts and it was meticulously made by loving toddler hands.

Two days of glorious weather - 65 yesterday and 69 today. Sure, it might be a little bit of global warming, but it feels so very fabulous and is beyond appreciated.

Taking advantage of the nicer temps to refill the very neglected bird feeders - the house finches seem awfully thankful too.

Addie's babysitter, Kelsey. Addie absolutely adores having Kelsey watch her and often asks Andy and I to "go somewhere" so that she can have a "Kelsey date". On Valentines Day Kels dropped off bag filled to the brim of treats for Addie - all of which we plan on feeding the kiddo 45 minutes before Kelsey babysits the next time.

Promises of burgers and brats on the grill for dinner February!

Frish's iced tea - it is brewed perfectly and served over crushed ice with a lemon. It is the perfect midday pick me up and tasted great on my little girl lunch date yesterday.

Goat cheese and sundried tomato pesto stuffed chicken, parboiled asparagus and salad with balsamic parmesean dressing for a Valentines dinner - along with lovely conversation and a glass of wine with my husband.

The arrival of Gramma Kathy tomorrow morning! She'll be here for a week and we've got big plans. Gramma is going to be the helper at school next week, Addie starts her next round of gymnastics and Andy and I are going on a date or two - fabulous!

Kelsey will be happy to know you plan to give Addie a ton of candy before she arrives...that way Addie will stay up longer. The longer she stays up the longer the two of them have to play with each other. :)

I am very jealous of your weather.
