Glad for our long weekend in ID. for the time spent with our wonderful family and especially for the play time David was able to squeeze in. Normally it's all work and no fun for him, so he can get a lot of things, you know big-guy stuff accomplished while we are at his moms small ranch.
Thankful for the time I spent with my parents and secretly eavesdropping on the happy sounds of my Dad and Annabelle playing house together...
Remembering the sweetness of Annabelle in my mom's garden, which is a glorious profusion of color right now, as she has hundreds of zinnias in bloom, in every imaginable color and size, girlykins was like a little butterfly flitting from one plant to the next, picking cherry tomatoes and sweet baby bell peppers and sharing her spoils with everyone, first she would test taste each one by taking a little bite herself, and then pass them out.
Grinning every time Annabelle says hosi-pi-tal instead of hospital which for some reason she manages to use at least twice a day.
Looking forward to our upcoming weekend at the coast...we are renting in this beautiful house along with a whole bunch of David's family.
In the middle of projects galore. And keeping secrets. Really fun ones too.
Playing hide-and-go-seek with Anniebelle
Picking bowl after bowl of blackberries
Hearing her to refer to David almost always as " my Daddy " and let me tell you, it melts me.
Listening to this over and over
So very bummed that there are no pictures to share this weekend in ID. as there was a small tragedy and our camera has been accidentally ruined...it's a long story involving a leak-y paper coke cup ( one from the Costco Food court to be exact ) did you know that those things if they sit to long leak out the bottom? Now I do. And it very much appears to be not fixable as I was told that water damage is not covered under the warranty.
Thrilled about my new haircut. Thanks Min...and even though I have been known to say this before but I think you are amazing. I'd take a picture, if I could.
Thankful for David's discovery of Hagen Daz, Coconut Pineapple ice cream. ohhh, it's by far my new favorite treat ever.
Watching Annabelle "do gymnastics." It's a cute and hilarious site. Note to self: must take a video of this soon.
Praying so much for several really good friends
Longing to celebrate the little joys that come along with my simple, everyday life, to revel in the beauty and blessing that it is to be a wife and a mother, to be thankful that I have a little nest to fluff and a little chick to nurture and love and a man who works so hard for us and comes home, filthy dirty from head to toe but with a great big smile on his handsome face.
Happy. Really, really happy.
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
