Hi welcome to the last FFF of August. I can't believe that it's already here. I know the calendar still has 3 weeks of summer but in my mind September 1 marks the beginning of fall for me and the end of our summer. Time to look back on the blessings in my life over the last week.
~ laughter ~ I have been thankful for those moments of laughter that show up in my days. With all the stress, anger and rage that has swirled around us in this world these last months those gifts of laughter have really been appreciated. The belly laughter of little ones around the table when one of them did something totally unexpected. A good belly laugh with my sister at the end of a sad, stressful conversation concerning some things she is facing. Laughter with my hubby over something silly. Laughter brings hope and joy into the moment and I'm so thankful for it.
~ king tut is alive and well ~ Well, my plant King Tut is anyway. It is not only alive but it is thriving and is massive. Some of it's "blooms" are bigger than my head. It makes me happy whenever I see it in the front of my house and now it's gotten so big I can actually see it peeking in the living room window from inside.
~ blue skies ~ We've had some gorgeous blue skies the last days that have bought much pleasure both to me looking and to the kids as they enjoy the sunshine outdoors. We've had another heat wave the last weeks and this week though the days have been hot the nights are finally starting to cool right off.
~ produce gift ~ I was given a gift of a big bag of just picked yellow wax beans by one of my dayhome parents. I grew up eating yellow wax beans so love them. I promptly made a pot of a Hungarian dish my mom used to make every summer. I don't even know how to translate it: but it's delicious and creamy, not a soup and not a stew. I'll post a recipe later this week. It's so easy.
~ to do lists getting accomplished ~ I've had so many to do lists lately and I'm finally starting to see the items getting crossed off.
What have been the blessings in your week?
