Today we give thanks.
I am grateful for my husband, our home, and our family that chooses to be in our lives.
I am grateful to our close friends.
As you get older you will notice your inner circle gets smaller but those in it are more special than ever.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone please stay safe on the roads and have a great weekend.
Yesterday we spent the day with our youngest daughter and her family.
The kids swam in a big pool we bought them screaming like crazy playing sharks, crabs, and dolphins. The baby swam in a plastic tub so he did not get overtaken by the 3 wild sharks.
Our son in law David spent 4+hours trimming on one of our 35+-year-old oak trees. There were some limbs on top of the house that needed to go badly then he started trimming up the rest. If that was not enough he cut the bigger pieces up into smaller pieces for the firepit and the smoker. The old tree looks amazing now with its new haircut.
Jack and Andrew hauled off the rest of the limbs to the burn pile. Andrew is 6 years old and he is quite good at driving the lawnmower and trailer around.
I power washed the landscape rocks around 4 large flower beds and then power washed the sides and front of the house. The back of the house and the back porch will have to be another day. After all this work I required a nap lol. Dragging around a gasoline power washer is tough.
I realized it is time to paint again and since I always pick two new colors I have to start thinking about what color we will do. If the roof was not brown I would pick gray for sure.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, our youngest daughter was making homemade pizza in 2 of my super large sheet pans. There was enough left over pizza to last for days. That will make the kiddos happy.
We are so grateful to have them and their family in our lives they live nearby so that makes it even more special because we get to see the kids often.
We are very appreciative of Davids help he has done so much to help us out through the last 8 years he sees what needs to be done and just does it.
It is very important to always give people credit for the things they do for you.
Be thankful for the people in your life that want to be there and you’ll never miss the ones who aren’t.
