gratitude sunday


gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • Our Toyota passed its annual state inspection this week (and without too high of a bill!)
  • The “extra” hour this weekend, which I wisely used by sleeping in an extra hour today 🙂
  • The gift from our neighbor of a barely used food dehydrator, and wow has James been busy ever since! I think my favorite is the garlic powder made from our homegrown garlic — so good!
  • Saturday morning thrifting
  • Feeling more at home during the weekly UU services I’ve been attending; it’s been a long time since I had a church family and it’s nice to feel like I’ve finally found one again


  • The Enchanted Forest that surrounds our home. It is a special place, full of surprises, like the older man whose path I crossed today on my afternoon walk with Buster. He too was out walking, but dressed like a Bavarian (yes!) and playing a harmonica. I’ve never seen him before, and I don’t know how he found these woods. But I’m awfully glad he did
  • Lunch of pumpkin soup with biscuits, hot from the oven
  • Remembering to breathe before speaking
  • Finding some of my favorite yarn on sale (so ordered a few new colors)
  • The love of my husband and little Baldy Hill family — it can be easy to take those closest to us for granted sometimes, but each day we are together is a blessing. And for that I am very grateful 🙂
