We had a few cold and power-less days in our home this past week, which left me so thankful for many simple things... some lovely, some not... all a gift...
Just baked chocolate chip cookies, coffee, and conversation in a friend's warm living room.
Our tough fish, Gershwin, who survived the cold... just barely.
A thermos of hot water carried down the sidewalk.
A warm breakfast.
The oranges and pinks of sunset reflecting on the snow.
Refreshing computer-free days.
Travel book lights.
Big limbs falling in safe places.
Snowballs in my freezer.
An opportunity to clean the inside of the fridge.
Our grimy van.
Piles of wet snow gear.
Our clothes dryer.
These brilliant hand-warmers. (thanks, Mom)
When friends say the hard things.
Your list is still one of my favorites to read each week!ReplyDelete
My favorite # this week is the snowballs in the freezer. :)
We had a the power out in a storm, but not for a few days... what a good attitude you have :)ReplyDelete
The grimy van, so glad I'm not alone in that one. Great list!ReplyDelete
I also enjoy reading your list each week...thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I so get this. We lose power a lot in our neighborhood. One time, we once had no power for a week, and had to sleep in our coats.:( The fun part though was cooking in the fire place! It sounds like you made your time an adventure.ReplyDelete
Love your lists! Wow, it must have been hard to be without power for so long!! I wrote on my blog today about creative writing and how I teach it. I would love your input!! I would love to know your methodology w/Hannah!ReplyDelete
I was thankful for my hair dryer this week as well. Mine was broken for a while and when I got a new one it made my day =)ReplyDelete
Absolutely LOVE your list, and your children are so beautiful. Be blessed today :)ReplyDelete
