It's been way too long since I did a Five Things post. So here goes!
Second - I'm thankful for walks in the park with the dogs. Exploring a new trail and discovering new sights. Quiet, peaceful, just walking along.
Third - I'm thankful for Friday nights with the fifth grader. I've known for many years that someday he will have other things to do on Friday nights and treasure each visit that we have now. Someday will be here all too soon. I'm also thankful he mowed my yard tonight!
Fourth - I'm thankful that the days are getting longer, giving me more precious hours outside. I'm thankful for time to work outside until dark, going inside feeling like I've accomplished something. I love the evening hours.
Fifth - I'm thankful for Lacey. She came to me as a young, starving mother and has contentedly lived in my garage ever since. She keeps me company while I'm working outside, but spends many lonely hours in the garage or on my front porch. She doesn't mind the cold or heat in the garage; maybe she sees the sunny mornings as her reward. She is a happy little cat with a sweet spirit. And, she can be very entertaining!
