Thankful Thursday: May 23, 2013

It's Thursday--
the sun is shining
AND setting
{and I have 8 minutes until the sweet potato fries reach their crispy perfection}

The is stretching over to that horizon
{in the left corner of the window above my sink}
the ball of light seems tired from a long day of sunbeams, bright rays, & glaring moments.

I am stretching also, having burned through the last two weeks with the Mr. busy working...
Like the sun, I am tired from long days of sunbeams, bright rays & glaring moments.

The sun & I.
Tired, shining & thankful for Thursdays.

-memories to hold on to
-jacket weather (I kind of love it)
-Yankee candles

-Mr. H getting home safe & sound 
-Mr. H mowing the scruffy grass
-Miss N's walking courage
-Mr. N's many words

-swinging afternoons
-lazy mornings
-freshly baked banana bread
-sweet cuddles & book reading by candle light

-thank you's
-scratch n' sniff stickers (oh! the nostalgia!)
