Thankful Thursday: August 15, 2013

Busy days and starry nights
just how I like them.

Full of thanks, 
and I've got some streamers to put around a door way before I fall into bed (tomorrow! birthday!)...
so let's jump into it:

I'm Thankful For:

-new gloves for weed picking & block building w/kids
-the almost-finished gate (crowning piece of the privacy fence project!)
-Mr. H's willingness to try new things (he replaced a screen on know, why not)
-yard sale finds
-toenail polish & shaved legs
