The rain has rolled in tonight, a misty kind with haze that is disappearing into the darkness. I wonder what we'll wake up to, tomorrow. It's really anyone's guess this time of year, but I suppose I *could* look at the forecast. I think I'd rather just take my chances; the way the weather's been this week, it's going to change within a few hours, anyway. Storms roll in, roll out, the wind pops up, dies down; it's all part of spring.
I'm grateful too that Seth had a good trip--it was one of those school things and he did well, so glad for him, but also very happy to have him home!
I'm grateful for this crazy blogging challenge I'm taking part in--today was K, tomorrow is L and then we're halfway. It's been fun, and inspiring, and a bit of work to get around and look at everyone else's blogs. No, I haven't come close to touching a fraction of all the blogs, but I make sure to comment back, and then look for a few other kindred souls to get to know. Blogger friend Lisa sends me tips when she finds a good one too, so I have spies (the good kind).
I'm grateful for a couple of long weekends coming up on the calendar, with husband. Really, really looking forward to those. Just the two of us... nice.
The front bed is fully popped in color right now, between the bleeding hearts and the tulips and the daffodils and the magnolia and the grape hyacinth. It's really pretty. The peonies are finally up and growing, but since they don't bloom until Memorial Day, they have a ways to go! I'm grateful for spring color.
My salad last night, though it has some winter elements still to it, really reminded me of spring eating--I need to eat more salads! With asparagus! Some of my very favorite salads have asparagus in them, it's true. But, asparagus or not, I am grateful for the plethora of green, leafy plants that are tasty and readily available.
I love learning, and getting to learn every day is pretty fun for me. I am grateful for technology and information, which assist in my learning curve, so much.
I'm grateful for love. For God's love and grace, more than any other, but for human love too, which--while having limits--is powerful and catches me up short with its impact on my life, every day. Giving and receiving love. It's awesome.
I'm grateful for people who share what's on their happy list, in creative ways, too:
What's on your happy list this week? Tonight? Tell me!
I wish you a weekend of joy and comfort, whatever that means to you. Peace.
