Today’s 5 Thankful Things:
… okay, things for which I’m thankful, but I like the alliterative roll of “thankful things” …
- First Saturday of the month goodies – At Central Indiana Goodwill stores, everything is 50% off the first Saturday of the month. We not only love bargains, but we always find fun things there. Today included jeans, 3 dresses, 2 nice dress shirts, 5 books, a dvd, a few kitchen goodies, and more. All for the price of one new pair of jeans at a department store. Cool stuff!
New hummer feeder – The hummingbird feeder we’ve had for five years died last month (result of a glass feeder breaking loose and falling onto bricks). So what is the blessing? We purchased a new feeder last week, and the hummingbirds seem to enjoy it! The little birds enjoy actually perching on this plastic window feeder. What a joy to watch! In the coming weeks, I’ll work to get additional pictures, but I had to start somewhere.More photos will come!
- Artistic daughter – Emily is just kicking off an art blog, “The Many Arts of Emily.” The easiest way to see her Tumblr page is through http://www.emilyknight.org. I look forward to watching as she shares her growing abilities through pencil, pen, clay, and more. What a joy it has been to watch her talents bloom!
- Elastic – This may sound odd, but to folks like me who find increasing difficulty with coordination and dexterity, pants that don’t require buttons and zippers are appreciated! It is nice to wear clothing that doesn’t offer unnecessary frustration. Blessings to those who have designed clothing with elastic rather than zippers and such.
- Canada! – Yesterday was Canada Day, and I certainly didn’t mean to overlook our northern neighbors. Friends we love, literature we hold dear, and natural beauty shine the spotlight on this dear nation. Happy Canada Day, friends! (Soory I’m late.)
