Thankful Saturday: Rainy Relaxation



Things I'm Thankful For Today:

1. The quiet house, with only Dad and I awake, each on our respective computers, the only sounds the tapping of our keyboards, the clanking of the heater pipes, and the percolating coffee.

2. Knowing I have three more full days up here with my family.

3. The fact that falling asleep to one of  the Star Wars Trilogy is perfectly acceptable.

4. How much fun I had the other night watching Jacob's Parkour class. It really took me back to the days when we three sisters took tumbling and gymnastics classes. Made me want to get back into it- it's just so much FUN to flip around.. and talk about fabulous motivation to stay limber!

5. The gorgeous, gorgeous place where my family lives. The clouds are the best I've ever seen. Looking out over the valley, rain or shine, is breathtaking and brings such peace. Right now there is more green than I've seen in a long time. Lush and alive.

6. The AMAZING facial and massage I had yesterday. And the lessons I learned from my esthetician (for one, that washing my face with plain water is more drying to my skin than with a facewash!)

7. The delicious simplicity of roasted cherry or grape tomatoes with fresh garlic and olive oil. Gets me every time.

8. Having various family members in the kitchen making breakfast together. So comforting and entertaining.

9. How much fun we are going to have on this rainy Saturday. Maybe some Monopoly...

10. Sibling squabbles. It's nice to have siblings to squabble with and laugh at (erm, I mean with.)

11. Having people to play the piano with. It's so much better than being home alone with no one to hear it!

How is your Saturday? What are you thankful for?
