Thongs and Things

Day 26 ~ August 3
Sunday
Five Things I Am Grateful For Today 

1. That I just now caught a typo and didn't post Five Thongs I Am Grateful For Today 

2. All the closet cleaning is DONE!! No things/thongs/things (!) found


3. I can now actually walk in the walk-in closet 


4. The feeling of freedom that comes when you toss something out that brings a negative vibe. That is reason enough. 


5. Zen = no clutter. A more peaceful me.

Goodnight Friends
Since we are talking about thongs, there will be no pic tonight.

Oh yes, It was an epic lost.

Day 22 ~ July 30

 Wednesday ~ Five Things I Am Grateful For Today (Yikes! I got home very late!)

1. The kind stranger man who went out of his way tonight to actually lead me back to the turn I missed when I got lost on the way to the church. (Now that was a crazy long sentence!)..... "Follow me!" he said. He didn't have to do that. But if he hadn't, I would have crossed a state line. Seriously. Oh yes, it was an epic lost.


2. Getting lost. On the way home. Again. Believe it. I met more than one kind stranger in the middle of the middle of the MIDDLE of nowhere. 


3. Finding this tree and this sunset in God's country


4. Realizing that unnerving twists and turns can have blessings too


5. Hearing my brother sing. That was worth getting lost for......

Goodnight Friends

Have You Ever Walked On a Dam?


Day 19 ~ July 27
Sunday
Five Things I Am Grateful For Today



1. Road trips. Even short ones.


2. Six cleaned-out kitchen drawers!!!! Oh, the junk.


3. Two empty Sarah McLachlan Mirrorball CD cases. I bought two just in case I lost one and there would always be one in the car. Of course, I lost both of them. WHERE are the CDs? Guess I'm just Building A Mystery......


4. The man on the dam. Realllly???! I almost screamed "Don't jump!!" until I realized he was fishing. Ya gotta love fishing to do something that dangerous.


5. That I didn't get arrested for stopping on the bridge to take these photos.
Don't tell the police, K?




Goodnight Friends

Can Someone Say Peanut Butter?

Day 17 ~ July 25
Friday
Five Things I Am Grateful For


1. My handwriting. Because it reminds me of my mother. Do you have cursive writing like your mother's?


2. Summer hugs from former students in the grocery store. It's amazing how they loooooove you when their parents are around. LOL


3. The muzzle on my mouth in the grocery store. 


4. Slow poke people in the grocery store. If I hadn't been stuck behind a family with a gazillion children in the peanut butter aisle I would have forgotten the peanut butter. Heaven forbid!!!


5. Fast food places that cheerfully give you ice water with lemon - for free. Even if that is all you want.

P.S. I'll be here trying to google map a new grocery store. Sigh.




Day 16 ~ July 24
Thursday

1. The dungeon (aka the basement). There is a severe thunderstorm brewing with winds to reach 58 mph tonight, heavy rain and hail. I am thankful for stairwell hiding places.
2. Peanut butter and pil
lows
3. Peanut butter and pillows in the stairwell
4. Rain. Even though the house is rattling like a choo-choo train

5. Homer (the Palace Dog) I am taking him with me!!

Goodnight Friends
Please tell the handsome firemen where I am.
