Since we’re past the 15th, we’re now officially in late-August. I feel it. Gerry commented this week that he feels it too. Change is in the air. For now, lest I get too far ahead of my pumpkin-spice-latte-craving self, let’s look back at things I’m thankful for this week with a Friday’s Fave Five post.
A working kitchen tap tops the list for me. After not having one for a few weeks, turning on the tap and having water flow in my kitchen sink is cause for celebration. And I did. By way of dancing a little jig. 🙂
Coffee (for me) and conversation with a friend at a table in the park. It’s a sweet way to spend a summer afternoon.
My once-a-month house cleaners came this week. That’s a gift-to-myself I appreciate immensely. I had a regular bi-weekly house cleaner during my working years, but took on the work myself (with Gerry’s help, of course) after I retired. A pending surgery a few years ago prompted me to get someone in for my recovery period and I just kept up with it.
Harvesting supper from the backyard is even sweeter than getting it from my community garden plot like I did when we lived in Kamloops. I am so grateful for Gerry’s effort in creating a backyard garden oasis. This time of year, we at from it daily (and even pay plumbers, in part, with cucumbers!).
Homemade yogurt. I made plain yogurt for years, but got away from doing so. I started again, using my Instant Pot as an incubator this time, and love the creamy deliciousness. A bowl, served with a handful of frozen blueberries has become a nightly treat.
That’s it for this week. Gerry and I are off on a little adventure today—getting it in before we bring the puppy home next week! It’s a good life and I’m thankful for it.
