I am so tired. A happy tired, but tired none the less. Today we started painting Courtney’s room. All I can say is…I need to work on my upper body strength cause baby I got none. I am getting ready to have a little Advil nightcap and head to bed. There is soooo much more to do tomorrow so sleep is needed. LOTS of sleep. But I didn’t want to miss a day of counting my blessings because my cup overfloweth…seriously overfloweth…
Today I am grateful for:
#1564 – #1578
** a wall of paint chips that make my head spin with possibilities
** “synergy” from Sherwin Williams…think teal, intense teal
** paint splattered yoga pants
** extension poles that allow me to actually reach the ceiling to paint
** trying a new bread recipe and realizing once more that I need to work on my bread making technique…today’s loaf was another hockey puck…ugh!
** the opportunity to make something beautiful for my daughter
** a hot shower to scrub off the remains of the day (so not the neatest painter in the world)
** being able to braid Courtney’s hair…it’s finally long enough!
** text messages from a sweet friend checking on my painting progress
** fall…the temperatures have finally dropped and sweaters are required
** the anticipation of meeting an online friend “in person” for the first time this weekend…can’t wait Colleen!! Cannot wait!!
** a warm blanket wrapped around me and my sweet Courtney during story time tonight
** the opportunity to serve the youth of my parish on the Girls confirmation retreat in 11 days
** friendship wether it be long distance or close by…it is a blessing…always…
** You my dear readers…you ROCK!!
