Three day weekend

Hallelujah! Working at a private boarding school, we don’t get the same breaks as everyone else. So, yes, we labored on labor day. So, now I refrain from laboring while everyone else labors. To honor that, I started it out with a little Peculiar Children, some blankets, and recliners. And, I’m thankful for all of it.

A seat in the great outdoors

Tonight, I decided to try a walk since I still can’t shake this post-op sickness. When I finished, I was treated to this serene view outside our house, complete with my favorite new book on Audible. Tonight, I’m thankful for…trees. Yes, trees.

A day of rest

Today, I spent a good portion of the day sneezing from my surgery. However, I was able to take some breaks with some soup, cats, and learning new things. So, today, I’m thankful for the rest.


Today was one of those hard days. And, with that I figured, what better than jam and crackers. And, you know what? I was right. Needless to say, tonight I am thankful for crackers and jam – a simple life pleasure.

We are NOT superheroes

Tonight, I had lofty ambitions. Tonight, I took a nap. Tonight, I realized I was not a superhero, but instead a very tired, over-worked human. And, tonight, I’m thankful for that realization.


Today, our monthly bottle of wine came in. Though we arenot uge wine drinkers, we have a love for a certain place: Chisolm Trail Winery. And, tonight, I’m very thankful for it.

Audio books

Today, I’m thankful for audio books. I developed the addiction over the summer. And, now, it’s the thing I look forward to every morning – ┬ádriving in traffic so I can listen to my Audible book. I listen to it when I work out, when I rest, and when I drive. Yes, I’m an audio book addict. And, today, I’m thankful for it as I conquer my first sickness of the school year.


Today, I took time off from my evening responsibilities to just rest. While I hated skipping out, it was necessary. So, today, I’m thankful for taking care of my health.
