Yes, I’m still grateful for our trip to Victoria.
I’m thankful for artists, artisans, architects who feel driven to create. This is the home of Emily Carr, a famous Canadian artist, who was able to paint and paint and paint and stay in this inner harbor. This is her house.
Yes, I’m thankful for time together, time away, and a place that’s just a little bit different. (More different is also good, but it takes longer to get there.)
I’m thankful the weather held when we returned, for hours pulling weeds–slowly pulling the weeds.
I’m thankful for my book club, and the expanded perspectives these women offer.
I’m thankful our oldest kid joined us for dinner tonight, and I’m thankful for the dinner my husband cooked (I chopped a lot of herbs–a good thing).
The compost bin is full.
Tomorrow starts another busy week.
Our daughter, our youngest, graduates from high school.
Yes, I’m thankful.
