Giving thanks

If I could use two words to capture our Thanksgiving weekend they would be productive and relaxing.

Productive. We cleared brush in the backyard. We raked up mulch from the driveway. We trimmed bushes. We cleaned the disaster area that is our garage. We completed a small project in the bathroom. We re-created a path from our back gate to the dirt path and creek behind our property. We made real progress in organizing our digital photos. We finalized our gift list for everyone in the family.

Relaxing. We spent hours exploring outside with HP--walking the dirt (mud) path, throwing rocks in the creek, walking up and down the mulch pathway from our door to the gate. We watched a movie.  We enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal with a college friend and her family. We slept in.

At the end of the weekend just before we went to sleep Neil turned to me and said, "It's been a good weekend, hasn't it?" Yes. Yes, it has.

And for that, I am thankful.
