this and that

highlights from a busy day.

we were invaded by two dogs and a carebear.

 we whipped out some delicious breakfast cookies.

and we climbed an immense mountain of laundry.

this was only half of it...

gettin' there...

I am thankful for a lawn that needs mowing, 
windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing
 because it means I have a home.... 
I am thankful for the piles of laundry and ironing 
because it means my loved ones are nearby.
