Feeling so very thankful for the chain of events that brought these girls into our family.
We ordered 30 day-old chicks to split with two other people. One passed hours after arrival last Thursday and the other 29 are in two brooders in my laundry room. I absolutely adore having them and playing with them and caring for them and just plain watching them grow - and these girls grow quickly. They are seven days old and already testing out their wings! We love our pets around here and we can already tell that these girls are going to fit in beautifully.
A big thank you to Abi Gayle of SpiderWomanKnits for all the wonderful information and advice on selecting chicks and constructing a brooder. Blogger friends are the best!
And thank you so much to Kristyn for these awesome handmade + personalized note cards. I love them.
Our taste buds are thankful for the garden that provides us with fresh green onions and dill to serve on buttered potatoes at dinner. (These are the green tops of our onion plants because I couldn't find chives this year.)
And grateful for bits of sewing time here and there that allowed me to finish up this large 6' x 6' quilt top. I'll share more once I get some pictures of the completed quilt.
It goes without saying (however saying is often important) but I am most thankful for my family and friends and my home and dinner time with my family. My favorite part of the day is during dinner when we go around the table and ask each of the kiddos to tell "What was the best part of your day?" and "What was the worst part of your day?" Their answers often spark wonderful family discussions and other times we all laugh at how good we have it because the "worst part" wasn't that bad all. Yes, I am very thankful for dinner time.
What are you thankful for this week?
