Hello, Summer!

When summer finally decided to show up, it came in with guns blazing! Temps in the 90s here with humidity so high you could cut it with a knife.

Hello, summer!

Here are some summertime thankfuls:

you don't need to take a jacket if you're going out at night (although you might need one for intense air conditioning)

you don't have to scrape frost off your car windows

flip flops

farmers markets

popsicles

Come On And Try It!

I don't know how the week can be over so quickly when the individual days seem to drag on and on.  Anyone else feel that?

The good news about the week flying by is that it's your chance to list your thankfuls once again. Here's my list:

I'm thankful for:

1. funny memes
2. friends who like to exchange funny memes with me
3. warm, sunshiny days
4. the smell of sunscreen
5. baby smiles
6. snacks
7. hugs
8. money found in a pocket
9. taking off your shoes at the end of a long day
10. a new tube of toothpaste

See how easy it is? Try it and see, and then link up with the Ten Things of Thankful below!

Oh, The Weather Inside Is Frightful

 Nothing says "holiday weekend" like a household disaster! It's how our family celebrates. Not by choice, mind you, but you would think so, as often as it happens. 

Most of our household disasters are water related. Sewer back ups. Broken pipes. Heavy rains finding their way inside. Risk of actual flooding from lake level rising. Dishwashers choosing to drain out the edges of the door rather than through the plumbing system.

This weekend's holiday disaster is multi-faceted, but it ends with a temporary window unit air conditioner installed (need I say incorrectly?) so the water (make that ICY COLD water) that it collects inside poured out of the unit and INTO the house and was found by my bare feet on the very squishy, very wet carpet (see above about temperature of the water and imagine that with bare feet). 

The fun never ends around here.

Here's a thankful: once the central air conditioning debacle is remediated, we can finally replace the ugly (and currently wet with potential for mold) carpet.

Look for those silver linings in everything you do.

What Spring Brings

Ahh, spring in the Midwest! It starts with the green shoots of daffodils popping up through the ground. Next is the grass greening, tulips, and buds on the trees, followed by full-on leafy trees, irises, and warm days. 

And then? It's tornado season, of course!

There have been numerous thunderstorms in the past few weeks, several of them severe. We've had hail. We've had flooding. And we've had tornado watches, tornado warnings, tornados touching down, some of them causing death and destruction.

Today, in southwest Missouri, we had more than one thunderstorm move through the area, followed by a tornado warning that came on very quickly. We were safe, but it was darn close!

Can you BE a lot more thankful than when just missed by a tornado?

It's sure a terrific way to start a thankful list, isn't it? What have YOU got on YOUR list? Write them, link them, and enjoy the Ten Things of Thankful weekend blog hop!
