Thankful Friday, No. 11

Thank goodness it’s Friday. That means it’s time to take a moment to capture the things I’m thankful for from the past week, to appreciate the big and the small things.

Here’s my random list of things I’m thankful for this past week:

1. I am thankful for a boring meeting, which sparked a streak of productive doodling, motivating me to get back to doodling and sketching.

2. I am thankful for a helpful, inspiring meeting full of design tips and ideas.

3. I am thankful to my husband for continuing to take good care of our cars with regular maintenance.

4. I am thankful for packages from Spoonflower.

5. I am thankful for texting conversations with faraway friends.

6. I am thankful for my own movie night when I got to pick the movie.

7. I am thankful for a rare day off.

8. I am thankful to my sister for being so diligent at continuing to send me a postcard each week.

9. I am thankful for a long streak of crappy weather, keeping me indoors and focused on homework projects.

10. I am thankful for green grapes. They have been so tasty lately!

Hope you had a good week, and enjoy a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

  • A wonderful list to be thankful for! I am thankful that I have access to Home Depot, where I just picked up some more cedar boards and soil to build more raised garden beds! And a local Wilco store where I was able to pick up more vegetable seeds and strawberry starts. My mouth is watering thinking of the wonderful fruits and vegetables I am able to grow to nourish us this spring! I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

    • Thanks Cheryl! I Love Your list. You sound so excited about all your garden plans. You got a lot of the kinks out last year and had quite a successful garden, if I’m remembering correctly. I have only been dreaming of getting out in the garden, since our yard is still covered in snow.

  • You have the best lists:) I’m thankful for spending time with my girls in Denver this weekend!

    • Thanks so much Vicki! How fun to be visiting your girls in Denver. And how nice that it’s not as far to get to Denver for you since you moved.

  • Hello Terri,

    Lovely Crocus flowers, I think this is the type of plant where Saffron comes from (the yellow bits). Your Sister and Husband sound so lovely and reliable. Doodling at a meeting, I often wonder what people do in boring meetings, sounds like you got a buzz from your drawing.

    Happy creating.

    • Thanks Bev. We had an early spring last year, so all our crocus bulbs bloomed early. No early spring around here this year since our yard is still covered in snow, and our forecast says snow the next two days.

  • I am thankful for friends near and far (also texting friends…) and grandchildren nearby, who never fail to bring a smile to my face.
