Thankful Friday

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

1. I am thankful there’s only 2 days left in the semester.

2. I am thankful I ran into a few old friends at the Portfolio show earlier this week.

3. I am thankful I got to try a little letterpress printing twice this week.

4. I am thankful for the free pizza from the art club at school.

5. I am thankful to the graduating portfolio students for their advice on how to get ready for it and get through it.

6. I am thankful for the new and improved garden we have. I converted our former raised vegetable garden to a butterfly garden with new plants that will hopefully attract butterflies.

7. I am thankful for the new blackberry bushes I found at the garden center. I planted them right next to my existing raspberry patch.

8. I am thankful to see buds on all our trees.

9. I am thankful for Sunday night movies and  popcorn.

10. I am thankful for my Mom! Happy Mother’s Day to all my family and friends.

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



  • Oh I would really treasure a butterfly garden! Have fun with it! Ayden loves chasing butterflies in our yard!

    • I’m so excited to see what happens. I have a park bench in front of it so I can watch. Even if it doesn’t attract a lot of butterflies, it’s still going to be nice to enjoy the flowers.

  • Butterflies, free pizza, friends you have had a lovely week Terri, Enjoy Sunday with your Mum if she is close by.

    Happy creating.

  • Sounds like a great week for you! Yay, almost done with the semester! I am thankful for the warm spring days that make it wonderful for planting my garden! Enjoy your weekend!

  • Well, I”m late again. I love that you got to try letterpress twice! Cool! I’m thankful for the few warm days we had before it got cooooold again. I was in WI over the weekend, and I know you had coooold as well! I’m thankful for my mom and for wonderful inlaws. Thankful for Elsa’s sense of humor!

  • The butterfly garden sounds wonderful! Do you have hummingbirds? They’d like it, too:)

    • Thanks Vicki! I’m way more excited for the butterfly garden than I was a vegetable garden. We do get hummingbirds, which are attracted to our big wiegelia shrubs. But I forgot, they might like the plants in the new butterfly garden too. Fun!
