So, I've missed a few days. On the upside though, several of them have been missed to writing. I'm getting so much done, and I'm thrilled with it. Now if I can just balance the housework in again, everything would be peachy. So I'll try to catch up briefly while Lachlan sings along with Dory on Finding Nemo.
Day Eight: I am grateful for such a beautifully mild fall so far. Even after the chill of this morning, I can still appreciate barely having to run my heater at all. And on that note:
Day Nine: I am grateful for a house full of warm bodies. Even today, with a high of 54 degrees and a very chill wind, the warmth of the children playing plus a little help from the oven cooking supper was all we needed to warm our house. I didn't have to turn the heater on until after everyone went to bed and the temperature had dropped below freezing outside.
Day Ten: I am grateful for a new church full of new friends. We have been welcomed warmly and it already feels like home.
Day Eleven: I am grateful for 4 lb, 4 oz tiny skinny newborns stretching up into great, hulking, ten year olds, that go off to a friend's house by themselves to play video games with barely a goodbye wave and no apprehensions. And no, that was not a tear in my eye. *sniff*
