Thankful Thursday

Another Thursday, which means it's Thankful Thursday. This month we are meeting at
Laurie's, please join us.

This is the dog days of summer and it sure has felt like it the past week or so. We have had high dewpoints along with high temps. It makes a person feel like not doing much.

I am thankful for the window air conditioners we have!!

Our veggie garden took a hit with some storms we had and some of our tomato plants are not doing well. I am disappointed because I love fresh tomatoes.

The Zucchini is doing well and so far I have frozen about 5 cups of shredded Zucchini for the winter. We will be having more zucchini so I will be freezing more.

August is turning out to be a moderately busy month. One more game of T ball for the little guy and he will be done. The state fair will start later this month and that is something we always enjoy. There is also a county fair that the little guy likes to go to! I am taking a short trip at the end of the month. I am excited and may post more about that later! There's more, but I can't think of it all right now.

I am thankful to be done with back to school shopping. That includes clothes and school supplies. We purchased shoes yesterday and all that is left is winter jacket and snow pants!!

I am thankful that my husband heart test all came back with nothing to worry about! It was a relief to go to his doctor appt with him.

I am thankful that I have my little guy to give me hugs and kisses because I know it won't be long before he won't be doing that stuff anymore!!

I hope you all have a good week this coming week.
Matthew 5:14-16 (New Living Translation)

14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.
15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.
16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

Philippians 1:21
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
