Thankful Thursday - Edition 17

It's Thankful Thursday again. What have I been thankful for this past week?

1.  Showers!  I was able to take a nice long shower last Friday and haven't looked back since.  A week of baths was the worst!

2. All the pretty birds.  I have spotted a bunch of blue birds and cardinals and some yellow finches in the back yard this past week along with all the robins and that can only mean that even if the weather has been less than lovely, spring really is here.

3.  And as much as I don't like alllllllllllll the rain we've been having, it really has made everything so green and all the flowering bushes and trees have really been putting on a show the last few weeks.

4.  And Lidl is still impressing me with their affordable flower selections:

$6 for these lovely lillies.

$10 for these gorgeous tulips!

5. The forecast for Sunday is perfect for the conference track meet: 70 and sunny with 0% chance of rain!  Please Lord, let it be!

6. Dan comes home tonight from his trip to Montreal.  I am always thankful when his trips don't take him away over the weekend.

7. Sarah had New Villain Night at the high school last night.  She is very excited for middle school to be over and for high school to start. She got to choose her electives, pick her summer reading book, set up her school email account, and she even got to talk with the swim coach and the volleyball coach. I am very thankful our kids are able to attend this school.  Peter has had a great Freshman year so far and for that too, I am extremely thankful!

8. Lunch with my bestie!  Yesterday was Jennifer's birthday and my schedule cleared up at the last minute and I was able to eat lunch with her.  I didn't think I was going to have time but I got all my work done early and was able to visit with her.  I am always thankful to get to spend time with her.

What are you thankful for this week?

The flowers are lovely; tulips are big favorite of mine! Yay for spring birds and green grass. :) High school for Sarah? Already?? YIKes! I'm thankful for so many things this week, mostly a benign test result that I had to wait 7 days for!!

I love a good soak in the tub (not the one we have here...but still) but nothing beats a shower for feeling clean!

I'm grateful that my irises are finally blooming. When we moved here the irises never bloomed (probably because they were planted in the shade!). Last summer, I moved them to a sunnier area and this year they rewarded me for my efforts.
