Today I am thankful for . . .
450. The gift of Finding a Tick in My Hair Before It Made Contact with My Skin. Yuck. That's all I'll say. Now I feel like they're crawling all over me constantly - not a good feeling.
451. The gift of Working in Soil. Today I finally got out to some of my flowerbeds to weed and dig and transplant, and plant. I don't have any of my annuals purchased yet--not sure when that's going to happen; but I bought some herbs and made two herb bowls, planted some bulb-flowers that a friend gave me, and transplanted some pre-existing perennials and moved them to different parts of the yard. What I thought was going to take me about an hour to do took three hours. I definitely got my dose of Vitamin D today!
452. The gift of Two Days Off at the Beginning of the Week. Usually I work Monday to Wednesday; this week, due to some scheduling changes, I had Monday and Tuesday off. While it made for an extra-long weekend (backwards), it feels strange to be returning to work tomorrow, in the middle of the week. I hope I make it--I'm still very tired from my life's events over the past two weeks. I am looking forward to the end of June!
