{Thankful} Day 12 & 13

Day 12 –
I got SO much done today. Like woke up from a good night sleep and didn’t stop until 16 hours later. I finished up a stack of mug rugs, packaged orders, started cleaning the house, made sweet chex mix, cleaned some more, did laundry, folded laundry, made lunch (but forgot to eat any myself), changed sheets, purged a TON of magazines, dropped sewing machine off at the ‘spa’, washed & vacuumed the car, picked up dinner, cleaned the car a little more, took down fall/Halloween decor inside & out, added new artwork to walls, packed our bags, cleaned the upstairs, answered e-mails, sent e-mails, showered and blogged. PHEW!! Seriously, I can’t believe I got it all done, but I did … and as I stood in the hot shower I thought how thankful I was for the strength and energy to get all of that done. So many are physically unable to do half of this. I don’t want to forget the blessing of physical energy.

Day 13 –
Thankful for time away. Time with family out of the normal ‘stresses’ of life. No house to clean {hurray it’s all clean} … laundry? maybe … grocery shopping? a little … fixing meals … of course! But when all those things are done with your best friend it doesn’t really feel like a chore any more. We’re going to enjoy this short little bit of R&R and make the most of it!

That little bit of new artwork I mentioned? It’s the two pieces above. Both showed up on my doorstep Saturday and I had to stop cleaning, tear into them and promptly put them in their new homes. I can’t wait to show you how they look in our house. Such a fun pop of color that will catch my eye and heart and remind me to be thankful ALL the time and to be in prayer for our family.

** I got both of these for 30% off and with FREE shipping. You can too through the end of the month. The quality is great and they are substantial pieces at a great price. **
