This grainy picture was taken this morning through the sliding glass door off my dining room. I have enjoyed my birds so much this year. This fella came with his mate this morning to bring a splash of sun to a dreary, rainy day. I am grateful for the rain though, as we have been in a drought all winter.
I have been wrapped up in keeping the house neat and clean while it is on the market. My house keeper quit last week. I have hired a new one to start work next week. I am grateful to have a house to clean, and the resources to hire someone else to do it.
We are expecting an offer in the next couple of days, and a second couple is showing interest. I love this place, but it is no longer where we need to live. I think I have gypsy soul. I just have to move from time to time. I am grateful for a husband who is gifted with budgeting and finances so that we are in a position to be able to move and change when the time comes.
Finally, I am grateful to be alive and unharmed and for my children and Mom to be alive and unharmed. We rode our van down an embankment a couple of days age. It was miraculous that we did not roll. I was not even much sore. That my family is safe is truly a gift.
