Thankful Wednesdays

I work night shift tonight so I had all day today to enjoy the weather and relax.

Everything about today so far has made me appreciative of my life:

*I slept in until 11.

*I woke up to fresh coffee (thanks husband!) and a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. ;-)

*I hung out with Matt for a couple hours

* I meandered around Target for awhile after grocery shopping.

*I baked homemade orange almond biscotti.

*The sound of my Kitchenaid mixer as it's churning flour, butter, eggs and sugar into something so delicious.

*I made homemade salsa to marinade in the fridge for 24 hours before our mexican feast with some friends tomorrow night.

* I drank sweet tea out of a mason jar with a lime.

*I burned my first pumpkin spice candles of the fall (pre-fall rather).

*I made stuffed peppers and had a good homecooked meal with my husband.

*Drank some coffee and ate aforementioned orange almond biscotti before heading off to a night of being a nurse.

*I get to go take care of people all night.

It was a great day and I am thankful for it.

"For this is the day the Lord has made.
I will rejoice and be glad in it".

What are you thankful for today?!
