Gratitude Friday



Good morning! Today's latte is from Cafe Fresca at Holy Family Hospital in Spokane. I just left there after having a follow up mammogram and ultrasound. I also got to visit with my good friend Diane who works at Holy Family. Life is good in the lump department...very benign features and I'll get checked again in a year.

I am on my way out the door to Leavenworth, WA for a relaxing weekend on the Wenatchee River. We were blessed to be able to rent a big cabin for my cousins, David and myself. Having spent six years in Germany, Leavenworth isn't much of a Bavarian type town for us but it's still a great place to visit and play. Ready to go....and guess what? There's a Starbucks in Leavenworth. Score~

Here's my gratitude list for the week:

1. suntan lotion! My nose keeps getting darker and darker so I have been putting Face 45 on it. I also lost my sunglasses so there's not the very noticeable line anymore! :)

2. Jennifer! She's home for the weekend to hang out with the Beagle Boys and kitties.

3. Ian! He's back in San Francisco going to college at Art Academy Institute. Keep him in your prayers as he searches for a job and an apartment to move into with his friends. It was nice to have him home to hang out with the beagle boys while I am at camp all week.

4. a cool place to lay my head! I've had horrid headaches due to the heat and it was nice to come home last night & be cooled off in our basement. Of course, our temps are usual for Eastern WA. Can't imagine what Puget Sound people are feeling with their super high temps.

5. watching kids laugh and play at camp! Jenny and Brian's two kids were at camp with me this week. I didn't get to be with them much but it was fun to watch them have a wonderful time!

Have a wonderful week~ miss hearing from you all!!

Sunscreen is high on my list as well. I found this new, well it may not be new to you, sunscreen that sprays so that you can get your back without having somebody else do it for you. This is so nice for us single girls.

Have a great weekend.

Great list! It's weird down here, Ian can tell you that. It was a little misty at VBS yesterday. What kind of job is Ian looking for? We're SF natives so Norm (lived there for 29 years of his 30 years of life) might know ppl who know ppl. haha I always get headaches from the heat too. We'll need to get AC one day. Have a great weekend.

Sounds like a very fun weekend in Leavenworth. I've always wanted to go there.

This heat is normal for Eastern, WA? I was dying, and I grew up in Hawai'i. It doesn't get this hot there. And us, with only one fan. We were lucky enough to finally find another fan at Wal Mart. Hopefully the temps stay right where they were today.

Have a great weekend!

So glad to hear that everything checked out ok at your appointment. Thanks for the update!

Hope you had a great time in Leavenworth. I have memories of visiting there as a kid.

I'm thankful for AC, because this heat is unbearable for me! I am looking forward to visiting Discovery Bay and Whidbey Island this month, where it is a little cooler.

Have a great upcoming week!
