Gratitude Lately

Lately, I've been thankful for

Shorts, sandals and afternoon walks
with the world's best dog

Air conditioner repairmen
with good news on
 a blistering hot day
(in May!)

New discoveries that
satisfy a sweet tooth

Weather reporters, safe basements
and a little something
 to calm the nerves

 Down comforters, heated car seats 
and the knowledge that summer 
is really just around the corner.

Happy Sunday, friends!
What are you grateful for this week?

    1. It's usually pretty wild in the spring, but this year seems worse than ever! And my mom (who lives on the coast in Oregon) has had temps in the 80s. Unheard of in May!

  2. Sea salt caramel gelato? I NEED to find some of that!!

  3. Oooh, let's get that carton of Haagan-Dazs and two spoons! Then we can go on a walk together. If we have the energy.

    1. Sounds like a plan to me! Ice cream and a long walk. Perfect!

  4. Found the sea salt gelato - yum! Didn't go for whiskey, but did decide that Sam Adam's Porch Rocker will be my beer of choice this summer.

    1. That sea salt gelato is yummy, isn't it? I'll have to try that Sam Adam's. We usually drink Negra Modelo or Shiner Bock.
