Ah, this feels better. I decided to only do Grateful over on VV for a while until I got on top of things around here again. Didn't happen, of course. My "new normal" continues to get the better of me, but not doing Grateful here on Maxabella loves... well, wasn't helping at all.
Just didn't feel right.
And so I'm back, from outer space, and this week I'm grateful for...
299. Trombones - Maxi thought it would give the French Horn a go when he joined the school band next year. The French Horn is known as the hardest brass instrument to play, so I was a little concerned that he-who-gives-as-little-effort-as-possible-to-things would launch himself straight into something like that. Turned out he was more 'suited' to the Trombone and he's so over-the-moon happy about being a trombone player and so, frankly, am I.
300. New rooms - the girls are in their new room. I repeat, the girls are in their new bedroom. The boy is in his new bedroom, repeat, in his new bedroom. And it took under a year and half to make it happen... ... ... when I get my new camera up and running, I will share the fabulousness. You might catch a sneak peek when I share our Chrissy decos this year.
301. Tin cans - I've been punching holes out of them and making them into lanterns for a party we're having a bit later. The image above is from Layer Cake - I'm not quite that clever. My holes look more like squelches, but I'm learning. I've been making them into pencil tins. I've been using them as vases. Behold, the humble tin can.
What's got you grateful this week?
