Thankful Thursday (5)

Today I am thankful for. . .

My job.  I ended up in such a better situation than the last place I was at.  I work closer to home, in a nicer environment, and with people who actually value my experience and opinion. 

Fall.  In northeast Ohio we often say "Wait an hour and the weather will change."  Not this year.  We've had an extremely good autumn.  The weather has been pleasant, and on some days, downright warm for the season.  I've been able to get out on the weekends and get the gardens cleaned up.  I'm looking forward to this weekend and finishing up the last of it.

Our neighbors.  Our next door neighbors have a puppy, Lucy, who is turning out to be a real escape artist.  She's actually figured out how to open their back door.  When she's loose the first place she comes is to visit us, or, I should say, to visit Jack.  So, we play with them, practice her commands, and then walk her home.  We love it.  Jack loves it.  And so does Lucy.  On Sunday, Lucy's human, K, stopped over with a gift bag of goodies thanking us for helping out when she's out and about.  It was so sweet!
