Hi! In honor of Polly…I am so thankful that it is Thursday…aren’t you? Because tomorrow is Friday and Friday is one of my favorite days…along with Sunday and Monday (morning only). I am thankful for lots of things today!
I am thankful that it did not rain last night and the Harrison Avenue Market Place was not canceled! Of course, I was so busy I did not take any pictures and I am so sorry about that. My church was in charge of kid stuff, basically. We had a face painting booth and games. My friend Kiki and I were in charge of games. It was really just one game, “pick a stick”. It was so fun! Kids lined up to pick a maximum of 3 sticks and if any of their sticks had orange on the bottom they won a prize! Of course, I let the kids pick sticks until they got an orange bottomed one, whoops! I just didn’t enjoy the thought of sending them away without a prize. So, I didn’t! The kids and parents were so appreciative that we had games and face painting to entertain the kids with…it’s such a blessing to make people happy!
I am thankful for lunch because at lunch I ate a pluot. Which is a cross hybrid of a plum and an apricot. If you did not know.
and it may be my new favorite fruit! I’ve been on a peach kick for quite some time now. The pluot was small and sweet and I liked it very much! Small fruit are so cute.
I am thankful for my iPod touch I got yesterday. I love it so, so much! It is so cool…it’s the iPhone without the phone. Is it strange that I get online on my iPod touch more than on my MacBook? I’m just so excited about it I find myself twittering from it and checking facebook even though my MacBook is 2 feet away from me!
Oh! And I am thankful that I am cooking dinner tonight…some type of Orzo Chicken dish with goat cheese and grape tomatoes! I got the recipe from Cooking Light. I will let y’all know how it turns out. But it does have my favorite ingredient, goat cheese, in it so I am pretty confident it’s gonna be a winner 🙂
The Healthy Living Summit starts today! If any of y’all are headed to Boston or are there I hope y’all have a great time! I know it is going to be such a good thing. I wish I was able to go. Maybe next time! I am very thankful for all of the fabulous ladies behind HLS. They are seriously some inspiring and beautiful bloggers.
And most of all I am thankful for this:
