Thankful Thursday

 

Yay!  Pumpkin Muffin's year long Nepal project is done!

Today was the travel expo, 'Around the World in 180 Days' at the school!  On her desk, at left, is the report, handmade Nepali dolls in traditional Sherpa dress, and a pink llama's wool poncho, also handmade in Nepal.  To the left is a pudding dish called Kheer, with lots of cinnamon and raisins. 

And, now for the Thankful's...

1.     I am very grateful that Pumpkin worked so hard on her project and earned a 100% on each written part and on today's expo presentation!

2.     Hubby is fast improving!  No word as to results of ct scan or plan of attack yet from the specialist, yet, though.  Have I mentioned I hate diverticulitis?

3.     Coffee.  <sigh>

4.     Naps.  If not for the two naps I got this week, I would have really been cranky.  lol

5.     Fuzzy and Hammer both officially were promoted to the rank of Star Scout last night at their Scout Awards Night.  Each also received some more merit badges!

Okey dokey... off to parent and what-not!

be well,
Dawn

Congratulations to Pumpkin!  That pudding dish sounds good, I love cinnamon and raisins together.  
It's good to hear that hubby's improving, hope things go okay with the specialist.  And #4, I like naps, too!

picture looks great from Pumpkin's report! looks like a lot of hard work! WTG for her doing so good on it and getting a great grade on it!

glad hubby's doing a bit better too!

congrats to the boys for getting promoted up in Scouts!

and so glad there's coffee to make your day!!! you'd love it here, a Starbucks on every corner (provided you like Starbucks LOL) not quite every corner but every shopping center and sometimes there's a Starbucks store and then inside a grocery store they'll have a Starbucks kiosk

as always, great things to be thankful for!
