Thankful Thursday

We have a rental home from which our tenants moved out last week. There is always some cleaning and spiffing up that we need to do between tenants. Some of it is pretty heavy work, in fact. I started on it last Wednesday and Andy took this week off to work on it as well. Emily pitched in too and we've got it finished except for a few optional things and keeping up the mowing while its vacant. My thankfulness today is focused on:
  • both Andy and myself being physically able to do that work (Emily is young enough to take it for granted, of course)
  • cooler, less humid weather to accomplish the outdoor work
  • having the work completed so we can enjoy some fun together while Andy is off the rest of the week
  • enjoying the abundant tomatoes which the former tenants planted and left just as they started to produce
What are you thanking God for today? Each Thursday of 2010, I'm joining Kim of The Upward Call and other friends in thanking God for His goodness to us. Thankfulness shared just multiplies the blessings. Won't you join us?

It sounds like we've been doing a lot of the same kind of work! It feels so good to finish, doesn't it?

How lovely to have fresh tomatoes to pick without having had to do the work of planting and weeding them!

Ah, tomatoes! Just love 'em?

I'm thankful that all my tomatoes are producing lots of tomatoes! And I'm thankful for internet access so I can chat with my husband while he's out of the country!
