#30DaysofThanks

Bandwagon; I'm here.

Let me tell you, with the week I've been having - this will be one of the best bandwagon's I'll jump on all year.  
Counting blessings and giving thanks makes a difference.  
I dare you to try.

I mean, all of the cool kids are doing it.  ;)

....................

Day 1 - Sale barn planning.
Stuff is about to get real.  We're down to finalizing a contractor, moving dirt, tearing out fences, burying power lines and figuring out how to make parking.  More to come...but I'm thankful that we work for a family who has vision and we are thankful to be a part of the Double M Ranch crew.

Day 2 - Rain.
Cleansing, drenching, dust settling, rain.  Yes - it made me go find my raincoat, and I didn't exactly love doing chores in it - but it is November, and we do need the moisture.

Day 3 - Time to prep for the auction.
If you live locally, join us Saturday, Nov. 9 at the Hermiston FFA Alumni auction for a great evening - Tri-Tip dinner, silent & live auctions with over $20,000 of items and more.  And it all goes to help FFA kids in our community.


Day 4 - This blog post.  
I needed a reminder in a week that has been shaping up to be about as chaotic as they come.

Day 5 - L1
Lindsay is a friend who would swim through sharks, tackle piles of laundry and then picture families with you.  (Well, maybe not the swimming thru sharks....but if you ask me, piles of laundry are WAY scarier!)  Love my sweet friend and looking forward to spending time with her on Monday as we capture our own families, and others.



Day 6 - A new dishwasher.
I don't have it 100% installed yet, but it's not on fire, and someday (hopefully soon) I will have figured out how to connect the water supply to it without a puddle of water forming on my kitchen floor.

Day 7 - El Clinton.

He is the best thing that ever could have happened to me, and I am so proud to be his wife.  Our relationship brings me more joy each day and as cheesy as it sounds - I am so thankful for him.

....................

So there's week one.  Will you join me in giving thanks?

It's not too late to jump on the Bandwagon!

  1. Darcy,
    Good Luck with planning and sale barn building. HUGE project that will add a lot to the Double M.

    Glad you got needed rain. We are still wet. The rancher and his Dad tried to haul hay yesterday. The did fine in the morn. The warmer afternoon proved to make the ground too soft for the semi.

    I hope you enjoy your new dishwasher!

    Family and Friends, what would we do without them? Life can be a challenge and we need all the support we can get. We also need them to celebrate life with!
