#30DaysofThanks - Week 2

I don't know where November has gone, but this month has been FLYING! 

Day 8 - Tennis shoes.
I don't normally wear tennis shoes when I'm {out in public}.  It's probably because my tennis shoes are normally covered in cow crap, because that's what I wear on the ranch.  (I don't ride, so I don't need boots for that and I like my feet to be light.  I'm weird like that.)  Anyway - earlier this summer while Clint was judging a fair in Boise, I had some time to kill in Costco and I stumbled across a pair of tennis shoes that I've somehow been able to keep clean.  I was so thankful for them on this Friday, as we moved tables, set  up spaces and chopped veggies in preparation for the next day's auction.

Day 9 - Volunteers. Sponsors. Bidders. Supporters.
Speaking of auctions, this one wouldn't have happened without any of the people noted above and I am so thankful for them.  This was my first year as the Auction Director for the Hermiston FFA Alumni, and I quickly realized that the task was bigger than initially realized.  But with the grace {lots and lots and a few more heaps of grace} from everyone I got to work with, we pulled it off.  Emphasis on the WE.  A great team of people showed up, worked their butts off, raised their bidder number and helped coordinate a really fun evening, that raised over $20,000 for our alumni group.  Those funds will be used to support the FFA program at HHS, and I couldn't be more thankful to be a part of a group of people who take as much pride in what they do to support ag.

Day 10 - Naps.
I needed one.  Badly.  And after loading a trailer load of panels he bought last week, Clint dropped me off at the house and gave me the chance to have one.  I woke up three hours later at 6 pm to Jesse sitting in our kitchen visiting with Clint. 

Day 11 - Our Veterans.  And freedom.
We are so blessed to live in the land of the free, and home of the brave.  In our home, we don't take lightly this freedom, and are so thankful for our active military and veterans and the bravery they show.  Thank you.

Day 12 - Diet Pepsi.
Just saying. ;)

Day 13 - Meetings & a finished editing session.
I keep all of my reminders on the calendar on my phone, and I love when I can swipe a task off that's been finished.  Plus, we finalized details on the sale barn order - look for a Cool Desert Beige building to be delivered to the ranch in early 2014.  And I finished up editing the Proudfoot family's session from last weekend - such a kind family that I enjoyed getting to meet in person this weekend!

Day 14 - Compliments.
A kind word can really make someone's day.  I'm so thankful for the people in my life who are supportive, and on this day really made my heart feel full with kind words.

My cup runneth over.

I hope yours is too!


  1. Excellent list, Darcy!

    Good shoes are essential. Have you tried on a pair of the Twisted X Boat shoes? They are awesome.

    Congrats on the Alumni FFA Auction. $20,000+ is amazing! Good Luck with the FFA Auction Saturday night.

    Naps are always a good thing.

    I agree we are fortunate to have so many good men and women protecting our safety and freedoms. I am thankful for our service men and women, Veterans and their families.

    I am a cappuccino drinker and what would we do if we couldn't give someone a nice compliment.

    Happy Weekend, Darcy.
