Gratituesday: The Perfect Day


Have you ever had one of those days?  A day that ends up being perfect and wonderful from morning to night?

Saturday was a day like that.

Matt was home all day. The weather was perfect and gorgeous. It was just one of those days. The kind that makes you sigh and smile with contentment and gratitude.

You know something that makes me really happy? Seeing all my men work hard. I love it. I love watching Matt work…and the boys working beside him. We spent a good part of Saturday afternoon working outside together getting our garden plots ready and planting potatoes….picking up leaves and sticks…cleaning up the yard.

We were all a delightful picture of filth by the end of the day. Ah…good and filthy…you’ve gotta love it.


There may have been a brotherly squabble or two during the day…but I seem to have blocked it out of my mind.


Mostly there was a lot of teamwork and cooperation.


Malachi was trying to scoop grass clippings with a shovel twice his height. He finally laid it down and started putting the grass onto the shovel with his hand.


We ended the evening with juicy grilled steaks that we were able to eat outside at our picnic table. Then we played a couple innings of baseball. I hit a homerun…and ran around the bases without smacking into a pole…catching my hair in tree branches or falling on my face. Ah, the perfect ending to a perfect day. :)

    It looks like a great day. I love seeing you enjoying dinner outside. So excited to start doing that here.

    Your boys are such good workers. I am impressed with their teamwork. I’m sure any possible squabbles were just a figment of your imagination. :)

    It looks like you all had a great day, I am longing for some nice warm weather but it’s been cool and rainy the past few days here in Kentucky. Your boys are adorable!

    You played with the boys! They must have been so excited. (Didn’t you post that you don’t “play” with them very often?)
