Cameras, Cleaning and Coconut Oreos

Weekends aren't the same when you are self quarantined and the city is on lockdown.  Most weekends I look forward to hopefully getting out of the house and going to the park or finding a new trail.  But now the weekends look more like, me catching up on cleaning while David is working or hanging out on the patio because my doctors have asked me to stay home and stay away from anyone not living in the house with me.  I have been spending most of the day out back.  Because eating, reading and napping are all better outside.



Today I'm linking up with Lindsay from The Flynnigans, Charlotte from My Pixie Blog and Beth from Coffee until Cocktails.  Every Friday we share all the things that we are happy, grateful and thankful for!  Stop on over and see what everyone else is sharing today! Here is my list for this week.



  • All the cleaning.
  • The boys liking online school
  • A stocked kitchen.
  • Using my DSLR more.
  • A cozy patio.
  • Fresh cut grass.
  • Facetime with family.
  • Coconut Oreo Thins.
  • My neighbor family.
  • Being home with the boys.



Right now there are so many not so great things to remind us that we should be thankful for even the smallest blessings.  Its so easy to get swept up in the negativity and pain of what we are all going through.  But I hope that everyone is able to find some light in it all.  So many have lost their jobs, which will lead to them losing even more.  So many have gotten sick and many won't live.  It might not be ideal, but if you are healthy and home, you have something to be thankful for.

I will admit that even I am getting a littler stir crazy.  And that is saying a lot considering I hardly ever leave the house.  I actually miss going to the doctor.  But as of yesterday all my appointments have been moved to Telehealth.  If Im trying to see the positives, and I am, that is even better because now I don't have to ask someone to drive me to the hospital!  See, looking on the bright side.

Now, tell me something good!  Or bad, or anything.  I need some conversation about something other than Fortnight and boy stuff.  What are you thankful for this week?  Tell me whats keeping your spirits up!

Sending good thoughts and big virtual hugs!
