Gratitude

It was a really wonderful five days off work. I know I need to hit the ground running. start my work day early, but I actually am feeling energized and ready to tackle what is thrown at me this week. I am leading a 1/2 day retreat with my team Thursday, focusing on three parts-;) implementing 2019 well, 2) planning for 2020, and 3) forward thinking about how our team want to fit over the next three year's in shaping the priorities for our division. It is a tall order, but a good opportunity to get the five us on the same page in the new fiscal year and be able to pitch some proposals to the other three members of our leadership team, including my boss. 

On the home front, I already wrote about my relaxing 4th of July, no extended family other than my mother-in-law at the cabin, and DH's aunt and her daughter's family at the small cabin. I spent Friday afternoon with DD1, who unexpectedly was able to leave work even earlier than she thought and was home in the early afternoon. My work time ended up being play time, and we checked out the new brewery in town. I already had with DH a few weeks ago, so knew what I was going to have, not being a fan of the IPA's or overly dark ones.. DD1 tried all eight in a flight plus 2 sampler. She had a pint of her favorite and I joined her for another. Supper was  simple nachos and guacamole, followed by just some good conversation. She hung out with her sister all morning Saturday, and then we had a family picnic at my sisters. I am so grateful for what I have in my life right now. 

On that vein, here is DD1's new video for her year long project based on the book, How to Train and Elephant. She and DD2 explored an old mill ruins and local waterfall for the background footage. You'll get a glimpse of DD1 as her helper in a few of the shots. I hope you enjoy, and I f you do, give her  thumbs up and leave her a comment!  Have a wonderful week filled with gratitude for the things you care about.
