Because Covid cases are still high in our area, almost everyone where I work is still working remotely. However, I went into work today for a meeting, which was really weird. It’s been over a year since I’ve been there longer than an hour.

It was kinda nice to see folks in person whom I haven’t seen in so long. I’m thankful for the slow dip back into in-person work. And for some really thought-provoking conversations.

We spent the day junking and I found an old settee really cheap. Whoop! I’m going to clean it up, recover it and sell it to my sister. Ha!

I’m thankful for the fun diversion today. It’s been a long week and I’ve been stressed lately, so Patrick has been good at getting me out of the house for a little bit the last couple of days.

It also helps to have these silly guys hanging with me.

Our deck is finished! The guys actually finished yesterday but I didn’t get a picture. And the high temperature yesterday was not that high. Something like 28F. I felt bad for them, but they wrapped things up in half a day and never complained.

The size of this thing is ridiculous. I told Patrick it was a party deck and he needed to find more friends to invite over. He said it is just the right size for him. Alone.

I’m thankful it’s complete, but I’m more thankful that the contractor did a great job. Spring can come anytime now.

I left the house today! And I visited with a couple of friends today. One had texted me that she was looking to get rid of some items and thought I might want to look at them for my vintage booth, so I stopped over this morning. It had been months since we saw each other in person, so after loading my car with the items I decided to take, we caught up over coffee and apple cider donuts. Mmmm. We also compared hair because she had recently decided to stop coloring hers. We are almost twins!

After I left her house, I stopped by my friend Ann’s to drop off a couple of things I had for her. (I didn’t take a picture.) Of course, I had to stay a bit to chat and she ended up having a couple things for me to take for my booth as well. What?! I’m grateful for friends who are supportive of my ventures, but I’m even more grateful for the friendship of these two for over 20 years.

Speaking of my booth, I brought a few Valentines themed items there later today. To date, I’ve sold 4 items. It’s not a lot, but it’s also not zero. Yay! I’m thankful for that.
