Windy weather...

Gets very windy here in the Palouse area.

Very windy.

Which brings me to my thankful list as I clean the same sticky floors two times/day.

Blown over port-a-potty!! Disgusting.

Last house being built in our 'hood and there's a port-a-potty on site.

Bad wind storm = tipped over King Potty.

Images of splattered matter up and down the sides.

Okay, I've grossed myself out even more. I will now scrub this blog with bleach, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide...

I am thankful it is not my job to clean tipped over port-a-potty.

Back to sticky floors.
Boys getting ready to attend a Cub Scout pack meeting. They wanted to show off their turkey neckerchief slide. There were two military guest speakers and the boys learned a lot about serving our country.

Thank you.

I get so overwhelmed when I think of how grateful I am to Veterans and anyone in the military. They are someone's son, someone's husband, someone's nephew...they are SOMEONE doing a dangerous job of keeping our way of life safe for the rest of us.

I pretty sure it's part being born when a war was going on in Vietnam, I am thankful and value safety, peace, and doing my best to show my gratitude by serving my family and community.

This is not about me.

This is about being aware of the sacrifices military men and women make so I can say what I want and go about my day as I want.

Thank you. Thank you.
