My week in gratitude

Wow, I don't know where this week has gone! I am thankful for the hilarious sight of lumbering Alfie chasing a lumbering bumble bee, for the peonies getting taller every day, for the new sandwich Ryan and I made up -- hummus and vinaigrette on whole wheat with orange pepper, cucumbers, tomato and feta cheese with olives on the side -- yum, I am thankful for the beautiful and uplifting spectacle of the Royal Wedding, for the hope and joy of it all and the lovely songs and sermon as well as the gorgeous dress, I'm thankful for the equally charming spectacle of the goldfinches and chickadees swooping in to feed at the feeder outside my window, I'm thankful that i found a little money in an envelope that I had forgotten I hid so that I can buy a new spring dress, and I'm thankful that the DVD's I ordered of Audrey Hepburn's Gardens of the World has come in so that I can watch it tonight while I recover from a migraine. So much to be grateful for -- and I must add that I am grateful that my family is all healthy and safe!
