Thankful Thursday

It has been in the high 50's and 60's every day for the past 5 days! Yesterday it got up to 70 degrees! The kids had so much fun playing outside in the mud and jumping in huge piles of snow. My house is a muddy filthy mess that I can't seem to keep up with, but the windows have been open every day since last Saturday and I am filled with joy as my house is filled with fresh air. I am so Thankful for muddy kids and fresh air.

It is only supposed to be 64 today, but I am happy with that! It is going to cool off a bit later this week, but these past few days have been a sign that spring is almost here. I think officially it starts in 9 days, but who is counting. I am Thankful for a record breaking, snow filled winter in which my children got to actually play in the snow, and will never forget. Now that the several feet of snow is melting leaving behind piles of dirty snow, I am ready for spring.

I love the smell of damp spring air. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I used to spend hours and hours running around in the woods playing along the creek...you know that damp dirt smell of a creek in the forest? I love that smell. I have been mentally planning my garden and deciding which veggies to plant where.

I love spring and I am so Thankful it is almost here.

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that my husband has a job, we have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.




So what are you Thankful for today? It is so easy to join in and tell everyone.

Here is how Thankful Thursdays works:

1. Post your Thankful Thoughts on your blog. Somewhere in your post please mention Welcome to the Nut House and http://ourhappynuthouse.blogspot.com/ so that your friends, family and visitors know where to find other Thankful Thoughts. You can also grab my Thankful Thursdays banner and link to that. Once you have done that you can come back here and add your post to MckLinky.

Not every one has a blog, so:

2. If you don't have a blog, you can leave a Thankful Thoughts comment in the comment section.

3. You can show your Thankful Thoughts any way you like, as a list, as a story, as one word, one sentence or just a picture.

Have fun!

Spring...something we can all be thankful for! Though it's only in the upper 30's here, it still feels warm and it's enough to melt the snow.

Sorry to have missed out on Thankful Thursday...2 weeks in a row. It has been crazy busy around here and I am trying to catch up!

I hope to catch up with you next week.

We have also been enjoying the beautiful temps and weather up until Wednesday evening. Oh Well, It is better than nothing.
