Day 304/365: Oct 31, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • A caring husband who listens to my potty training tallies.
  • Revisiting an old favorite recipe and adding spice for a touch of autumn.
  • Nobody knocking on our door on a day we choose not to “celebrate.”

Day 296/365: Oct 23, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • A beautiful tropical view from our living room window, every day.
  • Getting photos printed while the toddler plays on the playground.
  • The flavorful crunch of a homemade falafel paired with the creamy zing of dressing.

Tropical view helps us forget the tropical humidity.

Day 285/365: Oct 12, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • Trying Bakwa for the first time and loving it!
  • Realizing my niece and nephew were having too much fun in Sunday school to leave “on time.”
  • Using our good oven to crank out enough pizza for 8 hungry eaters.

Bakwa! Like the goodness of jerky and bacon put together in a sweet and salty pork treat 🙂

Day 251/365: Sept 8, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • A sunny & exhausting walk being rewarded with a good buy, a cold treat, a slight breeze, a fun play ground, and aircon at the end.
  • Tasty and generous cooks as neighbors.
  • Seeing the involuntary, sleepy smile of a 3 week old.

These tasty shrimp were cooked up by my talented neighbor.

Day 235/365: Aug 23, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • Finding real bacon 1/2 off for quick sale. (In Singapore!? Unreal.)
  • Trying not to laugh [and failing] at G’s method of banana eating.
  • Not needing to go out in the pouring rain, and staying home instead.

He’s used to “finger bananas”… we gave him a full length banana. He had a little bit of a hard time. :p

Day 228/365: Aug 16, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • Generous friends gifting grapefruit.
  • Remembering to bring our fancy blue bags with us to IKEA.
  • My husband taking time to help me put up pictures.

I can’t imagine why we haven’t had this tasty fruit recently… as in, not in the last few years!?

Day 227/365: Aug 15, 2014

I’m thankful for:

  • Take-out that includes rice for the rice-lovin’-toddler.
  • Gideon helping me clean up his toys without being asked.
  • The end of a long work week for my husband.

Mmmm. Tasty lunch.
