This is probably going to sound silly, but I parallel parked today when I visited the library. I was dropping off some books to donate, so I wanted a close parking place. The only one available required parallel parking.
I realize this is a skill most people learn when they are decades younger than I am. However, I have literally never before properly backed into a single-car space, then turned the front of the car so I would be parallel to the curb. And today, I did it.
Also? It got cold enough last night that there were no gnats at the girl’s bus stop this morning!
And … our neighbor has a couple bookcases sitting by the curb, free for the taking. My husband asked where I thought they could go. After some thought, I pointed out a couple places in the dining room. Is this ideal? No, but it’ll do for now.
So those are a few of the things I’m grateful for today. What are you grateful for?
