MJP Gratitude Challenge

Every Saturday I host a gratitude challenge. I share something that I am grateful for, and encourage you to do the same!

It’s sort of summer in California all year long, but here in the Northern part, the SUMMER is very noticeably here now. We’re having a high of 105 today, and it’s going to be in the three digits until Tuesday (at least.)

At the beach.

We’ve been going back to the habits we had the last time we lived in the area, doing everything we need to do early early, or just before bedtime. Yesterday we went to see our horse at 8pm and the temperature was 109 Fahrenheit ! I do like the California weather, but I am very grateful that I don’t have to be outside during the hottest part of the day.

Hanging out with Ariel in the shade.

As always, I hope that your week have been filled with good things. I would love it, if you would join myย Gratitude Challenge! Write about something you are grateful for, and tag your postย MJP Gratitude Challenge.

Have an amazing Saturday!

  1. That is certainly some warm weather there. Hope you and your daughter, and all the horses, are staying the shade and keeping cool. That kind of temperature sounds extreme, and I hope it’s not humid where you are. I am every bit the summer girl, but on warm days like these in Australia, I prefer to do as little as possible and just enjoy the simple things like reading and listening to music.

    Such a lovely, sweet shot of your daughter. It looked like she had a great time outdoors and she must love those sunglasses and that floppy hat. Have a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love the photography of your darling daughter — my favorite part is your smiling reflection in her sunglasses. It’s an image that makes me smile. Thanks for encouraging me to reflect on all of the things that I have to be grateful for. ๐Ÿ™‚ Kara

    • Thank you for your kind comment! My daughter LOVES going to the beach. Days like today, I’m very grateful that we have a beach nearby. We spent last summer in Nevada’s desert, without going to any beach/pool during the whole summer! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. It’s been warm here too today. Not quite as warm as they were saying but they have extended the heat advisories.
    Yes, you really have to plan when it’s hot. I got up at 6:30 today and left for Mt Shasta to do my shopping and was back around 9:45! Then I’ve been mostly inside the rest of the day.

    • That sounds smart, to get the shopping done before it gets too hot. I really should be going to our horse now…and I should grout to the garden, and clean my truck before it gets too hot. I better get going! Have a great day!
