Gratituesday~just a little more summer

I am starting to get very excited about our upcoming school year. Our curriculum is here, I have been spiffing up our school room and the kids are ready to dig in. It is gonna be a great year!

But, I am also very thankful that we have just a little bit of summer left to enjoy. Summer is such a care-free time. I still hold dear beautiful memories of my childhood summers-Popsicles, riding my bike, playing outside until dark, watermelon-seed-spitting contests, sparklers on the forth of July.

We are looking forward to a weekend of fun in the sun with family and friends this weekend. And, next weekend we are squeezing in one last summer camp-out at the beach. The weekend after that is Labor Day weekend, and we will be visiting family and celebrating our last official weekend of summer with style!

I am grateful that we have had the opportunity to do so many wonderful things this summer. We have visited beautiful places and spent sweet time with precious friends and family. What a blessing!

Can I ask you a question???

As I was cooking chicken nuggets for supper tonight, I started thinking about how wonderfully handy my tongs are. They really are an amazing invention...I seriously use them every day! They make turning sizzling nuggets a breeze! It got me thinking about kitchen appliances and gadgets that I can't (or just really don't want to) live without.

So, my question for you is, what is the one kitchen tool you just can't live without?
