Thankful Tuesdays: As the dust settles

Whew! Last week, we moved back to our home, after the kitchen was more or less done up. There's was still lots of things to unpack, and the house was more or less a disaster:

And to top it off, our stuff from Germany suddenly arrived yesterday!

So I've just been trying to clean and unpack in between the regular chores and cooking. All of us are rather affected by the cupboard fumes and dust, even though we did a through cleaning of the place before the kids moved back. Most of us had allergic rhinitis, and the hubs ended up with sinusitis too, but thankfully everyone is getting better as the fumes slowly disperse over time. 

As the dust settles, and we try to ease back into a regular rhythm, I am just so thankful we have a place we can call home. We're thankful that we could bunk at my parents' place during the past two months. And I am grateful that the FIL is currently staying with us, and helps out with the chores and babysitting. He's been amazing, bringing the kids down to the playground every morning, helping to feed and bathe the boys, lending a hand with the cleaning.  

I am thankful for the little pleasures of home. Of ice cold popsicles on hot days, never mind the sticky floor that results afterwards. Of being able to do messy play and not worry about messing up someone's house.

I'm thankful for the little moments that make me smile.

What are you thankful for this week?
