Yesterday was such a full day that I didn't have much computer time so I'm a day late with my Thankfulness.  But, since I try to find something everyday that I can be thankful I guess it doesn't matter too much.
We have so much to be thankful for here.  I have a happy, healthy family. We have a warm home, enough to eat and enough money left over to allow a few luxuries every now and then.
I'm thankful that my dear hubby and sons pitched in to clean the house on Wednesday while I was at work.  I15 did a grand job vacuuming!
I'm thankful that my baby girl, even though far away, was able to spend the holiday weekend with family out east.
I'm thankful that my parents are still with us and were able to come for dinner yesterday.  Mom baked the bread for the meal and brought pumpkin bars for dessert.
I'm thankful that my brother and sister-in-law came over for dinner- in spite of her pet allergies.  And they brought a fabulous butternut squash soup for the first course of dinner.
I'm thankful for good friends who consented to share the day with us.  Roger and Sharon (and Sharon's absolutely wonderful sweet potato pie) and Fred (who brought wine to share).
I'm thankful for lively conversation and many laughs.
I'm thankful that the cats decided that yesterday was NOT the day to decide to sleep on the dining room table!  And I'm thankful that the weather was nice enough yesterday (mid 60's!) that we could leave the dog outside during dinner and that he was well behaved!
I'm thankful that we have the means to provide a meal for our loved ones.
I'm thankful that I have a job that I love and wonderful co-workers.
I'm thankful that I am NOT shopping today!
And I'm thankful for all of you who come here to share our sometimes chaotic journey.

There is so much more,  but this is a good start.


  1. And I am so grateful for you, dear Judy...trudging along merrily, showing me how it's done.

    Sounds like your T-Day was grand. Mine was too--went to my brothers and my husband called several times from Wisconsin to check on me and tell me I am his beloved.

    Cold here today. Tonight may be the real end of the garden. I am canning turkey stock right now and getting ready to make some soup too.

    Gratitude is a great state to live in !

  2. This time ast yer was the start of my cancer journey so I am thankful that I have my health more or less and Judy, I am thankful for the support you gave me throughout the year. It helped more than you ( and others) will ever know.

  3. And I am very late in catching up on my favorite blog posts! What a wonderful Thanksgiving you had - it (to me) is the perfect day, with family, friends and good food. I am thankful that you share your chaotic journey with us!

  4. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
