Thankful Thursday...

I haven't done one of these in a long time so I figured that it was about time that one gets done & I remind myself to be grateful.

I am thankful...for runs to the cheese factory during lunch as I know that I'll be coming back with goodies to not only bring home but some to for myself & my co-workers to enjoy as an afternoon snack.  This trip, I even got beef sticks!  :)

I am thankful...that I don't have to deal with Trouble & all her crap on a daily basis.  My cousin, Jennifer, had to remind me of that when I went on a rant.  Typically, I'm the "voice of reason" for Jennifer but today, she was mine & that is another thing to be thankful for.  <--  TWOFER!!!!

I am thankful...for fun-size Simply Caramel Milky Ways.  They are SO delicious & I love them but my damn sensitive teeth can hardly stand a fun-sized bar without hurting.  So, I can have a small taste, at least.

I am thankful...that school is starting back up four weeks!  Awhoo hoo!  Back to normalcy!  I can go back to planning suppers as I know when Sunshine will be home (in the summer it's hard with her flying off to friend's).  Sunshine will be kept REAL busy.  We don't let her get real bored in the summer as we have her in gymnastics but with school comes schoolwork, gymnastics & dance.  No time to get in trouble!  Ha!

What are some things that YOU are 
thankful for on this Thursday?


  1. All are great things to be thankful for!

    1. I like to remind myself sometimes that there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. :)

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
