It’s that time again for expressing gratitude for a week well gratituded!

  1. Thanksgiving Zoom with family on Wednesday made our more than a week. It was so great to see mama as it’s been maybe a year, due to pandemic stuff.
  2. Thanksgiving dinner was well received. Definitely losing one pie recipe but thankful I could at least try making it. The other pie and the dressing were successes. Well, and the other stuffs too. Grateful we had the means to make this dinner. I remember a time when it took all I had to create a Thanksgiving meal.
  3. The Angel Card Project is coming up and we need help. I am grateful to help with the project. It’s pretty easy. Would you like to help, too? Here is the Angel Card Project Link.
  4. Heart Beats anthology is getting a lot of contributors. We can always use more HINT HINT
  5. Daughter is getting to work more hours due to the season.
  6. One of my clients was able to get two books to best seller ranking and I helped.
  7. Decorations are up for Christmas. Daughter did most of it, as is her preference and then we pitched in for this and that. It looks so festive in our home.
  8. There are leftover for at least 3 days so I don’t have to cook. I am grateful for that and the microwave.
  9. I don’t like to shop except for necessities and I still like to hurry that run. So, I am grateful that the needs are less for more.
  10. You and this is my invitation to you to join us for TTOT. What are your thankfuls? You can go to this blue box and click and add your post. It’s just that simple. Right?

Ten Things of Thankful – November 20 2020

Good Morning! Welcome to TTOT So, let’s hop to it!

  1. Heat! Yes, we finally turned it on. And I am so grateful. Since we also scraped car windows for the first time of the season, it’s official that we need some heat.

2. Hot Chocolate! It seems so popular from reports last week, that I decided to serve you all a cup this morning. I have a little secret. I sometimes mix hot cocoa mix with my coffee and have a delicious mocha java. Don’t judge me! It is delicious.

3. Daughter is working and made her first big sewing project. She has been sewing masks and scarves. Well, she wanted to make an apron for her friend. I have an apron I am fond of, so we used it to make a pattern with a nice roll of pattern paper given to her by a friend. So, now she has a pattern for more aprons. It’s so adorable! It has sewing machines all over it for her friend to use as a sewing apron. And big, deep pockets. Here is a picture.

4. The sun is shining and the rain has let up.

5. My beloved is going to try S’Mores for the first time tomorrow.

6. The Angel Card Project is ramping up. Here is a link to tell about it. We have been doing it for so long that I can’t remember when we started.

7. Our family member is healing well post hip surgery and may get to go back to her apartment by Christmas.

8. GPS because I have been going to unknown how to get there places and it is a huge time saver.

9. People who get it.

10. You! Hey, do you want some cocoa? Egg nog? I had to ask about egg nog because my dear, late sister who would have been 70 this week-loved egg nog. How I wish I could go get her a carton right now. Come share your thankfuls. Have a blessed week.

Ten Things of Thankful – November 13 2020

Can you even believe it is already November 13! Of course, being it is Friday the 13th is supposed to be scary, but I am not going to worry. Instead, I will be thankful. And with that, let’s have a bit of TTOT!

  1. Time – there is more time these days to reflect and renew.
  2. Peace – I live near a fire station, so that lends to more siren noises, day and night. Also close by is a hospital. I have noticed there are less sirens blaring. Is it because people are driving less and there are fewer accidents? I am not sure. But I notice it.
  3. Between times – this is the between time of year, and I know I mentioned it before, but it warrants another gratitude moment because there has been no turning on of heat, thus far.
  4. Reflection – with Thanksgiving plans changing this year and eating at home, this leaves us time to reflect and not rush about. We will miss spending this holiday with extended family, but it is just not to be.
  5. Health reports – We have a good report on our family member who is recovering from a broken hip and surgery.
  6. Fabric – this is a gratitude for daughter who worked on a downsizing project with her friend and earned a basketful of fabric.
  7. Crock Pot – is my best friend in the kitchen these days as we enter soup and stew season.
  8. Changes – as I went on my walk this morning, I noticed many changes with the leaves falling, being cleaned up and falling again, the aftermath of the rain, the beginning of a new season to come, and time to still enjoy this one.
  9. Coffee – because I can be thankful for this java delight and my family is grateful, I am sure, that I have said delight.
  10. YOU – what are your thankfuls? How about joining us or adding in the comments. Have a hot beverage and donut with me…
