Be Thankful

Here goes, 16 things to be thankful for in 2016 ... 

1 - Family: without their love and support my world would be much different
2 - Mike: well most days ;)
3 - Friends: the ability to make me laugh until it hurts and be there for me in all my life's ups and downs
4 - Indoor Plumbing: winter is coming ...
5 - Kindness: it must happen all the time
6 - Health: those surrounding me (and me) are in good health
7 - Coffee: some mornings wouldn't/shouldn't/couldn't happen without one/two/three cups
8 - My Sewing Machine: hand quilting would put a damper on my productivity

9 - Skinny Jeans: not the cut, but finally putting on those jeans you wore the last time you were "skinny"
10 - Creativity: what kind of world would we live in without creativity?
11 - Finances: finally being in a position to buy a house, even if the right one hasn't come along
12 - Snow Days - here is to the unexpected one day weekend, teacher perk
13 - Wine: the opposite end of the day to #7
14 - Fall Clothing: chunky sweaters and cords
15 - Podcasts - to fuel my knowledge and pass the sewing time
16 - Snooze Button: mornings are the worst

What are some things you are thankful for this year?


  1. The plumbing's been a big one for me this year. During winter (in Australia) the pipe from the meter to the house burst on the Friday night at the beginning of a long weekend. The plumber hooked up a garden hose from the meter so I wasn't completely without water. All I wanted was a hot shower and to be able to flush the toilet without having to use a bucket. I have a greater appreciation for running water now! All the best with your house hunting and congrats on fitting into your skinny jeans!

  2. I am thankful for my new niece who was born yesterday and texts and social media for keeping me connected with family to celebrate her birth. I hope you have a delightful and wonderful Thanksgiving!

  3. I am ALWAYS thankful for plumbing. Imagine living in an age without safe, drinkable running water and with all the problems that means.
