This Thankful Thursday post is short as half my week kind of went by in a blur.  I hope yours wasn’t so blurry. 1.  My father-in-law died so half the week was spent dealing with the tasks involved with all of that.  The meeting with the funeral director the day after went well.  A couple […]

Thankful Thursday – September 22, 2016

I don’t see the sun shining this Thankful Thursday.  But it’s still a great day – in the low 80’s and not hot at all.   Unfortunately, there’s been a few stressful moments over the past week. 1.  We’ve had some kind of infestation of spiders of sorts in our area.  I’m seeing a couple different […]

Whoosh!  Another Thankful Thursday week gone just like that!  Sure seems that way every first part of the month. 1.  Thank goodness my part-time job got changed one work day, or I would have had to work 7 days in a row between both jobs!   It was disappointing enough that I had to ‘labor’ on […]

Today is my first Thankful Thursday post of a new month.  I can’t believe we’ll be into the fall season in a few weeks 🙁  I know some people welcome the fall colors and the cooler temps, but I don’t.  I appreciate fall but to me it just means winter is coming.  And ya’ll know […]

I missed blogging last week’s Thankful Thursday post for two reasons.  I was so busy – doing the same thing that I’m doing this week with not much time for anything else – so I really had nothing much to post.  I had one day scheduled to work in between 2 sets of three days […]
