Random Thankfulness

 I carried the camera around yesterday and recorded everything I was thankful for. The first thing yesterday morning, I was thankful that Mommy kitty showed up for breakfast. She hadn't shown up at her usual time and I was worried. Whenever the feral kitties come for a meal I am relieved to see them. The world is a big place and they are so little.

While clearing the clutter and packing it away in the sewing room I was thankful for all my projects in the works. They are all in the way now but they will be most welcome come January.

I am always very thankful that The Mister likes to help with holiday cleaning. He gets the places I never think about.

 I tried to be thankful about the three bathrooms I had to clean. I reminded myself some people don't have any.

I was more than thankful that I didn't break my crockpot when I dropped it on the floor. It has a big dent now but it still works.

 I am thankful for all the pretty glassware that my grandmother gave me so many years ago. This is where I always stop and have my holiday cry. I remember these pieces on her Thanksgiving table and I still miss her.

 I was thankful to have a spare minute to get those newly woven towels hemmed. I really wanted to put them in use for the holidays. I am also thankful for those clips. They work so much better than pins with woven things.

I was overwhelmingly thankful that we have a little grocery store down the street. I went there twice yesterday and I went through the same line three times picking up things I forgot.

 I was thankful that they still had flowers late on Wednesday. I always want flowers on my table but I never remember to buy them.

 I was thankful we have a Subway nearby. After all the food prep I didn't want to cook.

I'm thankful I live in a town where people dress up their homes for the holidays.

I don't live in North Beach but I am thankful I live close enough to take a Thanksgiving Eve stroll on their beautiful boardwalk.
Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Aww your neighbors TURKEY is great! Thankful for your understanding as your Daddio and MY sweet mom as they are in a similar phase in life.

  3. What a wonderful post! I popped in to see how you have been, I have missed you in the YST Ravelry group. Looks like life is busy and happy for you, Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I love this post, thank you so much for sharing!

    I know what you mean about your grandmother's dishes. I used to always "help" my dad make stuffing the night before Thanksgiving, and even though he has been gone for 40+ years, it gets me every single time while I'm doing it.

    Enjoy your day!

  5. That's a pretty good list - hope your day was fabulous!

  6. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Your Mommy cat looks a lot like our Ginger although Ginger has more black on her face.
