Thankful Thursday 2010
I am thankful for making it through another year and that I have a brand new year ahead of me that I pray is filled with lots of wonderful things. Although 2009 wasn’t the best year for us we did better than most.
I am thankful for this cold weather. Although I have to get up early every morning just to keep the fires going, and the fire building is taking the place of my morning workouts, this cold will be thinning out the mosquito and sand gnat populations. So hopefully this spring we will be able to enjoy the outdoors. You people from the South know what I am talking about.
I am thankful that I have enough wood to keep the house and greenhouse warm. We are planning on building another greenhouse soon so if you have any spare oak logs lying around give me a call. That is if it’s cut and split…and you deliver…for free. I can dream can’t I?
I am thankful that I still have a job. I still have two in fact and they are keeping us alive in this struggling economy. And even though my office isn’t all that warm it’s a lot warmer than the 25 degrees it is outside right now. I could have an outside job. That would stink. I am sorry if you don’t have a job or have to work outside.
I am thankful for the possibility that we might have snow tomorrow morning. I know the kids are hoping for a snow day. If we have one flake here in Charleston, they will cancel school. Once the word gets out that there is snow in the area people start driving like mad men. You can expect a rash of accidents even though none of it sticks. I think it is kind of like a shopper’s frenzy. People lose their minds.
Have a great day and please join us over at Sonya’s blog for Thankful Thursday.
