Thankful Thursday (going solo)
Those of you that have been following the Thankful Thursday posts over at Sonya’s blog may have noticed that Sonya is no longer leading the charge. She did a great job at getting this thing going though and because some of us enjoy it so much we are going to go it alone. I decided to use this photo that I took a few years back of a sunrise in Florida for my Thankful Thursday posts since a sunrise signals a new beginning. So here goes my Thankful Thursday list;
I am thankful that my muscles are finally starting to hurt a little less. As you may or may not know, I started a new exercise routine this week called Body Pump. The class is mostly made up of women because the exercises aren’t tough enough for men to do. That’s what men say anyway. Two days after my first class, my arms are still sore. So I know the real reason men shy away from this class.
I am thankful for a few warm days that we have this week. It will give me time to get more wood staged for the next cold snap. That will be coming on Sunday by the way.
I am thankful that my car is running ok. It looks like my wife needs a new transmission but so far my car just needs a front end alignment. It gave me a scare though over the last few days. For about the last week, I have been hearing a metal sound when I turned a sharp corner. I was thinking that something in the steering was going and I dreaded the thought of that. Then I heard the sound again this morning and it sounded like it was coming from under my seat. I looked and there under my seat was a can of hair spray. My wife took my car to get the oil changed last week and apparently left her hairspray under the seat. Every time I turned sharply it would roll to the side and hit on the seat support causing a little metal to metal noise. I am so glad I found that.
Along with the transmission problems above I am also thankful that we have a friend who owns a transmission shop and will be checking things out for us. At least it is someone we can trust. And I am also thankful that we have an extra truck that my wife can drive until we get her car fixed.
I am thankful for all the blog friends who will be doing Thankful Thursday along with me this week even without our leader. Let me know if you are participating and I will check your list out too.
Have a great day,
