Thankful Thursday #67
Hello everyone and welcome to Thankful Thursday. This is my first week doing this all by myself. I had a lot of help and encouragement in getting this set up which leads me to my first Thankful "Items" or should I say people.
I want to thank Sonya and Edie for helping me get started. I am not the most blogger literate person so it took a lot of cattle prodding to get me over several humps. Don’t worry the scars should heal from where they kept poking me but I admit that I deserved it and needed it. Hopefully all that is behind me now. Notice I said Hopefully. We will see!!!
I am thankful that we have some warm weather on the way. Despite the fact that I had more firewood than any previous year, our supply is getting a little low. It looks like we are going to make it but we by no means have a lot left.
I am thankful that my wife and youngest son chopped so much wood this past summer. It was nice not having to split it when the weather was cold. My youngest is still doing some wood splitting but we don’t “have” to which is nice. He just likes splitting wood. We split wood the old fashion way. With a sledge hammer and wedges. It’s great exercise. And speaking of exercises;
I am thankful for another great Body Pump class this week. As some of you know I switched from spinning to body pump because it gives me a better overall workout and also because the hours are better. Body Pump looks easy but it is harder than you can imagine. It is basically aerobics with light weights and it is tough. By the end of the hour, my arms are shaking and I can barely lift them much less the weights. Try it if you want a great workout. Most gyms offer it.
I am very thankful that I have some major work projects behind me now. I finished the roof which saved us around 2000 dollars. That was a biggie. I also got the tiller and the shredder running. My next project is to fix the transmission on the riding mower. Talk about a jack of all trades. I thank God that I have the ability to do all these things and more. God gives each of us special talents but for some reason he gave me more than my share.
