Thankful Thursday

It’s my first Thankful Thursday as host. I kind of just grabbed the thing out of Greg’s hands as he was headed out the door. I hope that’s ok with everyone! If you want to participate you can list your thanksgivings in the comments, or you can post them on your blog & enter the link to your post in Mr. Linky below.

What am I thankful for?

·       Gorgeous blue skies and days that warm up to the 50s.

·      Girl Scout Cookies. Specifically Tag-a-longs (chocolate & peanut butter goodness). Oh, did you want one? Too late!

·         That the tattered flag outside my window (which I wrote about here) was replaced this week! I totally think they replaced it because they saw me taking a picture of it which made them actually look at it for a change. I’m snapping my suspenders in self-importance. Or I would be if I were wearing suspenders. It’s not the 80s again is it? Because I wore suspenders in the 80s…

·         I’m so very thankful for all the comments on this post. Every one meant a lot.

·         This Thursday is my birthday! I’m speeding out of the mid-40s & heading straight for the late -40s. Dr. M & I are being very laid back about it. I had flowers & candy & a very sweet card on Valentine’s Day so there’s no need for any more frippery. Although perhaps Mexican food could be part of our weekend plans. Hint hint.

·         Sunday was Absalom Jones Sunday at my church. He was the first African-American priest ordained into the Episcopal Church in the United States. Dr. M gave the homily, talking about the Underground Railroad in Ohio. He did a great job. The choir sang a special, Soon Ah Will be Done, and I had a small alto part in a trio for one part of the song (the weepin’ and a wailin’ part). I think we did pretty well for our size and level of musical ability (and the fact that we don’t have any tenors or basses). And while I’m thrilled that the day was a success, I’m mostly glad that we’re done now!

·         I have next week off from work! It’s Dr. M’s spring break. We’re spending part of it here in Ohio & part in NC. I plan to see crocuses (or is it crocusii?) at my dad’s house – so you get right on that Daddy!

All right – it’s your turn. What are you thankful about this week?


  1. Oh, a very Happy Birthday to you! I hope you get that Mexican meal.

    I'm thankful that for my first week back to work after two weeks of sloth, things weren't too bad. Coulda been worse.

    I'm thankful that I need my sunglasses to drive later and later and later each day.

    That's a start for being thankful.

  2. Happy Birthday!

    I'm thankful that it's Thursday, the day every week I meet my best friend for supper at a restaurant. I'm thankful for such a grand friend.

  3. This Thursday? As TODAY????

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! that just calls for MORE Girl Scout cookies! :)

  9. I'm thankful that you picked up as host for Thankful Thursday!

    Happy birthday to you and may you enjoy your time off work.

  10. Happy Birthday! I'm not a fan of the Tag Alongs. Lose the cookie part and just give me the peanut butter and chocolate, you know? I like whatever lemon cookie my local Cookie Pusher has to offer. And store the Thin Mints in the freezer!

    Did you get your Mexican food? I hope so! (And if so,I hope one of your gifts was this.

  11. Aaaargh!!! Here's the missing Right Side of my parentheses!!


  12. You're thankful for Girl Scout Tag-a-longs. Ha! I'm thankful for the thin mints, and I came across a recipe for homemade ones yesterday. I'm thankful for that, too. If I ever get the nerve to make them (cuz when I start I can't stop) I'll post the recipe.

  13. Oh, and happy, happy birthday!

  14. Happy Birthday, Bug!!

    I hope you had a lovely, pleasant low-key day.

    Gosh, I'm thankful for so very many things but one thing I'm thankful for today is that our new lighting is being installed as I type :-)


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
