Thankful Thursdays

Thankful Thursdays are Back! 

Last year, you'll remember that I wanted to remind people to be thankful. For their health, family, friends, ability to knit, intelligence, freedom... whatever you need to be thankful about: this is the month.

So, join me in being thankful today: leave a comment on this post and tell me what you are thankful for (links to blogs accepted as well).

I'm thankful for:
1. my job. I know I did this one last year too, but I've been here 14 months and it feels like "home" and I'm eternally grateful every other Friday, when they deposit my check. Not only does my job provide PC and I with the ability to pay our bills, splurge on some yarn/cds/books, but we have been able to re-start the 401k and savings account addition cycle (as opposed to the subtraction cycle...).

2. my health. 2010 was a scary year for my health: new diagnosis, new medicines, new diet... i'm doing well, and while I could be doing better (and yes, PC, I know: going to the gym), I'm not doing bad. And, PC and I have learned that we are enablers to each other, so we are trying to be VERY aware of not only our own activities, but also each other's. 

3. personal time off (PTO). I'm taking a day tomorrow b/c I need it. I just need a day off. I'm not running errands or cleaning the house. I'm not doing anything but recharging my batteries and drinking tea, while knitting. :) 


  1. Great list. I'm a big fan of days off without anything scheduled! Enjoy tomorrow!

  2. I love your list. I am thankful for blogs to read that entertain and enlighten. I'm also thankful that they help me procrastinate a bit in getting done those things that always need doing.

    I am grateful for friends. At least in my case, some of them became more my family than just friends. And I am grateful that I can have them in my life!
