Over on her blog, my sister Cyberpace Sarah is staging a protest over Christmas marketing once Halloween has ended. I hope you know by now that I consider Thanksgiving my favorite holiday — even if I can’t finish an apron. Cyberspace is suggesting we start naming our thankful things.
She is the smart one,* so let us jump on her bandwagon of thankfulness — her harvest wagon of thankfulness, if you will. Here are ten things I am thankful for today.
1. I am not a prairie pioneer girl tucking into my sod hut for winter!
2. My Tassimo single cup coffee maker delivered not one, but two tasty lattes to me this morning!
3. My family is healthy! (I suppose this should have topped coffee . . .)
4. My eye surgery was a success! Thank you 21st century!
5. My husband rocks!
6. I can laugh at myself! See yesterday’s post.
7. One week from today, we will be sitting down to some tasty turkey!
8. I did not have to find space in my freezer for a whole lot of venison this week! Now, I know some friends and loved ones are thankful that their freezers are full of venison, but I think it’s okay if we are thankful for different things.
9. Caribou coffee now uses real chocolate in their drinks!
10. I found a photo from this summer in which all the children were smiling to use for our Christmas photo! Wait . . . am I mixing Thanksgiving and Christmas?
*I am supposed to be the pretty one. I think we share the title . . . cheesy smiles and all.
