Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for July! 

I have used THIS July to get my circumstances in order!  I have worked on my home, my blogs, my teaching, my transition to a new job and generally made progress on ALL  of the projects that get put off until the summer.  Most of all I have rested!  I LOVE JULY!

Today I am thankful for my friends!

Just yesterday my sweet friend Pam who is packing and moving a
nd chasing a two year old chose to spend her time chatting with me.  I appreciate and am thankful that time that she took to be my friend.   I am also thankful for my friends who live here in town who are giving me a reason to quit "relax-working" so that I can have them over for dinner! 

Today I am thankful for my mom and dad.

I enjoy their company so much and just love talking with them. 

Today I am grateful for my brother.

Matthew has been my roommate for almost a year now and he is a GREAT roommate!  He is definately a quiet presence, but I appreciate his steady dependability and quirky sense of humor.  I'm thankful that SOMETIMES if I stay up late and if he gets home before 10 p.m. we get to chat. 

Today I am thankful for technology.

I know that technology can distance us from people if we aren't careful, but I love the way it helps me to stay connected with people that I would ordinarily not be able to keep in touch with.

Today I am thankful for crockpots!

I seriously don't know how I ever cooked without one.  Nowadays it's the only cooking that I do.  On the menu for tonight? with leftovers for tomorrow? How did people get things done without them?  BBQ Beef sandwiches, SMASH potatoes and baby spinach with poppy seed dressing! oh yeah and chocolate chip cookies.....
