Guess What's Coming?

The temperature tonight is going down to 7ºF here*. That is not a thankful.

Know what IS a thankful?

Spring is only TWO MONTHS AWAY!!! 

Daffodils. Forsythia. Crocuses. Dogwood. GRASS. 


Two. Months. Away.

If that doesn't make you thankful, I don't know what does.

Sooo, if it doesn't, well, what DOES? Let me know! I have to know what's better than the prospect of spring! Write 'em, post 'em, link 'em. We're here all weekend.

*it took me a stupid long time to figure out how to type that degree symbol....

JUST Like Gravy

The Ten Things of Thankful blog hop is a lovely community of bloggers who have learned the importance of counting the thankfuls in their lives, no matter how big or small, and we would love nothing more for than for YOU to be a member of this community.

Think about your week. Write a list of ten things from your week for which you can be thankful Hopefully, the hardest part of this is narrowing your list down to only 10, but hey, we don't mind if you go over the number! The link is live every Friday at 12:05 am CST and ends every Sunday at 11:55 pm CST, so you have PLENTY of time over the course of the weekend to get that post written and linked up with us! Try it and see!

A Good Day To Start A Great Thing

Welcome to the first Ten Things of Thankful blog hop of 2022!  

Isn't this the BEST time for you to take a few minutes to jot down a week's worth of thankfuls and link them up with us? Because, in spite of a week of snow or ice or freezing temps or going back to work after the holidays or Covid, there are thankfuls in your world as well. For example:

~there was only about an inch of snow

~no ice under the snow!

~my Walmart snow boots kept my feet toasty warm

~as hard as it was to go back to work, seeing those sweet faces of my kiddos eased the pain

Okay, now it's YOUR turn. Link up your post with us and hop on over to visit the other posts as well. This weekend's Ten Things of Thankful is ready. Are you?

Here To Serve

The Ten Things of Thankful is here every weekend as an exercise to help us find the good in life. 

Some days (or years), it can be difficult, but they are always, always there.

We at the Ten Things of Thankful hope you will remind yourself of this by joining us at our weekly hop. The link goes live on Fridays just after midnight CST (unless I forget it's Friday, which I did this week) and closes just before midnight CST on Sunday evenings (NOTE: this is a change).

Start your new year by taking a few minutes every week to look back, note the things for which you can find thanks, throw them into a blog post, link it up with us, read the other entries, and revel in the fact that you can always find SOMETHING to put in a list, no matter how big or small it is.

Piece. Of. Cake.

And we love cake!

Happy New Year!

12 Days Of Christmas

Oopsie! Today is Friday, and I haven't posted the Ten Things of Thankful link yet, so I wrote a special tribute to the season and the day.

Welcome to my version of the Twelve Days of Christmas:

On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me

12 kinds of candy

11 loads of laundry

10 trips to Walmart

9 missing ornaments

8 rolls of paper

7 types of cookies

6 throw pillows

5 miles of lights

4 cats under foot

3 Christmas throws

2 kids who can't come

And 1 kid with Covid-19!

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!

Read All About It

The Ten Things of Thankful weekend blog hop is open! Get those pre-Christmas thankfuls written and post them with us, mmmkay? You have from Friday morning in the wee hours until Monday night. You've got this!

Now, y'all, here's the plan for NEXT weekend.

Knowing that not everyone celebrates Christmas, we will have a link posted for the TToT hop that opens on December 24 and ends on the 26th, but no worries if you aren't able to participate, whether you are a co-host or a weekly participant. Then get yourself geared up for the last hop of 2021 (and, in theory, the first one of 2022, since there's some overlap) and give us a post! It's a great way to end one year and begin another!

Get ready to rock and roll.
