Bookish Thankfuls

You know, thankful lists don't necessarily have to be centered on your week. Here's an idea: name ten books you are thankful that you read. I'll go first:

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

Mrs. Piggle Wiggle by Betty MacDonald

Little House In The Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder

And Ladies Of The Club by Helen Hooven Santmyer

A Is For Alibi by Sue Grafton

A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith

The Egg And I by Betty MacDonald

A Bargain For Frances by Russell Hoban

Ramona The Pest by Beverly Cleary



Eight of the ten on this list led me to other books by the same author, so these ten titles represent dozens of books, and a little bit of each of these have helped to make me who I am now.

April Is The Cruelest Month

Here are ten things to be thankful for in April:

Daylight Savings Time comes back.

The grass turns green.

Tulips.

Lilacs.

Peeps.

Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

Sunny days.

Can start wearing capris again.

Ditto flip flops.

Snow.

Wait, what?

Thankful for snow? In APRIL?

When you teach 2-3 year olds, a surprise snow is a fun opportunity to bundle up, go out on the playground, and catch snow flakes on your tongue (or, as a few kids did, just eat snow right off the playground equipment with or without using your hands).





There are thankfuls in the smallest of moments. Find yours and and link up with us. The Ten Things of Thankful blog hop is now live!

Back In The Saddle

Carry On, Carry On

Your Ten Things of Thankful Hostess with the Leastest is going to be mostly out-of-pocket this weekend, as my son is getting married - eep!

So do me a solid and carry on. Write your thankfuls. Link them up. Visit every post that is linked up to our hop and comment. I'll pop in if and when I can. 

I appreciate every single one of you who is a part of this hop. Our numbers may come and go, but the core value of finding the thankfuls in life remain constant.

April's Sweet Month

 The following Mother Goose rhyme was originally published ca. 1843. The lack of little lambs in my April is a little sad, but other than that, this verse sums up the month fairly accurately:

In April's sweet month

When the leaves 'gin to spring

Little lambs skip like fairies

And birds build and sing.




If I DID have a little lamb that could skip like a fairy, it would surely make MY thankful list. What makes yours? Write them down, link them up. The Ten Things of Thankful blog hop is live!

Spring Is Sprung

Has spring sprung yet where you are? It has here in the Ozarks. Daffodils are in bloom, as are hyacinths and crocus. The tulips have big, fat buds on them. The Bradford pears are in bloom, and most of the trees are beginning to bud.

Spring is a beautiful time for renewal. Why don't you renew with us at the Ten Things of Thankful? It's so easy to find 10 things in any given week for which you can be thankful. Write them, link them, visit them.

Sunny Thankfuls

If I said I thought today was Saturday, it wouldn't explain how I didn't post this earlier today, would it...?

The weekend has already begun. What are you waiting for?! It's time for the Ten Things of Thankful!

I'm currently in Oklahoma City. The trees are budding. The weeping willows have honest-to-God LEAVES on them. Daffodils are crazy beautiful. And the SUN IS SHINING.

Link up with us, won't you?

Scissortail Park, Oklahoma City, OK
