I'll Be Thankfuller If I Got The Coding Right

No frills, just here to say you don't always realize how much you have to be thankful for until you make a list of them.

So do that.

Make a list of the people, the events, the activities, the love, the life for which you are thankful and link it up with us at the Ten Things of Thankful weekly blog hop.

If I didn't get the coding wrong (sorry, Mimi!), the hop opens each weekend at 12:05 am on Fridays and ends at 11:55 pm on Sundays (and if you're wondering why the odd times, it's because I get confused whether midnight is am or pm and for what day).

It's Beary Dark

Is 7:30 too early to go to bed if you're over, say, 5 years old? Asking for a friend.

I think I would make a really terrific bear. I like to crawl into my den as soon as it's dark and not get up again until the sun is coming up, and I'm all for stuffing myself with berries and sleeping until spring.

The Ten Things of Thankful weekly hop opens tonight just after midnight CST and doesn't close until midnight CST on Sunday. Plenty of time to crawl out of your den and compose YOUR weekly thankfuls! Join us!

If I Can, You Can!

This evening, I was innocently making an apple crisp for a friend's birthday when OOPSIE I sliced my finger open. One trip to Urgent Care and more blood loss than I want to think about (because it makes me woozy to do so), and I'm all glued back together. 

Moral to story: if I can type this with one hand, you can write 10 thankfuls and link up with us.

Let's go!

Four. Pounds. FOUR POUNDS!

I was baking brownies for a friend's birthday tonight (not from a mix, but from scratch, because that's how I roll), and as I carried the sugar canister to my work space, it slipped out of my hands and four pounds of sugar ended up on the kitchen floor. The canister landed perfectly upside down, so every granule of sugar was on the floor, one side of the canister flush against a cabinet door, allowing the sugar to make a little mountain under the edge of the bottom cabinets.

Two cats scrabbled out of the kitchen when it hit the tile floor.

I said bad words.

I swept with a broom. I vacuumed. I mopped. I repeated. And every time I took a step, I STILL heard the crunch crunch of sugar under my feet.


But you know what? This is the worst thing that happened to me this week, and when I got over my mad, I realized I still had thankfuls for this:

1. I get to celebrate my friend Emily's birthday tomorrow at work.

2. She said she liked chewy, fudgy brownies, and I found a recipe that seemed ideal.

3. Even if they aren't the chewiest, fudgiest brownies ever, I mean, they're still brownies.

4. I had another bag of sugar in the pantry.

5. No mixer required to make the batter, so clean up was a bowl and a spatula. Oh, and four pounds of sugar from the floor.

6. The house smells divine.

7. The cats, terrorized by the sugar storm, didn't come back in the kitchen and bug me while I was cooking.

8. The batter was delicious; I won't know about the brownies until tomorrow afternoon, but I'm cautiously optimistic.

9. If the kitchen floor is still crunchy tomorrow, my husband will be the one who gets a turn to get more of it swept up, since the kitchen also doubles as his office and I will be long gone to work by the time he gets up.

10. Tomorrow is Friday. 'Nuff said.

No time to cry over spilled sugar! Join the Ten Things of Thankful instead! The link is open all weekend.
