When Negative Is A Positive!

What kind of week have you had? Was it a "WOO HOO, I'M SO THANKFUL!" week, a "This is going to take a lot of soul searching to come up with a thankful list" week, or something in between?

And hey, it's possible to have ALL THREE IN THE SAME WEEK.

Example: I was exposed to someone with Covid. I missed two days of work during my quarantine time, which was a mixed bag because it's fun to have a couple of bonus days off, but I was quarantined and couldn't go anywhere or do anything but clean house. And my own Covid test results were negative.

Write your list and join us! We don't care if they're big, little, or in between; we just enjoy having you be part of a group of bloggers who know thankfuls are with us in so many different ways!


Negative!

Thankfuls Everywhere

 Y'all, there are ALWAYS so many things in a sometimes ugly world for which we can be thankful.

Clean laundry.

Kitty purrs.

A bowl of cereal before bed to stave off a rumbly tummy.

Comfy shoes.

A new toothbrush.

Moms.

Chips and salsa.

A good book you can't put down.

Saturday morning cartoons.

Making lifelong friends through blogging.

Join us this week and every week with the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop and see how easy it is to find the thankfuls in your life. 

And don't forget to call your mom.

It's That Time Again!

This is the very last weekend in March. Can you believe it?!

If you haven't joined us at the Ten Things of Thankful yet this year, what are you waiting for? We are a caring community of bloggers who would love to have you become part of our weekly hop. The link is live Fridays from 12:05 am CDT to Sundays at 11:55 pm CDT. (Why not midnight to midnight, you might ask. Well, because I get confused with the AM and PM and does it mean midnight or noon and decided to cut my losses and go with five minutes after and five minutes before.)

Write your Ten Things about ANYTHING. Your team advanced in the NCAA basketball tournament (why yes, yes, they did! WOO PIG SOUIE! GO HOGS!)? Flowers blooming? Survived another week at work (give me another day to know the answer to that)? Thankfuls come in all shapes and sizes!

Link up with us below!

Brrr! It's Spring!

 A week ago, there was snow on the ground. Today, it was nearly 80 degrees.

And that, folks, is spring in the midwest!

How about where you are? Snowflakes or daffodils? Or both, like here?

Can you find thankfuls in the change of seasons?

Write them down and link them up with us this weekend! The Ten Things of Thankful blog hop link is below.

Yeah, That's It. Supply Chain.

Guess which blog host fell asleep Sunday evening and missed the deadline to post a Ten Things of Thankful...? THIS ONE.

Going to work at 6:45 am is making me sleeeeeepy!  

Here's a plan: don't wait until Sunday night to write that weekend TToT post! You, too, may fall asleep and miss the deadline to link up, and you'll miss out on the fun that way.

See you at the hop. On Friday. Maybe Saturday. Not waiting until Sunday THIS week!

Weekend Winter Weather Thankfuls!

Had it and got beloved snow days? Write about it!

Gonna get it and planning to watch it snow (or sleet or freezing rain) all weekend and reflect? Write about it!

It's sleet, not snow. Through the window

Through Rain, Hail, Sleet, or Snow

Yesterday, we experienced all four seasons in one day.

The temperature got up into the upper 60s, but the wind was ferocious and blew in thunderstorms, a tornado threat, and then freezing rain, sleet, and snow.

Very funny, Mother Nature!

The weather is going to be erratic and wildly unpleasant for a large swath of the US over the next couple of days, so if you are affected, then what better time to snuggle under a blanket and tap out a Ten Things of Thankful? If you are somewhere enjoying delightful weather, then go ahead and gloat. We can live vicariously through you.

It Done Got Me

 Y'all.

Despite all my precautions, I tested positive for Covid last weekend, and it has been a little rough! I didn't get around to visit posts, let alone write one of my own, but I'm hoping I'll make it this weekend.

In the meantime, stay safe! Wear your mask. Get vaccinated and boosted, if you haven't already. Minimize peopling. And join us at the Ten Things of Thankful hop this weekend!

My crack nursing team....

I Did It In The Dark

 It’s 1 am. Forgot to write a little post for linking up this weekend, so since I can’t sleep anyway, why not do it the hard way and write it on my phone…?

I’m thankful for my iPhone, even as old and crappy as mine is. Can you just imagine doing this on a flip phone?

By the way, too lazy to put on my glasses as I struggle with this in the dark. How am I doing? 

Writing your post will be a lot easier than my experience tonight. Try it and see!

This weekend’s Ten Things of Thankful is liiiiive.

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....

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?
