My KitchAid mixer and my washing machine. So glad I have both of those! Also, my PT Cruiser. I'm very grateful. :-)

What am I THANKFUL for?

My Espresso Machine . . . how did I ever live without it?

My BIG Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer . . . oh how I could have used one 22 years ago when I had 3 babies in cloth diapers (and 6 dirty little kiddos at home). I did get it in 2004, though, when I still had 9 kids at home.

My Wheat Grinder . . . nothing better than fresh ground whole wheat flour (in pancakes, bread, rolls).

My iPhone . . . seriously, how did I ever live without it. I had NO IDEA how much I would use a smart phone when I finally got one last year.

Wishing . . . I had a gas fireplace. Oh how nice that would be on cold winter mornings (to sit by with my cup of hot peppermint mocha).

Hope your day is BLESSED! Enjoy the SUNSHINE!

:) :) :)

laptop. coffee pot. rice cooker. crock pot. If I had to live in a box and could have those 4 things I'd manage. LOL. (providing the box has outlets)
We live in an amazing time, with such wonderful conveniences. >trying not to take things for granted<

I'm stopping by from MamaKat as well (but I did the 5 Fictional Friends option). Anyway--what about a GPS? I haven't seen anyone give props to the thing that can help you find the nearest Target no matter where you are in the world.

We do live in a world of conveniences. My kids are amazed that I went to school learning to "type" on a typewriter. Today, I am thankful for the computer and internet. Easy to write, easy to spell, easy to find information... just a click of a button!
