a simple thank you

thank you;
crock pot
 for the teriyaki chicken
that smells so good
while cooking slowly all day
filling the house with
amazing aromas

thank you;
coffee pot
for helping to
wake me up on mornings
when staying & burrowing underneath
 the covers
sounds so much more appealing 
than getting up to go for a 
 walk

thank you;
DVR
that i can tape project runway
 and not 
worry about getting home in time
to watch it live. :)

thank you;
gas fireplace
it is still warm here in the PNW
but soon and very soon,
i will be sitting in front of you
enjoying the warmth from 
your glow

thank you;
smart phone
how in the world did i 
live without you all 
these years? ;)


what are you thankful for
today?

are there things that make your life
easier?

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!
