Thankful Thursday 4

Good morning everyone!  How has your week been? Mine has been busy, but good. I usually enjoy being busy because business tends to equate to productivity,  There are some days I have no motivation to clean or bake or garden, so I read or watch Netflix.  Before I know it David is texting me to say he is on his way home from work and I’m like “wow, I did nothing today!”

Pointless story aside, this week has been busy and gone by fast! As I mentioned in the weekend recap post our hot water tank has stopped working (due to a calcium build up) so we are still bathing “camping style” as my brother calls it.  We warm a pot of water on the stove and use that, which means it’t hard to really feel clean after.  I’ve resorted to washing my hair over the tub with the cold water so thankfully my hair is short and only needs washing every few days

Enough babbling, let’s get to the list!  This week I’m thankful:
  1. For our neighbors on the South side of our yard.  They are always friendly without being creepy, they have offered us their lawn mower when we didn’t have one, they used their farm tractor/snow plow on our driveway last winter after a huge storm and more recently, they offered us FREE firewood!  They own several acres behind us and are cutting down all the trees on the property line; since they know we use  a wood stove they said we can have as much as we want for free.  That’s a huge blessing since heating costs can be very expensive.
  2. That the raccoon we thought might be making a nest in our yard/house actually lives in an abandoned barn elsewhere.
  3. For my friend, Lisa at work.  I’ve only been working with her for a few months and now she is moving on to a better job, which makes me a little sad.  She is always so cheerful and funny and I love working with her.
  4. That my mom has a job she finally likes.  She used to work in administration for a department store but was recently promoted to the optical center there. Now she is working almost full time and really enjoying it.  

What are you thankful for this week? Let me know below!  If you have a blog feel free to make your own Thankful Thursday post and share the link in the comments section here.
