Giving thanks.

We've been really busy gearing up for the Christmas season on the blog but I didn't want to overlook Thanksgiving.

I know our Canadian friends already celebrated but ours will be this coming Thursday and we've got a lot to be thankful for and look forward to.

We're blessed enough to live near many of Ken's family members, so going up to his mom's to celebrate.

This week along with getting several more reviews and giveaways up we'll be sharing some of our Thanksgiving recipes and traditions as well as celebrating Ian's birthday.

It's easy to be thankful for the big things, and I've been lately hearing/reading a lot of negative Neds and Nellies who say they have nothing to be thankful for but I beg to differ and I am going to list a handful of small blessings, that not everyone can enjoy- things I often take for granted but know not everyone in the world can enjoy- and maybe if someone who feels hopeless and helpless reads this then they can get rid of the "stinkin' thinkin" and realize that while life has its ups and downs for all of us, if we can sit at a computer and read this, we've got a lot good going for us.

I am thankful for:
My family & friends -  I know I have the BEST OF THE BEST here but I'm sure most of yours are great too ;)
My dogs
My brain (unused though it may be -  blondie plays the brain sucker game she takes her hand and pretends she's sucking out my brain and it collapses cuz it dies of starvation) ;)
My sense of humor
The sunshine
Running water
The rain
Access to any information I could ever need or want
Plenty of food
Indoor Plumbing!!!!!!!!!
Plenty of the things we need
Coffee!!!!  Okay, this should probably go first- I don't think I could function without my coffee.
Movies & TV should I choose to partake
The Paula Deen book I am reading-  she has a fascinating story, I'm getting ready to go finish it up now. ;)
Nora Roberts-  I can always count on her for a good read
Lots of sweeps and giveaways to enter
The wicked cool awesome sponsors who believe in their products and trust us to get the word out by having us review and/or host giveaways
That I figured out how to do a blog let alone all kinds of techie tricks I never thought I'd be able to do-  and all I still have to learn
Candles, especially yummy smelling ones
The potato-cheese-veggie soup I made for dinner...  OMG GOOD!
The phone I hate talking on so I can keep in touch with my mama
Our jobs
Headphones so we can all do our own thing
Really bad tv show marathons so the girls and I can bond!
Restaurants for when we just don't want to cook
Good sales and deals
Free samples

It's pretty clear-  there are so very many things to be grateful for, and I have barely scratched the surface.

What are you thankful for?
