Grateful that:

No one in my immediate family is ill.
I have a little garden where I can get lost for hours.
My adult chickens still think I am their mother and give me great joy and laughter when I have to watch where I walk to keep from having a chicken perching on my foot.

Grateful that:

- All my new chickens survived another night, even though something obviously tried to break into the coop (hole in the wire at the door)

- The nerve I pinched in my back a few weeks ago is finally deciding to heal up and I was able to get up out of bed today without looking like an upturned turtle trying to right itself

- Pay day!!

Grateful that:

- Raleys Supermarket had my frozen turkey (long story)!

- All my garden transplants seem to be healthy and strong

- I had a chance to catch up with an old friend (who also happens to be my avian vet) when I took the birds in for nail/beak trims

Grateful that:

The new roosters seem to be integrating nicely into the flock (even though one of my older hens has decided to make sure they know she is the boss).

I am ALMOST done deep-cleaning the chicken coop (days long project)

I just learned that I can grow bananas and mangoes in my zone (always thought they would not survive).

Grateful that:

My chest freezer is so full, I am thinking about pulling everything out to reorganize it.

The internet (been hanging out there all morning instead of working).

Podcasts. I got rid of my t.v. and service years ago, and they are my only way of keeping generally current with what is going on in the world.

Grateful that:

All my new chickens seem to have figured out how to get back in the coop at night!

I live in a zone where I can still plant beans today and know that they will ripen before it gets too cold and where I can grow just about anything I want to try.

My Roomba works!

The temps are supposed to go down later this week and feel a bit like they are going down today.

I received some seeds that I ordered a while back.

I had a great nap this afternoon!

Oops, been a few days:

Grateful for:

The break in the heat!

That all my baby chicks are doing great and should be ready to join the flock in just a few weeks (could join them now but the babies are still too small and would be hawk bait).

That I was able to get my much-coveted cases of turkey necks and wings. I buy from a guy who delivers and he is ALWAYS out of those! I use them for dog treats and also roast the occasional wing for myself when the mood strikes. My mother loves the necks to use for making broth. But I can only get them a couple of times a year. I was able to get two cases (40 pounds each) of each this time, so now I have to spend a little time rearranging my freezer to fit them all!

I finished building the new raised bed, so more room for veggies!

I was able to somehow stuff all those turkey necks and wings into various freezers!

The re-fi seems to finally be moving ahead. I was told 4-6 weeks, and it has now been 12! :(

1) zucchini! (I've never managed to get any to grow before...I am an epically bad gardener)
2) cash in the bank at the moment and cash in the home (at the moment)
3) good friends who are happy with thrifty fun
4) solitude

I normally get sick of zucchini, but it was a bad year for me, so I am jealous!

Today, I am grateful for:


  1. Beautiful sunny weather (and while I am not a fan of the heat, my veggies are thrilled)
  2. A day with no commitments
  3. Good health and the strength to do the things around here that I want to do.

Grateful that:

1. My brother come home from Texas this weekend (to Pennsylvania) and we got to have a family picnic which was so nice. The rain held off except for the last hour or so and then it was off and on but my sister has a nice big porch and so it worked out well.

2. I got to see my daughter this afternoon which with her job and taking care of her family, I don't get to see her very often so it was a nice surprise when she unexpectedly stopped by.

3. For my apartment and all of my friends that I've made since moving here nearly two years ago.

This week I'm grateful for:

1. I don't have COVID (nor have I had it)

2. My friend and neighbor just bought a Happy Planner and we plan to have weekly a weekly get together and decorate them each week (she just lives 2 doors down the hall so is close!) We're so excited!!

3. As of this minute, there is no snow on the ground yet and it's almost December! We've had two quick blasts of winter and did have some snow but it didn't last. Not looking forward to it but it's bound to come (and when it does get here, I plan on being grateful for how beautiful it is when it's coming down! :smile2:)

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends! (What are you all grateful for today?!)
