OT - Thankful Thursday

Aniki's picture

Haven't had one of these for some time!

I am thankful for:

  • today being Thursday. I thought it was Wednesday. Nope! One day closer to the weekend. Woo hoo!
     
  • Wild fruit. We'll have a TON of apples this year. The deer are gonna eat GOOD this Fall/Winter! And wild blueberries will also be plentiful. While not 100% ripe, there's definitely enough to make some blueberry pancakes this weekend! Nom nom nom...
     
  • my job. It's been SO crazy the last several months. Hell, this YEAR. But crazy means busy and busy is a good thing.
     
  • DH. He's hardwoking, generous, and kind. No matter how tired he is, he always makes time to make me feel beautiful, sexy, loved, and wanted. Plus, he's got those man hands. Puuurrrrrrr..........
     
  • my cooking skills. It's a blessing to be able to throw together a new combo of ingredients and seasoning/spices, somehow "knowing" they'll taste good - and they end up better than expected. I love to cook!

 

What are YOU thankful for?

Those all sound wonderful Aniki. Today I am thankful it's my Friday and that by next week we will be in August and that much closer to fall.

I am thankful that I’ve spent seven hard years turning my work department around. We’ve changed nearly every process and procedure. Introduced technology. Improved workflow. Got rid of dead wood. Made good hires. 

And I realized just this morning that it’s all working! Is it perfect? No. Never will be. 

But damn. I’m proud of this.

Ummmm.... I'm thankful for...

  • Cute puppy
  • The gym
  • Whoever invented running tracks... MIL tried to twart my gym time yesterday, so i took the girls to one, then I ran and they played in the middle. Could see them the WHOLE time. So whoever invented those. I LOVE them.
  • The support I've found from people on here, I need it some days.
  • Work friends (except the two who BOTH are taking two days off and just happen to be the two I'm closest to... UGH)
  • That DH is good at his job and won't ever be unemployed (though he's too good and his boss is currently trying to bribe him into staying after he graduates... With everything... Except decent money....)
  • Tomorrow is Friday. I can make it.

I am thankful for my kids.

My SO and the awesome sex last night....I think I actually purred like a kitty.

My boss is on vacation this week, so I have been in charge this week.

I am thankful that I am retiring in 9 months and I will not have to ever work a summer again.

I am thankful that I am listing my 3rd flip house in the next 2 weeks while I take a convertible ride vacation to Colorado and Utah for 10 days.

Capricorn, I'm embarassed to admit some of the sounds that have involuntarily come out of my mouth during sex. My DH is da BOMB in the bedroom. And the living room. And the kitchen. And the garage....lol

Wow! Flipping houses is cool. I would love to give that a whirl one day.

Um ditto on the tasty topic. I'm glad new guy lives alone, but I feel bad for his neighbors as he likes to keep the windows open. I'm surprised the cops haven't been called. "9-1-1. What's your emergency?" "Please help! I think the guy next door is hurting some poor woman. He's been doing it every night this week!" LMAO It's bound to happen.

Ha, FB! My nephew and his wife no longer leave their windows open when they "get busy". The cops knocked one night, saying, "We had a report of a woman screaming." Oh yeah, there was a scream, but it was my nephew!!! Bahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa!
