Thankful: November 13th

Lemons on Cutting Board The Prudent Homemaker

Today, I'm thankful for the chance to garden year-round.


What are you thankful for today?

    I am so thankful for the free one to one assistance we are currently receiving from an ABA consultant for my daughter. We had a really good conversation yesterday (Nov 13th) about what we want my daughter to develop towards personal independence type skills. The consultant will help us develop a step by step program that will ultimately lead my daughter towards to doing more things by herself for herself and learning some housekeeping skills she will need to learn to be an independent adult. It will cost me money (we need some type of reward as she's hard to motivate and there are very few things she will work for), it won't be easy and it might take a long time, but in the long run, it will be worth it to have my daughter develop these important skills!

    Although I cannot garden year round, I am thankful for the bounty our summer garden produces that we continue to enjoy year round.

    Today, I am thankful for my washing machine and dryer. Right now, I can hear it humming, again. While sometimes I moan over the fact that the laundry never seems to end, today, I'm focusing on the fact that it is easy for me to wash and dry it. I can think of people in the world that need to wash it in the river, carry water for miles, or, closer to home, have to lug baskets to a laundrymat. 2 summers ago, I did just that--took it all to the laundry mat, as we were living in our camper that summer. What a joy it was to have the machine hooked up and running in our house when we moved in! And, I'm thankful that it works day in and day out, since hardly a day goes by when we don't wash something.

    11-13 Haha, I would have to say, honestly, that my thankfulness would be that I do not have to garden year round. I am so thankful when all is winding down beginning of October and done by November, even end of October. These are my six months of rest while the gardens sleep and rejuvenate, the compost perks away and we enjoy our preserved harvest.

    I am thankful for a warm house on a cold morning.

    I am Thankful for Gods Grace!

  • Jo November 14, 2017

    Today I am thankful that my insurance is finally processed at my new job so I can buy my new year's supply of contacts! I'm on my last pair.

  • Tammy November 14, 2017

    I am thankful for the frozen peppers I have in the freezer from our garden. I save so much money by not having to buy them in the store.

  • Tammy November 14, 2017

    Thankful for beautiful music to listen to on Pandora. It creates a wonderful environment to do all my daily chores or to simply relax.

  • Ellie's friend from Canada November 15, 2017

    Hi Tammy,

    I just read your post in reply to mine. Glad to hear you are fitting all of your appointments in. Were you able to get continuation of health care coverage under COBRA? Were you able to ask your husband's employer about it? The farmhouse
    sounds wonderful! Keep on keeping on...

  • J November 14, 2017

    I am thankful for beautiful parks where I can take my kids for outdoor adventures

  • Lea November 14, 2017

    I am thankful that I get paid to workout as a licensed and franchised Jazzercise instructor!


  • Myra November 14, 2017

    I am thankful for cool weather! Heat plus humidity equals miserable summers in the South.

  • SheilaS November 14, 2017

    For a nice warm bed on cold nights.

  • momsav November 14, 2017

    It’s funny that you would show fresh citrus today! As I watered my indoor lemon tree, and gave it some serious shaking, (aka wind), I thought how wonderful it was to be able to grow lemons in the North! I have many, many flowers ready to open. It smells wonderful and makes me happy!

  • Marybeth November 14, 2017

    I am thankful for my full pantry and freezers. I worked all day. My son (18) stayed home sick. When I got home he asked me if I could make him some pasta fagioli soup. I had everything I needed on hand to make a big pot. Switched dinner around so that is what we ate instead. When hubby came come he was very happy to eat 2 bowls. There is plenty left for my son to eat tomorrow.

    On the 13th, I was grateful to have a mechanic come repair our lawn mowers. Both of them had quit working. His prices were reasonable, and because he came to us with a mobile van, I did not have to try to load the one mower in the trunk of the car. I have no way to transport the riding mower anywhere, as neither of our cars are capable of towing a trailer.

  • PJGT November 14, 2017

    I am so very thankful for electricity and all the many gifts from our Lord. I am so blessed.

  • Hilogene in Az November 14, 2017

    I am thankful for getting help with next years health insurance costs via Obamacare and also being able to get the primary care doctor I wanted! I am also thankful that my husbands tooth extraction yesterday went well and he is pain free and recovering nicely. It is also beautiful in Arizona right now and I am thankful for morning walks.

    Thankful for the conversation with my SIL today.
