Thankful: November 5th

White Garden in late October The Prudent Homemaker 

Today I am thankful that I can work in the garden. The weather is beautiful and there is much to be done.


What are you thankful for today?

    Today I am thankful that my husband has the weekend off work. He worked weekends for many years so it is so nice to have a whole weekend to plan some fun outings together.

  • Melissa V November 05, 2016

    I am thankful today for our house and the huge lot it sits on (.9 acre). About 1/3 of the lot is fenced with 6 foot chainlink that I am thankful everyday for (it was not cheap to put in even 19 years ago!) as it allows the dogs room to run full tilt and we don't have to be concerned with them jumping it or it ever rotting out. It also allows for me to have a very large garden area and room for a few (illegal) chickens and ducks :)

  • Athanasia November 07, 2016

    Melissa, how is that going with screening the poultry from your neighbors? You were going to do some plantings, if I remember right.

  • Melissa V November 07, 2016

    Yep - and then hubby got diagnosed with cancer and cannot work so there is nothing to put into screening plants right now (which is too bad because they were all on clearance last month!) I have been faithfully checking the free section of Craigslist to see if maybe we can pick up some solid fencing panels in fairly decent shape to get us thru.

  • Polly Wog November 05, 2016

    I am thankful that today is a day that has nothing planned. I am going to use it for a few errands and cooking projects, but I don't have to be anywhere or do anything at any special time. Just letting myself sleep in was a gift.

  • Roselyne November 05, 2016

    Same... kinda.

    I am thankful that the garden is only under 1 inch of snow so that I an dig up the Jerusalem artichokes and cut back the perennials (asparagus, etc), and put down mulch and manure for spring. I am grateful that my morning sickness has abated enough to do this.

    I am especially grateful for the friend visiting from the city who volunteered to help my husband get the last of the wood in for winter, since I'm too pregnant to spend the afternoon lifting heavy logs.

  • Trudi November 05, 2016

    I am thankful for my husband and children

  • Mariana November 05, 2016

    Today (and always) I am greateful for healthcare that my work provides. Both my husband and I have had a lot going on medically this year (including a cat scan, MRI, ER visit and a surgery) thanks to health insurance we are free of medical debt. I will always be grateful for that

  • Stephanie November 06, 2016

    Mariana, I can't agree with you more! I too am so grateful for a good health insurance plan.

  • Debby in KS November 05, 2016

    I'm grateful for the cool nights we've had because they make for such a good night's sleep.

  • Marybeth November 05, 2016

    I'm thankful for modern medicine. Not feeling great today. Took some over the counter meds and already feeling better.

  • Margaret @approachingfoos November 05, 2016

    Today I'm thankful that despite being miserable with a nasty cold/flu, it's just a cold/flu and it will pass. Also thankful for good health care, because I had to go to the hospital earlier this week for a standard test, but had a not-so-standard vaso-vagal reaction to it, and the staff were amazing. I felt well taken care of, and when you're feeling that sick, excellent medical care and human kindness are both deeply, deeply appreciated.

  • Anne November 05, 2016

    I am very thankful that my husband's parents have their home on our property and that we are preparing for my mom's new manufactured home to be put here too. It is such a blessing for our children to have their grandparents right next door, and I will be so glad when my mom is only a few hundred feet away so we can help her whenever she needs assistance.

  • Athanasia November 07, 2016

    Anne, it is a wonderful blessing. I am happy for you and your family. My daughter and her family live next door in the original family house of my mother's parents and she lives with them. Our house (a ranch) was added onto the property when we needed a place to house my husband's ailing parents, a teen sister and a disabled brother. We made it handicap accessible since knew we would need it that way eventually when it came time for us to move from the big house.

  • Rhonda A. November 05, 2016

    I am thankful that the weather this fall has been relatively good and perfect for walking. Although I know that winter is coming, so far our temperatures have mostly been comfortable with only a lighter to medium weight jacket needed for warmth most days. I'm so grateful that winter is holding off at the moment!

  • Lea Stormhammer November 05, 2016

    I'm grateful for beautiful fall weather (we usually have a dusting of snow by now) and a day spent with just my daughter. I rarely get one-on-one time with my children so this is a treasure!


  • Roberta in So. Cal. November 05, 2016

    I'm thankful for all of the appliances (computer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, bread machine, stand mixer, food processor, etc.) that make my life so much easier than the lives my grandmothers led.

  • Becky November 05, 2016

    I am thankful for a nice day yesterday. It was sunny for our outing to the Columbia River Gorge. Today, it is back to rain.

    My husband had a day off yesterday. Sometimes he works when the kids have the day off, and sometimes he doesn't. We can see no rhyme or reason to it, but are thankful to a wonderful office manager who knows what the district office wants him to do. We were thankful to get to spend the day together. We have been missing each other's company after a year of unemployment where we spent every day together. So, I am thankful that he has a job, and that we could have a day together without him being unemployed.

  • Marivene November 05, 2016

    I am grateful for 4 big bags of leaves that I was able to rescue from curbside. They will save me multiple hours of raking &a gathering leaves to dig into the garden.

  • Marcia November 05, 2016

    And I'm grateful that a few flowers are still blooming in the warmish fall we've had so far. A lavender rose that's been open for a couple days, and some snapdragons and a few other annuals are still blooming although not looking their very best. It's so dreary when there are no flowers so I'm happy we still have those!!
