Apple Branches The Prudent Homemaker

I am grateful to have spent time organizing this year. While I still have some places in the house left to finish organizing, most areas in the house have been reorganized this year, and having the house in order makes life so much nicer!

What are you thankful for today?

  1. I am so thankful for my home. It is comfortable, suits our family, and is close to shopping. We got our new windows, siding, and roof a year ago. That makes our home comfortable. We have 2 more years till the boys graduate and we will sell this house and get an RV. So I am getting it ready.

  2. I am thankful for the way the Internet enables us to connect with and learn from people we would never have met otherwise.

Thank you, I really appreciate your writing.

  3. I am grateful that my work schedule is quite flexible! I don’t get paid a lot (a LOT less than people think I do), but I have a flexible schedule and that is a perk that makes up for a lot of things.

    Working on the cleaning out and organizing on our end here – definitely need to get it done soon!

It’s still on going, but it will be a long time before I “finish.” So many things still to do. Arthritis is slowing me down some these days, but I’m still getting after it quite often!!

  10. I’m thankful for “foodie” blogs. I was recently trying to figure out what to do with some of the tomatoes we had dried last summer and was able to find a new-to-me recipe that called for dried tomatoes and other pantry/refrigerator staples. My son deemed it his “second favorite” pasta dish. Win!
