Pomegranates The Prudent Homemaker

I’m thankful for the opportunity I had yesterday to pick pomegranates from someone’s tree. Her children don’t like them and she offered me the fruit.


What are you thankful for today?

  6. I am thankful for clean, drinkable, running water that is only as far away as our kitchen and bathroom sinks.

So, today, I have decided to be thankful for something we often take for granted.

  13. You think? 😀 Our temperatures are going to change at the end of the week; a cold front is moving in. It’s been in the 70’s for two weeks but that is short-lived (before that it was in the upper 80’s; it just drops quickly here, and heat up just as quickly in early spring). Highs will be in the 60’s starting Saturday.

  14. Lucky you, Brandy! When I was about 9, we had a neighbor with a pom tree. She never ate them so we’d pick them. We’d sit on the curb, crack them against it, and turn our hands and face purply while eating the juicy mess!! They were delicious.

  19. This is so true of even those of us in the USA. My community is dealing with a massive contamination by a local company which has even contaminated one of the municipal systems. Many of us have switched to bottled water for the time being. But I cannot imagine not having the running water for the toilets (and yes, I am very, very thankful for having multiple toilets – digestive disorders kinda make that a priority 😉 ), showers and washing machine!

  22. I love the thankful posts. Lately, I have been feeling very thankful. Although I’m only 31 my best friend whom i graduated high school with passed away giving birth to her third child last year. I had a recent health scare but I think its most likely fine. I’m feeling that if I live to be 50 I’ll be so very very lucky to see my two girls (3 and 1) graduate high school. So I’m thankful for my current health and the wakeup call to stay healthy.
    I’m also thankful for hubby who works 9 hour days and still helps around the house.
    I’m thankful for the two children we have and feel that a third may push our luck.
