    My cats want to say that they are thankful that I took apart an old comforter and made it into three pillows for them, two on the chairs in my bedroom and the third one on the bed itself so they each have a soft place to lay.

  9. I’m thankful I got to try hot yoga w/a friend. The studio had a special so I was able to try a class for free, then purchase a 3 visit package for cheap.

  11. Thankful for a quiet Sunday and the few things I was able to accomplish before passing out on the couch for a while. I promised DH I would attempt to cook tonight—looks like goulash, pumpkin bread, and either a veggie or a side salad. My energy is not the greatest. Nothing is especially sore, just that I get half way through something and want to sit down again. We will eat something, and we will be fine! And if anyone is hungry later, there is popcorn or ice cream!

  12. I”m from Australia so Thanksgiving has not been part of my heritage but I appreciate hearing how other people celebrate important traditions in their cultures/families.

Plus I am also thankful that my husband was able to take our girls to school this morning as I’m still unwell, allowing me some extra rest.

  13. I am thankful that we were able to complete the whole house spring and deep cleaning the bathroom, toilet and kitchen as well as cleaning and polishing the venetian blinds and mopping all the floors and the whole home sparkles and smells less dusty.

  14. I am thankful for my pantry –– not extensive but am glad I have lentils and will make soup tonight. Frozen okra, tomatoes with green peppers and onion, lentils and carrots. That should tide me over. I am grateful for the tips I read about here and the friendship. Ann

  15. I am thankful for my husband who suggested we cut up leftover meatloaf to use as meatballs in our spaghetti dinner. I had frozen hamburger but didn’t have any cooked meatballs….and had no enthusiasm to cook them tonight. The cut up meatloaf worked out great, cleanup was a snap and the food was delicious. Plan B was leftover turkey but we are pretty tired of that right now 🙂

  16. I am thankful for the energy to make chili for an unknown number tomorrow and also cornbread and double of brownies. Thankful for a husband who had all the dishes done until I made more for the meeting tomorrow. Thankful for Brandy’s faithfulness with this encouragement and ministry for all of us who have to watch pennies! ( And for friends who provide the moose burger for the chili!)
