Thankful Thursday

Another Thursday. That means another week has gone by.

Today I am thankful for:
* Books and being able to read. I love to read
* warm blankets on a chilly night
* my children
* prayers
* a full pantry and a husband that makes yummy chili!!
* friends

Winter will be here soon. We've already had some snow in parts of the state. Luckily it's been sunny today so the cold isn't quite so brutal.
Proverbs 9:10
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the
knowledge of the holy is understanding.

I was tagged by Bethany to answer these questions. Then I need to think of seven more questions and tag seven people!! This should be fun!

1. Do you exercise regularly? If so what kind of exercise do you do?

I try to, but am not very good at it. I like walking but would love to be able to run!

2. What is your favorite fast food restaurant?

That's a tough one. I really like Wendy's.

3. Do you use plastic, paper, or reusable/recyclable bags?

I use cloth bags that I love!

4. What is the best book you've ever read?

Well, the Bible is pretty interesting, but I love to read Gone With the Wind.

5. What is your favorite drink?

I like tea. Hot or cold with no sugar.

6. What's a website you go to every day?

I visit Cute Overload every day because it makes me laugh.

7. Do you have a favorite charity? What is it and why do you support them?

Hope for the children is a charity we support, we support two orphans in Kenya through them. I also crochet and give to several charities that way. I make shawls, scarves, baby blankets and afghans.

Now for my seven questions:
1. If you could meet anyone in the world, living or dead, who would it be? (I know, lame question. LOL)
2. What profession have you always wanted to do, but haven't for one reason or another?
3. What is your one regret in life?
4. Where in the world would you travel if you could go anywhere?
5. Do you like drive- in movies?
6. What is your favorite snack?
7. What was your favorite game or toy growing up?

I will tag:

October blankets

This is a sweater I made with the remaining baby green then I used Red Heart Aran.

It's really about a size 6 or 7 but my little guy squeezed into it.

Certain family members thought the proportions of the sweater looked odd. You can always turn up the cuffs if they are too long but you can't make short cuffs longer.

It's the first sweater I have made in a while so it was a little wacky looking, but it still works!!

October blankets

This is a baby blanket I made for a friend to give to her friend.

It's made with Lion Brand Pound of Love baby yarn in that baby green color.

October blankets

This is a rectangular prayer shawl I made. Nobody from church wanted to use this yarn. And someone had started working with this yarn. Must have decided they didn't like it, so I finally chose it. It took a while to actually bring the yarn home and everytime I looked in the cupboard at church it was still there.

It's made with Lion Brand Polarspun in Tutti Fruity.

October blankets

This is a cotton shawl I made. I think I used Patons cotton yarn. It's really pretty and a bit heavier than my usual acrylic shawls.

Thankful Thursday

I have been neglecting posting about Thankful Thursdays. I am always thankful even though I don't post.

Today I am thankful for:
* an understanding and generous husband
* the first family wedding in 14 years
* my daughter coming for a visit
* the little guy that loves math!!
* our continued good health
* beautiful cool, fall sunny days
For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for
well doing, than for evil doing.

1 Peter 3:17, King James Version

I haven't been here much...

I haven't been posting much at all here lately.

It seems we were busy getting back in to the swing of school, AWANA, and this year the little guy started Boy Scouts! It seems as though my little guy is somewhat of a mathalete. He loves math and can do some math that is beyond his grade level. I am glad about that since I sometimes have struggled with math. His dad on the other hand does NOT struggle with math!! He is after all an Electrical Engineer!

I also started my Tuesday Bible study again a few weeks ago. We are reading a book by Shaunti Feldhahn called "For Women Only." So far it has been a great book that sort of fits in with the bible study we did last year!!

We had a family wedding this last weekend. My niece got married. She is the oldest and first niece/nephew to get married.

My daughter was home for nine days for the wedding and to visit. We had a great visit too!

I have also continued to crochet all this time and have several shawls, blankets and a sweater to post. I will do that in the next few days.

I haven't kept up with Thankful Thursdays. That doesn't mean I am not thankful because I am!! I need to start doing that this week too.

We have also been doing stuff outside to prepare for winter. We actually cleaned out two sheds and our garage!!

We had some success with curbside recycling again. A golf bag, a tire, vacuum cleaner and some other miscellaneous stuff. I love curbside recycling!!

We have had a beautiful fall so far. But I have been in somewhat of a funk with my blogging. I'll get better about it in the coming days.

Thanks for stopping by!! Leave a comment so I know you were here!
