Thankful Thursday

Hi, everyone!

No card to share today. I've been working on something today, but it won't be posted for a while yet.

Instead, I'm here to share a little gratitude. A week or so ago, I designated Thursdays as "Thankful Thursdays". So, in spite of being card-less, I would like to share three things for which I am thankful.

  • This past weekend, I enjoyed a wonderful visit with a dear, dear friend. It was weekend full of talking, and eating, and more talking, and more eating. Throw in a movie and a trip to Hobby Lobby... well, what more could two gals want. Thanks, Linda, for a great time and for being such a fabulous friend.
  • While visiting with Linda, I had time to spend time in a few small towns. This suburban gal loved seeing three young siblings walk into a coffee shop to get carry-out breakfast items for their family, the mail carrier delivering mail to the old-fashioned mailbox while walking her Saturday morning route, and the young lady struggling with a looooong hose while watering the town's hanging baskets.  
  • Today was a perfect retirement CREATE day: playing with Distress Inks while crafting, finishing a great read, exercising body and mind by taking a neighborhood walk and solving a couple of daily puzzles, assisting kids at a local hospital with the shipment of a box of handmade cards, traveling to a local restaurant for lunch with hubby, and embracing a good friendship over breakfast. Oh, and I went to the pool for an hour or so with hubby. A perfect day indeed!

Crafting Notes

Hope to be back in a day or two with a card for my dad.

And, a new challenge posted yesterday at Words 2 Craft By. If you're working on a wedding/anniversary, retirement, graduation, or maybe even dad project, we might just have the challenge for you. There's a $10 SSS gift certificate up for grabs. Why not stop by and join in the fun?

Until next time, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

  1. Always something to be thankful for. It's good to be reminded!
