Ten Things of Thankful

Later today we will be filling our faces with turkey, ham and all the trimmings. It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Yup…we know how to space out our holidays so by the time Christmas rolls around…we will be ready for turkey again. 

My friend Christine over at A Fly on Our (Chicken Coop) Wall co-hosts a Ten Things of Thankful every week. I keep meaning to participate so what better time to start than this, our Thanksgiving, weekend. Christine is amazing! She has been making a list for 19 weeks! 19!!! I will be lucky if I can keep this going after this week. Tee hee.

Okay. Let’s see what I can come up with…

1.      I am thankful for……ummmm……gee……this is tougher than I thought. Hmmmm…*tapping fingers*……I seem to be a little short on thankful this week. Well this is a little awkward. Since I am a little strapped for time today (I am after all hosting dinner tonight) how about you go checkout my "10 Things I Am Thankful For" Monday Listicles that I wrote last year. Not sure how I could top that list anyways.


I will do my best to come up with an original list next week. Until then…gobble, gobble!!

  1. Sometimes it is hard to quiet oneself and think of something to put on paper. I love this. "Hmmmm…*tapping fingers*……I seem to be a little short on thankful this week. Well this is a little awkward." Yes. I'm familiar with the tapping fingers drill. Thanks for the laugh.

  2. Great to have you here anyway - I bet you could come up with at least half the list AFTER the gorgeous thanksgiving meal instead of before ;) Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating together, and look forward to seeing you again soon :)

    1. Thanks Michelle! I will be sure to jot things down as they happen since my memory isn't what it used to be. Oish.

  4. Your last year's list is delightful! Isn't it odd how overwhelming it can be to come up with ten things for which to be thankful? But usually, (usually, but not always!), once I get started, it's hard to stop at 10.

    Glad you joined our TToT, and I look forward to next week's list....

    1. It was VERY overwhelming! I thought it would be a snap but then again...I'm not exactly the best under pressure. Haha!

  5. Hahahaha! Nice try. XD

    When in doubt about thankful things, think small and simple. Like toilet paper. I know you're thankful for that.

    Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving weekend. Curious to see what Riley eats on such a day. I know it is sauce-less, but what?

    1. Haahaa....can't blame a girl for trying. Small and simple...gotcha! :)

      R went for his usual carrots, mashed potatoes (sans gravy) and ham AND he actually was at the table with all of us. Of course I didn't give him his plate until after everybody was seated. ;P

  8. You were just a year ahead of the rest of us, I guess. I'm glad Christine got you to link up. If you're like me, you'll find yourself thinking all this week of what to add to next week's TToT post!
