Things I'm Thankful For On This Monday!

      Hello, Y'all! :-) I have to say 'Hello' because it feels like it's been a really long time since I blogged...In fact, it's only been a day, but still! ^_^ The reason is because I wasn't feeling well. Allergies and stuff...of course! Grrrr! But it's all water under the bridge now! It's Monday, and I'm ready to blog! ^_^
      I have some really cute things to blog about too! Some Etsy finds that I think you will like as much as I do!...starting with that cute tablecloth in the header photo!...And I have some things I'm thankful for to tell you about too. Maybe I can share the Etsy finds and talk about my thankfulness at the same time! :-) 
      For instance, I'm thankful for my quiet house today, where I can look out the window and relax my mind between moments of madness from trying to finish writing my talk (5 minute discourse) for the meeting at the Kingdom Hall this week! O_O ...

      If it wasn't for a quiet house right now you'd be reading the written ravings of a Wug whose mind had gone stark raving mad!!! LOL I'm thankful for my quiet house! :-) 

      I'm thankful for birdies...and jewelry shaped like birdies! :-) ...

      ...and paintings of birdies! :-) ...

      ...and also real birdies, robins and hummingbirds, cardinals and chickadees, etc. :-) I'm looking at them out my window today too...between the raindrops unfortunately. Grrr! But still...I'm thankful for them. ♥

      I'm thankful for rings...

      ...Beautiful jewelry rings, and rings on the telephone from good friends who keep me encouraged and up-built. :-) ♥ I have to admit though that I'm not thankful for 'all' rings of the phone! There's been a lot of random calls lately. YUCK!!...Sometimes I wish that there was some way to only be able to receive phone calls from people on your personally approved  'okay' list! Oh, how much simpler life would be!! :-)
      Of course this would only work as long as there's not some inheritance due you from your long lost uncle who's had the attorneys trying to find you for two years with no success! LOL...Anyway!...Ring on, phone. Ring On!! ^_^ I'm thankful for you!

      I'm also thankful for my bed! any cute doggie would be for this one!...

      I've been so 'sneezy' and 'hacky' and tired and achy this past weekend. Ugh! It was sleep...or cough, wheeze, and blow your nose!...I chose sleep! :-] And I was thankful for my bed to be able to sleep in!! :-)

      I was also thankful for sports this weekend, for the times I was awake! The NBA basketball playoffs are in play right now, and WOW!!!! The two games that have been played so far were nail-biters up to the end!! :-)
      There's been golf, and hockey, which...okay!...I'm not gonna kid with you...I didn't watch...AT ALL!! LOL I'm not a big fan of men on ice skates or men in plaid pants walking through grassy meadows with a stick and a tiny ball that they're whacking at!! LOL I am a fan of women and men in shorts carrying tennis rackets and hitting fuzzy balls as hard as they can though! ^_^ Tennis, I love you!!...Congratulations to Maria Sharapova...and my 'baby boy', Rafael Nadal!!...

      The French Open wouldn't have been the same without you this year!! ♥ I'm thankful for you!!

      I'm also thankful for music, which I played a fair bit of this weekend. It relaxed me...between sports games. ^_^  ... And I was thankful!

      I'm thankful for color and creativity, and for the ability to refashion things!...

      I didn't do it this weekend, but I have been refashioning some of my crochet flowers into other things recently...keychains, brooches, etc. I even found a full container of scarves that I had forgotten I made! O_O Now, if only I can figure out a way to get them sold!...Uhhhh...I'd be thankful for a good suggestion. I'd even be willing...and trade a handmade scarf for it!! Hint, Hint! LOL

      I'm almost done, Y'all. Hang in there! ^_^ ...I'm also thankful for my 'virtual date nights'. Even when I'm not feeling well, it's nice to 'go somewhere' sunny and warm, eat good food, and listen to good music! ^_^ This past weekend's trip was on a train! :-) ...

      It wasn't as cute as this train, but it was just as creatively inspired! ^_^

     Okay!...last but not least, I'm thankful for being able to write...and having the utensils to do it with! :-) ...

      I'm even considering writing the story of my life with hubby! :-) It'll be a long, exciting, boring, strange and wacky journey! :-)) Would any of you read it?!...I know you would. I mean, you read all of my daily drivel, right?! ^_^ ... DON'T TELL ME!!! LOL...ANYWAY!! ^_^ Have a good rest of the day, Everybody! ♥

I Am Thankful

I am thankful I can breathe
when I wake up every day;
I am thankful I have time
in which I can spend to pray.

I am thankful that my husband
is a good, hard-working man;
I am thankful I can write
with a steady flowing hand.

I am thankful for good friends,
who are always there for me;
I am thankful for my ears,
and the sunsets I can see.

I am thankful for the Bible,
`cause from it I learned the truth;
I am thankful for the rain,
and my sturdy rain-proof roof.

I am thankful for my life,
because without it I'd be dead-
and the dead can't serve Jehovah,
or even practice what he's said.

I am thankful for this poem,
writing it was not a chore,
`cause it made me stop and think
of all the things I'm thankful for.
