Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful that hubby, Little Bit and I had a wonderful weekend last week. I got my last meeting done and am ready to pass the torch. We had fun and the food was fantastic.

I'm thankful that our cruise over and back was uneventful and pleasant. We passed two tankers coming back to our marina. It's quite something to pass something that huge. It also seems that almost every time we encounter a tanker it's on a turn. Makes it far more interesting.

I'm thankful for the first face lift we've done on our boat. We stopped by West Coast Canvas on the way home last Monday and are going to do two more things the first part of December. All the canvas and isinglass and the seating in the entire cockpit. I can't wait because that will really make the boat look awesome.

I'm thankful that Little Bit is still with us. We watch her closely to see if there are changes. We are not looking forward to what will eventually happen, but we'll love her every minute we get to have with her. She's been more than precious to us.

I'm thankful for all my blogging buddies. Some have come and gone, but many have been with me since the beginning. You know who you are and you know I love you dearly.

I'm thankful that on October 9th we'll be having another blogging buddy visit us from Perth, Australia. He's currently in New York and will end up in Phoenix, Arizona for a convention then on to San Francisco. We'll pick him up near the airport. We'll be treating him to the weekend which includes a boat ride. Got to have a boat ride.

What are you thankful for today?

Have a fabulous day.

  1. Hi Sandee, it will be so fun and exciting to take your blogger friend for a boat ride. For me, I am reminded to be thankful for our good health, our safety and our life. We just received the sad news that a daughter of our friends is in serious condition and have been admitted to the ICU. God bless you and love ones.

    What fun to a blogger all the way from Australia. And what fun to listen to his accent. Can't wait to hear all about that. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a wonderful day.

  12. Being Thankful, well, first of all being alive and you already know what I mean by that. My family for being there. My mom & dad RIP gave me soon much to enjoy what I have today and taught to be the man I have today. My blogging friends, especially Bee who got me going in this and helped me how to lose my weight, you give me so much enjoyment each day even though I may never meet you face to face, I care so much about you and your life. Most of all, my wife Mary Lou. Without her I don't know how I would have survived in this world. I love you all.
    Have a caring, loving, beautiful Thursday Sandee, Zane & Little Bit.

  15. I am ever so thankful for my life and the fact that I have been given the honor and the privilege of living it in the greatest nation in the world. I am thankful for my family and the fact that we live in close proximity to each other and can be involved in the grand crew's lives. Other than the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, I am most thankful for the one who has shared my life for 41 years. I would be a mess without her.

  21. Glad your reign as Madame President has concluded in a satisfactory manner and now you're free to enjoy life without so many responsibilities. Glad Little Bit is hanging in there.

    My blessings are too numerous to mention but my family and our continued good health is certainly highest on the list.

    I try to remember that today is the youngest day of the rest of my life and I intend to enjoy it. The little blessings are good, too.
