Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful that we got to spend a wonderful weekend on our boat last weekend. We had a nice BBQ rib dinner with another couple on Saturday evening and then spent a lot of time reading. Nothing better than reading a great book on the back of your boat.

I'm thankful that our boating neighbor took a shot of our boat with his very expensive camera and then sent us the photograph.
Apparently he can edit any photograph any way he wants. He sure made our boat look nice. It wasn't this clean when he took this photograph.

I'm thankful for the beautiful spring weather. I'm wearing short sleeve shirts and flip flops. I'm not in shorts yet, but that's right around the corner.

I'm thankful for all the wonderful comments I get on my blog every day. You have no idea how much I appreciate your visits and comments.

I'm thankful that hubby will probably be having his hernia surgery next Monday. There was a bit of a problem with his blood pressure, but we think this will be resolved this week. Oh the roadblocks we encounter when we get older.

I'm thankful that hubby and I are still very healthy. There are a few issues here and there, but there are so many that have some serious health issues when they are our age. So thankful.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. So glad you are able to enjoy going out in the boat again! It looks great!
    We have been in shorts all week. Cooler air is coming, so long pants will come back out, but no more winter coats. Makes me happy, happy, happy.
    Next Monday...I'll be praying that the blood pressure glitches get worked out and that the surgery and recovery go smoothly.

    1. I'm getting closer and closer to the shorts. Tomorrow we're supposed to have thunder showers, but it will still be warm. :)

  2. Yay, life is complete once again. Just get that pesky surgery out of the way so you can be on the boat again next weekend. Will send prayers and good thoughts your way for a flawless surgery and fast recovery.

  5. She's a beauty, alright. Did you ever mention what her name is?

    My best to Zane on his upcoming surgery. Al had double hernias repaired about 15 years ago with the mesh... It's held pretty good but one side has started to bulge just a bit. Bugger. Not so bad that he's considering more surgery though, thank goodness.

    Have a terrific day! xoxo

  8. I hope the blood pressure problem is resolved and the hernia surgery goes well. Surgery of any kind always makes me feel a bit nervous. So I will send lots of good vibes your way! P.S. Isn't it amazing what we can do with photo editing :)Your boat is lovely either way, but that shine!

    1. The shine is there all the time. That's because we have her detailed every year. Makes a big difference.

      Thanks for the good vibes on hubbies surgery. :)

  9. There is a plaque on the wall at our vet's office that reads, "There is always always always something to be grateful for." I know this in my head, but I have a heavy heart today. We would be grateful for some good news at our house.

    Your boat is a real beauty. And yes, reading a great book at the back of your boat sounds heavenly. I would say reading a great book poolside would come in second.

    My best to your husband with his upcoming surgery. Hoping for the best for you both.
