Happy Saturday! Here’s what I am thankful for:
Uno: On Thursday night when my dog Bo ate one of the kittens’ collars, he later threw it all up. It had a metal buckle and other metal pieces, and until he upchucked it I had NO idea he’d eaten it. Sigh.
Dos: A nice day out running errands on Friday. I was all alone. I did some shopping (for boring stuff, mostly, like soap and dog food) and a little thrifting. I took my time and rather enjoyed myself.
Tres: I got out of Target spending only $25! I think that qualifies me for some kind of award or gold star or SOMETHING.
Cuatro: My husband removed a tick from my hiney. That’s true love right there, y’all!
Cinco: Bacon cooked in the oven. I read about it a while back on Pinterest, and that was a life-changing lesson right there. I love bacon; I hate frying it. I always got grease burns! In case you haven’t heard this awesome tip, all you do is line a baking pan with foil, put your bacon on the pan, place it in a COLD oven, then turn the oven on to 400 for chewy bacon, 425 for crispy bacon. When your oven indicates that it has reached it’s temp, your bacon is DONE! Tastes exactly like fried bacon. Then you just toss the foil! No clean-up!
Seis: 3-2-1 Mug Cakes. They are the perfect size. Incredibly easy. Cake anytime you want it? Yes please. As above, practically zero clean up. You gotta love the internet; I have learned so many awesome things!
Siete: Waking up and realizing my nightmare was NOT true. I don’t even want to post details about it; I told Byron I had a really sad dream but haven’t even told him what it was about. Suffice it to say it was terribly sad, and I am so very glad it was only a bad dream. Sometimes I wish I could turn off my dreams! I’ve had a lot of weird ones lately, but this was by far the worst.
Ocho: My spot, and the time and good weather to spend time out there enjoying it.
Nueve: Sunshine & Rain. I love the sun, I love storms, and I love what both of them are doing to make my plants and flowers grow huge and beautiful!
Diez: Remembering just enough Spanish from middle & high school to be able to number my thankful list En Espanol. (OK, I remember a little more than that, but not nearly as much as I’d like to!) There was no particular reason to use Spanish numbers, other than to be different. Although I AM craving burritos. Ole!
