Thankful Thursday

Hello Thankful Thursday, it has been awhile.

Today I am thankful for so many things, which I will write in list form because the window of time in which I have two free hands is closing.

- Our small group cookie exchange. Third year in a row!

- My father-in-law is tolerating his first round of chemo very well! They are staying with us and I am so thankful he is staying healthy.

- This gingerbread house gift from our friends:

It is now missing the snowman, which I would bet is somewhere underneath Ina’s bed and the roof, which is mostly crumbled on the living room floor. I made her wait until Dan was home to break into it and you would think I was intentionally torturing her.

- A spur-of-the-moment run that Dan encouraged me to go on after dinner was simmering on the stove, Cora was asleep, and Ina was watching Winnie the Pooh

It had been a few months since I had run and I forgot just how therapeutic it is. I love T25, how much stronger I am getting, and how it works in my current life/schedule, but I look forward to the day that I can run consistently again. 

- That all the Christmas presents we ordered are here! We have our first family Christmas this weekend and UPS was cutting it close. Whew.

- Speaking of family Christmas - I took a vacation day tomorrow. Yay for 3 day weekends! 

- This post that made me laugh out loud this morning.

- Dan smoked two chickens on Monday, which have provided us dinner the past three nights. I used the chicken to make chicken pot pie soup and BBQ chicken quinoa casserole. YUM.

What are you thankful for?

Have a lovely weekend. <3
