Thankful Thursday

This week I am very thankful

~~ that I only had to use the porta-potty ONCE while we were at Thunder Over Louisville

~~ that I am finally feeling like this head and chest cold is going away; my symptoms are about a day behind Thomas' so tomorrow I should really be feeling well

~~ for the bundle of fur lying on my chest and purring

~~ for the forecast for this weekend which says we'll see 87° and lots of sunshine

~~ that Thomas is feeling so much better, because he isn't going to take a day off work if he doesn't have to, and I hate seeing him go to work when he feels bad (makes me feel REALLY guilty, too! lol)

And I guess that's it for now. I've just about caught up with most of the blogs I read, and that's no small feat. I'm looking forward to getting back to my interrupted spring cleaning, and I hope it's dry enough to mow tomorrow because my back yard has grass that is almost knee-high. ('Course I'm short!) I've done a lot of reading while I was sick this week and listened to some audio books as well. I think I can get rid of a few of them that I know I don't just HAVE to have in my library -- and that will make room for buying more, don't you know!

Speaking of books, some good ones I've read or re-read lately:

The Coldest Winter by David Halberstam;
The Best and The Brightest by David Halberstam;
Legacy of Ashes by Tim Weiner;
The Spies of Warsaw by Alan Furst;
All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren, and;
Indemnity Only by Sara Paretsky.

I need to blog some reviews of these on my book blog because they were really good.

So glad you're feeling better. And I'm really looking forward to 80° temperatures! Yay!

Stephanie said...

Glad you're better!

This weather is awesome!

Haha... I am so happy I didn't have to use the port-o-potties at all this year. Two years ago I had to go and they were overflowing and out of toilet paper.

Anne said...

So glad you are feeling better. Now, I am planning a trip in your area on Derby day and will leave on Mothers Day. Would love to see you and Eler Beth and I know Vivian would love to see ya'll also. Anne

Janie said...

Awww Gee, sounds like all of you have been sick. Sure hope you are all better soon. Blessings, Janie

Paula said...

I would rather take a beating then go into a port-o--pottie. Maybe comes from growing up with an outhouse, ya think? Glad you are feeling better.

Thanks for reminding me that I should make time to be thankful for something every day!

DB said...

Those are all fine things to be thankful for. And I like your selection of books.


Indigo said...

Wonderful thankfuls! Glad to hear everyone is feeling better. I would be hard pressed myself to use the porta potties. (Hugs)Indigo

Traci said...

Love your thankfuls! I have dropped the ball on this and need to pick it up again.

Missie said...

I'm glad you're feeling better!

Enjoy your weekend.

Lynne said...

So glad you're feeling better. Boy your book readings put me to shame. I'm trying to remember the last book I read and when I read it, lol!

Lisa said...

Glad you enjoyed Thunder... we both agree on trying to avoid those porta potties... oh my goodness what an experience those things are. LOL. It was really crowded this year but we enjoyed every minute of it. We got there late this year due to Maggie having her pups and so it was hard to find a spot.
