Thankful Thursday

I love linking up for Thankful Thursday, hosted by Joanna from It’s great to carve out a little bit of time each week to just appreciate the good things in your life.

Here’s what I’m thankful for this week:

  • My morning walks with Brian and the dogs at the local park. Brian has to practically drag me out of bed every morning because the bed is so cozy, but once I’m up I’m good. And then we get to spend some quality time together while we watch the dogs play. It’s the perfect way to start the day.
  • The morning walks I started taking with my Dad this week. We go after my walk at the park with Brian and the pups, and I love spending that time with my Dad, enjoying each other’s company and our lovely town. This morning my Mom joined us, too!
On my walk with Mom and Dad this morning, Mom took this picture of our shadows.
  • Sleeping doggies and the cute noises they make.
I think Jethro is a tad too big for this chair, but he doesn’t seem to mind!
  • The dusting of snow we got yesterday. If it’s going to be winter and it’s going to be cold, it may as well be pretty. 🙂
  • My mom doing some of my laundry today. It got a little piled up and I was getting overwhelmed with the task of doing it all myself. Thanks, Mom!

What are you thankful for this Thursday?

    I feel the same way about the snow Jane. If it’s going to be freezing cold it should at least snow and look pretty. I was mesmerized by the trees yesterday.

    I miss walking on that path! What a great way to start the day. A doggy napping is one of the sweetest things. Rhody is snoring away right now while G naps too. Happy Thursday!

    Your dog looks like mine. Mine snores, dreams and twitches and must sleep while touching me.
