thankful thursday

Of late I've been quiet here as my mind has been focused on things that don't necessarily warrant a mention, or warrant mention but I've chosen to spare you. Or, I suspect, aren't of much interest to anyone but me (and occasionally even I am not interested!).

But there is plenty of thanks to offer up today:
I had two days of time alone at home while Ken tended to a friend dealing with surgery details. I get so much done when there aren't any interruptions!
Ken is now home (insert smiley face)
Ash Wednesday ended up being a far more spiritually-colored day than I anticipated it would. I appreciate that God continues to surprise me in pleasant ways.
Cross stitch project #2 will probably get finished today. I say that having thought that I would start on it about four hours ago, and haven't yet had a moment to get to it (translation: interruptions!)
A friend was giving away a television, and we were first to say "we'll take it!" Now it's time for us to share the wealth and give away whichever one of ours becomes redundant.
While Ken was gone I was dependent upon others for transportation to and from church for shroving and ashing. Those who provided said transportation did so with genuine gladness.
My office is still pretty clean from last week's purge!
My dogs may sometimes drive me crazy when their waste management systems are all on different schedules, but they light up my life.

The Pampered Chef. I don't do justice to the opportunities they provide to help me succeed. I am the only one standing in the way of that success, and I'm soooo grateful that the PC family never gives up on me in spite of myself.

My parish family. We had a great progressive dinner last Sunday, and it was a wonderful time of mixing and munching for everyone.
And, as always, I am thankful for you and to you for stopping by.

What a great list! I am with you on getting a break when the hubs is away - I get so much housework done then. For some reason I just don't want to dust & vacuum when he's home. Well, to be frank I don't really EVER want to do it :)

I'll echo the Bug. LOVE some time at home without the hubs, and equally glad when he comes back! Such a lovely feeling!

we do get so much more done when our men are out of pocket, don't we!
