Thankful Thursday


Here's what I am thankful for this week:
  • crochet
  • cool changes, rain and not so muggy weather
  • my boys, when they aren't bickering with one another
  • receiving lots of lovely cuddles and head butts from C.K. He has been super smoochy lately.
  • shopping for fun and finding bargains. I bought an old crock pot from an Opp Shop for $8. I made a yummy Beef and Cashew dish in it. It takes a little longer to cook than my other slow cooker but that's okay. I just let things cool longer that's all.

What are you thankful for this week?

Two more squares to go and I can join them all up.
I know the picture doesn't show it too well but the background is a nice pale blue.
