Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that today is Thanksgiving. Hubby and I are going to have our Thanksgiving dinner on a train today. The train goes 32 miles into the foothills and we’ll be enjoying some wine and a fine dinner. It’s a three hour trip. No shopping, no preparation, no cooking and no cleanup.

I’m thankful that our boat will be going in for its final face lift on December 7th. We had an appointment with the guy that does the work and we’re good to go. I’ll take before and after pictures so you can see what got done. This will be a huge transformation. As you know I can’t wait.

I’m thankful we decided to take out the old analog television and put a flat screen HD television. We don’t watch much television on the boat as there are tons of other things to do, but there are times we’d love to see the news at least.

I’m thankful that I can wish everyone that celebrates Thanksgiving, a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving. May you enjoy whatever you have planned and have a wonderful meal. We all have much to be thankful for.

So what are you most thankful for today?

    That sounds like a fun way to spend Thanksgiving. For the first time in over 30 years I am not cooking dinner today. We're going to my daughters for our Thanksgiving dinner so I'm thankful for that. I'm also thankful for having the day off

    I love the idea about the train ride. What a wonderful thing to do. I'm thankful that my mother's estate is almost finished. Whoosh.

    What a great idea to go for a train ride. Sandee, we are grateful for lots of things and one of those is having you as our friends. We are thankful that all the kitties came her to live. We are thankful for all the blogging friends. We are thankful for the roof over our head. We are thankful to be on this side of dirt. Anyway, Sandee you and Zane have a fantastic train ride.

  12. November 26, 2015 at 6:43 am

    Boy, does that train/dinner ride sound like fun! I would do that in a heart beat.

    Have a good day and I know you are thankful year around…on Thursdays. It's always nice to come here and be reminded of that more often than just in November.

    • November 26, 2015 at 10:18 am

      It's been a long time since I was on a dinner train, but it was a most fun experience. Happy Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚

  13. November 26, 2015 at 6:49 am

    You'd be happier not seeing the news.

    • November 26, 2015 at 10:18 am

      This is true. Very true. Happy Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚

  14. November 26, 2015 at 7:00 am

    What a wonderful day you have planned. I am thankful for our heath and hubby and I are eating alone and watching a pay per view movie on tv before a game he wants to watch comes on. Dinner is already almost done and it is only 9 AM. We did a ham this year.
    He is asst manager at a store and had to work today from 5 am to 2 pm. We do what we have to. Have an amazing day on the train. I will be thinking of you. Happy Thanksgiving!

    • November 26, 2015 at 10:19 am

      I'm sorry hubby had to work today, but you'll have a great dinner for him. He'll appreciate that. Happy Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚

    Big hugs, honey…

      Minor cook rocks honey. Happy Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚

    Oh, it sounds like you and hubby are going to have a great Thanksgiving Day, and I cannot wait to see the before and after pictures of your boat.

    I'm grateful for my wonderful son, parents, and friends like you! Oh, and Simon of course.

    Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving day and evening.

    (And if you guys are on the boat this evening, blow a kiss to the stars for me.)

    "Huge Hugs"

      We had a fabulous day yesterday Annie. It was great fun and very relaxing. Huge hugs back. πŸ™‚

    Sounds a wonderful way to celebrate your Thanksgiving Sandee. Hope you & Mr. Plus πŸ˜€ had a great time.

    • November 27, 2015 at 12:48 am

      Plus is your surname isn't it? I assume your nickname is Comedy? πŸ˜‰

    • November 27, 2015 at 12:49 am

      Oops… I messed up my emoticon should've been πŸ™‚

    • November 27, 2015 at 12:07 pm

      Zane and I had a great time. πŸ™‚

    • November 27, 2015 at 12:07 pm

      It's Zane and Sandee Clark. I thought you knew that. πŸ™‚

    • November 27, 2015 at 12:08 pm

      Okay, glad you got your emoticon right. πŸ™‚

    • November 27, 2015 at 7:42 pm

      No I never knew what your surname was. I didn't even know Zane's name. I'm probably not very observant. I even called Michelle by my ex-wife's name once when we'd only been married for a short time. She never forgets that one either. If anyone's talking about not remembering names she'll point to me & say "Yeah he even called me by his ex-wife's name once". A woman's scorn is eternal I think… πŸ˜€

    The train trip sounds divine! I wish we had something like that around here. Our T-day was wonderful and delicious. My parents are getting a bit more frail with each passing year but they are still doing pretty good for their ages and are able to get around okay… and I am so thankful to still have them with me.

    Can't wait to see you boat re-do!

    big hugs xoxo

    • November 27, 2015 at 12:08 pm

      I know you're enjoying your parents. They don't hang around long enough. Mine are long gone. πŸ™‚

  22. November 27, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    That train trip should be really good and quite a unique experience.

    • November 27, 2015 at 4:13 pm

      It was Binky. The ride was fun, the weather was chilly but sunny, and the food was great. πŸ™‚

    • November 27, 2015 at 7:43 pm

      That's one thing I miss since we left Brisbane & came back to Tasmania. We have no trains here. Or I should say no passenger trains. There are freight trains only.

  23. November 27, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    I'm so glad you enjoyed your train ride! That really sounded like fun!

    • November 28, 2015 at 7:28 am

      It was very fun. We had a great time and are planning on doing the ride again next year. Make it a Thanksgiving tradition. πŸ™‚
