Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that we have our mechanic working on our yearly maintenance. It’s almost time for lots of cruising and we need to make sure the boat is in good working order.

I’m thankful that we’ve decided to install a Purasan Waste Treatment System in our boat. This eliminates pumping out every five days or so when we’re cruising. Often we’re at our island and want to stay more than five days, but can’t. Now we can. This is long overdue.

I’m thankful that we are going to go on a cruise this coming weekend to Marina West Yacht Club. I’ll not be around much Friday through Sunday. I’ll catch up with everyone on Monday.

I’m thankful that you’re all patient with me about the boat pictures. The blinds are still not installed so you’ll have to be patient with me a bit longer.

I’m thankful that spring is almost here. It’s been warm each day and the heater doesn’t kick on until well after dark. Spring is my favorite season of all the seasons. I also noticed some blossoms on some trees on our way home from our boat on Monday afternoon. That made me smile.

I’m thankful for Netflix and Amazon Prime. Hubby and I enjoy watching shows each evening. It’s a most wonderful thing to do.

What are you thankful for today?

    Happy to hear the blossoms are coming. I don't think they are up north yet, but that moment when you see the blooms peeking through the dismal ground up there, really does rock. πŸ™‚ Have fun this weekend!

      It's springlike here and I'm loving it. Hubby likes all the seasons, but spring is my very favorite. πŸ™‚

      I like all of the seasons if I live someplace warm. πŸ˜‰

    • February 12, 2016 9:55 am at 9:55 am

      And for the most part you do live somewhere warm year around. Good for you. πŸ™‚

    Fall in New England is my favorite season. I adore the crisp, fall air and the vibrant seasonal colors. ahhh…

    After that it is ANY season in the Caribbean. I adore the rustling palm fronds, sandy toes and the Caribbean colors. ahhh…


    Have a loevly day hon. big hugs xoxo

      If I don't have to be on a ship I'd like the Caribbean. No more ships for me. I've never been so sick in my entire life. πŸ™‚

    Spring is our favorite time of the year with all the new growth and warmer temps.We love Netflix and watch it all the time. We might have to look into Amazon Prime. Sounds like lots of good boating in your future. Sandee, you and Zane have a great day.

    • February 11, 2016 9:54 am at 9:54 am

      It's like the world comes alive. That's what I like about spring. Everything comes alive. πŸ™‚

    Spring is my favorite season, too, and I am grateful it's almost here. And I am grateful to the mild winter and that fact that I'm up early to go on a tour today of a brewery.

    • February 11, 2016 9:54 am at 9:54 am

      Have a great tour. πŸ™‚

    Warm weather and tree blossoms?!?! How marvelous for you! It's still blistering cold here, but I'm glad it's looking springlike somewhere. It will get to us eventually.
    Have fun cruising this weekend!

    • February 11, 2016 9:55 am at 9:55 am

      It will indeed get to you eventually. Living in most parts of California we have an early spring. πŸ™‚

    Wait an island? Have you shared pictures? Because I want to see! I love your thankful posts. As I read it I always take a moment to remind myself of my blessings. Have a great day my friend!

    • February 11, 2016 9:55 am at 9:55 am

      It's an island that we are members of. We don't own it, we are just members. There is no power or water. It's a dark island, but a fun one. πŸ™‚

    I'm thankful for modern medicine today, Sandee. I'm laying her tied down with a catheter hanging from my bed. My cardiovascular doctor has arranged for me to be in a holding pattern waiting for him and his team to attempt to repair an endoleak in my AAA (abdominal aortic artery aneurysm ).
    Got go, they're afterm, to take me away.

    • February 11, 2016 9:57 am at 9:57 am

      I hope your procedure turns out well. πŸ™‚

    I am thankful that my sweetie is happy and healthy! He can fix almost anything and loves home projects! I am one lucky woman! We love Netflix also! Nothing like going to the movies in your jammies! Cheers and enjoy your day!

    • February 11, 2016 9:57 am at 9:57 am

      I love the jammies and Netflix. Now you're talking. πŸ™‚

  13. February 11, 2016 7:32 am at 7:32 am

    Hello, Sandee. I am thankful list is very long. Looking forward to a photo of your boat. Have a beautiful day!

    • February 11, 2016 9:57 am at 9:57 am

      I'm looking forward to getting the pictures of the boat up too. It's been way too long. πŸ™‚

  14. February 11, 2016 7:34 am at 7:34 am

    I am thankful I am not in a lot of pain after my procedure yesterday…woooo hooo!!! Hoping you have a FABULOUS weekend on the boat! I am sure you will! xoxoxoxo DakotasDen

    • February 11, 2016 9:58 am at 9:58 am

      Good for you Caren. I was sending you good thoughts all day yesterday. πŸ™‚

  15. February 11, 2016 7:42 am at 7:42 am

    Other than being grateful for the continued good health of my family, I'm grateful it's only in the 40's where I am. In Gainesville, where my youngest attends grad school, it was 29 degrees this morning. Yikes!

    Glad you're having warm weather. If I can't have it, I'm glad somebody nice does πŸ™‚

    • February 11, 2016 9:58 am at 9:58 am

      Thanks cube. We love the beginning of spring. It's not official, but we can feel the spring. πŸ™‚

  16. February 11, 2016 7:45 am at 7:45 am

    With no shades on the windows, it's no wonder that there are no pix.

    • February 11, 2016 9:59 am at 9:59 am

      It's just not ready for pictures. I hope very soon. πŸ™‚

  17. February 11, 2016 10:21 am at 10:21 am

    I am always inspired by your weekly Thursday post. Yea for longer stays out cruising. I am thankful for family this week, as it is the last week we will all be together for a long time.

    • February 11, 2016 10:51 am at 10:51 am

      I know you're going to miss your girls something awful. Enjoy this time together. πŸ™‚

  18. February 11, 2016 1:54 pm at 1:54 pm

    Stop the excuses, I want to see boat pictures.

    • February 12, 2016 9:46 am at 9:46 am

      No excuses Joe. We don't have the blinds yet. πŸ™‚

    You're just building up the suspense on the boat. Tell them to hurry up with those blinds already. You've got blog pals that want to see…lol

    • February 12, 2016 9:47 am at 9:47 am

      We'll pop over this afternoon and ask since we're going to be so close. πŸ™‚

  20. February 11, 2016 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm

    I wish Spring would spring more excitements and pleasant experiences to you. I always adore your Thanks Givings.

    • February 12, 2016 9:47 am at 9:47 am

      Thanks my friend. Spring rocks for me. πŸ™‚

    I am thankful for roadside assistance on my auto insurance. The other day we came out of a store only to find our car in the parking lot with a flat tire and a nail sticking out of the side. My wife reminded me that we had roadside assistance, so we called. A half hour later the service man showed up, changed our tire and sent us on our way. I love it when that happens. We went straight to Sam's Club, got a new tire. Since the tire was only a few months old, the new one cost me less than $20. I love it when that happens too. Have a blessed day.

    • February 12, 2016 9:48 am at 9:48 am

      Wow, you did well. You also know some folks would have complained about this. Not look at the good, just the inconvenience. Bless their hearts. πŸ™‚

  22. February 11, 2016 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm

    Another fun weekend away? I'm thankful you're able to do that because I know how very much you enjoy it which makes my heart happy! I'm thankful tomorrow is Friday. That's about all I got this week. It's been a very long one.

    Enjoy your Valentine's weekend!

    • February 12, 2016 9:49 am at 9:49 am

      Awww, thanks Sharla. I do love our boat so very much. You have a wonderful weekend too. Scritches to the babies. πŸ™‚

  23. February 11, 2016 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm

    My husband keeps talking about getting a boat…I'm not sure he realizes all the work that goes into it!

    • February 12, 2016 9:49 am at 9:49 am

      You either do the work yourself or you hire the work out. Boats are not cheap. πŸ™‚

  24. February 11, 2016 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm

    Today i am thankful for good neighbors. Your boat pictures are being awaited with baited breath!

    • February 12, 2016 9:50 am at 9:50 am

      Good neighbors rock. We have some really great neighbors too. πŸ™‚

  25. February 12, 2016 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm

    So you'll have a mini waste treatment system right on your boat? That's pretty neat. I didn't know they had those.

    • February 13, 2016 8:29 am at 8:29 am

      They do and they are awesome. They are approved by the state of California and that's not an easy task. πŸ™‚
