Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that hubby and I are pretty much set for our trip to Portland in June. One more hotel reservation and we’ll have the entire trip mapped out.

I’m thankful that I may get the opportunity to meet another blogger in May. She’s hails from New Zealand and her and her hubby are world travelers. We are planning on spending the day in the city and visit. We will also treat them to lunch or dinner.

I’m thankful for the walks hubby and I take each morning. We walk and talk and then walk and talk some more. We so enjoy spending our time together.

I’m thankful that we can go to the boat this coming weekend. It seems like it’s been years since we’ve spent the weekend on the boat. We heard from our mechanic yesterday and he thinks he’ll be done by Friday. We are thrilled.

I’m thankful that hubby and I decided to let regular television programing go and just stick with Amazon Prime and Netflix. No commercials and we so enjoy all the shows we’ve been watching.

I’m thankful that I had a great conversation with my sister the other day. We don’t see each other often enough, but we both know how much we love each other.

What are you thankful for today?

    Wow, I am honoured to be listed here, unless of course you are meeting other bloggers from NZ in May. We are so looking forward to meeting you too.

      No, I'm talking about you Rhonda. I don't know any other Rhonda that's a world traveler. πŸ™‚

    I met Rhonda in Auckland a few years ago. It was fun to meet a fellow blogger. Have a great time out on the boat this weekend! Cheers – Ellen

    • April 7, 2016 at 2:01 pm

      Well, we're not sure the boat will be done. There was a cruise this weekend, but we didn't sign up because we weren't sure the boat would be ready. Looks like it might not be ready. πŸ™‚

    I think it's awesome that you and your husband have such a great relationship. That's the sign of a great marriage.

    • April 7, 2016 at 2:01 pm

      We do have a great relationship. It's wonderful. πŸ™‚

    I am close to dropping regular television/cable as well. The bill is just not worth it anymore. But with 12 weeks at home coming up, might miss it??

    I am thankful today to be one day closer to September 2. One day closer to the end of this pregnancy. I am thankful for my health and my family.

    • April 7, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      You're getting closer and closer. I remember wanting to be done with pregnancy too. πŸ™‚

    You are living the retirement Bryan and I hope to have. Doing things you love, enjoying each other's company. While we are not in any way wishing away this time with our kids, we are looking forward to spending our days together.
    Enjoy your weekend on the "new" boat!

    • April 7, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      You'll get there and you'll love it. It's worth the wait. πŸ™‚

    I am thankful for all these cats that keep me company all day long even if they do want to eat all day too. I am thankful for our blogging friends and just for being on this side of dirt. Sandee, you and Zane have a great day and week end too.

    YAY you cut the cable cord! We have all of our shows and so many less fees. Still loving our decision 2 years out. Although we did add Hulu into the mix and that is a nice addition πŸ™‚

    • April 7, 2016 at 2:07 pm

      We didn't have television at all for about five years. They we got it again and wondered why. So, in May when this contract runs out the cable will be gone. πŸ™‚

    I am thankful that I know a couple who enjoy each others company with great understanding. Your love for your sister is so great that it doesn't need physical contact and presence.
    Have a fabulous day!

    • April 7, 2016 at 2:10 pm

      You are right on both counts my friend. πŸ™‚

    I could easily give up regular tv since most of it I don't care for. First I would have to give up being married because he loves his dish network with the serius radio channels

    • April 7, 2016 at 3:49 pm

      Well, that's why he has a man cave? I'm guessing so. πŸ™‚

  23. April 7, 2016 at 4:24 pm

    Oh what fun that you might get to meet a New Zealand blogger! That will be a blast! We are thankful for wonderful friends like YOU who helped make Cody's birthday so special! We love you!! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

    • April 8, 2016 at 6:53 am

      I love making birthday's special. I love Cody and Dakota too. Well and I love you too Caren. πŸ˜‰

  24. April 7, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    I'm very thankful for Roche'!

    • April 8, 2016 at 6:54 am

      You hardly ever talk about him anymore. I sure miss you you know. πŸ™‚

  25. April 7, 2016 at 11:08 pm

    I don't miss tv either. Between Netflix, Amazon, and audiobooks through my library's overdrive app, I've got all the entertainment I need.

    This week I'm thankful for sunshine and warmer temps.

    • April 8, 2016 at 6:54 am

      That's where we are. I don't know what we were thinking when we reinstalled cable. We weren't thinking. πŸ™‚

  26. April 8, 2016 at 3:26 am

    You are indeed blessed with a beautiful relationship with your husband. I am also thankful for so many blessings, my husband and 2 sons. Thankful for good friends and health, etc. Have a beautiful day!

    • April 8, 2016 at 6:55 am

      You have a fun life Nancy. I enjoy coming along virtually. πŸ™‚

  27. April 8, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    Walking is a great way to get some exercise. I hope your boat was ready, and that you were able to spend the weekend on it.

    • April 8, 2016 at 4:13 pm

      It wasn't ready. It's in dry dock getting some packing done. Perhaps next weekend. πŸ™‚
