Thankful Thursday

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.

I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.

Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.

Today I’m thankful for summer. Even though we have heatwaves here and there it’s still a fun time filled with boating, lots of good books, and tons of wonderful summer food. It’s time to get outdoors and enjoy Mother Nature.

I’m thankful that we are retired and have found many ways to keep ourselves busy. We vowed we wouldn’t sit in rockers in front of the television when we retired. We’ve not done that.

What are you thankful for today?

    I am also thankful that I am retired. Too many interesting things to keep me busy until I have no time to sit and watch TV. Enjoy your boating, Sandee.

    I am also thankful it is summer which eventually arrived yesterday! It is forecast to reach 80F by the beginning of next week which is way higher than we are used to! Normal summer temp for us is nearer 65.

    It will be nice to be retired, as I also have plenty to keep me busy, but still a few years to go…
    I’m thankful for good health, a good if stressful job 🙂

    Age has changed over the years. People in their 70’s now look more like 50’s, not like the seniors from when Mom is a kid. Seniors keep going and doing and we love that. No idea why retired people used to just stop doing life, it was a different time. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

    I am smiling because while reading your post, I am in my rocker, with TV on, chatting with E friends.. butt I did walk the dog and do my pool excercise.. both of those are outside. ha ha

    I am thankful to have found a vet practice that is entirely holistic. The pups don’t care, well, maybe they do since they always get tons of great (natural) treats when they are there and the vet tech sits on the floor with them and they’re never up on a stainless steel table, and they use the encourge and reward method instead of the force and get it done in a hurry method. Hmm, maybe the pups like it more than I thought.

  7. Eastside Cats says:

    Oh sure, rub in the whole ‘retired’ thing!
    Hahahaha!
    Because Summer isn’t Winter, I love it. I love being outside, hearing birdsong and listening the sound of leaves rustling in the wind.

    Sad to say, my sixty year old husband is content just sitting in front of the computer or television. But I am thankful we enjoy lots of the same stuff. And he doesn’t mind if I go off by myself sometimes. On that note, I may go for a hike at the gorgeous arboretum nearby. ~hugs~ Have a great day, my dear.

    • Sandee says:

      Often when someone works all the time they enjoy just sitting when at home. We did that for a bit and then decided it was time to do fun things. Your hubby will probably do the same. Enjoy your hike. Hugs. 🙂

    As my sweetie says “Retirement is way under rated”! We are also enjoying our free time to travel, make art and work on many home improvements! Next week I’ll post our bathroom improvements! Cheers and enjoy the outdoors! xoxox

    I always thought about being retired and all I would do and then ended up pretty handicapped after my accident. Ah well I did so much in my life I have great memories and one of them is boating. Yay boats

  11. Patricia says:

    Can’t say I am thankful for summer. If I could skip July and August I would, it is just too hot and humid! But, I am thankful for the life I have. I am certainly thankful that I am retired. I love it! Never had a job that I loved. There was one that I liked…

  12. ghostmmnc says:

    I’m liking this summer, too. It’s been fairly moderate temps lately, with occasional rain showers.
    Sounds like y’all are having a fun summer, too! <3

  13. KB says:

    I am thankful for summer too! You most certainly have not retired to your rockers. I have the impression that you live a very fun life!

  14. Jan K says:

    I know too many people who spend way too much time watching TV, glad to hear you have resisted that! Hubby and I watch about an hour in the evenings and that’s it, and usually just have the news on when we’re doing other things. I don’t think that will change once we retire – we like to keep busy!
