Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that hubby and I got a chance to meet Rhonda of Albom Adventures in San Francisco last Sunday evening. We had a great time. I’m not sure of the right term, but she’s a travel blogger that chronicles her travels on her blog. Her and her family have traveled to many different countries.

Here’s Rhonda and I at Zingari Ristorante on Post Street. The food was excellent and the company was even better.

I’m thankful that hubby is healing nicely and is feeling much better. He’s got another week plus and he’ll be cleared to return to his normal activities. He’s been a very good patient.

I’m thankful that I’m getting ready for another adventure. This time we’ll be traveling to Portland Oregon for the Rose Festival. During this time the International Order of the Blue Gavel will be conducting their spring regional meeting. As district director for District 19, it’s my responsibility to be in attendance. I’m looking forward to the festivities.

I’m thankful that I’m going to meet Sharla from BeadedTail and her two wonderful kitties, Angel and Isabella. We’ll be seeing them on our trip to Portland.

I’m thankful that I’m going to meet Kathe from It’s a Snap ! and her hubby Russell along with their kitty, Miss Lucy on our way back home. I love meeting bloggers and their kitties too.

I’m thankful we had the opportunity to stay at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel while visiting Rhonda and her husband. We’d never been there before and it was most elegant. Here are a few pictures. Image Sources: Easy to Book, Pinterest and Here Comes the Guide.

What are you thankful for today?

    Sounds like you've had a wonderful week with lots to be thankful for. The Rose Festival was one of my favorite things when we lived in Portland. I'm thankful for my new computer which makes reading and commenting on blogs so much easier 🙂

    I am thankful that our oldest granddaughter wanted to spend her summer with us. She is home from college and is working near by. She and Nana are spending a lot of time together doing girl stuff, but the best part is this I get a "Love you Papa" and a good night kiss every night.

    Thankful for our health, good friends and living in a beautiful part of the world! Cheers!

    Looking forward to seeing you and Zane zip up our driveway! Won't be long now!

    I am always thankful for good health, that is for sure. And for all my many friends and kitty kats. So glad you had such a good time with Rhonda. It is always fun to meet other bloggers. Can't wait to hear about your visit with Sharla, Angel and Isabella. Now that will be fun. :d

    Oh my gosh that hotel is amazing! I so want to meet some of my blogging friends in real life.

    I hope you take pictures of the rose festival. I would like to see what that is all about 🙂

    Looks as you enjoyed yourself. I'm thankful for this past year, according to my doctor it's been on borrowed time. But I'll take every minute the good Lord gives me.

  9. Traveling Bells says:

    Great post. I also love meeting blogger friends in the real. Wink, wink. Lovely location.

    So glad Zane is doing well. I knew he would. I look forward to the next adventures of you two.

    Big hugs, honey…

    Glad you had a wonderful weekend meeting Rhonda! What a lovely hotel! It won't be long now before I get to meet you too! 😀 I'm thankful for that and for a long weekend at home with hubby although I was supposed to be in Texas but plans fell through. Angel is very happy I'm home though!

    You will love this term. A blog that I follow calls a time when she meets a blogger a "blate" like a "date" but with a "bl" I LOVE IT!! How much fun is that that you get to meet these great people? What a blast! You have so many fun adventures to look forward to! I am thankful that we have someone here fixing our air conditioning which decided to die at the first heat wave of the year. 86 humid…oh so great for my kidneys…NOT! 🙁 catchatwithcarenandcody

    sounds like a good trip and how fun that you have another coming up. Good for your husband following doctors orders. Most men aren't so good at that 🙂

  13. Linda says:

    Such a great post and lovely photo, Sandee. I think that people who are thankful are the happiest people. Thank you so much for sharing.

  14. Rhonda Albom says:

    Thanks for sharing our photo. It was great meeting you too, and dinner was quite divine, as was the hotel. I love the Sir Francis Drake, and will be sharing about it in a few weeks. I am quite a bit behind. Hope you next adventures are as much fun as ours was.

    Hi Sandee, it must be really nice to meet up with other bloggers, especially if you get to stay in such grand hotels! I'm happy to hear that your husband is recovering well and has been a good patient. He'll be able to relieve you of kitchen duties very soon, no doubt.

      I've met many bloggers over the years and it has been most wonderful. Hubby is doing great. He goes back to the doctor this Friday and I'm sure he'll be cleared. 🙂
