Thankful Thursdays #37: nephew time

Posted on

I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving.  Here’s what I am thankful for this week!

Thursday: Day off! Day off!  I got a day off!  Squeeeeeeeeeeee!

Friday: Some down time chatting with my youngest sister.  We have never been close because of the gap in our ages, so we now live very separate lives and rarely talk, but I had the day off and happened to be at my parents’ house when she came over so we chillaxed together, eating brie and fig jam on crackers.  Lovely.

Saturday:  The discount meat shelf at Dillons.  It’s the main reason Dennis ever gets his meat requirement fulfilled.  If it weren’t for that shelf and my love of a sale, our weekly meat purchases would be rather pitiful.  I just don’t need it the same way he (thinks) he does. :)

Sunday: Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits.  And cheddar cheese.  Together.

Monday: Glee. I admit it.  I’m hooked.  I LOVE MUSICALS!  To me, Glee is like an ever-evolving musical.  I think the only way to make it better is to have all the show in song.  OK, that would probably be awful, cheesy, and really hard to do, but the more singing, the better, I say!  And this cast is mega-talented.

Tuesday: A wonderfully exhausting day with my precious nephew, Owen.

Wednesday:  That I got to return my nephew back to his parents.  I tell you what, kids are exhausting! lol

I have a kitchen addiction and love to collect & share recipes. My passion is baking but I love to cook as well. The only thing I don't like to do in the kitchen is wash dishes, but my husband generally does them for me in exchange for his dinner.

  1. awe…another great post! My 6 yr old nephew is coming to stay with us for 3 weeks while his parents go and pick up their new daughter! I am looking forward to it…but at the same time, wondering if my old body will be able to handle it! haha


  2. I’m glad you had fun with your nephew, even though it was exhausting! And brie and fig jam on crackers? Oooooooh . . .


  3. Oh I remember the days when I could give a kid back to their parents!!
    You look like you had fun in that pool!


  4. I am glad you had fun. Enjoy spending time with the little one, as he will grow fast. The fig jam sounds wonderful :)


  5. Yay for glee and cute nephews! I still have one more episode from last season to watch…gotta catch up before I see the movie!

    You and your sister sound like me and my sister (9 year age gap). I really need to make an effort to reach out more to here. Fig jam and brie should do the trick.


  6. "My Italian Smorgasbord" (aka Barbara)

    I like your list. It is full of food :) Kids are exhausting. Yepp. And, still, it’s impossible not to love them.

    Thank you for stopping by. I also want to try one of your cakes soon, possibly something easy to portion out and freeze as I am… you’ll never guess… on a low-carb diet. Sweets are the exception to the rule (which make me treasure them even more). Ciao!


  7. Glad you got to spend time with your sister and nephew :) I love triscuits too, there is another one I love but, can’t think of what kind at the moment. The pool looks lovely, it’s been too cool here to use mine :( I miss it…lol!
