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: Hot pads. When I remember to use them. ;)
Friday: My crockpot! I have a feeling it’s going to get me through the winter with meals because I’m no longer home to cook dinner (or do you call it supper? My in-laws call the evening meal supper–I think it’s a regional thing but they only live two hours from us!). It’s nice coming home to the smell of beef stew and knowing my husband had something nutritious, rather than the jalapeño potato chips and Coke he’s been known to eat in place of a decent meal.
Saturday: Seeing daylight after getting off work. On weekdays I work second shift, but on weekends it’s first shift and it’s always nice to get off on Saturday and see a blue sky.
Sunday: For weeks I was angry (angry, angry, angry, guilty, and sad–it was probably unhealthy) that I couldn’t make the morning worship services because I had to work, but now I’m focusing on being thankful that I at least get off in time to make it to the evening service.
Monday: OK, I have conflicting feelings about Pinterest (I’m addicted) but I’m mostly thankful for it. It has been so much more helpful than bookmarking things and I’m actually making the recipes I’m saving now.
Tuesday: A wonderful dinner with a visiting preacher and his wife (here for a gospel meeting), our regular preacher and his wife, and the dear friend that first started the ball rolling in us becoming Christians by inviting us to church. We all met at Bagatelle Bakery, a new-to-me French bakery & restaurant, before the meeting. Good company, good food. It’s aaaaaaall good. :)
Wednesday: For my voice. I’m not the next American Idol, but I think I have a fairly nice voice and I really love to belt out hymns at church with it (though I do have to hold back from going all Mariah Carey on the hymns as I have a tendency to ride all over the scale when I’m singing slower songs at home). We don’t need a beautiful voice to please God when we sing his praises, but I do appreciate that I was blessed with one.
This is an old video I uploaded to MySpace a few years ago, and it is so NOT me, but if you want to hear my voice, hear you go. The goofyness is all me, but rarely can I pull off this attitude without laughing. Watching it, I am shocked that I didn’t even pull a single smile! I think Iwas able to act like I thought I was “all that” without cracking up because I was only singing for a camera and not a live audience!
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Ry loved your video.. not even 3 yet andalready like pretty women…geez!
There are sooo many possibilitieswith the crockpot, i don’t know how people live without them.:)
It was probably more that I reminded him of a cartoon with my extreme facial expressions. :) Glad I could help entertain him–that gives me the warm fuzzies.
I LOOOOOOVED your singing video! You are so cute and funny, and you have a great voice!
Thank you, sweetie. I can’t tell you how much I’m having to hold back from putting myself down right now! lol
Love your attitude in the video…lol!! Great voice too :)
Thanks, Suzie! :) These compliments are good practice for me to take them. It’s hard though.
I love my crockpot too! I’m keeping this window open so I can hear your voice later, kids are doing school so I have to wait!
Hope you enjoy, Debs! :)
oh Veronica, you have so many talents! really many gifts to be thankful for, I agree. thought I had many too but you might actually beat me :)
Oh, I doubt that. I don’t have many talents, just baking and can carry a tune. My hubby actually has more talents than me…though he doesn’t excel at all of them-hehe!
You tickle me….I’m amazed you didn’t spit out your gum while singing…not even one time! lol
PS….I love Pinterest too….I’ve pinned you there before. It is a fantastic place for filing your favorites from out on the world wide web!!
I have mad skills with the gum–haha! I have no idea why I didn’t spit it out before I started but oh well!
Oh My Veronica, you just made my week. I am not kidding. Let me just tell you all the things I love about this video:
1. I knew you had a pretty singing voice! I only heard it for the first time our last visit.
2. Dennis is rolling around in the background like this is either an every day occurrence or you just aren’t there.
3. I used to belt out Shania tunes when I was in high school.
4. You’re acting like you’re all that and a bag of chips.
5. I had to pause it to start making this list before I forgot some of it, and your face at the point in which I paused the video was PRICELESS.
6. You’re chewing GUM while performing. I’m pretty sure Shania would disapprove of that as being bad stage manners.
7. No wait, then you yank the gum out of your chomper, and start pulling it around for dramatic effect.
8. Your soulful conclusion.
And your comment made my week! This made me laugh so hard. I know I’m ridiculous…and all that and a bag of chips! haha Oh and yeah, when we are in the office, Dennis and I are hardly aware of each other. We really zone out into our own worlds. He’s usually playing the guitar and I don’t even realize it.
