Thankful Thursdays #46: free stuff

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: Squeee! I got free stuff in the mail!  I won Renee’s giveaway for a bunch of NuNaturals stevia products and I’m SOOOO STOKED to try them all, especially the baking blend.

Friday: Squeeee! I won another giveaway for Gold Medal white whole wheat flour and a canister from Pam!  I LOVE FREE STUFF! :D

Saturday:  Country music.  Although I used buy it on CD, for some reason I never listen to it on the radio, despite liking it fairly well.  I usually only listen to rock & pop stations, but I know that music too well and have had to start listening to country at work when I’m not listening to audiobooks.  Why is knowing music too well a problem?  Because if I know a song, I can’t help but sing along and annoy all my co-workers on the silent floor!  So I turned to country in desperation because I can’t sing along to what I don’t know.  It’s working like a charm so far, and I’m getting a lot of new favorites.  This is near the top for me right now–gives me goosebumps every time!

Sunday: Sleep.  I’d rather not have to sleep but since I do, I’m thankful that I got some extra rest on Sunday because I was past exhaustion.

Monday: I choose not to have affiliates or get paid for blogging (though this may change some day), but I was thankful for an exception this time because it meant my birthday celebration was paid for by someone else. Thank you, Eggland’s Best!

Tuesday: I had just enough disposable pie containers left from my cake-selling days to divvy up the leftover birthday cake to co-workers, thus sparing my arteries and thighs from eternal damnation.

Wednesday:  Absolutely perfect weather.  Not too hot.  Not too cold. Juuuust right. :)  I love fall!

I know not every state enjoys a crisp, cool fall like we do in Kansas.  Do you have fall where you live?


About Veronica

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. I love free stuff too. I just won some half-pops from Amy at Very Culinary and some rice products from Joanne at Eats Well With Others–isn’t that the best? It’s one of the perks of blogging that was totally unexpected and a wonderful surprise. =)


  2. Awesome on the free stuff! That’s one thing I miss about blogging is having contests, giveaways, etc. Though I may be back sooner than I think because FB is becoming too messed up for me and I want to be on there less and less.
    Another song by Toby Keith that I just love is American Soldier (of course). Check out the video but, you may want tissues nearby ;)
    Today is the last day of our Indian summer, it’s supposed to drop way down in temps. We were lucky to have temps in the high 70’s/low 80’s this time of year (very unusual). The cool temps. are better for hunting though…lol!


    • I think you’d have a very popular blog if you started one and I would be your first subscriber! I know what you mean about f/b, I’ve backed off a lot to stay out of the drama. Love American Soldier! :)


  3. I love free stuff! As for fall, I am still waiting for it to arrive! It’s supposed to cool down in the 70s next week finally. I’m over the 80s and 90s (and running my air conditioner!).
