Things I'm Thankful for...

My family. We had a great day together yesterday. Everyone is healthy and happy and it really was a lot of fun. We played a beanbag baseball with the entire family and my neice Melissa hit a grand slam homerun. She was so excited.

The weather. I could not have asked for better weather for Thanksgiving weekend! Sunny and hot! I felt more like laying on the dock suntanning than pulling it out of the water and it was so perfect for our family pictures yesterday. We were actually looking for shade.

Health. While I have a bit of a sore back from all the work we did this weekend, I can't complain. My Mom took my blood pressure yesterday and it was 106 over 64. I had been concerned because I have been having pressurey type headaches lately that I thought were related to my neck problems but I was a little worried they could be high blood pressure.

Friends. Not only my wonderful real life friends but my fanastic on line friends. Next weekend we're having a bunch of people here for a 4 wheeler ride. Carey? Breezy? Wanna go? We're going to be going up to the tower again.

My Favourite Websites. OT, BNB, Blogworld, Facebook and a couple others. Without them I'd have to do a lot more housework.

Phone Call. The one that came in last week to say that I don't have to show up for Jury Duty tomorrow morning. I think it would have been interesting to see how the process worked but I wouldn't have wanted to end up involved in a gruesome trial.

Clorox Wipes. I have containers everywhere now. They're so handy for quick cleanups.

Hope all the Canuck bloggers had a great weekend and are sufficiently stuffed. :D

You Canadians and your silly October Thanksgiving :) Glad you had a good time and the weather was perfect. I love when the weather is in sync with plans.

Soudns like you had a great Thanksgiving. We did cornish hens on the BBQ. Yum.

106 over 64?? Are you sure? 120 over 80 is considered great BP. 106/64 sounds way low to me.

Or is that some weird 'merican reading? *squinty eyes*

Happy belated Thanksgiving, Lights! I actually forgot about the holiday but wound up phoning my Evil Sister in St Catherines just because and she was so happy that I remembered to call! I didn't have the heart to tell her my timing was merely a coincidence.

Hooray for good weather! I had lower blood pressure just like that for years. It's just a low normal, MC.

I have never 4-wheeled. *hint*

No more OT for me. I want more webplaces to go, though. Blogworld is great! Also like BNB, but Circle Of seems to be mostly abandoned.

I got Clorox wipes mixed up in my mind with those little bathroom wipes, and I was wondering why you needed them all over your house. !!! Lol - you're not that old, right?

Tummy, it's not US that's silly. At least we've got enough time between Thanksgiving and Christmas to work up a hunger for turkey. :D

Yep, 106 over 64...my blood pressure tends to be low like that normally. My Mom has problems with high blood pressure so she worries that I will too. She's very jealous.

Swami, if you come for a visit, we'll take you 4 wheeling too! LOL about mixing up the wipes. I'll make sure I keep them separated. And no, I'm not that old!
