thursday thirteen ~ giving Thanks

Last year...when I was a faithful little weblogger... and did Thursday Thirteens every Thursday... I even had themes.  My November theme was:

        Things I Am Thankful For

It seems to me a good idea once again this November.  (How in the world did it become November already??)

I am Thankful there are no more political commercials on television and radio.

I am Thankful for winding roads through magnificent mountains.

I am Thankful for Google, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, and Cruzio.

I am Thankful I have the right to vote.

I am Thankful for brisk clear mornings.

I am Thankful for warm hugging.
 

I am Thankful for living in a country where we can freely disagree.

I am Thankful for embracing change. 

I am Thankful for a mexican vacation to anticipate.

I am Thankful for winning bets and the promise of debts being collected.

I am Thankful for floating rainbows from the window prism. (remember PollyAna?)

I am thankful for Taxol, Taxatere, and Avastin.

I am Thankful for homemade tamales.

I am thankful that my puter has not crashed once this year and I haven't been spammed by a psychotic hater whackjob in over six months!
Good TImes.

(personally grateful for taxol, carboplatin and methotrexate today--not necessarily in one cocktail, mindyou)

Thankful for your Thursday Thirteen.

Then and now.

*hugs*

Mmmmmmmmm. Tamales. Love em. Cheers Kat!!

Linda said...

I would be thankful for both a Mexican vacation and homemade tamales if I had them but since I don't, I'll just have to find some other stuff to be thankful for. That' will be a good post for me to work on ...

Most excellent list...

I remember your alphabet list too!

I'm thankful for getting to spend Thanksgiving with my mom and sister for the first time in several years. And for learning well the lessons of anticipating downturns during good times and being prepared for them.

Jeff B said...

I'm with Matt-Man...wait, that doesn't sound right.

Like Mat-Man said, "Mmmmmmmm tamales" Haven't had homemade ones since I lived in So Cal.

The CEO said...

Well done

The Teamster said...

yeah....no more political commercials...

mountain rides are pretty nice....

you forgot yahoo.....

warm hugs are pretty nice...

this country would be a lot better off if everyone would just agree with me.....

change is good...sometimes scary...but good...

mexico is awesome...can't wait....

losing bets can be as thankful as winning bets....can't wait to pay up...

i've never had home made tomales...

I, like the view said...

November

No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member.
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds!
November!

Thomas Hood

(aspects of this poem only work if you're British!)

I'm liking November, if it brings thoughts of the good things we can focus on. . .

It's always important to think about what we are thankful for. With the world the way it is...
I'm thankful for your sharing...
Peace
