Happy Thursday! Time to get thankful!
Today’s post is short, sweet, and to the point — a 12 line post for the prompt on Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.
Beautiful weather, perfect for extra time outdoors,
allowing us to enjoy the beautiful foliage,
and adding up to 2 tired children who fall asleep easily at the end of the day.
A bulldozer, knocking down as many Autumn Olive plants as it can,
not only allowing us to better use our land,
but also allowing me to breathe easier when spring allergies hit…
and giving my construction vehicle-loving son so much joy.
A determined husband, measuring, sawing, and hanging doors on our barn,
making it much more useful than it had been when we first bought the property,
and making it safer for our kids when they play outside.
For all of these things this week, and so much more,
Now for my favorite part; I’m turning it over to you.
What are you thankful for this week?

I am thankful to wake up to snow this morning. Yes, snow in October! We had no snow last winter, no rain this summer. We needed the snow in the worst way, and here’s hoping for a long, snow-filled winter. Welcome snow!
We had almost no snow last winter, too, and a very dry summer.
Enjoy your snow!
I’m thankful for the season…Autumn is my favorite. Loving the crisp air and festivals that pop up this time of year.
Have a beautiful day!
Yes, we made it to a festival this time around — so fun!
New follower 🙂 So many things to be thankful for!
Thank you so much for stopping in! Off to check your post out!
12 lines of thanks—what an excellent idea! I found it hard to decide what I wanted my 12 lines to be about! I chose humor.
Can’t wait to check yours out — I need a laugh today!
I’m thankful that my young adult college student was able to help his younger brother with his physics over Skype. The helpful sibling who hasn’t forgotten family at home is one thing to be thankful for, and the existence of Skype itself is another.
You know, I got a camera last year so we could Skype with my sister’s family and haven’t done that yet! I think we are missing out!
Yes, an older sibling willing to help over Skype is definitely a blessing!
Maybe Skype is just a frill in your situation and you have other methods of communication that are working fine for you with that family. When it becomes necessary, when the communication seemingly can’t happen otherwise or you are pining to see your child’s face when they live far away, then you will naturally use it.

What a great post!!! So glad I decided to visit your blog through SITS! Funny, I just wrote a post on counting our blessings. We (and mama kat) think alike!! 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping in SITSer! Off to read your post!
Sounds like a busy week! I know my boys would love something like that in our yard. I bet getting rid of the plants will be so helpful next year! I love the changing seasons! Dropping by from Mama Kat’s
Oh, boys and construction vehicles go hand in hand! They loved climbing on it during lunch time!
Yes, I imagine it takes them longer to change down there! 🙂
Wonderful list…and what a CUTIE photo!!! 🙂 So precious.
Thanks for linking up <3

I’m thankful for colorful autumn days, for the beauty of the first snowfall, for my laptop and all my wonderful internet friends.
You list is much better, though!
The first snowfall is always a magical time… I hope we have some for Christmas this year!
