Thankful Thursday ~ September 4

The theme this week is Seasons. What a lovely theme. The season here of course is spring.

It is a big season when your son leaves home like Iris'. I visited my son last weekend, and feel I have made the adjustment properly now. It is such a big event. It has been 2 1/2 years. I was riding in the car over the ground where we left him all that time ago last weekend. The first time I was crying driving home with hubby and the kids on this particular roundabout.

Well I have been reading up on bronchitis, and I guess I had the malaise that goes with it. I get better each day I think. It is hard to do anything, so I do a small amount. I felt a lot less cranky after reading my friends new blog and things on Peggy's daily reads. So I had a nice day.


~ hubby got his hair cut which was hard to achieve, and it looks nice

~ I liked the version of carbonara hubby made though I was scared of it at first because of the green beans, it is lovely. Prosciutto Linguine

~ I was able to walk to school, I didn't have the car that day


~ I was able to pack for six people for a trip, I did it slowly

~ my middle daughter did well at a sports day at the regional centre, she got two ribbons, and got home in time to start our trip

~ absolutely lovely scenery

~ my last minute clothes dried on the line

~ middle daughter's new watch

~ I was worried about how I had organised the late check-in but it turned out OK I should have called to make doubly sure

~ second son was able to get his hair cut too!


~ eldest son drove me around in his and his girlfriend's new car that I hadn't seen before

~ I also was able to drive even though I was a little unwell, he told me where to turn

~ I got to go to an Asian food store and bought some things for the pantry and some Pokemon lollies that cheered up our son a lot

~ our son and his girlfriend cooked us tea

~ they took us to see some ducks and generously bought lots of bread for them, it was planned out very well and was a lovely place to sit


~ I got my menus made up

~ I got the fruit ordered


~ an email to middle son's teachers about his illness meant that they helped him which was nice


~ I got my car back, though apparently the fan may come off, so some investigating what the wreckers have needed

~ some costumes got organised

~ hubby bought some more food, just a tiny bit left to get now


~ I was able to get some washing done, a effort that both of us did

~ I got some bills paid

Hi Linda,
Sorry to hear you and your family have been feeling unwell. My hubby has brought home a lovely virus from work and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get it. He has been sick all week. My son is complaining of a sore throat tonight, I am hoping it is only allegy related.

Hope you are all feeling better real soon.

Take care,

Hi Linda,

I'm glad you feel better but I know it has been a while. These things take a long time and it always feel like forever before we feel better. Glad you're on the road to doing that though.

I received an award that I would like to pass on to you if you are willing. I enjoy visiting your blog, I think it is a lovely one and my visits here are a fun part of my day. The award is over at my place.

Have a good one, and continue to feel much, much better.

I' glad you are feeling better. And glad you've adjusted/adapted to your son leaving the nest. Our nest is empty now. But funny thing is, they start returning for visits and bring more with them! I have 5 grandchildren now.

Have a blessed weekend in your Spring. I'm getting ready for fall right now and just loving it.

I'm sorry to hear your family had been ill. My family is passing a bug/virus around too. I am praying I will not get it. Next week is an important seminar I must speak at and I don't need to be sick.
God bless you my dear....
