Thursday Thirteen #1: thankful

Thirteen Things to be Thankful for Today
  1. This heat wave will pass (soon I hope).
  2. Someone has accepted my mum’s apartment with the wooden floor, so we don’t have to remove it.
  3. I’ve bought a lovely new plant today (and got the pot for just € 1).
  4. My sister told me she’s sorry for something she said last week and of course I forgave her (I already had). Luv ya, sis!
  5. The super market had enough popsicles in stock, so they weren’t sold out at 5 pm.
  6. A dear friend is feeling much better than (the day before) yesterday.
  7. My ventilators don’t let me down, even though they are on 24 hours a day.
  8. I had guests today and we had a good time.
  9. I finally had the energy to tidy up the mess upstairs enough to have some more space.
  10. I found the missing toilet seat assembly material again.
  11. No obligations tonight, so Ron could go to bed early to get a well-deserved rest.
  12. Another of my sent PostCrossing postcards arrived at its destination today.
  13. I have taken the time to count my blessings today.

  20. Heatwaves are not good things!!! Hope you stay cool!! Great 13!!

    Happy Thursday!

  21. the heat wave left us, but it's still quite hot in my opinion. Of course, at this point, anything above 90 around here is hot.

    I don't have AC. that's the deciding factor!

  22. I'm hoping the heat will pass soon too. It's tough when you're covered in fur, and it's 100 degrees outside!

    You can visit my list at The Zeus Excuse. Great list, and I love the kitty in your profile pic!

  23. It sounds like a pretty decent day :-)

    Thanks for visiting!

  24. Sounds like you have a lot of wonderful blessings in your life! I hope that heat wave passes soon.

  25. being thankful is always nice, and making up too :)
    happy thrusday to you :)

  26. a great list of blessings big and small

    here's hoping you're keeping cool

  27. Great list.
    Someone suggested Postcrossing to me the other day, but I didn't know anyone who did it. Is it good ?? Is it similar to the Postcard Exchange I have been running ?
    Hope you are well.
    Take care, Meow

  28. thx for dropping by - interesting list, but great to hear that you have positive guys in your life. I feel very blessed by those in mine.

  29. That's a good list! I'm here via Sparky Duck :P
