Share Your World #47

What are you grateful for in regard to:

  • Your home life? This home is my favorite one ever. It’s yellow and it’s cozy and it’s shaded with beautiful trees and it has a huge yard and inside there are happy things like books and quilts and stock pots. I’m especially fond of my porcelain bathtub, my picture window, and things that work as they should. I could write at least 2000 words about how much I love my house. Perhaps another day.
  • Your family? My husband, my children, my pets — all filling my home life with love and laughter, and music and play, and wondrous joy. Heart heart heart, gush, gush, gush. Sassy’s been getting private cello lessons with a symphony pro and she’s been playing Bach every day. 
  • Your blogging community? I really appreciate my regular readers and people like Linda and Cee and Norm who give me ways to connect with others. This blog helps keeps me sane.
  • Your city or immediate area in which you live? Well, there really is a thing called Hoosier Hospitality and I encounter it every single time I leave my house. People here are more polite and friendly than many places I’ve been.
  • The regional area in which you live? My fondness for the landscape and my fellow Midwesterners is obvious, isn’t it? Don’t make me go on about corn and trees and clover, cause I will. At length.
  • The country where you live? I appreciate my many freedoms. I particularly enjoy freedom of speech and not being burned at the stake. I shall continue to hope for all that America’s best people have to offer.
  • You? Believe it or not, I’ve only been ‘sick’ four times this year and even if I get sick two more times in the next 50 or so days, this will have been the healthiest year of my life. That is no small thing.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I was awfully glad my weekend started with oysters on date night and that I got two days in pajamas. This week I am supposed to say I am glad we’ll have a houseful of great people to share our gratitude, and I am, but I’m most happy the kids don’t have school. I’m really looking forward to those dry turkey sammiches and punkin pie, decorating the tree, the long weekend, including my birthday, four days of no schedules, and oh the peace.

    I vote for a Joey post about corn and clover and trees. I want to read your rambling about the landscape you love. But, don’t forget the cows. They are also important to the Midwest landscape.

    Have an awesome Thanksgiving week with the family and your pajamas and the pumpkin pie. I am sooooo hungry for pie. Lots of pie. I may be wearing the stretchy yoga pants…

      I don’t think we have as many cows around here as you do there, cause you know, Dairy State and all. I have lots of posts about corn and trees and clover, and will be happy to link you. I write at least one every year, cause so much gratitude to be home.
      I have purchased punkin pies, but I will bake my own apple pies. I wanted a pecan but no one else will eat it and then I would eat it all and that would be both good and bad. :/ I shall wear leggins on Thanksgiving, lots of room for lots of pie.

  15. Reading your post was so enjoyable! To live in a home where there is cello playing would be wonderful. I love the sound of that instrument. I lived in Indiana for a short while when I was very young during WW II, so I have no memories of it. Your home sounds lovely.

    The mid-west hospitality sounds a lot like Texas. Here in Texas you will find some really great people who will go out of their way to help you. Just don’t get in their way when they are behind the wheel. When they are driving, they become some of the most impatient people there are.
