Friday Five: Thankfulness List


A quick Friday Five from Mary Beth at RevGals.


I am, of course, thankful for my family, church and home, but this day I am also thankful for.....


1. I think I wrote this last time we did a thankfulness Friday Five, but it's applicable again.....chewable antibiotics that my daughter will take without me having to chase her around the house first!


2. that my husband and I seem to be getting a handle on our run-away finances. A full-time salary helps!


3. legumes. There are endless dishes one can prepare using beans. (I also thank God for Beano!)


4. the state fair is almost over. The fairgrounds are about three blocks away and, let's just say, people aren't always on their best behavior.


5. my beautiful mums and pansies I just planted last weekend. They are so cheerful. (I'd post a pic, but I don't yet know how to use the digital camera we were just given.)


How about you?

I smiled when I read about chewable antibiotics--great invention, true. And I wish I could plant pansies right now. I like imagining yours.

I wonder if those chewables would have worked for my middle child, the one who projectiled all meds when he was little? Blech!

Beano! Love it!

Presbyterian Gal said...

LOL on Beano. And you're right. There's lots of good things to cook with beans.

I want chewable antibiotics for myself!

being from Minnesota, the state fair thing is well, a thing. Great play!

Mary Beth said...

We have mums! and I hope to get pansies soon. Yea!

off to make some mjeddrah, thanks for the reminder about lentils. Thankful for Beano myself!

Iris said...

Oh yeah, I've heard about the huge Minnesota State Fair!

I may have to ask the doc for some more chewable antibiotics for my son. Why do my kids only share when I don't want them to?

Mary Beth, I've never made mjeddrah. Is it weight loss friendly? If so, place the recipe on Chicken Fat, if you think of it!
