A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings

My dear blogging friend, Judy, over at A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings, hosts this meme every Wednesday. Simply list five things (or a prayer or any thoughts) for which you are truly thankful this week. Voicing my thanks helps put my life in perspective & realize that, no matter how bad things might be, there is still MUCH good surrounding me.
1) I'm thankful for an incredible week of family vacation last week...we went to Hocking Hills for some hiking & shopping, got some home repairs done, spent an afternoon at the Fall Fun Fest at a local nursery, & so much more.

2) I'm thankful for my dear hubby, Matthew, who took a week off work to spend time w/ us.

3) I'm thankful for the many apples my parents have given us from their trees. I've made apple bread, applesauce, baked apple skins...YUMMY!

4) I'm thankful for a nice, clean basement, yes, we actually have a floor down there!

 
5) I'm thankful for thrift stores. With six of us in our family, clothes & other items can quickly add up. I've found some great thrift stores near us & have saved so much money!
