I might be the most thankful right now in my life than ever before. It's been a long horrible, hiney-cringing (to borrow from an applicable Pioneer Woman saying), unimaginable and glorious year. More about my excruciating spiritual growth some other day.

Today I'm thankful that I have a husband who would send me to Aruba with friends knowing that I really needed to remove about 150 layers of horrible, hiney-cringing, unimaginable sludge, in simple words: GET AWAY.

I was even more thankful when I returned home, after missing my newly 8 year old's birthday as I sunned myself near the equator, and found that husband had even stepped in and made a special birthday cake for the kid.

Yes, that is my Salad Spinner on top.

It doesn't get much better than that...and I mean that, well, both ways.

I like the new picture you posted. In fact, when I first saw it last week I said to myself, "Self, I'll be she changes her profile photo with that one pretty soon." I was almost right.

I am so very thankful that you are my friend Jennie. Stan is quite creative and clever. Steve once used an over sized plastic fly swatter to strain noodles...really.

Thank you Rosemary, me too.
That's really gross about the fly swatter! Really. My roomie and I dropped a whole pot of macaroni into the dorm sink, scooped them up and ate them anyway. I don't know which is worse, dead fly parts or ... Lord knows what. :-/
