Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for the men of the house being absent.  Yes, they were gone for a couple of days and the girl and I had the Farmette to ourselves.  What a glorious time!  Great food and conversation ensued.  And, for that, I am truly thankful.  

What are you thankful for today?  Be it large, or small, it is all important.  Link up and shout it out!

    1. Thank you, Gayle. The sticks you see will be used to hang the plant/leaves in a barn to dry.

  3. By all means, enjoy your girl time.
    I should probably know, but are these tobacco plants?

    1. Rick, those are tobacco plants that are on "sticks". They will be hung in barns to dry. After that process, they will be taken to market for profit.

  6. I'm thankful my husband only had to stay in the hospital for 2 days. The ER checked him for everything when he couldn't breathe on Monday, then finally found pneumonia. He's home now and happy to be here.

    1. Glad to hear he is home! Nothing like a hospital stay to make you miss your normal life!

  7. Looks like a tobacco harvest. That brings back memories of my youth! I used to help a friend of mine harvest her tobacco crop. That's how she paid for college.

    1. My husband paid for his first car with money from his tobacco harvest, in high school. We don't grow tobacco, we raise grass fed beef, but a handful of farms around us still raise it.

  8. It's nice to have some time to yourself! And yes, I recognize the tobacco plants from living so many years in the mountains of NC! I'm thankful for a chance to share my volunteer work this week! Hugs!

    i spend the day with my father at the nursing home on monday, wednesday, and fridays. tuesday and thursdays are typically spent at home doing necessary tasks and not talking to anyone all day and it's wonderful. ;) .. but today? today i had coffee with my fun friend linda then went thrifting just a little bit and came away with a few well chosen treasures. i'm thankful for friendship and an afternoon nap since my precious pooch woke me at zero-dark-thirty. and ice water cuz it's hotter than blazes here. and ever so much more for which to be thankful. ♥
