Thursday Thanks Tank #188

 I started this list yesterday and then didn't get a chance to finish it. I thought I'd finish it last night but instead I spend time talking to my husband. My belated Thursday Thanks Tank ~with a few additions from this morning~

Today I am thankful for:

A new coffee pot
leaf piles, perfect for kids to jump in.
pictures drawn by my kids
my son's friend
music, especially the sounds of my son and his friend practicing their band instruments together.
Southern Living Magazine
New recipes, this week they were brought to our house by Southern Living, Paula Deen, and my friend,  Melissa
An email from a long distance friend
Productivity, especially on projects around the house
Family pictures
Allergy Kids, my son isn't the only one in his class with food allergies this year. It has been great for him to be around other allergy kids. One has a nut allergy. One has multiple food allergies.  Not only has this experience made him feel 'not alone' it has also brought up some good allergy discussions at home.
Veteran's Day celebrations, especially the luncheon at middle school where my son is proudly taking his dad
Chocolate. always chocolate
Talking, about anything and everything with my husband.

Time spent being thankful is time well-spent.
