Thankful Thursday with Mister Linky!

I am so excited to officially start A Bit Squirrelly's Thankful Thursday gratitude carnival! This week instead of having a theme I chose random things that really brought me joy. Next week we can have a theme if you would like, or just leave it up to you to chose your own! Please leave a comment after linking to let me know if you would like a theme, to suggest a theme, or to leave Thankful Thursdays theme free!

I am so thankful and grateful:

  • for celebrating the SIXTH birthday of my miss Muirne!
  • for Fall. I love the leaves and colors.
  • for halloween candy, though my thighs aren't going to like it!
  • for all the movement in Caspian's company. Big changes are coming!
  • that we are all healthy, happy and loved.
  • that the laundry is done, the house is clean, and my family is home.

    **On a personal side note, on Tuesday I lost my cousin tragically and unexpectedly. This Thankful Thursday post was written before that, but I have left it as is, because it is so important to me, especially while my family is dealing with our loss, to focus on the wonderful, joyful, loving and positive things in life. My cousin was a being full of love, joy and light, and I know now he is enveloped in Pure Bliss. Thank you for sharing your posts of gratitude this week, I really need them.

Thankful Thursdays: Simple Pleasures

This week I wanted to focus on the simple, little things that I am grateful for. My list is just ordinary, everyday things that I may take for granted so I felt it important to show my gratitude.

  • My coffee-pot that reliably brews my cup of sanity for the day

  • The bath and body wash, lotion and spray that my best friend gave to me. It reminds me of her every time I use it!

  • The candles that I have in three rooms of my house. They all smell like laundry soap/white florals and it is the perfect scent to relax me. It also seems to be tolerated by many and doesn't seen to irritate allergies so it is ideal for company as well!

  • My favorite pen--my Sharpie fine point. No matter what I write it looks nice! Be it a bill or a thank you note!

  • My Swiffer duster. Seriously cuts down my dusting time by half.

  • My SUV. I love that we always have room for extra people. That it is reliable and under warranty, and that it has a DVD player for road trips!

So Nutty Readers, what are some of your simple pleasures?
