Even when you're not feeling good.... Thankful Thursday #102

This week I am Thankful For:
{The numbers go with my One-Thousand Gifts Journal... just ignore them}

1065 / Got Zoe trimmed up.  This little girl. She's a mess. A hot mess in attitude & a mess on the outside with her hair.  We cant get her groomed anywhere anymore because she wont stay still. She "Alligators" & twists & throws herself down where groomers can't do anything with her.  It's been over 2 years now since we've had her professionally groomed.  So its up to us to keep her clipped back.  I think Ricky does a fairly good job at her body - I do her face.  It's always a struggle though. She is the Beyoncรฉ of dogs.  Wants things her way.

1066 / Hairspray Live!  I love the annual tradition of live musicals on TV during the holidays. I really do look forward to them every year now.

1068 / Going to bed early when feeling bad.  It's the little things.

1070 / Hot tea from local coffee shop. They make some great black tea with local honey in it. It was a lifesaver on my sore throat.

Attacking the sore throat: Day 2. Hot tea & honey. ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ #notgoingdownwithoutafight  #naturalmedicine #tea #starlightcoffee:

1073 / Nasal spray for bed time. I can't handle not being able to breath when I go to bed.  With that sinus infection, it was horrible trying to sleep.  I can handle it during the day, but not when you want &need rest. Nasal spray was my best friend this past week.

1074 / Sweet gift from one of my MSM girls. I wasn't expecting anything from anyone & this precious girl bought me the cutest coffee mug with some Starbucks hot chocolates in it.  She knows me already.

1076 / Etsy store still rockin! ... THANK YOU to anyone reading that has bought something for me. I still can't believe all the pieces I sold this year. I made the store knowing I'd be happy to sell one piece.  I'm on a mission now to make some of those messy bun hats.  I've had so many people contact me about them.  Gotta make the customer happy!

Messy Bun Hats are all the rage right now... So starting one tonight. ๐Ÿ‘ #rebeccajoknits #knitstagram #messybunhat:

1077 / Ricky busted our front porch thief.  (Story was posted yesterday if you missed it)

1078 / Rooting on MSM girls.  I got a text from one of my MSM Girls reminding me their choir performance was Monday night. I thought for sure it was Thursday... so glad she text me to remind me.  I had to go once she reached out to me.  & afterwards, she sent me the sweetest text thanking me for coming - it made me cry.  Let me know I'm exactly where I need to be in my church.

You @msm_indiana girls impress me so much with your talents. Great job @josie0k @christina.smith @ella_lavigne3 tonight. Voices like Christmas angels!! (Missed you @k_love965 feel better) love you girls!! #msmgirlsrock #msmhappyaccidents ๐Ÿ˜‰  #choir #hhms #christmasprogram:

1080 / Unexpected food surprises.  The Blue Apron recipe called for the dinner to be 'burger' type patties. I couldn't get it to work - it was like there wasn't enough bread crumbs or egg to hold it together... but I ended up just making it like a sloppy joe style - THIS WAS DELICIOUS! What a fun food surprise.


So what are you Thankful this week?
Tell me something good!

  1. That's great news on the etsy store, congrats! I had never heard of the messy bun hats before but they look cute :) And that hot tea from the local coffee store definitely sounds like a life saver.

  2. I've been seeing the messy bun hats around. Let me know how they turn out. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Congrats on your Etsy store success! I need one of those messy bun hats in my life! Your MSM girls sounds so sweet. I hope you are feeling better! :)

  4. messy bun hat! i have a pattern for that. will send.

  5. I'm so excited for you and your Etsy store!! Congratulations!! What a blessing you are to those MSM girls! I know they bless you too, but you make such a great mentor for them! Sure hope you are feeling better!!

  6. Great job with your Etsy store and what a thoughtful gift from one of your girls.

  7. Hope you're all on the mend over there.

    Really exciting about your etsy shop. I'm happy for you!

  8. I've seen that messy bun hat, it's so super cute! Now if only I could get my messy bun to look that cute!

  9. Sleeping with a stuffed up nose is the worst! Have you every tried "nasal irrigation"? The concept is weird, but I swear it helps SO much!

  10. Have you ever had a London Fog/tea latte? Those are my favorites when I'm feeling under the weather. (They have dairy in them, but I'm sure you could substitute it with a non-dairy steamed milk!)
    Zoe sounds like Ly. Her nails resemble a dinosaur. It makes me feel like a terrible dog mom, but I don't like being nipped. Ha. She freakin' HATES having her nails clipped. I might muzzle her and make K hold her down one of these days. She'd LOVE that *eyeroll* She also needs a bath- which she's good about... so that one is on me. Oops. (I don't know that she'd actually bite when having her nails clipped, but I don't know that I want to chance it... ha.)

  11. My sinus infection symptoms started about 3 weeks ago and it's still not 100% gone. Putting a hot wet cloth on your face is nice. And drinking lots of hot tea. I've been drinking chamomile or herbal teas because I'm not supposed to have caffeine with my medicine. Also, Google "sinus pressure points", there are some spots on your face that you can press for a couple of minutes. It helps a little.

  12. Great work with your Etsy shop!! I love seeing when small businesses are doing well. Hairspray is still sitting on my DVR - I can't wait to watch it!

  13. I've never seen those messy bun hats but they look really fun! Love that your etsy shop is really taking off - that is so awesome!! Hopefully you're feeling a bit better. It's really hard for me to sleep when I can't breath either. I'm such a whack-a-doo, I convince myself I'll stop breathing. Yes, I am a drama queen!

  14. I am still blown away by the UPS driver incident. I told my husband about it and how we need to be cautious. Ugh. But I am thankful for tea as well. Love days where I have tea. Have a great Thursday!

  15. Hope you feel better soon, Friend! Especially before the last weekend before Christmas! Yikes! Guess what exciting new I received today! I need a root canal! Yep! Merry Christmas and Happiest of Birthdays to me!

  16. Yay for Etsy! That recipe sounds interesting. Hope you feel better!

  17. next to AC, nose spray is one of the best inventions EVER!! Love being able to BREATHE! Ahhh! Hope you feel better. Loved Hairspray Live!

  18. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is just give up and go to bed early, but it works!
    Hope you feel better soon :)

  19. Oooh that "burger" sounds great.. actually... yum! I looove to eat veggie, even though I am not a full vegetarian. :) SO GLAD ABOUT YOUR ETSY STORE! :) :) Being sick is no fun, but it's good when we have nice things like medicines and honey, etc. etc. to soothe us! I've been relying heavily on the humidifier and the heating pad! haha XO - Alexandra

  20. sometimes those recipe mishaps are the best! It looks very yummy!!

  21. I haven't been able to use it since I got pregnant but Sinex makes some nose spray and it is the all time best stuff when you are stopped and can't breath! It can be addicting so you aren't supposed to use it often but when your sick and just want some sleep, it does the trick!
