Thankful Thursday - the first post

Because I just have to do things my way (and I wonder where ds#1's obstinacy comes from), I'm starting, per my "resolutions", my very first Thankful Thursday.

This Thursday, I am most thankful for everyone who visits my blog - whether you leave a comment or not. I have met so many wonderful people who have brightened up my life, or my entire family's life (yes, you, Carrie-Gigi!).

And to all my wonderful online and real-time friends, I toast you with my rum and eggnog! Hugs and kisses!(Really, I am off to drink my rum and eggnog du jour.)

Teresa R said...

Thanks for the happy wishes, everyone! You are all invited over for eggnog, with or without rum. ;)

Carrie, I took the photo several years ago. It's looking out of our basement window (towards the south-west) at our garden and shed. Thank you for the compliment!

happy new year!

Heidi said...

My husband is the eggnog lover in the family, but I'd come over just for the conversation = )

Teresa R said...

Navita, it was a nice surprise from my FIL's liquor cabinet when we helped him move him out of his house and into assisted living. He can't drink anymore for health reasons.

Heidi, conversation with you would be the best! We have a good bit in common. :)

Here's a toast right back at you, Teresa! Thanks for being such a treat to know! I get a goofy little grin everytime you pop up on my blog or in a forum!

xoxo Cheers! Heather

Teresa R said...

Heather, likewise! You are a true treasure and have enriched my life in many ways!

Love the new header photograph-gorgeous!
Now, my confession. I've never had egg-nog. It's not a big thing in the UK. What are we missing?

Happy New Year to you too, sweetie. You brighten up our lives too you know!

Teresa R said...

Diane, thanks for all the nice things you say to and about me! Snow does make everything look sharp and amazing, doesn't it?

Eggnog...hmm, how can I describe it? It's egg-y and very creamy. So if you like eggs and cream, you're in luck; if you don't like either, you'll hate it. LOL! Here's a sample recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Eggnog-I/Detail.aspx

Happy New Year to you too! I love the idea of Thankful Thursdays. There really is so much to be thankful for.

Hmm, I think I toasted you during the holidays!
