The Gratitude Post

I'm writing a weekly post to express gratitude for everything I have been blessed with in my life. Will you join me in sharing just five things you are grateful for this week?

This week I'm grateful for:

My crock pot: Have I told you lately how I love this device? I am so, so, so grateful for it as it pumps out great (and not so great) meals every week for me.

The ability to walk: The past two days I took H & P on long walks to a playground with one in the stroller and the other on my back. I'm tired. I am also grateful for the closeness of this playground and the perfect weather to walk in.

Grandparents: I am forever grateful to each of the grandparents who watch H & P while I work because without them, I would have a lot more work to do and a lot more money to shell out. They are incredibly helpful and I am so thankful that H & P get to spend so much time with family.

The sun: I got to dry diapers in the sun this week! You know what this means to me!

Peanut butter: I go through so much peanut butter it isn't funny. Actually it is. So I'm glad it exists. Yum.


  1. I'm just getting into the crock pot. We got a really nice one for Christmas from my mom. I like the recipes that don't call for any extra browning or other pans at all. Those are my favorites! We should share recipe discoveries!
    Grandparents rock!! We only have grandmothers, but they're amazing. And having people who love your child so much to watch them is beyond a gift, isn't it?
    We got some surprise sun today and I do relate. You're so good to be doing cloth diapers. Props.

    1. Ahem. Even if the recipe calls for 'sauteeing' or 'browning,' I usually don't because I'm lazy. I suppose that makes me um...lazy...? Personally I think those recipes are ridiculous because if you're using the crock pot, the objective is to use as few dishes as possible. That just negates the idea.
