Car needs work, didn't get my date night with the hubby, throat is sore, corn and beans are am I going to get it all done?

1. Thankful I was able to get another week to work on a project for work. 
2. So blessed that my garden did well this summer. We'll have great food to eat over the next year. I love my canned beans, cornbread and buttered corn from the freezer. It's my favorite meal.
3. I love my parents. My mom and I enjoy doing a lot of the same things.
4. I got a really great deal at the grocery store today; 2 boxes of cereal, 2 boxes of nutrigrain bars, two boxes of fruit snacks, 2 packs of cookies and 2 boxes of rice crispie treats for $13.63 after giving my coupons. It gets even better, if I send my receipt and UPC's from each thing, I get a $10 rebate. So, I got all that stuff for $3.63.  Woot woot!
5. My sweet husband shelled out some of the beans I picked this morning while I was getting groceries.

4. Thankful the food in our garden has done well. It's going to keep me busy for the next week or so.

5. Remember the saying, "thank God for dirty dishes" then it goes on and says something like it means we've had food to eat and been with our family. I'll have to find that whole saying and post it sometime.
