Ten Thanks on a Thursday

As we still are not celebrating Thanksgiving in Norway, I’m yet again missing out on the delicious food typically eaten on this day, but there is no better day to saying thanks than the present.

I am thankful for
1. the joy of cutting paper
2. that we are all still alive and kicking, one of us more than the others.
3. comfortable shoes
4. that my creative muse doesn’t give up but keeps on nagging me while I’m working.
5. antibiotics no matter how much my body disapproves of them.
6. that I don’t really mind being cocooned inside my house not talking to anyone outside my closest family for quite a while.
7. our almost water- and windproof house and that we’re not going to demolish it until next year.
8. reruns of favourite TV shows to keep me entertained in the evenings.
9. reading glasses.
10. patience.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Nina Lise. That’s a wonderful list to be thankful for!

  2. That's a great list! Time for me to get busy cooking...

  3. You're going to demolish your house next year?? Why? That's so drastic!

  4. Thanks for sharing your list! "Happy Thanksgiving" to you!

  5. Loved your items you are thankful for today. I'm thankful that I don't have the desire to shop on Black Friday. Although my friend and I are heading to a craft fair where there are lots of wonderful things to look at and buy.

  6. It was all good until the house-demolishing bit. Wow, that's huge news!
