Thankful - November 8

After the pandemic and other world events understandably caused such disruption in supply chains, I am thankful when they work! I know a dishwasher is not a necessity or even common worldwide, still I am thankful that our new one arrived, was installed and is working.

Thinking about dishwashers makes me think about how happy my Mom was when they bought a dishwasher. It was the kind that had to be rolled over to the sink and hooked up to the faucet but it was a game changer. Miss my parents even though they lived long lives and have been gone a long time.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. The sun is shining it's still in the 50-60s during the day and I have a cup of hot coffee. I am able to drive myself and walk up to the voting booth.
    I am feeling like I can still make fun changes in my life.
    Take care.

  2. I still have a portable dishwasher. Love it and am thankful that I don't have to wash as many dishes anymore.

    God bless.

    1. As I recall from having one early in our marriage, they do a great job.

  3. Thankful indeed. As a kid we had an old wash tub and washing board in the basement . . . one my mother apparently used early in her marriage. By the time I came along we had a washer and dryer . . . and I still remember how much she appreciated those two machines. As for me, the last airbnb we rented had no dishwasher. Not too bad for ten days. But I wouldn't want to live without one.

    1. Interesting and makes me remember we had a wringer washer when I was a child plus clotheslines in the basement and outside. Had to sprinkle the dry clothes with water and then iron them too. Lots of effort to get chores done.

My DIL thought the moth that was in my front yard is a Hawk Moth. It is a White-lined Sphinx (or Hawk) moth. That is a new one for me but it...
