Thankful Thursday: July 28

I truly believe it is important to be thankful everyday. Without gratitude, there is no reason for it all. I also blog about my gratitude over at Learning From Duramax. How better learn about gratitude than to learn from the most compassionate creatures over created.

Today I am Thankful for Family








This is Duramax and his old friend Thunder


This is my Momma and my little sister.

What are you Thankful for?

  4. Hello Brandi,
    I went back and further checked again and 2 of the links were not working. I fixed them and thank you for letting me know. Here is the link to the page if you want to try again.

    Also, loved the pics. I use to have a boxer too, very comical dogs, great with kids and very protective.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk

Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.

Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
