Thankful Thursday: On Coffee, Friends, and Squash

It's Thursday again and of last week that now means it's time for Thankful Thursday.

I'm thankful for seeing an old friend.  My friend Ashlie got to stop by for the night to see me tonight!  I haven't seen her for about 3 years since she moved from Iowa to South Carolina.  I love seeing old friends and reconnecting with them.  Especially when we can pick up right where we left off.

I'm thankful for a weekend with my brothers.  Last weekend, I spend Saturday with Adam and his wife Sam.  We watched the Iowa - Minnesota game (and I am not thankful for the outcome), had some delicious lunch, and hung out and chatted.  This weekend, I am going to Champaign to visit my friend Laura and for the Theta Tau Central Regional Conference.  I'm sure I will get to reconnect with a lot of old friends there.

I'm thankful for squash.  This week I made some spicy butternut squash.  And I've been eating it plain and on salads.  It is so good.  Squash is one of my favorite foods of the fall.

I'm thankful for coffee.  Which has been keeping me warm and caffeinated all week.  I've been tired this week because I haven't been sleeping all that well.  I keep waking up in the middle of the night.  I've been brewing it at home and buying it at Starbucks.

I'm thankful for the Farmer.  We reached the 7 year mark this November.  Although I'm sad I haven't been able to see him much lately, I'm glad harvest will soon be over and he will have a little more free time.  I'm glad he's put up with me I've put up with him for the last 7 years.

This one is short but I am going to bed :)
