November 20th: What Are You Thankful For?

I guess that answers when is Thanksgiving ;) I am hoping for some Black Friday sales, cos yes that is a thing here too. Online stores gotta keep up with US ones.

I am thankful for the obvious things, that are not that everyone have in the end.

I am thankful for a roof over my head. I like our flat and little yard.
I am thankful for my SO who is patient when I am raging hormonal b*tch.
I am thankful for my beautiful daughter. She may not let me sleep, ever, but she is precious.
I am thankful for living in Finland. First we get to be home for 9 months when the baby is born, and then if we so chose we get to be home even longer. This with not that much money, but we do get some, and  with some do not buy books or other things rules, means I can be home until Fall. Then I really should go back so she can start daycare.
I am thankful for Luci, he is a handful too but I adore him.
I m thankful for food on my table and a nice quiet life.

I am also thankful for all of you! You make my day every time :D With comments and more. Thank you all!

I never knew Black Friday was outside the US. I'd love to visit Finland but am afraid it would be too cold for me there. I am especially thankful for family this year.

Melliane said...

ah yes so many things!

Mary Kirkland said...

That's awesome that you can be home so long with a new baby. We get 6 weeks off here and that's it.

Carole's Random Life in Books said...

It is great that you live in a country that makes it possible to stay home with your little one for an extended time. I think that they send moms back to work way too soon here. Enjoy those sales!

Blodeuedd said...

With all the internet shopping these days shops have to keep up, also Finns take any holiday for a reason to hold a sale. There is always a sale going on

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Blodeuedd said...

That is crazy to me. Where does the 6 week old kid go then?

Blodeuedd said...

I am so grateful for it. I could not imagine having gone back at 6 weeks with a colicky baby

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

So many things to be thankful for and you forgot to add that you have forests that are raked so that Finland doesn’t catch on fire :)

Karen said...

That's so amazing that you get to stay home with her like that.

And I love Luci too! I always look forward to his pics :-)

And "raging hormonal b*tch" lol

Haha, yeah when I lived in Canada, we would get Black Friday and then Boxing Day. Too bad it doesn't work the other way around, now that I'm in the US we only get the one day of sales :)

9 months, that is awesome. In Jamaica they go back to work after 3 months. We also have Black Friday sales here.

RO said...

Wow! Finland seems like the place to be, not only for giving you the opportunity to stay home for so long, but I imagine there are lots of cool little shops to hang out in. I'm thankful for many things in life, and of course I'm thankful to have met you through your phenomenal blog, and very appreciative of your support. Hugs...RO

Greg said...

Sophia Rose said...

Yes, those are wonderful things to be thankful for. I'm thankful for the everyday good stuff like you said- health, home, food, family and friends. I'm thankful also for a great on-line book community that includes a wonderful you. :)
Happy Black Friday Shopping. :)

I do love that Thanksgiving reminds us to be thankful for what we have. It is easy to forget that sometimes. Great picture.

Blodeuedd said...

LOL!'Well I can't really be thankful for that, I mean 70% of Finland is forest. We are 5 mil. So many hours per day goes to raking ;)

Blodeuedd said...

ANd I am so grateful for it :D

Haha, well I totes am

Blodeuedd said...

No Boxing day here, I never even remember when that is. And yes we do have the after xmas sales, which is no also before xmas sale. Gods, the sales are non stop

Blodeuedd said...

3 months is still better than what some get :)

Blodeuedd said...

I really do not know about cool little shops...not really no. Just the same old same old.

Awww, thank you so much! SO sweet

Blodeuedd said...

Yeah, the US, no thank you. I kind of do not even want to visit now with that Orange monster

Blodeuedd said...

I am hoping my fav online bookstore will have like 10% off and then I will order xmas books :) That is enough for me.

Yes the little things really are the big things

Blodeuedd said...

It really is a good holiday :)

Jen Twimom said...

Sounds wonderful! I am thankful for you, your blog posts and photos of your family and Luci!

The Bookworm said...

AWw many things to be thankful for. And home for 9 months after the baby, that is wonderful! I think they get like 12 weeks unpaid here in the U.S. which is not good at all.
I am thankful for my family and that I can hug them every day :)

Blodeuedd said...

And I am thankful all of you :D

Blodeuedd said...

If it was unpaid then sure one have to go back, but for 3 months I get almost the same salary and then for 6 I get like half?
