Thirty Days of Thanksgiving: Day 15

Today, I am thankful for:

45.  my sewing machine, and a reason to use it!!
46.  the white chalk pencil I didn't know I had, but really, really needed tonight.
47.  my grandma.  Today's her birthday!  I'm so blessed to have her in my life and to have such a close relationship with her.  I know a lot of people don't get to have their grandparents very long, so I do not take this for granted!
48.  my grandma's corn chowder recipe that I've tweaked to make it vegan.  It's still just as good as I remember it.  When I was in high school and worked at a grocery store, she would make it on cold winter days, and it was so awesome to come home to.  Maybe that's why I made it for dinner tonight, because I was thinking about her all day for her birthday.  =)

I love how you talk about your grandmother. So sweet! Thanks for the comment on my blog as well. I am so behind on reading everyone's blogs right now. I am working on getting caught up. :)

I love the post about your grandmother and how you learn to make her soup a la vegan. Very cool! I also worked in a grocery store in high school!
