It's another cold morning. Right up at the top of my thankful list is my lovely, warm house. This is my favorite place that I've lived, probably since I left my mom's house. I love the location (park Right Next To My House!), I love the landlord, and it's my favorite layout of all my apartments. The upstairs neighbors have their amounts of crazy, but are, on the whole, pretty nice people. Oh, there are always things that I can complain about, but that's not what this post is about. So they get filed in the 'what to watch for when I go house hunting again' folder.

I'm thankful that Jeff had a safe commute yesterday. He drove in, hoping that he would be able to find safe routes and not be at the mercy of stuck buses. His commute was much faster and easier. Luckily, we had enough sun to help get the main roads fairly clear (for which I'm also grateful).

I'm thankful for my goofy cat. We miss our Mattie cat still, but Lilly is all kinds of fun (and funny). We're crazy about her!

While it seems an odd thing to be thankful for, I'm thankful for my toaster oven. I got it at our last house where we were living in a friend's basement. I didn't always want to climb the stairs to use the shared kitchen, so my mom gave me a toaster oven. More of a mini countertop oven, really. I haven't stopped using it just because I'm in a place with my own easily accessible kitchen. It's perfect for baking small batches (4 muffins, breakfast for just me), it takes very little time to pre-heat, I can use both the toaster oven and the big oven when I'm in a hurry or am trying to get 2 things done, and it's great for cooking small amounts in the summer when I don't want to heat up the kitchen too much. It makes my life easier!
