3 for 3 challenge!!!!

penelopes_web tagged me to take the challenge of listing 3 things to be thankful for, for 3 days.
I think I'll keep this simple :)

1_I'm thankful for the little bamboo tongs that keep us from burning our fingers when we remove toast from the toaster oven.

3_I'm thankful for the little red hobnail tea pot that Lauren and I have used countless times to make soothing cups of Earl Grey tea!

Things to be thankful for
I just read all three days, backwards, and love all nine of your choices. The tost tongs especially charmed me. I've never seen toast tongs before. Sometimes the simplest things are the most appreciated. A friend of mine just told me about asking his grandmother what of the many improvements and inventions she'd seen in her 92 years she thought was the best. He was asking this question back in the 60's so his grandmother was probably born in the 1860's. She said, "Window screens!" When you think about it - no more flying biting things, a lot less malaria and other insect-borne disease. Yeah, I wouldn't want to give up window screens. FanSee

Re: Things to be thankful for
I'm glad you loved all nine. This was very fun to do. Notice though, from your perspective, back to forward, things go from more complicated to less. I like your friend's grandma's story. I was at my mom-in-law's Ohio house over the last couple of weeks and she still doesn't have screens. Drove me crazy because we never opened the windows while here in California they're open as much as is possible :)
