Thankful: What am I thankful for? I am thankful that my family is healthy. It seems so many around me are themselves or have family members going through illnesses and I am thankful that for the moment, the ones closest to me are healthy and safe.
On a lighter side, or maybe its darker, I am also thankful that True Blood is coming back in just a few weeks, because the werewolf Alcide was seriously drool worthy last year…GRRRRRRRRR…did I mention the werewolf.
Thoughtful: I am thoughtful about the weather and what we are going to it. I mean granted some of the extreme weather is to be expected every now and then but this tornado season was/is crazy and we are moving into what I feel is going to be a crazier hurricane season. So I think a lot about how we can take care of our planet.

Thirsty… Oh Girl I love me some MEAN TEA. For those of your not familiar with MEAN TEA it’s unsweet iced tea which yes, I know is sacrilege here in the South. But its how Love my iced tea and believe me I need me some MEAN tea.
Where did the term Mean Tea come from? A cute little waitress on the Outer Banks asked me once.
“Why you want it mean?”
“Excuse me?” I asked
“Well if it ain’t sweet, its mean.”
So from then on I order my tea Mean. I am on a campaign to get all unsweet tea drinkers to just call it Mean Tea. Its working here when I go through the drive thru at the local fast food joints in town they no longer even question me over it.
