Thankful... Day 25

Today I want to say that I am thankful for my scanner, printer and laminator.

This is my scanner. I use it almost daily. Mostly, I use it for school, but I have used it to scan old photos that were taken before I had a digital camera. If I did not have my scanner I would be running to a copy place weekly. I am so thankful for it. I also would not be able to do Blast From The Past because I would not have all my photos scanned into my computer and ready to publish.

Next I am thankful for my printer
It is my most used piece of homeschool equipment, not counting books.
I print things for the boys weekly, and some times daily. I make my own pages for recording what we do daily for school and print them. I print notebooking and lapbooking pages. I print stuff for myself, like the complete book list for the Grace Chapel Inn series so I know what books to order next. My hubby prints stuff for his unemployment, I print stuff for my daughters.

I like that it is a laser printer. That way, if I am just printing black, the color does not get used up also, like in an inkjet printer. The ink costs more but it lasts a really long time. I really love my printer.

I also love my laminator. I mostly got it and use it for our workboxes but I also use it for other things. 
 For instance, I laminated my yearly goals for 2011 last Jan. and keep it posted so I can review them and accomplish more this year. I also laminated 2 copies of our grading scale for school so I would have one downstairs and one upstairs.

AND, totally unrelated....
I am also thankful for leftovers.
We don't have to cook anything today.
I will enjoy the food more today than last night. We did not get our Thanksgiving meal done until 6 pm. By then I was so tired that I didn't even eat much, I even skipped having any pie.
Today we will put up our Christmas decorations and eat leftovers and relax.
We do not go out and shop on Black Friday.
We do most of our shopping online.

So, that is what I am thankful for on this day after Thanksgiving.
How about you?
Only 5 days left, not counting today, for the thankful challenges...
though we can and should be thankful all year long.

It's funny. My thankful post for today includes that we don't have any leftovers. I am glad you do. :)

Great things to be thankful for, Debbie--electronic equipment you use for school, no need to cook today and no hectic shopping adventures! Have a peaceful day! :)
