Five things that made me happy today – 7/26/21

Knitting teaches you that one small action does matter. That one small action, like knitting a stitch, isn’t unimportant. It’s vital. One small action repeated many times is a sweater. Or a shawl. Or a pair of socks to hold the feet of someone you love.


1. Warm, summer day, today. It was in the high 50s when I woke up. It was 81 this afternoon but there was a good breeze blowing and it was pleasant if you were in the shade.

2. I got all the laundry done before lunch, and finished up the folding and drying after the trip to the park (see below).

3. Pork chops, tomato slices, corn on the cob, and green beans – veggies compliments of the trip to the commissary, and my haul at the Farmer’s Market.

4. The Wellness Center sponsored long walk was to the rose garden, and daliah garden in Point Defiance Park. I also took the opportunity to walk around the lake and check in with the ducks and turtles. Only one turtle in sight, on the shore, but there were LOTS of Canada geese wandering around and terrorizing the ducks who live there.

5. Gazebo Group this afternoon. I really enjoy a time with those people.

BONUS: My (fully vaccinated) New York sister had a COVID scare over the weekend. She had a stuffy nose, and scratchy throat – probably from the West Coast smoke that blanketed upstate New York. She took a rapid test and it was negative, then she got a PCR and has been waiting for the results. The test came back negative today, and there was much rejoicing!

How about you? What made you happy today?
