Five things that made me happy today – 10/19/22

You can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!

1. It was 47 degs and smoky when I got up this morning. AQI is back up to 114 (Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups). The temperature improved to 67 this afternoon, but the AQI was 176 (Unhealthy!!!) Rain is coming on Friday if we can just make it until then.

2. I went over to the Wellness Center early (at least early for me – about 10:30), because I wanted to be finished with it in time to cook.

3. We had Bill’s Gumbo for dinner. He made it when we brought Al home from the hospital the first time. It’s not hard to make but there’s a lot of chopping of “the Holy Trinity of Cajun cooking” (onion, green pepper, and celery). When he makes it, he buys a little roast chicken from the grocery store, but I opted to just boil some of the chicken I had in the freezer.

4. There’s enough Gumbo left over for several meals. I’m saving one portion for lunch/dinner on Saturday when I’ll be busy watching the Oregon/UCLA football game. There are a couple of additional portions in the freezer that all I’ll have to do is cook a little rice.

5. The trees STILL haven’t changed color, but I think the rain and colder weather should do the trick later this week.

How about you? What made you happy today?
