Five things that made me happy today – 11/6/22

We have no idea what tomorrow will bring, but today is overflowing with potential.

1. It was 41 degs when I got up this morning. I was wakened in the wee hours with rain beating on the windows and skylight. The high this afternoon was 46, with rain returning about 5:00 pm.

2. Church this morning under a lap robe in my chair in the living room. With the torrential rain I was pleased to stay home. We had communion and I had my splash of red wine with a lemon Oreo cookie.

3. We went to Pomodoro’s for lunch. I had seafood linguini with a lemon butter sauce, and Al had his perineal favorite – Lasagna. I think he likes it because it’s big enough for him to bring half of it home.

4. The afternoon was spent under my cover, reading my current Jack Reacher novel. It moves fast.

5. The later afternoon was spent (again under my cover) watching my current Shetland episode.

How about you? What made you happy today.

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/6/22

For the month of November, I’m going to continue with my habit of posting things I am thankful for. Thankfulness is different from happiness, and I don’t want to conflate the two.

Today I’m thankful that I’m a Pluviophile (rain lover). We have entered the season of successive Pacific storms that roll in with heavy rain, drizzle, wind, and occasional sun breaks. Wash, rinse, and repeat.
