Five things that made me happy today – 11/7/22

We don’t know what life will bring, so it is what we bring to life that matters.

I’m trying not to obsess about the election tomorrow. If you haven’t done it yet – be sure to VOTE!

1. 38 deg when I got up, but cloudy with no wind. We had showers and drizzle all day, with a high of 44 deg.

2. I went to the Wellness Center shortly after breakfast, and used the NuStep before meeting with my personal trainer. He worked me pretty hard.

3. Dinner was ham steak and barbecued beans. Easy to warm up when I need something to fix for dinner with only about an hour to spare.

4. The laundry is all washed, dried, sorted, folded, and hung up. My work here is done.

5. Gazebo Group on Zoom today. I’m glad to be able to take my shoes off and not worry about going out in the cold and wet.

How about you? What made you happy today.

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/7/22

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 for the wildlife that inhabit my little corner of the world. Mama and baby deer are helping clean up after the high winds brought limbs and leaves down. They are a constant joy to me (except when they eat all the blooms off of the new flowers I just bought.)
