Five things that made me happy today – 11/9/22

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.

1. Cold and clear this morning when I got up – 34 deg. We had clouds off and on all day, and the temperature never improved on 44 deg.

2. I’m breathing a small sigh of relief this morning, realizing that the election wasn’t the s@#$ storm I was half expecting – no red wave. WHEW!

3. I went over to the Wellness Center to do some cardio exercise before lunch. On my way home I drove to Safeway and picked up the groceries I ordered this morning.

4. I had leftover chili from Saturday for my lunch, and Al had leftover lasagna from Sunday for his.

5. Looking forward to starting Season 5 of The Queen this evening. We finished the last episode of Season 4 on Sunday evening. How’s that for great timing?

How about you? What made you happy today?

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/9/22

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.

I’m so thankful for our little house that keeps me warm and dry. I’m also thankful for the maintenance people who keep everything in working order and for the grounds keepers who maintain the lawns and plantings. I LOVE Franke Tobey Jones.
