Five things that made me happy today – 11/21/22

Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.

1. It was in the upper-30s and partly cloudy when I got up this morning. It’s been partly too mostly cloudy all day with a high this afternoon of 50 deg.

2. I drove down to the medical lab right after breakfast, only to find out that the doctor hadn’t put the order in for my blood work yet. I guess I’ll just have to wait and do it next week, but it’s a non-starter for the rest of this week.

3. I fixed Barilla penne, shrimp, and asparagus for lunch today. It’s easy and tasty for days like today when I’ve got lots to do.

4. The laundry is washed dried, separated, delivered, folded, and hung up.

5. Gazebo Group is meeting this evening. I don’t know how many will be there, but we’ll enjoy each other’s company.

How about you? What made you happy today?

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/21/22

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 thankful for a wonderful sunset we can see, now that the leaves have all blown off the trees. I know it’s pretty cloudy this morning and the AQI is pretty high with “fine particles”, but that usually leads to wonderful sunsets.
