1. It was 48 deg when I got up this morning – the same temperature as when I went to bed last night. Now in Portland, the high temperature is 50 deg, and it’s mostly cloudy.

2. Right after my shower, I got the final few things put in my backpack, and went down to McDonalds to get a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit for me and two Breakfast Burritos for Al. so we could have breakfast before starting on our travels.

3. The FTJ driver picked us up at 8:30 to take us to the train station.

4. We arrived right on time in Portland and caught a cab to the hotel. Lovely room that I think I’ve stayed in before.

5. Right now (3:15 pm) we’ve decided we’re hungry. We’re setting off to find a Chinese restaurant that has been recommended.

How about you? What made you happy today?

30 Days of Thankfulness 11/23/2022

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 my points from Marriott that gave us the chance to visit Portland for Thanksgiving.

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/24/22

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 gauchos and chefs at Fogo do Chao who will be feeding Big Al and me our Thanksgiving Dinner today. No cooking for me this year. We’ll be joined by #2 son and #1 grandchild.
