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.

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/23/17

For the month of November, I’m going to try to include gratitude in all my posts (and post every day.)

Today I’m thankful for the gauchos and chefs at Fogo do Chao who will be feeding Big Al and me our Thanksgiving Dinner. No cooking for me this year. I’m not upset about it because there’s no family around to cook for. (But I DID make cranberry salad to have when we get home.)

 

 

 

 

 

Today is Big Al’s Birthday

Big Al is 71 years old today! (How did I get old enough to be married to a 71-year-old man?)

It was a techy upgrade birthday for him. On Tuesday, he got new Bose speakers from #2 son. They are really first-rate as far as the sound goes.

Then today, this came from #1 son.

We wrestled it back down the hall, and he proceeded to unpack it. He moved his old monitor (15″ flat screen)¬†across the room and cleaned off his desk. Then we started looking at the cables that came with it.

And trying to decipher the instructions,

I sent pictures of everything to #2 son by text message and he reassured us about what plugged in¬†where. Then Big Al crawled under the desk and plugged it in and …

It brings a whole new dimension to his games (Zuma and QBees)!

I got him several DVDs, and he’ll probably get excited about them later, but right now he’s entranced with his new computer play-toys.

We’re planning on a trip to Fogo de Chao for his birthday dinner tonight. I think he’s pleased with his birthday!
