This week I am THANKFUL for:
(The number go with my One Thousand Gifts Journal - in other words, ignore them)
417 / AC Repairman! We finally got someone to come out & fix our unit. & for now, he's got us going without the need to buy a whole new system. Hopefully what he did will last us for awhile.
418 / Avocado toast. With tomato. & feta. Enough said.
419 / A window at work by my desk. I love that I can see outside during the day. I spent many years without a window & appreciate that I can see what the day looks like.
420 / New doggie door flap installed. We have a doggie door to our enclosed back porch that the dogs go through 100,000 times a day. Harvey Dent takes credit for 99,000 of those times. That dog is always in & out. But he honestly was in & out so much that he wore our flap out & it was hanging by a thread & finally we had to take it down & then go on the hunt for a new one - which wasn't easy - or cheap. Dang. Not cheap at all. We had to order it online & it finally came in & we are back in business. Let's see how long this one lasts.
423 / Quiet Friday afternoon. I didn't get off work 2 hours early this Friday but it seems everyone else took out early & a quiet office on a Friday afternoon is nice... not AS nice as being off myself, but I'll take it.
424 / Familiar face nurse. When I went to go sit with my friend at the hospital, I look up & see who their nurse was. One of my dear friend's daughter! I didn't even know she worked in that hospital! I think God puts people in the right spot at the right time. So cool.
425 / Meeting Harrison. Like I said on Monday, I hate the circumstances that brought my friend from Colorado back to Indiana, but I was so happy to get to hold this baby & kiss his little face.
427 / Did my nails. I haven't had color on my nails in monthssss. Just haven't had time to deal, but took the time to do them over the weekend & now I feel like I have fancy hands right now. Forgot how happy it makes me to have good nails.
431 / Roses survived the frost. Sunday morning, they were all on the news telling how to save plants from the frost. (You apparently spray them down before the sun hits them with the frost on them? I never knew that) But we took my potted rose bush in our enclosed porch for the winter & had beautiful roses all year long & I was going to be so mad that I finally sit them back outside, because hello? It's Spring... only to have them frost over & die. But they made it & I have 2 new blooms right now. Whew.
|Totally me checking on our roses|
433 / Filing done at work. I have had a pile of papers that have needed filing since the beginning of the year that I just kept putting off & putting off & putting off. I finally took the time on Monday to take care of it. Life looks better now at my desk where the top of my filing cabinet is cleared off.
434 / Need bigger weights! I can already feel a difference in just 2 weeks of my Hammer & Chisel program where I am wanting to up my weights. This is exciting for me. A wimpy girl.
435 / Warm tomato soup on a cold night. It's like we're back in mid-winter & that means warm soup hits just the spot. Comfort food at its finest.
436 / Fit in a smaller size!!! I'm the person that can loose a lot of weight, but still always seems to wear the same size. How is this possible? Granted, they are looser & I'm lazy about trying on clothes so I just stay in baggy clothes, but I got a pair of shorts online & took the jump of ordering a size smaller then I normally do. They came in & I was a nervous wreck but put them on & they fit perfectly!!!! I did a happy dance. Totally.
437 / Backrest Pillows. My vertigo is still kicking me in the butt - or I should say in the head - lately. I'm finding that laying flat or laying down aggravates it. Apparently my ears are really wonked out right now. So I found an old upright pillow - you know the kind - the ones that every college dorm or teenagers room has. It's been keeping me where I can sleep at an angle to help with the dizziness over night. Waking up with the room spinning has NOT been a fun time lately so this pillow is my friend right now.
438 / Heater! To make this post go full circle of life, this goes back to the first Thankful thing with the repairman coming out. We thought he was repairing our AC - but with this stupid weather, we've had to turn our heater on... & it works! Thank goodness. I've been freezing for days so it was so nice to go to bed with regular jammies on & not 3 layers of jammies.
What blessings have you had in your life this week?
