What are you grateful for today?

    Tickets to the symphony where I listened to the beautiful music of J S Bach.

    Perfect gardening weather all weekend.

    A strong and healthy body that enables me to garden.

    My flower beds which are coming back to life as they do every spring.

    Girlfriends - especially the two I had tea with this weekend.

  3. Sooooo thankful for:

  4. Thankful for:
    - having friends who help me with all that technical writing I have to do
    - that Annie and I are still together

    -wonderful place I work at. Doesn't pay well, but provides a place of safety and comfort for Annie and me

  5. Yesterday was one of those Mondays that does not bear repeating. I went to bed at 8:30 last night!

    I am grateful for a rainless weekend; so we could finish cleaning and waxing our boat.

    I am so sore yesterday and today; but I am grateful that I am able to use all of those muscles.

    I am grateful for a good job; even though it drives me absolutely crazy sometimes.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
