Ten Things of Thankful – September 4 2020

Happy Friday and TTOT time!! Let’s do this!

  1. Thankful for outings and still the ability to social distance. We went to Shangri-La Little Stone Village here in NC. I found out about it from this article by Joel Haas on Walter. Here are some pics from our day hop.

2. My God Children finalized the sale of their townhouse, moved to a temporary space – which is super nice – and will be moving into their fresh built house in 2021. Yay!

3. I wrote an article for Love of Food and it was published this week. Here is the link: Make Salad with International Challenges

4. Daughter bought her first new sewing machine today. She had a machine before, but this is her brand spanking new one and it was so cool to sit while she learned from Lynn at the sewing machine store. I am picky about sewing machines and asked pertinent questions, but mainly daughter asked questions. In fact, I got up and walked around so they could get their lesson underway. Next project is to sew the masks which are ready to sew.

5. As a now online editor for a publication, I had an online meeting this week and it was so stimulating. A lot of new ideas are formulating.

6. My poem, which I worked so hard on and received awesome critique from the Living Poetry critique group, was published in Fine Lines for their Autumn 2020 publication.

7. Poet’s Connection is having a poetry reading on September 26. I am happy to see this get off the ground. Here is the link if you want to attend or know more: Meetup Link

8. I signed up for a podcast with Anchor and will start doing poetry podcasts soon. I need to find my quiet space, so that’s a goal. At least the podcast is free. I listen to podcasts on Spotify at night, when I can’t sleep. Maybe my own will help others sleep to the sound of poetry.

9. New Horizons of the good kind. We all get them and I am grateful for ours.

10. You! What’s your thankful? How about a share?

  1. That little stone village looks so interesting! Whenever I see things like that, I think how cool that would be to have in my backyard, but then I think how much work that would be to construct and I am content to just admire the work of others! πŸ™‚

  2. I love the little stone village! I am glad you are having such success with your poetry, and I suspect the podcast will be great as well. Having just bought a new sewing machine a few months ago, I have to admit how delighted I was to discover that they no longer require the use of a foot pedal to sew! Obviously, it’s been a while since I did any sewing. πŸ™‚ Have a great week ahead!

    1. How cool that you are sewing! I didn’t know you could sew without a foot or knee pedal. What do you use? My first machine was a knee pedal, after that, it was foot. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement about the podcast and poetry. I just need to have some quiet time to make it happen. I suspect I will accomplish that this week.

      1. I bought an inexpensive Brothers model. The push of a button feeds the fabric forward, another does a backstitch, and a third raises the needle. Awesome!! Quiet time is not always easy to arrange, but such a blessing to do things with no interruptions!

  3. busy, busy, busy!
    and, very cool
    congrats on the various work published and the continued expansion of ‘venues’ for your work.

    I’m with the others about how neat the stone village is. (That said, growing up in Y Chromia, were I there, surely the first thing I would do is walk slowing among the buildings with arms out doing my best Godzilla voice.)
    Have a good week.
