Good Morning and Happy Friday and TTOT day! Well, it doesn’t have to be today, but to get the party started I already inserted the above blue bar in case you want to get a running start to join in! Let’s get to it!

  1. Notice the picture of the cabin in the woods? Well, that’s not mine. And as much as I love the pictures of the pretty snow, I am not seeing any and I am grateful, because I like to see the roads stay clear. However, if I were in that cabin, looking out at the snow, having ability to write, and having hot foods and drinks to sip, I would not be ungrateful. So, there’s that.
  2. I received approval for my injection so expect that to happen on Thursday. So, that is the injection for my knee and I am very grateful.
  3. Many of you know that I am putting together an anthology of poetry. I am happy to report that the edits are done, just waiting on a handful of people to confirm all looks okay. I am grateful that people have been quick to get back to me.
  4. I learned a much needed new skill and I am grateful for YouTube videos. I suppose I should give credit to the person who created the video, as well. Otherwise, I would be continuing to have much confusion.
  5. Coupons from the drug store for being a loyal customer helped pay for a good portion of my big purchase yesterday.
  6. Grocery pick up options when it’s just too hard to manage navigating the store. And friendly, helpful people who bring them to the car.
  7. Poetry Critique group from Living Poetry helps me to improve my work and I am so grateful for such a nice group of people.
  8. My helper/daughter when grocery shop. She insists on managing the trunk placement and helps carry and put things away. She used to bag groceries for her job as is very good at this skill.
  9. Neighbors who are quiet.
  10. YOU! So, tell us what’s up with you!

  1. What would we do these days without all those YouTube videos to help us learn how to conquer some of the challenges we face as well as just gaining new knowledge about just about anything!
    So glad you will hopefully have some relief from your pain.
    I can almost hear the sounds related to dialing on one of those phones. 🙂

  2. I, for one, like the image of the phone at the bottom of the post.

    Just a little earlier in time than my experience; we had a squarer, more modern desk phone, but our phone number used letters and numbers. In the ‘why-on-earth-would-I-remember-that</em? category, I still remember the phone number Turner 4-2126

    Now, gotta go, just as soon as I can find my car keys.

    Good TToT


    1. Thank you! When I had them many years ago they bought me enough time to prepare for surgery and I am praying for those results. I know surgery in inevitable, but I need some time to be ready for it. The more you do ahead, the better the recovery.


  3. My dad had injections in both hips last week (one is completely bone-on-bone) and he said he had 85% improvement by that same evening. Hope yours is as helpful!
