It’s time for the Ten Things of Thankful or TTOT Perhaps this is the week you would like to join us. If so, there’s a link at the bottom and you can jump into the wonderful pool of warm thankfuls! Make a splash!

1-5. Safety on the roads – It’s snow and ice happenings here in NC and the news stays on top of it. I am grateful for the updates and that I can turn to Spectrum 14 to get 24/7 coverage. Being an equal opportunity watcher, though, I turn to various local channels. Sometimes you need a new face or wardrobe change. So, grateful for news coverage, grateful for safety for my own household grateful I don’t have to go out in this, grateful I have my warm blanket, grateful to have power.

6. Good numbers – Got my lab results for my three month check in and most numbers are looking good. And happy I am able to change one of them for the better. And my blood pressure is much better!

7. Writing Conference – the TAF Write Now 2020 Conference is coming up in May. I am excited to attend and meet other writers and learn from the experts. Thought I would share the link in case any of you are close by. TAFWriteNow2020

8. French Press – My friends gave me this lovely French Press for my 60th birthday (been a bit ago) and I enjoy it so much. If you are a coffee drinker, you might want to try this. One of my coffee shops serve pourovers, which is almost as good.

9. Recipes – I am so grateful that I can go online and pull up pretty much any recipe I wish. It is so convenient. While I still rely on the old family cookbooks, too, I enjoy the ease of finding recipes online.

10. YOU! You are the most wonderful person to read this far! And now you get a chance to share your TTOT!! Go for it! Go ahead… Boom! It’s done!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Morning Coffee

As sure as the alarm
could go off
It need not
as bones are aching
for a walk
Padding to the pot
filling the vessel
Pondering the day
pouring the water
sopping the slosh
Starting the pot
waiting and listening
What’s up with the brew?
It. Takes. Coffee. Grounds.
to make coffee
If morning starts this way
it’s going to be a long day

It’s National Poetry Month and I am using the word prompt of the day “Morning”
Thank You to Bartholomew Barker for getting me started. You can go see what he did HERE

I will follow suit and use the provider of the “Morning” prompt, Robert Lee Brewer’s blog HERE
