WHAT!!! It’s December already! Well let’s get this decorated with some Thankfuls!!

1. Art – I was able to work on a watercolor at the senior meetup yesterday, while everybody made it to the lunch beforehand, they had other plans or go to chatting long after I left the restaurant, but no worries. I had the whole art room to myself and got some good headway on my secret project.

2. Music – I learned yesterday that signing show tunes could help with Alzheimer’s. While I am a bit skeptical, but I do know that learning new things is great mind stimulation, I am trying to broaden my musical choices. I don’t think this has to be exclusive to show tunes and that’s a good thing because I know few. Daddy sang country music around the house, usually at night, while we were growing up. Later in life, post Alzheimer’s, he was more interested in country gospel and sang with some others at the assisted living. He did not pass from Alzheimer’s, but his cognitive understanding seemed to be later in onset than what you typically see. So, maybe there is something to this.

Prompt: Ring

3. I Write Her Challenge is back up and running, thanks to Susi Bocks, the prolific writer who keeps us going with haiku and senryu ekphrastic interpretations. Here is this weeks: Circle of Life

4. I do not own a car, so therefore the calls I keep getting about my car warranty getting ready to expire are easy to delete from voicemail. I am thankful I don’t have to worry about my car warranty.

5. I also do not have charge cards, so therefor the calls I keep getting about my VISA credit card are not important. Whew am I ever so thankful for that!

6. I am thankful that I qualify for Medicare and that I have this insurance. And I am thankful they never call me.

7. 8. My brain scan came out perfect! And I am thankful that there are shots to help with the spine and I get round two on those this week and that they give me happy medicine to prep.

9. Angel Card Project is going and we have over 30 cards sent so far. Want to help? Go here:Angel Card Project

10. And now it is time for you to join in and share your cheer! Why not jump in?

Oh my! Where did November go? I don’t know about you, but I am sitting here wishing for a cup of cocoa, my crocheting, and putting my feet up. So, without further delay and before that last plate of turkey, here are my TTOTs!!

1. My Post (17)
I am grateful for mentors and this week I have someone who is helping me refresh my old skills and add some new ones.

2. My Post (16)

3. My Post (15).png
My dear one gave me this thankful and I wholeheartedly agree.

4. I am grateful that one of the people I met via another group asked for people’s Flash Fiction stories for her podcast and mine among those featured today. It was kinda cool to hear somebody read my story out loud. Here it is:
Episode 8: Final Friday Edition Here’s the link to the original story: Bottled Up

5. Six Sentence Story – I am super grateful for Denise providing us with prompts every week. This week the prompt word was “Pound” and I decided to something about eating disorders, a subject near to my heart. While the subject matter may be sad, the meaning is important and I am grateful to be able to try, at least, to reach out on this one.Here it is: Clearly Stricken

6. Living Poetry Monday Prompt – this is something I look forward to on Monday mornings and that is the weekly prompt. Bartholomew Barker does this with such dedication and here is this weeks response: Souls for Loaves

Grateful I don’t need to go get butter for biscuits on Black Friday – This Happened to Me, But Never Again!

8. This RECIPE which I changed into pumpkin ice cream instead of making pumpkin pie and it has no sugar.

9. That is 1943 daddy had this Thanksgiving dinner on the USSNCBB55

“On the evening of November 25, 1943, we had our first real action. The day was Thanksgiving. We had a swell turkey dinner that afternoon. Air defense was sounded that evening and we went to our stations. After about 20 minutes our anti-aircraft battery cut loose and for the first time we were conscious of a formidable enemy.”
Lloyd Glick, Musician 1/c

10. Last, but not the least here is the place where you can offer your thankfuls. I can’t wait to hear!

It’s that time again to visit the many reasons for thankfulness. So,without delay, let’s get started:

1. Art: My Post (14).png

2. Sisterhood: This was taken on New Years and I am the younger one. My sister, Paula, would have turned 69 on November 18 and I am grateful for the time she was on this side of the veil. And I always seem to know when she peeking in on me.

5. My Post (12)

6. Whimsy: I wrote a story I want to share. Why Can’t I Wake Up As a Kindergartner

7. Six Sentence Stories – still going strong. Here’s a fun one, nostalgic about our father who played a trick on us: Time to Get Up!

8. 9. Quiet Thanksgiving being spent at home. Daughter is coming and has to work the day after Thanksgiving, so we are going to be homebodies.

My Post (4)
Every day is a great day to be grateful!
My Post (5)
What would my life be with without color? I suppose I would have to adjust quite a bit, but today I don’t need to do that. My Post (6)
Peaceful days are the best days of all and it’s important to find a bit of peace in each day. One of the soothing things that I picked up after a long hiatus, is crochet. I forgot how it calms me.
My Post (8) This is dedicated to my dear, departed sister who made it her mission to see that her grandchildren knew where to find the good ice!

My Post (9)
Italian Soup – Yum
My Post (7)
