It’s time for Ten Things of Thankful or TTOT! Whatcha got to share? Here are mine:

1. Games! We played Yahtzee this past weekend! What fun with the family!

2. Friends and Friends Who Love to Write – I have a lovely friend who writes with me. Here is her blog: Penwize We are writing today, right now!

3. Love! This is something I wrote about the subject. Process for Love

4. Food! I have been in a cooking mood a lot lately. One of my favorite foods is chili and I make it probably weekly or pretty close. Another is bean soup. I recently posted my mother’s recipe for chili in the form of a poem. My chili is generally thicker and has other ingredients, but here is mom’s recipe: Recipe for Chili (this is a friend’s link for Medium, so you won’t have to be a member to read.

5. Weather! It has been BEAUTIFUL!!! Even today, as the temps have cooled, it is still so lovely outside!!

6. People who don’t speak the same language and are the eyes of love. That’s a mouthful! I met a couple at the grocery store coffee shop. He was getting his wife some coffee and taking the cream to her and I remarked how he was so sweet and it ended up being a conversation. He was speaking Spanish and I English and yet he, his wife, and I had a lovely chat of sorts. Love conquers all!

7. My Heated Wrap – I know I mentioned this before, but I cannot be thankful enough for this heated wrap my friend bought me. With the cool, damp weather, the old bones get achey and I actually keep this plugged in and turn it on. I love it. Sounds like a commercial LOL But I do love having this warm hug every day.

8. Weight Loss – it’s back on track. I always have a hard December, but I am back on track! WOOHOO!!

9. Exercises – I am doing physical therapy for my neck and spine and I am grateful to have homework and that I was able to improvise with my floor work as it’s hard to get up and down from the floor and I have figured out a way to get my exercises and not jeopardize my knees.

10 You! I am grateful for you and hope to hear your thankfuls!

10 Things of Thankful – 2nd Week of February

It’s that time again to express my 10 Things of Thankful or TTOT

1. So, I did this for another challenge called The Six Sentence Challenge. I thought it fit in the theme of gratitude. You can hop over to read my actual post on my blog. Organ donor, that I am, I am hoping there is something left of me to help somebody else. Right now, I am grateful my organs are serving me well.

2. Along the same theme, I had a decent report at the doctor this week as far as numbers go. There are some goals, but I like that my doctor listened to me, I mean REALLY listened.

3. I mentioned the 14 Words of Love last time, but I am going to share what I posted that has meant a lot of love backs. It makes me happy when I can do something that sparks thoughts about how to make this world a better place. So here’s the graphic:

4. Birthday weekend was lovely last weekend with my daughter. She turned 43. We went out to eat a couple of times and spent some good quality time together. I don’t have pictures other than those in my heart.

5. My daughter finished my loom blanket, so now I need to crochet the panels together. I am happy to get it. I will take a picture when it’s completed.

6. Valentine’s Day was sweet to spend with my love. We had a home cooked meal, neither having energy to brave the wild. He’s working long days and we will wait until the weekend to go out.

7. About 3 years ago we were given an ice cream machine and we truly love ice cream about #1 on the favorite things list. I have an awesome recipe which I make using erythritol and stevia since I try to avoid sugar. Here’s the Recipe: Low Carb Dairy Free Ice Cream and I made a batch last night.

8. House Slippers. I was given Uggs for Christmas and they have saved me from falling. That’ a great bit thankful!!

9. Weather has been pleasant and making it easier for me to walk to the mailbox.

10. Convenience Foods. Most of the time I do things from scratch, but lately I have been too busy and I am grateful that there’s about anything you can get in a convenience form.

Those are my 10! How about you?
