My Ten Things of Thankful
It's a promising-future-week

(1) Here’s my Velvet doing Child pose
With our early morning yoga
Look at her extend her paws
She’s my cute partner in yoga

(2) The next pic is some soup
I made from leftovers
I put together bread
And some food from the last dinner

It’s quick and very filling
Delicious as my daughter said
Thank goodness for the internet
For the ideas and tips I read

(3) The view of the lake is pretty
Combined with the weather that’s sunny
Like a painting of an inviting picture
But as true as it can be

(4) Here’s Velvet again with me
My very willing companion
She goes with me everywhere
In any destination

(5) She sits down when I sit down
Overlooking the water
She relaxes when I rest
On this warm and very nice weather

(6) She walks along the garden
Sticking her nose up as she smells
The fragrance from the flowers
She enjoys it, I can tell

(7) Then there’s a picture of me
Modelling the earrings I misplaced
I was glad that I found them
They’re gift from mom I can’t replace

(8) Have you seen enough of Velvet?
I don’t think you have, so here 
(9) And here’s the 4th picture of Velvet
Please forgive me, she’s my dear

(10) Not pictured but most important
My teens are safe and behaving
It’s a better week than last
Their future seems more promising

  1. It's wonderful when something special is lost then found again. I had lost a ring Bryan had given me. It went missing for a couple of years, but showed up seemingly out of nowhere. Glad your earrings from your mom are back in your ears.

    1. I like almost anything my mom gives me. She loves jewelries, so she usually gives me and my teens jewelries. I cannot complain.

  4. Nice post Carin :)
    Too much Velvet? No! She's adorable. I love the first picture - she does a perfect Child Pose :D Dogs are truly our best friends, aren't they?
    Great idea for soup. I've never done the "throw in the pot what you have handy" lol. One day maybe I'll be adventurous.

New Year 2021 Gratitude

Welcome to my first post in the New Year 2021. Most of my off days are still spent indoors. It is cold outside. 39 degrees in Colorado. With still some social distancing, I still have many things to be grateful for this second wave of COVID. A family member was hospitalized in December but released in early January in better health. The COVID population in my hospital is low. I completed my 2/2 COVID immunization. It is something to be thankful for being in Tier 1A as I work in the intensive care unit. A working fireplace to sit close to - at home. A pedicure service for me and my daughter (and a cheese grater for callus removal *laughing out loud*) Chair massager at home to go home to after a long day at work. My family loves the chair, even little Josiah who is not even two. Funny Josiah whatever he does. He eats like a dog with a spoon and fork in his hands. Who needs those spoons and forks? They are just props. Kiddie masks fitting Josiah. He does not mind much wearing it. For many

Comfort

I harvested some greens from my indoor hydroponic planter . The greens can't get fresher than these, harvested right from my dining room. They are perfect with the Costco-size beef and pork.  I cooked six dishes. Most left-overs will be frozen for later like after-work dinner when most times, we are too exhausted to cook. I am grateful for the memory of cooking comfort I remembered from childhood in the Philippines--peanut stew, adobo, pork chops seasoned with lemon pepper, and sour soup.  I am grateful for the recipes readily available from the internet, the oven, instapot, and air fryer. I was able to cook 6 dishes in 2 hours, preparation time included. You'd think I was in a cooking contest under time-pressure. Only the judges (my family) are more forgiving and very appreciative of my cooking. I am grateful for the simple things I get to enjoy with my family--walking outdoors, however cold, before the snow hit--picture taking, and watching TV together. I am even thankful for
