Good Week

ttot, gratitude blog

  1. A lollipop from my daughter she bought from her allowance debit card. It is her first purchase and she thought of me.
  2. My Fitbit and challenges I am in with my Fitbit friends encourage me to walk 10,000+ steps a day.
  3. The nice weather allows me to enjoy some time outside on my lunch break.
  4. My walking partner Velvet who is a dear to be with. She does not bark to other dogs and their people.
  5. Beautiful scenes like this birdhouses to be enjoyed while walking.
  6. My first ceramic plate in years I painted. What a stress reliever to paint this.
  7. Another painting, my only Denver Broncos cup.
  8. Daughter's love of painting gives us more reason to spend time together. Look at this box she painted.
  9. The home recipe to bathe poor Velvet who got sprayed by a skunk.
  10. Not pictured here is my son who got all A's but one B this summer semester in 12th grade.
This end of the week has been good. Today, perhaps, we'll even go to the mountains and take a hike.

    1. I've own dogs since I can remember and this is the first skunk spray. It was a big work getting the fouls smell out of Velvet.
      Well, my poodle, barks a lot too. Maybe it's a small dog kinda thing. They have to show the big dogs they are superior.

  6. You and your daughter are both very artistic! I think it's terribly sweet (no pun intended) that she bought you a lollipop as her first debit purchase. And good for your son to get those grades, especially in the summer!

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
