When Exercise Pays


Hello, hello fellow TToTers
I haven't forgotten to be thankful
It's just that the past month my schedule was full
You see, I again went back to school
To say, it's easy, that's just plain bull...

I have many things on my gratitude list
To share my joy, I can't resist
My dog, Velvet had a tumor removed
No cancer, cone removed
She's much improved

To make it fair, Snowball's pic is here
He's also cute, he made it clear
He's on my exercise discs to say, "mom, dear"
Stop exercising, stay off your gear

I have to thank our spring challenge
My family gained strength with exercise
And with participation fees we earned funds for college
Benefitting students with grades above-average

Of course, after workouts I thank God
For the food and energy He provides us
And for the people I get to invite
To share the grace with a company is a delight

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
