I feel proud of myself for making time to post in a few weeks streak. It just means one thing. I focus on gratitude for weeks now. What a great feeling.

This week, I am thankful for:

  1. The beautiful mountain views in my city, just over ten minutes drive.
  2. 60-degree mornings, so the hike felt very refreshing.
  3. The energy to rise early and avoid the crowd.
  4. My dog joining me in the otherwise solitary walk.
  5. The effect of going outdoors has on me--wonderful happy feeling.
  6. Calories used for exercising. 
  7. Days off to enjoy life outside work.
  8. Coffee to keep me going on my workdays in the hospital.
  9. My son adulting. He paid for his two old tickets!
  10. Apps to motivate me and lose a few pounds.

Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro
