Oh What a Beautiful Morning, Oh What a Beautiful Week

Pictures of a Gratitude book, a funny book on butts, a happy baby after the butt issue. Things to be thankful for.

Hello. It is a busy happy week. I have many things to be thankful for. Here are some:
  • Free audiobook to listen to from Denver Public Library. This week I have The Grateful Life on my virtual shelf, accessible anywhere with my phone.
  • A smile from seeing a book for kids, however odd. It is a book about butts. Speaking of butts, I fixed baby Josiah's constipation. He was screaming in pain as he could not pass the darn, you know? His mom was crying too as she handed him to me. My daughter (auntie), said, "Thank goodness, he has a nurse grandma!" 
  • The after picture of Josiah, already smiling after "the incident."
  • Baby prune juice and food to prevent future constipation.
  • Church service online for the times I do not go. Today I virtually attended Alamo Church Community Church service in Texas.
  • Date night with Paul trying a different restaurant. I had shrimp tacos with Baja sauce. Yum.
  • This is a big one. I won a scholarship to a big nursing convention in Indiana. This is for the largest nurse specialty group I am proud to belong to, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.

Gratitude blog for simple things to help conquer big problems.
  • A walk in the park. It is 52 degrees. Warm enough.
  • Laptops to get school and work done. Is it a blessing (or not) that we can take "the work" home? This week it is a blessing.
  • Window stick ons for easy, clutter-free Valentine's month decorating. We needed to replace the Christmas decor and our windows were looking bare without replacements.
  • I smiled when I saw some beers in the store named after me! Sour peach beer, anyone?


Ten Things of Thankful

  1. Congrats on the scholarship! Very cool. And, 52 degrees, funny how relative comfort(able temperatures) can be... we had similar temperatures on Saturday. Felt like spring.

  3. Yep! Prune juice is an old and tried remedy when all else fails. Glad Josiah is all smiles again.

    I've only had shrimp tacos once, and they were delicious.

    That is so exciting that you won a nursing convention scholarship! Congratulations!

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? 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

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
