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!

Resistance

What resistance's about? We think we know We watched the media, and they said so The resistance's not fresh, but dark and deep Let's pray from sunrise until we sleep Whichever side we are on, our fate we own Stay kind, do good, we're not alone

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
