2020 Begins with Gratitude

What am I thankful for, this beginning of 2020?

  • The little people around me. Look at my grandson about to throw his Happy New Year headband. I only have a second to snap this picture.

  • Talk Therapy
The last couple of weeks of 2019 was rough. I scheduled to talk to the therapist and it is finally here. Have you ever want to just spill your guts out but do not want to affect your loved ones in the process? The therapist has the perfect ears for that.

  • Podcasts
I have my favorites and here are some by Suze Orman, Dave Ramsey, Dr. Michael Greger, and more. I shared this with a friend today who has some money issues. I especially recommend Dave Ramsey. Sometimes  Many times I need some scolding so I listen to his podcasts a lot.

  • My Phone Camera
It is really handy to take pictures of my grandson. Look at him eat as he sat on the used high chair I bought for cheap at Facebook Marketplace, and as they play with the used toys I bought or got for free from the same platform. The Marketplace is my new Craigslist with the convenient ways to pay and people you can preview. One of the sellers, I learned, I have common friends with.




  • Noise-Cancelling Headphones
I listened and watch some coaching exercises with the Aaptiv app without disturbing other gym-goers.

  • Veggie-loaded Eggs Benedict
It is so good, I did not miss the meat at all. I was so upset a few days ago, I went out by myself for breakfast on a fave breakfast place. OK, it is at Rupert's! This restaurant did not disappoint.

(I want to blame the snow and the slippery road, and not the young driver who insisted on driving thru it without practicing in the snow with an experienced driver first. I mean two accidents in 45 days [however injury-free] is JUST TOO MUCH).

That is my ten (bolded) gratitude kinda-list. What are you thankful for? Anything similar to mine?

  1. Your grandson is adorable! I work with 1-2 year olds now, and you have to be QUICK to get a good picture of them, because they are QUICKER!
    Glad you found a therapist you can talk to.
    I love podcasts! I listen to The Moth, This American Life, Snap Judgment, My Favorite Murder the most.

    1. Dyanne, I am really enjoying the podcasts, so much better than listening to radio.

  2. I love those photos grandson. He is on a great start to the new year.
    It is great to live in a day and age when people don't feel they need to hide the fact that they might need to see a therapist sometimes.
    We have a couple of favorite restaurant places too. They never disappoint either.
    Hope you have a great week!

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
