It's Fall 2020

I have so many reasons to be thankful
I am now married to Paul
Without a ball
We pull
A simple ceremony before the fall

And this weekend we borrowed my grandson
Who is now Paul's (also) grandson
Little Josiah gladly welcomed
Grandpa Paul without a question

He was such a delight
Easy to excite
With kisses, rides, bubble bath, and chocolate
But he got so active, we thought we had triplets
After that, Paul and I have decided
Milk chocolate drink? We should have skipped it
Because little grandson (and grandparents) 
Would be better without it


Oh after the wedding, we had small get-togethers
To celebrate after in good times and weather
We entertained friends, we barbequed together
And maintained a safe distance
As our health truly matters

My friends' son, so chatty 
Bragging about his stuff
He was showing me his airplane, scorpion, and other stuff

Oh, I have to tell you
I just got elected
As president-elect in a nursing organization
Where 11 years I invested
Nursing service volunteer work
Where I am needed

We did the inauguration via Zoom
When in the past we did this celebration
In a special destination
With a big production
But my team learned to do it online
And the organization turned out more than fine
We had a beautiful inauguration
The best for the time


To end this post, I had to look
For every autumn - ish picture from every recent nook

Here's my wedding cord
When we tied the knot,
A hotel shot where we booked,
From a casual shot, I took,
 the bouquet I used,
A coffee mug we chose
To go with our wedding cake
That's oh, so good

There's a shot from our last breakfast
Two days after the wedding
And the last pic was the time
To the altar, we were walking

That is all folks
Thanks for reading. 


Ten Things of Thankful

  1. Wow! Great job putting your TToT in poetry! Congratulations (again) on the wedding and your election. I understand what you mean about one child seeming to be three. LOL.

  2. Such an enjoyable TToT, and one you will enjoy reading again down the road a ways. I totally understand the impact that chocolate has on the behaviors of some children. I stopped buying any chocolate ice cream because of reactions one of our children had every time after eating it. . .rashes and behaviors.
    Congratulations again on your wedding, and now on being elected the new president of the nursing organization.

  3. I'm with Pat and Kristi, most excellent TToT in both substance and style.
    Very cool!
    Congrats on the wedding and your becoming the president of your nurses group.
    Sometimes the busiest weeks are the best.
    Have a good week.

Smile

Hello, hello. We're passed the middle of the year. How different this year has been so far. I only hope it will get better with more peace and good health needed around us. I understand we cannot totally control the world if at all. But I can improve myself and hopefully positively influence others.
My little grandson turned 15 months and can walk faster now while he plays with his toys holding one with the right and the other with his left hand. Every time he falls, he gets back up on his feet quickly without crying and asking for help. He has grown so much in less than two years. He is easy to please, and smiles from the simplest things--a cup of fruit, playtime with family, a new toy . . . He likes to do things independently and asks in his own way for assistance when he needs it.
I can smile too with the simplest things around me and be grateful for what I have. I have many blessings so far. We are healthy, we have food on the table, we have jobs, we have a loving family. My plan…

August Thankfuls

It is August first. It is my mother's birthday. We would have been celebrating in Las Vegas today and having a reunion but because of the current circumstances of doing our part to keep each other healthy, we canceled the get-together. We celebrated in spirit and togetherness via Messenger video. 
Here's my gratitude list. A visit from my son in my new home. He stayed a bit and we talked and ate together. Just the two of us.My reservation in a nearby city went through however last-minute. It will be nice to get away but not have to fly to a new area. It has been months since I did something for fun away from home. I will be doing short hikes with Paul. The patio picture is a little glimpse of the place.A picture from 2018 with my mother in Vegas. We went swimming. It was a good day on her birthday week.My grandkids greeting their great-grandma with a video. This week's humble harvest and the near future's. Support from Lettuce Grow where I got my planter. I don't think…

Daisy

It's been a good week. My Friday ended with a nomination award from a co-worker who witnessed me helping an African-American man in the hospital pharmacy last March. He did not have enough money for his co-pay. I helped him pay for his prescription without him asking. My boss and a couple of co-nurses saw me receiving this award. I guess I made more than one person happy from this act. I, for one, am so happy I was in the pharmacy at the right time. This is the 5th time I have been nominated for the DAISY award so it is a big deal for me. 
I am a rookie gardener. So I am proud of the little successes in my mini garden. Look at my future eggplant, tomato, and a few strawberries. The strawberries are small and sweet.
My grandson often makes me laugh. At 14 months, he is riding this tricycle for the first time and is having such a great time.
We only have 18 COVID patients in the hospital. That is good.
Have a good day you all.
