It’s scarry how many times I have posted this month 3, 4,5…who knows it’s so high! Happy Halloween Thankers!

*fun lunch with the boss. We were at church downtown, close to where she works, so we met and walked to the restaurant. Super healthy, only ate ½ of pretty small meal, my wife was surprised.
*keeping active with work- not posting here unfortunately- except for one day, while not doing great in the mem-brain.
*not going postal, getting the run around trying to pay some obscure local taxes. Oy bureaucratic hell!
*great shopping yesterday, and today. Shrubs, Ground Covers, and Hello Pansies!!! Luv them!
*rain tonight, been a dry driest month of the year- October.

take scarred, bob

Thankful today
* For the BEST pedicure I've ever had...did I NEED IT!
* For new autumn/winter flowers abundant in the front yard and on the porch.
* Decisions made for bathroom fixes. Demo to start tomorrow!
* Christmas flights booked.
* Surprise Indian food, made by a neighbor, waiting for me on my front porch when I got home after a LONG, but productive day. And it was DELISH!
* My hubby coming to me in my dreams last night, I woke up laughing with him. And have gone through the day, feeling his cuddles and friendship and smiles...
* Going back to bed after early awakening, allowing dog at my waist, the cat at my feet, and having a sense of a new family....

So much to be grateful for this day
A weekend of travel across the Rocky Mountains,
to Missoula to see my son run his last Cross Country Meet
to Spokane to see my daughter's crew team row down the river.
Larch on Lookout Pass at noon
evening snowstorm on Rodger's Pass
Home safely.

Today I am grateful for:

-My work on embracing Mondays as it's been a difficult transition for me (I enjoy my work and love my company, but I'd rather not have to work on somebody else's schedule)
-Visualization; what a great technique to help you reach goals
-A great 2-mile walk at lunch with two co-workers
-Farm to Market bread, specifically the grains galore rolls that will go with the huge pot of soup I made yesterday
-Batch cooking; love, love, love it as a healthy and useful tool for a very busy schedule
-Thoroughly enjoying some of this beautiful fall day (rain predicted for most of the week after today)
-My partner making a Trader Joe's run today so I don't have to do it on my way home (major yay, even as much as I love TJs)

Have a great evening all,
Stephanie

On this Monday morning, I continue to be blessed and am grateful for
- emoticon skies before some needed emoticon giving us time to bring 'in' unfinished pergola parts and equipment
- short work-week as I head off to CA for a conference
- much needed help over the weekend to build the pergola, racking a little, but stable
- time to run errands and buy emoticon treats this evening
- a much needed emoticon with my DH tonight

- For my neighbors who baked a cake, opened a bottle of wine, and sang happy birthday...making me laugh, even when I didn't want to
- That I was able to share 26 of my husband's past birthdays with him

Tonight, I am grateful for:

-A wonderful day yesterday filled with helping two very deserving organizations (although I was so whipped last night I didn't even go to the computer when I got home near midnight)
-Walk and talk today with my good friend for almost an hour at a local park
-Another stunningly beautiful fall day in Kansas City (I'm enjoying each and every one that I can because I know what's around the corner)
-My friend and I planning on a soup exchange tomorrow night ... we both love soups (hers is an African chickpea and kale, mine an Italian vegetable bean) - Maha, yours looks wonderful also
-A very relaxing day doing very little physical other than walking, but mainly R&R, including a rare short nap!!
-A very special visit from our Siamese who was just SO snuggly this afternoon; major treat

Have a great night all ...

Good morning,

~ to have finished the "first round" of the linguistics paper, even though the prof has found fault with it that will require further work

~ my wonderful prof friend, with a PhD in linguistics, is going to help me with references and ideas for making it longer

I was feeling frantic earlier as my oldest was getting set to leave for the big Brazilian college board exam today. It is a big thing of thankfulness that he was able to sign up to take this test at all. He has been mostly homeschooled which is taboo in Brazil. I am so overwhelmed that we signed up and it is happening.

Thank you Powers Above! The results are in Your Hands, dear God. And hopefully the answers are in my boy's head! emoticon

After months of conflict in my home because of the actions of my 16 y.o., things are somewhat calm. Resolution has not arrived, but living is being accomplished and learning. His big day will come, too!

Thanks to all of you for encouragement on my page, in my sparkmail box, and through reading happy posts each day right here.

"You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance." Kahlil


9 Days until:  Back to Brazil

A healthy attitude is contagious but don't wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.
-- Tom Stoppard

Good morning,

Bowing in GRATITUDE to this amazing community-of-spirit~~

~ this is a GREAT place to "catch" a healthy attitude...everyone's sharing of some of the Good in their lives is so life-affirming and engaging...LOVE seeing BLESSED DAILY and BOB with us ANYTIME (but all the time is best, of course)

~ the larger SparkPeople.com network and resources, a virtual multi-layered tool chest full of all the instruments we could possibly need, from tracking and helpful articles to real emotional support, for the journey to optimal health

~ I scored ADVANCED in the Language Testing International telephonic interview (I'm *blown away* 'cause I thought I'd *blown* it!)

~ Robin arrives this morning, and Robert has spent many hours preparing the room for her

~ Robin and I head into Little Rock to have lunch today with Irish friend who just arrived for a visit

Blessed be,

Today I have a long, good list ... but first I'm thankful to laugh out loud when I heard about Bob's church training session and I smiled happily to hear about Transformation's birthday party...

*promo this week on bus fare from my little interior to the big city on just the day I went
*an extra 5 on hand to help a neighbor who couldn't find her change to pay the bus
*time with Taz at the city's only mall/shopping center
*some great purchases
*hot orange painted and manicured nails

Today I am thankful for:

*Apple launch of new products Tuesday. Always interesting to see where tech going. This one was especially nice, because I didn't feel the need to buy anything.
*good morning of training at Church. Yes I know you are thinking- boy does he need that!- but alas, I was training the guys on pruning, I wasn't receiving instruction from the priest.
*didn't fall, or mis-step on the job site! Always thankful for that! No lighting bolts at cussing slip ups- also always a good thing, especially at the Church
*dealing with some older invoices and getting a few out. Doing well keeping up with current invoicing, but haven't been able to deal with older ones much. This was a good first step- just got to keep taking those little bobby steps!
*new episodes of Grey's Anatomy on Hulu+. It's been a really comforting show for me to watch, during bad periods. Now it's just good just to see old friends, especially with a darkish lead character.
*getting back to post here in same month, let alone same calendar year.

take care, bob

Good afternoon! I realize I forgot to come here yesterday...though I went to bed last night, filled with gratitude.

* For an amazing birthday lunch for my hubby, with six of his old coworkers. I was SO anxious prior to going...I guess because they were HIS long time friends (a few from before we even met!), and loved him so much. I just felt like I couldn't face them, but once I got there, I felt SO much love, compassion and consideration flowing from them all. This group of people loved him so much, and it was lovely to be able to share laughs, memories, and tears with them all... We celebrated the upcoming birthday (Oct 27) as if he were physically with us all. The next celebration of a birthday in the group is Dec 11, and I am now the "substitute" Alan, to be included in all the upcoming events!
* To go to bed, with tears and a simultaneou smile...knowing that all the things I loved about my hubby were so validated. And to have heard from his friends how very much he loved me...and all the stories he shared with them about our love over the years...
* That I was able to be assertive in dealing the painter (who has yet to completely finish this job...) and the sliding door installer, who also has not returned phone calls.
* For another day of gorgeous weather, which is helping keep my spirits up
* For Trader Joe's processed foods. They are at least clean, and contain no GMO's. Make it easy on a long day when I no longer like to cook...
