On this last November morning I'm grateful for:

-Netflix series "Alias Grace" (based on Margaret Atwood's book, which I hear is even better) leading me to more good winter reading material
-A mid-week text from my sister, just because
-E-mail exchanges with my mother
-Friends
-Continuing kitty antics (fear, mostly) of gifted drinking fountain; don't know if they'll ever use it, it's been nearly 2 weeks!

This morning I'm grateful for:

-My favorite event every year and favorite volunteer gig, the luminary walk at the arboretum
-Walking, literally for 6+ hours straight up and down hills and through the woods as I lit, relit and snuffed luminaries (record crowds due to 70+ temps made it more difficult this year)
-Being able to stay when they needed volunteers to accommodate the crowds to stay open an hour later
-The miracles of stretching and Ibuprofen; I don't feel like I walked for 6+ hours this morning, despite barely being able to stretch at first when I got home!
-SparkPeople crediting my exercise minutes toward my 1,000-minute trophy, even if it only gave me points of 120 (daily max)
-Meeting dear friend for lunch at a restaurant I've not been to in a long time
-Having a massage scheduled for late afternoon ... aaaaaaah
-Anticipation of a quiet cooking night at home hanging with my kitty girls and maybe some streaming Netflix

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

Happy Thanksgiving, indeed!!!

This morning I'm grateful for:

-2005, the year I turned Thanksgiving into a daily, often twice-daily, routine, rather than a once-a-year "think of what you're grateful for"
-The sun is shining; it's supposed to be in the 60s today here
-The six kitty eyes staring at me as I woke up this morning! (morning treat rituals, but they don't wake me, just wait, snuggle in and stare)
-Going to spend the afternoon and share a meal with dear childhood friend and her family, their farm is one of my favorite places to be, especially when the weather is so great as the focus is on outside
-Finding a card that had two pictures of B in it that I had totally forgotten about
-The timing of an old note from B showing up in an interesting location

This morning I'm grateful for:

-Home, sweet home
-Turning a lost car in economy parking into an hour+ of exercise just walking up and down the aisles in light mist
-A wonderful sister trip filled with gorgeous hiking, amazing art galleries, good food, a day with special friends and overdue time with my sis
-Special family time in LA celebrating my mother's 75th birthday; her party went smoothly and she really enjoyed it, as did everybody else (30 total)
-I got us to and around Santa Fe, day and night, even in rain, including secluded hills with an uncanny (for me) sense of direction; my sister was shocked as I'm not known for my sense of direction!! Ha! Maybe all my hiking has helped!
-Last, but not least, Cassie, Cleo and Rosie; Cassie's always my holdout and it took her about 90 minutes to let me love on her; the other two were all over it instantly!
