This morning (barely) I'm grateful for:

-My occasional splurge for luxurious long, hot showers
-An excellent pedicure
-The cafeteria downstairs at work (my Cafe Gratitude lunch plans got moved 2 weeks down the road), always my Plan B and with healthy options
-Cotton Candy grapes (organic/non GMO) from Trader Joe's; my research says they're 8 years in the making, with nearly twice the sugar as regular grapes, explaining why they melt in your mouth; a cross-breeding with a wild grape
-Now I've got both ponds blooming with gorgeous water lilies
-My genius handyman; I've had NO water in my basement after his fix

My many appreciations this morning include:
-Remembering arnica which did wonders for my heel healing
-Shifting R attitude to ‘so nice’ and joking over the notion itself
-Taking watches in for new batteries and surprise sale of an old one instead of paying big bucks for repair
-Meditations
-Back to top score overall in Lumosity
-Backyard bliss time with R and M discussing Westworld leading to our own self awareness musings
