Grateful beyond words today
* That my DIL's tumor retinal tumor is GONE! (Indicative of whole brain radiation doing its job! Will know how the other brain tumors have responded in another month or two...)
* That she is tolerating hormonal infusions and chemo better than expected...
* For getting through an extraordinarily busy week while struggling with allergies
* For a perfect "date night"
* For rain in the forecast (unlike much of the rest of the country....we need it!)
* For kitchen shelves and a fridge full of food

Today I'm grateful for:

-Sandra's 51-pound loss!!! In the words of Spark Guy - Woo Hoo!!!
-Maha starting to feel better
-Knowing I've done my research and I will vote; then shutting out the negativity and election drama (no NPR, debate watching, calls; friends know I don't want to discuss, little FB as people are nasty)
-My sister putting together a super fun 50th birthday bash (70s dress theme) with catered Mexican food truck; hoping we make it AWESOME (her 40th was very bad, spent flying back to KC alone with her husband in the belly of the plane to be buried)
-A nearby vintage clothing store; I'm on the hunt for tie-dye and a headband to go with my bellbottoms
-Loving the Italian spaghetti squash boat recipe I made, perfect as fall/winter "go to" and so filling, feel like I just ate a big plate of pasta, but so much healthier
-Always, my health

Hi ho,

Gratitude time~~

~ picked up friend Fritize (one way to catch quality time with her!) at 4:30am this morning to take her to the airport and filled her in on mutual friend Sandra's life, mostly from yesterday's gratitudes!

~ lovely website Sandra -- good work!

~ we're both marveling at your 51 pounds, Sandra!

~ SEVENTEEN reservations -- mind-blowing and what fun, you and R and son have ahead, Sandra!

~ lucky Fritzie is doing lawyer-type seminars in St. Petersberg, FL and then in Houston, where she'll also get to see family; I'll pick her and John up on Oct 29

Blessed be for my Sandra/Fritzie/Maha-centric post lol!

Kaligirl - I enjoyed Blue Apron and await your thoughts!!

Today I am grateful for:

-Maha's and Ann; so good to see you here again!!
-Finalizing my decision on a car, now just waiting for the insurance company to settle up - still VERY grateful that I walked away without a scratch, no whiplash, nothing
-Being able to work from home sometimes; extra time with my kitties and peace and quiet!!
-A clean house!!
-My friend who's taking care of my kitty girls the next two weekends when I'm in LA
-Work being calmer for the next month or so (the calm before the storm!! - Ha!)

How we behave toward cats here below determines our status in heaven.
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Good morning,

I'm grateful~~

~ for giving myself another day to mend, which (sadly) means missing chi kung class

~ scrambled eggs with feta and avocado -- simple, but prepared just to the doneness that I really enjoy -- with toast and brew

~ a beautiful, sparkling autumn day

~ productive interactions this morning (as always) with the director of El Zocalo, an especially bright, perceptive, and competent young woman

~ the peacefulness of living in the country

Blessed be,
Maha
