The weekend

Wow! its the weekend. I thought I’d get to sleep in, but no chance. My boys wanted to be fed. The dog came and started asking to be fed at 4:30am and the cat joined him of course. I am awake and it is once againa wonderful quiet morning here. I should be working out or reading the news or something, but I am here posting. I am so excited about a weekend day where so much is possible. I was thinking of going to the public library to find some new reads or music. I also am thinking of making a big dinner. Cooking is one of those things I love. I will likely post recipes or menues as we go. I’d love suggestions as well to make them better.  So, my thanks for this post is for the good friends we have. We saw some friends for dinner last night. As always our conversations were all over the place and never boring. I wish them luck in their travels and want them back safe. Of course I am so thankful for good friends, good food and even more so for the combination of the 2.


Awake at a strange time

I have been dealing with a bad cold for the past few days. It comes with a horrible coff. I just had to get up and have a warm drink to soothe things. I feel really fortunate to have the choices I do. I can get up and make a tea, sit here and enjoy it. The place is dark, cool, and quiet. My kitten is purring and my dog is snoring. Even though, I am not feeling so great, I think this is a perfect moment. I can post this and go read, make cookies or just simply go back to sleep. I think we do take for grantid all the freedoms we have. I hope to never forget this. Tonight, I am thankful for the quiet and the ability to enjoy it.

hello there. Nice to meet you:)

I wanted to start this blog to really start being aware of thinking positive. I wanted to share my thoughts with who ever wants to read. I hope you can join me in giving thanks for all the great things in our lives. We live in a wonderful country and have so much. I wanted to make sure I remember to be thankful. BTW this is not always going to be serious. Feel free to be thankful for whatever you wish to. I know I will.
