I am thankful she got in to see the doctor to get medication and hopefully she will be feeling better soon.
Hubby is at the dentist this afternoon and coming home hopefully with his tooth feeling better.I am again thankful.
Between Rug hooking last week being at Megan's and a quick trip to a nursery in North County I was busy gal. Then there was a horrible storm.
Jan knitted her sweater
I was impressed
We had a severe thunderstorm a couple days ago it was crazy. A young lady was killed by a tree which hit her car while she was driving and some reporters were hurt by a falling tree.San Diego county never gets winter winds like we have been having lately. Blame it on the El Nino .
I was so scared a couple of nights ago! The wind was so loud and just continued to blow and blow heavy gusts thru the trees. I finally got up and told hubby I was going to sleep on the easy chair in the front room.It was every man for himself I thought sheepishly. The back bedroom is closest to the large Eucalyptus and they were blowing like they were going to come down. It did sound like a mini train. I put my ipad on and my earphones in my ears.I turned on a Christian podcast station and blasted music til I fell asleep.This was way worse then a couple weeks ago.
I got the window hooked
Every day my life is so alive with one thing after another.I feel like I am constantly changing my hats. Being positive is hard when Life keeps throwing you hard balls but what is the alternative?
So because of my role models I see in my daily life I trudge ahead making the best of situations. Not having the answers to love ones who are in the middle of health struggles is heartbreaking but as I say to friends and family I am praying for you and hopefully it will get better soon.
Last night I was talking to my cousin on the phone and she was teasing me of how excited I get over common things most people take for granted but for some reason silly as it sounds It floats my boat.So I am going to list a couple of routine things that I am Thankful for dumb as it sounds.
Maybe you can think of common things in your life that make you happy and thankful for. First I love my I pad and I love that I can download books and audio books for free from the library.
Second I like my new large garden trash can it is huge and closes up nicely. The wheels are great when moving it around my garden. I am happy that green apple ice plant might have a fungus and has been dying around Crest and in my yard.I am happy for my endless supply of wood which hubby has cut up so we don't use our heater. I am thankful for my Vermont Casting wood burning stove and how warm it keeps us.Lastly I sure loved my nails getting done at Christmas and how fancy I felt. Lol.
So there you are simple me when things get difficult and I am feeling a little sorry for myself for a quick second.I think there has got be be something I can be happy for. I will reach into my memory bank and say to myself Is there anything to be Thankful for and there is always something to be happy about and off I go again.
This afternoon I am making chicken soup and as I do my dishes I am listening to a audio book called A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson . It has really kept my attention as he describes the Appalachian trail.
He makes you feel like you can see the beautiful Smokey mountains and it gives you an appreciation of what it takes takes to take off and really get tested by nature.It's a humorous book at times.
