10 Things of Thankful: Week Three

I'm happily linking up again to the 3rd "10 Things of Thankful" blog hop.  I'd encourage you to hop over and view some of the other submissions.  There are many reasons to be thankful!

Ten Things of Thankful
 


1.  After not seeing the resident bunny for months, he is again making his appearance in our backyard.



2.  The temperatures have dropped down from the triple-digits to a much more pleasant range of upper-80s to mid-90s.

3.  John fixed the dryer, so it has heat again.  (I recognize #2 could help with laundry drying, but the frequent wind/dust combinations would probably blow freshly-washed, but now-dirty clothes into my neighbors' yard.)

4.  The honest auto repair shop fixed the rattling van.  No longer do we notice a vibration above 45 mph.

5.  Conversations with my granddaughter.



6.  Cute baby giggles.


7.  I filled my car up with gas the day before the price increase.

8.  The garden continues to grow.

9.  Though my projects never end, I do have time to work on many enjoyable things. 

10.   I can now run 5 miles at a time.  

Thanks for life, and the reminders of all that is good.

  1. Hi and thanks for being here for the 3rd week :) I love your photos and am very impressed that you can run 5k!

    Glad you got your van fixed - mechanical issues can be a niggling worry.

  4. I cannot believe that is the same baby!!! She's gotten so big.
    Bummer that the hot weather can't even be helpful with the laundry. It continues to amaze me how we live in the same country, yet live in such vastly different conditions.
    Good, honest mechanics are most certainly worth a grateful point!
    Congrats on the 5 miles! You're almost to that 10k mark!

  7. Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I guess you'll understand...

    How Naomi has grown!!! What a gorgeous girl is she. Everything good with her mom and dad?
    Good for me too, to realize I have lots to be thankful for. Sometimes it's easy to forget when live is dealing some blows, but I must never forget how blessed we are in other areas. Thank you for sharing your moments of thankfulness and helping me remember mine.
    Have a nice sunday.

  8. ...photo # 2!! (tell me that you know how you achieved that '3D' effect... very cool).

    running is so amazing, mostly because you have concrete and undeniable evidence of your accomplishment:

    (" ok, here is where I started... lets drive this way.... here is the halfway point, look out for that bicyclist! ...and.... right up ...there is where I stopped running!")

    1. Regarding the second photo, I achieved that effect with Picasa, a photo editing program. I'm not a skilled enough photographer to be able to achieve that with only my camera!

  9. Your granddaughter has expressive eyes - she's a cutie!

  10. You have 10 really good reasons! An honest auto mechanic? and of course 5 and 6 are my favorites but number 10 is just awesome! So happy for you because I know how hard you have worked on that one!

  11. Hi bunny! Great photo. Your granddaughter is absolutely stunningly adorable. And congratulations on running five miles! Truly! Happy Sunday!

  12. 1. Your granddaughter is darling. 2. I always seem to have a reasonably full tank when the gas is low and am running on vapors when the gas jumps up 20 cents a gallon. 3. Isn't it a little sad when we think highs in the 90s feel cool?

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
