A to Z of Thankful Me: G

A to Z Challenge, Day 7:  G

G is for Grandmas, whose love never stops,


My grandma (standing), with her sister and grandma


Green Gardens that grow all sorts of crops,

Our garden in Washington
And Guide Dog puppies with ears that flop.


Sending Reno back for formal training, and picking up Drexel

    1. I have a feeling it was supposed to be a bit more posed, but my grandma tried to make a break for it! At least that's what it looks like to me.

    1. Nope, you beat you. I don't know what's up with my comments lately. I've had some not publish, and others duplicate.

  5. sunflowers! I'd love to have even the tiniest success at growing sunflowers (which would, of course mean giant flowers!)

    1. That photo was from our garden in Washington state, where gardening didn't really require a green thumb. I miss the ease of growing things there!

  6. I love the picture of Reno and baby Drexel! I got sidetracked when I read this post and emailed GDB to see if there is any way we can raise a puppy for them. There are several states that have puppy raisers, including Texas. Dallas is 5 hours away. Thought it was worth asking, even though the answer is probably no!

    1. I think that puppy raisers for GDB are limited to western states, but they might be able to put you in touch with a guide dog organization that does use puppy raisers in your area. The other option, of course, is to move west! We could really use more puppy raisers in our local group!

  7. Godiva-Chocolates!!! That's my favorite G-word! Sadly enough I haven't had those for ages. My days currently are in the G of Getting my butt kicked with fibro... (my worst F-word I can think of by the way)

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

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
