Ten Things of Thankful: A Quick List, but I'm Still Thankful

Photo: A red heart hangs from a wire. "Ten Things of Thankful" is written to the left of the heart

I'm tired today. I'm excited for this upcoming week, because I will spend it with my mom at RootsTech, a large genealogy conference, but right now I'm just tired. 

I don't write well when I'm tired, but I don't want to miss participating in the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop. 

So, here's a perfunctory list of things I am thankful for:

  1. a new, working thermostat
  2. the pile of yard waste is decreasing, and the pile of mulch is increasing
  3. spending an evening with my youngest daughter
  4. book club
  5. visiting with several friends at various times throughout the week
  6. recognizing and acting on promptings
  7. figuring out how to scan photos as TIFF files
  8. finding a fire pit for our fire pit area
  9. getting taxes done
  10. as always, John
Ta-da! I did it!

  3. and a most-excellent TToT it is! Can identify with the grats regarding most of your list, especially ...the new thermostat! lol (tell me it was one of those 'Nest' thermostats.) We don't have one but I've been in a number of houses that do and it apparently does everything but pay for the oil*
    Mild enough here this weekend to spend a little time in the woods, surveying upcoming yard projects.
    have a good week.


    *or gas or whatever is the common home heating fuel in your area

    1. We did get a Nest. I know we're not using it to its full "smart" capability, but it does keep the house warm. :-)
      (and natural gas is the fuel, btw)

  5. Down and dirty! That's the way to get a post written! I think our downstairs furnace has a thermostat issue, but as long as it still runs, we can hopefully make it past furnace season before we have to replace it! Enjoy your time with your mom!

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
