Saturday Gratitude Post — 02/01/2014

Another Saturday, already.  I am once again full of gratitude, as I have experienced another really good week.  I feel good, blood sugars are in range, and I am pedalling every day.  My house is relatively neat, and I cooked my breakfast this morning, Huevos Rancheros, which transported me back to Colorado.  Very nice — I really love Colorado, and I am so grateful I had five years there.

Our house committee is facing a lot of bitching from people who don’t want to take part, but who feel quite comfortable criticizing those who are doing the work.  I was invited, (read implored,) this morning, to stand for Secretary.  I remained true to my promise to myself, and declined.  But the chair of the committee has taken nothing but crap for days.  She is ready to quit, as another member already did.

Meanwhile, I continue to participate in activities:  this week, Bingo and a painting class.  I love that we have a schedule of this kind of activity.  I really enjoyed painting class today — acrylics, which are very forgiving, and I got a good start on a landscape.  I will be looking forward to next week’s session.  And, for the first time since I was about 7 years old, I won at Bingo, twice.  Someday I’ll find the photo of me and my giant blue poodle prize from that day.

My family is well — Dad turned 80.  Mom is looking forward to our trip to Chicago, as am I — can’t wait to see the parts of my family I haven’t seen for years!  The weather has been marginally warmer, which is nice, but still below freezing.  Maine in Winter — what else do I expect?

I am grateful for the peace and ease of my life right now, and I plan to keep it this way.   I love my home.  I am feeling extremely lucky, and extremely thankful.
