Week of September 7
Joining with Laurel Regan’s Gratitude linkup at Alphabet Salad.
Here are some things I’m grateful for and that have made me happy this week:
☼ My hand and wrist are nearly completely healed. My last therapy visit was today, and my doctor cleared me to go back to work. I can even start crocheting again—slowly and for short times.
☼ Delicious whole-grain bread from our local bakery.
☼ That we had a last week of hot summer weather before fall starts moving in.
☼ Our upcoming weekend trip to Baltimore.
☼ Having some time to start and work at practicing Zentangle, which I’m really enjoying.
☼ Community events like Cyclovia, in which about a mile of the street is closed to traffic for the benefit of walkers, bicyclists, inline skaters, etc., and including food trucks, entertainment, health and fitness information, and a dog dress-up contest!
☼ Getting maybe our last chance this year to eat outside at a restaurant with our dog.
☼ Having the Boston Red Sox’ Triple-A team, the Pawtucket Red Sox, playing just a few miles from our home and being in the playoff finals.
☼ That said, I’m grateful that my husband is patient with me when I get cranky because a ballgame goes into extra innings. He loves it; I just want to go home (it’s after 10 o’clock and getting chilly!), and I grumble things like “Why can’t baseball games end within a civilized length of time like other sports?”
☼ Gentle, warm breezes.
☼ The beautiful flowers (even roses!) and flowering bushes that are still around in nearly mid-September.
