October 28 - What I'm Thankful for Today

Today is a good day. Five days to my surgery. I'm thankful I didn't need my walker today. The next time I'll use it will be Monday when I take it with me to the hospital. I'm thankful for my daughter. It's her birthday today. I could only leave a message telling her Happy Birthday on both phone and FB. I guess she's having too much fun today and she should. I'm thankful for a good night's sleep. I finally figured out how to sleep through the night with only getting up once not multiple times. Two bottles of water. No more. I'm thankful for the food on my table and a roof over my head. And heat in winter. Somehow we moved from Fall to Winter very quickly this year. I don't mind. It's my favorite time of year. I'm thankful for a call from my sister. We talked for quite a while. She will be staying a week when I get out of rehab. I'm thankful for working on Vendetta and New Horizons: Predators and Blue Fire. Vendetta is coming along well. I'm thankful I woke up this morning to enjoy a nice day, even though I can't go outside. I'm thankful for downtime watching favorite TV shows I haven't seen in many years. I love my Roku. I'm thankful I finished the notifications this morning and will work on them again before going to bed. I'm thankful for getting most of my fitness goals. I achieved 10K steps but missed the last hour of the hourly steps. Oh well. Okay, that's a snapshot of my day. What are you thankful for today? Tomorrow is my last therapy session for my right knee. This week feels like it's going fast and slow. Friday is my post-op appointment and the COVID test prior to surgery on Monday. Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. A nice spider to celebrate Halloween. Botanical Gardens Lego Exhibit.

That's a long list, and a good one at that. As for me, I'm thankful that both my packages arrived safely from amazon. I'm thankful my husband had a good day at work. I am optimistic and hopeful that he'll get the vacation hours he put in.

Happy Birthday to your daughter! I can't believe that you have reached 10,000 steps while still recuperating from surgery. You and Daisy amaze me.

Roku is very handy! Im loving facts of life, cold case, growing pains, etc on the roku channel. Nevermind being able to watch hulu and netflix by the roku too. So glad we got these new tvs with roku on them. Need one for livingroom now. Happy Birthday to your daughter. Hope she had a great day.

Add peacock to your Roku and you'll have even more favorites. There are some there that aren't anywhere else. I canceled my Hulu. I wasn't watching it enough to account for the cost. Thank you. I hope she did too. I'll head over to FB to see how she celebrated. I know she's planning to celebrate on Halloween too.

I'm glad it's a Lego creation too. I'm not fond of spiders either. Thank you. I checked FB since she didn't bother to answer the phone yesterday. She had a great day from the pictures I saw. I'm glad the water problem is fixed and it was only no power to the pump. I'm very happy you didn't get the blizzard they predicted. You should be thawing out with the sun shining at long last. I'm glad you got the moisture you needed, even if it was not the way you wanted to get it.

@crazyhorseladycx She's just being herself. I shouldn't be, but I'm used to it. At least now you have it fixed so it shouldn't be a problem for the rest of winter. I'm glad you got the necessary moisture you needed to stop the drought.

Nothing to be sorry about. This is needed and wanted surgery. I'm having a knee replacement for both knees. I will soon be pain-free from arthritis. This is my Christmas gift to me this year. My right knee is doing very well and Monday I will have the left knee done. Thank you. Yes, there is always a blessing even when it doesn't look like it.
