15 April - What I'm Thankful for Today

Good afternoon from a gorgeous day in Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA. The high today was 71 F. It's currently 66 F and sunny with a light breeze. No clouds. I have much to be thankful for today. It's always good to have a plan to work with for the day. My plans for the day came with big changes. Pleasant ones. I'm thankful for my neighbor. They love to go to Mission BBQ. I went with them the first time. It's a wonderful place to eat and honors military and first responders. I joined the birthday club last week and they sent me a coupon for joining to be used by this Wednesday for a free sandwich. They asked me if I wanted to use my coupon today. So out the door I went. I had a turkey sandwich with potato salad. Before we finished, they came around to everyone with a fresh from the oven peach cobbler, free. It was all delicious. I've also accounted for all the calories. I'm thankful for a trip to Hy-Vee today after Mission BBQ. I usually go on Tuesday after Bible study, but now it won't be necessary. I got what I needed. My fridge is still looking a bit bare, but a lot better than it did. I also have bananas. I'm thankful for a trip to a thrift store after Hy-Vee. I didn't know about their second location. I found two reasonably priced things, one you see in the above picture, a new door hanger. The other is a ceramic lighthouse. I normally take the lights out, but decided to put it back and see if I could find a plug for it. It has two lights, a red blinking light at the top of the lighthouse and a white one at the lower part of the light house which lights up the windows. I'm thankful I have all my steps for the day. When I got home I found I still needed 1500 steps after all the walking in the stores, and walked the sidewalk of the complex. I'm also thankful I worked on New Horizons - Predators and Terrorists. Not much more than a readthrough with minor editing. This is a finished novel. I'm thankful I could spend time with you today. I finished the notifications twice. It's always nice to see how you are doing in your part of the world. I'm thankful for the phone call this morning from my daughter. It was two of the best hours of my day. She even told me she's proud of me. It brought tears to my eyes when she said that. Okay, that's my day, and yes, I played my games too. So, I think I checked off everything on my plans post. It will be an early night. What are you thankful for today? Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. My new doorhanger.

That makes me tear up that she told you she was proud of you, and she’s not my daughter! I’m thankful it looks like the storms set to hit us tonight will not bring my area tornadoes. Hopefully, no one gets the tornadoes.

@just4him Ugly and stupid? No, that’s not you at all. No, no tornadoes, thank goodness.

@AmbiePam No, it's not and never was. But it took a lot to convince me otherwise. I'm glad there weren't any tornadoes.

Thank you. I said something nice about myself. As long as she's known me, I never had anything good to say about myself. It's hard to see me as pretty or smart when I've been told all my growing up years that I'm ugly and stupid. I've learned to love myself and see myself as pretty and yes, smart too. I hope there weren't any tornadoes.

Beautiful doorhanger. I'm thankful that I don't have to pay a co-pay when I go to see about seeing a therapist. I will be going on Thursday. I'm also thankful that a piano company is going to come May 1st to see my uncle's baby grand piano. I'm hoping they will take it.

I am thankful for the nap I took this afternoon. I woke up and had what I call brain fog. I had a hard time doing normal things. I get this way when I haven't slept well, which I didn't last night. After my nap, which was about 45 minutes to an hour, I felt back to normal. Sounds like you had a blessed day.

You have done a lot today. I wonder if you have schedules for all the things you do every day. I am thankful that I was able to do a lot of housework today including cooking fording. Now, is the time for Mylot before going to bed.

I have plans, not really schedules. If I can get everything I plan done, wonderful. Sometimes those plans change, as they did yesterday. I'm glad you got a lot of housework done today.
