Not Gremlins - a SuperMod. And then I forgot to post.

Today I am grateful for:
+ another glorious summer day
+ a relaxed week with good night sleeps
+ several niggles got done with very little effort
+ a great evening at "The Help" with three friends
+ no meetings all week!
+ printed the Church bulletin with no printer problems
+ four more days without commitments before the rush begins
+ time to read my book on the porch
+ the tomato avalanche is abating
+ I think I have blocked Jazz's escape routes under the dog fence

Ruth... pretty avatar!

- we had a wonderful time last yesteday - SIL came down. Later our cousins and Aunt Mackie came over for dinner. Aunt Mackie didn't feel so good.... but, she came over because SIL was here. It pushed herself to do it. However, my mom didn't feel good enough to come over. (phooey)

- I ate unplanned ice cream last night - but, that doesn't mean I should over eat for the next week.... I am grateful.

- some rain here is good. It should stop, however, be Monday's cookout with the neighbors

- I know that people really care about me - what a blessing to feel that

- my family, my friends, you all, cell, fb, internet, music

- lightweight portable folding chairs

- I stayed with my plan yesterday - even with the cookout here. DH brought home 36 chocolate candy bars for the s'mores. I freeked out. But, I gave the extra ones to the children to take home. I have four for my mom and they will be glad. Grateful to be willing to NOT eat all the candy bars. I did have a s'more - it about 150 calories. I ate it slowly and enjoyed every bite.

- fun cookout with neighbors. The kids are so darn cute.

- I am glad Mom lives so close now. I'll go over today and bring her all the 'doggie' bags of food from this weekend.

- family, friends, YOU ALL, fb, cell, internet, music

- outside fireplace
