+ smiling along with Beverlyjoy - I like being on this side of the grass

+ a dump of snow yesterday that was actually manageable

+ felt good to shovel the deck and steps for my poor Disney

+ dogs are so funny coming in covered with snowballs

+ finished the applique on the last of the 12 Days of Christmas quilt blocks

+ made a huge pot of excellent soup from my leftovers in the veggie compartment - I feel so virtuous

+ ticker is at lowest weight since 1983 "Vanity, vanity, thy name is woman"

+ Girls' Family Dinner on Sunday - 12 women and kids plus dogs

+ getting a good handle on taxes and looks like a small refund will be the result

- my self-esteem is high enough that I care when I disappoint myself

- my attitude is positive enough that mis-steps don't dissuade me

Today I am grateful for

+ my wonderful garage guys who rescued me yesterday when the transmission fluid leaked out of my car on the highway

+ was able to resist the Chinese buffet when in town

+ nice coffee chat at the Diner with Barb and Miss Lillian - sweet and fun ladies

+ was able to blow a goodly amount of money on new clothes -Size 12 in pants now!

+ bought a gorgeous red rose bush to grace the kitchen table and then go into the spring garden

+ my chicken soup for dinner was delicious and just enough

+ just a few niggles to clear up today and tomorrow - fresh start Monday

+ ticker is still truthful

+ today's warm wind will get rid of some of the snow

~ Spring will be here soon.
~ Beautiful Utah mountains will be wonderful to hike in when it gets warmer.
~ We bought a house last fall so we'll get to garden in our new large backyard this year.

Today I am grateful that

+ I refused all drink offers at the Reception last night! Driving home at one in a snowstorm was not a great experience!

+ all advance prep for tonight's dinner party is done!

+ found a linen tablecloth in my stash that will work on my oval table with the leaf in it

+ time today to try a new recipe to eat during the week for lunches

+ new clothes all fit without alterations and work well with some of my existing wardrobe

+ very warm weather expected mid-week that will knock down the snow

+ for the first time in many years, my knees let me kneel down for Communion. Aleve helped so it really wasn't a miracle!

Thanks Ruth!!! It was a special day. We are spending time at my son's home with my GS too. LOVE IT. I've had a wonderful day.

- so much fun with Alex today

- Alex painted a wooden birdhouse for me. It's a treasure.

- DIL is feeling good... only about 6 weeks or so for the new baby ...

- I played, told stories, did board games, made a cave, sang songs all day long... how could a person have a better birthday!

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

- the baking pan that is set up to let each brownie have an 'end piece'. DIL made brownies with candles. I had a little bit.

- I am smiling.

I am thankful for my health, even though I've not done much to help my body in that department lately! I will be able to lose weight before diatebes or high cholesterol catches me.
