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 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

I've been feeling kind of miserable lately, with house issues, spraining my ankle, getting a head cold, and then a stomach bug, so I think I should start doing this too.

Some basics...

- I have a job to go to
- a roof over my head
- food to eat
- wonderful family
- being sick is helping me lose weight :lol:

I agree and value this thread. It forces me to think about the good things in my life, even on gloomy mornings - and I'm not talking just about the weather.

+ a busy and stressful September is finishing and I survived well

+ Donna comes to clean today

+ the trees are beginning to turn - a colourful October lies ahead

+ going to Ottawa tomorrow afternoon for overnight with Shirleyanne who has been my friend since 1958

+ blessing of the animals tomorrow morning at our Church

+ feeling more in control of my workload or "volunteerload"

+ 7 hours of solid sleep last night :)

+ having more folks posting on this thread gives me other gratitudes to think about :grouphug:
