Tom 1) I had a terrific vegan burrito for lunch today.
2) My left knee was bothering me, but it's getting better.
3) I found a new home for the last 2 of the goldfish I took in quite some time ago. (I made it clear to the one who adopted them that I would take them back if it didn't work out... but his 5-6-year-old son seems to love them! The dad, who took them, will be responsible for their care.)
4) I'm planning a trip to Ontario sometime from late Spring to early-mid Summer.
01-23-2020 05:51 PM
Tom 1) Winter is half-over.
2) It's not completely over- so everybody who loves snow (ugh), ice (TRIPLE-ugh), and all that can still enjoy it.
3) I found my driver's license/ID (I knew it was around here someplace).
4) I went through a lot of clutter today.
5) I've been looking into getting solar electricity for my place- and I think this year it's going to happen, one way or another.

inhalecalm To make my day, these following reasons are enough :

In the morning when I see my baby's innocent face.

When I meet my bestie.

Purp I did the Viaduct to Tunnel 8K run today!! (Bye, Viaductica)

I didn't have lunch with my friend today (she was sick), but I had lunch with my sister and brother and their spouses, so that's good.
My hearts of palm "Pulled pork" was a hit.
I started on a family photography project I hope will be done before this summer.

Tom 1) My goldfish will be about 13 years old sometime this year!! (I took them in when they showed up in my co-worker's koi pond back in 2006. I have no idea where they came from originally... maybe eggs on plants they bought for the pond.)
2) Thinking about my goldfish, I'm remembering that my co-workers' koi didn't eat them, although Koi are quite large. YAY, NON-CANNIBAL FISH!
3) After years of not playing my keyboard, I'm starting to get back into it again.
4) Where I live, it's sunny and going to warm up... although I'm even happier for the folks out in the midwest.
5) I bought locally-grown heirloom varieties of apples at the farmer's market.

11-26-2018 05:32 PM
Tom 1) I remembered my VB password after having gotten it wrong for several days! (We're supposed to have different passwords for each website/application we use, and they're supposed to be "strong" and hard to guess... so of course I have to write them down someplace and hide them, but I forgot where I hid my VB password.

2) Work went well today.

3) I got lots of stuff done over the weekend- both fun stuff and gotta-do stuff.

4) My youngest sister who lived out west for most of the past 3 decades is living in the area again.

I gave up caffeine when I switched my consumption habits 4ish years ago and replaced the multiple hot cups of coffee with hot cups of herbal infusion etc. that usually consist of a variety of choices like red clover/stinging nettle, ginger/burdock root, roasted dandelion root/blackstrap molasses, sarsaparilla/yellow dock root, schizandra berries/stinging nettle, peppermint/wild plantain, reishi/cacao, etc., etc.

I have two friends who are both master herbalists/healing practitioners in various specialties who helped a great deal in recommending and guiding me through various blends, and they are who I get most of my herbs from that I can't find growing locally, as they tend to keep a nice inventory on hand to make their tinctures and such with. It's been a fun learning experience. Cheers!
Thanks @Knotions In Motion.
5 good things that happened to me today are:
1 I learned something new about red clover
2 It's Thanksgiving and I have the next 4 days off!!
3 I got my chocolate caramel tart ready for today
4 We're having a Field Roast for dinner
5 There are dogs in the house again.

karenlovessnow 1. It snowed! Well, sort of. It mixed with some sleet/freezing rain at times so it was wet and heavy. But still white.
2. It's Friday.
3. I worked shorter hours because of the snow.
4. I resisted junk food.
5. I made a big dent in my Christmas shopping.
11-16-2018 05:40 AM

5. My cat has been super snuggly
11-15-2018 05:46 PM
Tom 1) My insomnia hasn't been bothering me.
2) I fixed my home security system: one sensor failed, and the automatic dialer hasn't been working since the phone company started making everybody dial the area code to all numbers they call- even local ones.
3) I went to a family get-together celebrating my youngest nephew's marriage (last weekend- but I still feel good about that).
4) I'm inventing new recipes for my slow cooker.
5) After spending 2-3 weeks in my shell (sort of), I'm socializing more.
