      1. I agree! BTW: your last post was great, I just have a hard time processing these quickly changing but life-altering events and then putting my thoughts into a neat understandable ‘comment.’

  2. I have a few of the same except change number 1 to coffee this morning and the anticipation of a good day. And I am good friends with my ball point pen, heavy and old fashioned. No errands today running but if done by 11 am and out of the gym, I am good. Enjoy your day.

  3. Wonderful list. I had to replace our air conditioner a few weeks ago. So grateful to have a fully functioning air conditioning system now.
    I’ve never had tea with milk—will have to try it.

  4. LA,
    Nothing like being seated right away at your favorite restaurant and then seeing long lines of waiting people as you’re leaving! This list is a wonderful way to show and experience gratitude! By the way, I’ve always wanted to try a crepe cake! A souffle, too. Who knows, maybe it’ll happen this year. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€ Mona
