Day 22

Today... err... Friday, I was thankful for my Kindle Fire. I am the type of person that likes books made out of paper and ink. But, I got my Kindle Fire for ease of travel and because I'd always wanted one for use on a treadmill. By sheer dumb luck I ended up with a treadmill, too. The treadmill I got has a plug and speaker built into it. So, I'm able to plug my Kindle into the treadmill itself and have the sound blast out at me. Good thing, too, 'cuz my headphones are going out on me and I hate earbuds. Anyway, I'm able to watch my Netflix on my Kindle, so I can watch a show and walk/jog at the same time. It's a nice distraction.

Um... I'm pretty sure ya'll know what a Kindle looks like, so I'm just going to not put a photo here.

Day 23

Saturday I was/am thankful fo my cousin Olivia. She's 2 years older than I am, but we grew up pretty close. Lately she's been the one to take me to church and encourage my spiritual growth. We always have fun and laugh constantly whenever we get together. We're goofy and odd. Intellectual and humorous. Sometimes it feels like she's my only friend here.

We were engaged in some sort of coffee related shenanigans at some point.

Day 24

Today, now that I'm caught up, I'm thankful for 1960's & 1970's rock'n'roll. That's my main music genre of choice. My YouTube playlist is off the chain:
Fleetwood Mac
Bob Seger
The Zombies
The Faces
Buffalo Springfield
King Harvest
Looking Glass
Electric Light Orchestra
Manfred Mann's Earth Band
Procol Harum
Kenny Rogers & The First Edition
Bob Dylan
The Who
Pink Floyd
The Doors
Van Morrison

And LOTS of:
Led Zeppelin
Neil Young
Jimi Hendrix


The only thing cooler than Jimi Hendrix is Bill Murray dressed as Jimi Hendrix.

    I was very much, and am to some degree still, in the same camp regarding a love for paper books. I made a switch two years ago though to an e-reader, for convenience and the ability to have a library of books at my immediate disposal, and never looked back. I still read the odd paper back novel, but it's few and far apart.

    Great things to be thankful for! The pictures of Olivia are awesome, as is Bil Murray as Jimi Hendrix! Sounds like you've got a sweet set up with your treadmill and Kindle. I ran on the treadmill at the gym yesterday...I'm a little scared of how the race is gonna in a couple weeks! ;)

    Haha! That picture at the end is amazing! I'm glad you have someone close by who supports you the way Olivia does. Kelly is my Olivia. :-) I'm always a little envious of people who grew up around extended family. I'm not close with mine. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Thanks for sharing this! ♡♡♡
