Trace, thanks for the delayed game gratitude. I actually stayed awake long enough, to know that the darkside had lost! Quoth the Ravens, nevermore, 'til next year. Ok, Trace, Troy is the best, we can agree on that. Michelle, please forward the name of the book that helps you see your'e not crazy. My interest is purely academic, since it doesn't relate to my personality at all. ",flowers watered and smiled at" beautiful thought Taz. ????now why am I on this site??? oh yeah, anywhooooooo,

Today I am thankful for:

*all my buds on this site!!!!
*$$$, a few people decided to pay their bills, or part of them. Yeah $! I was at the point of putting on a sign that said will design your estate garden for food- ie. low fat, low calorie food.
*doing really well with my water. I have never been able to do this, but an app, and some encouragement from my buds is really working.
*doing Water aerobics yesterday- really hard work-out, and PT today- personal bests on the weight machines. I am especially thankful that my body / karma has held up long enough and is well enough to do some hard work- luvvvv it.
*an e-mail from my dear teacher. He is such a blessing to have in my life!
*off to the other great blessing in my life, before said blessing, opens a can of wup ass, instead of hash for arriving home so late.

take care, bob ps. that whole short posting resolution thang really lasted long.

Saw a great movie last night and loved it - the new Karate Kid!
Got to see a friend in the big city and enjoy fellowship of friendship and fun.
Got to try out a new sandwich at the new McD's in our interior town. This is a big deal for my boys!
Worked hard all day to take care of some big cleaning.
Grateful for a recent book passed my way that is helping me see I am not crazy after all. (I'd been wondering!)

-seeing TAZ in here this morning with her wonderful as ever list of gratitudes first thing this morning!
-this rainy morn melting the snow away for the next snow coming in!
-my dr. appt.! that I can go!
-the wonderful time my son had with his sweetheart yesterday,shopping together and making dinner for us all!
-the unexpected heartfelt thanks from my son for putting his cake together while he took his sweetie home, and decorating it for his Birthday; he just wanted to make the cake
-the memories of his birth morning, when I was supposed to meet with a representative to get our state law amended to allow nationwide relay service 2 years before the ADA federal law mandated it! And yelling at my hugs to call the rep and let him know I would not make it while Matt was pushing into this World!
-that a later visit with the representative ended in successfully getting that amendment in place during the January session nineteen years ago!
-my Snowy Purry Purdita who purrs so loud even this deafy can 'hear' her loud and clear!
-this new day to be all I can be, no matter what, where, who, when why or HOW!

* having a better idea where she is backpacking in Malawi

* zinc and vitamin C to squelch an oncoming cold

* an amazing morning helping prepare and serve breakfast to 100 homeless people yesterday

* as always, a life worth living, possibilities & freedom to choose.

Tonight, I come here once again to focus on gratitude and here are just a few reasons:

-Following our fearless leader and delighted to hear about all that's she done (amazing!)
-28-Day Bootcamp Challenge on track
-Awesome workout time today with my newest workout buddy! :-)
-All soreness from yesterday's physical labor at Habitat for Humanity now gone - partly by LOTS of stretching last night, the remainder from working out today (imagine, working out easing a muscle pain!)
-A true day of R&R, much needed, with the only strenuous activity being the workout
-Starting a new book (OK - Maha, I know you will want to know what it is - "Amy and Isabelle" by Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout

Have an excellent evening everybody!

* Classical music to soothe my spirit, and provide quiet meditative time
* Anticipation of having grandkids stay with us (for the FIRST TIME!) next week.

and it should be treated with honor.

Good morning Tazmomsgol, Maha, and all1

This morning I am thankful for lots of things!

* The pure exhilarating joy I experienced last night at old-time music played with passion, power, and skill.
* The beautiful sound of a room full of people singing together without hesitation.
* Friends who dance to, play and enjoy music.
* Arnica.

Namaste!
Kathleen

To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking. - A. DeMille

No matter what you’re feeling, the only way to get a difficult feeling to go away is simply to love yourself for it. If you think you’re stupid, then love yourself for feeling that way. It’s a paradox, but it works. To heal, you must be the first one to shine the light of compassion on any areas within you that you feel are unacceptab

Appreciation is the vessel for future blessings.
-- Michael Berg

Good morning! After almost 8 hours sleep I'm bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and here to give thanks~~

~ my resolve which turned into positive action to get out on the Trek over the last two days, since rain is coming in today

~ another .5 loss, a small but positive sign

~ intention to make this an indoor day that counts -- of study and cleaning, exercise (cardio DVD) and fun (watch Wag the Dog with Robert DeNiro and Dustin Hoffman)

~ meditation practice and a healthy brekkie next, plus my writing the final personal challenge blog

~ finding pathways thru the prison bureaucracy to purchase some beautifully-drawn cards from an inmate-friend last night

Blessed be!

Ah Bob - As you know, I was just funning ya!!! I TRULY did not have a car until I was 21 years old and bought it myself!!!

Tonight, sincere gratitude for all of this, yet so much more:

-An opportunity to work today at Habitat for Humanity, learning new skills (and killing myself doing it
-Learning how to install doorknobs and strike plates (but next time I'll take a drill, thank you very much - my hands are killing me!!!)
-Getting to see a friend of mine and working together today at Habitat (and her thanking me for getting her involved last summer)
-Now, the rest of my 3-day weekend is for R&R, except for
-28-Day Bootcamp Challenge daily strength training video DONE TWICE (including tricep lifts - a bit painful after today's work)!!
-Fresh, organic produce delivered to our door today, a day late due to 8 inches of snow this week!

Make it an excellent evening everybody!

Steph, at least you had a T-bird your daddy could take away. Back in the day, Daddy could only have taken away my '74 Pinto, which didn't make for a good song or a good ride. Taz thanks for the lychee fruit link!

Today I am thankful for:

*ok sleep last night, even if a bit short. Ok, for me is great, I didn't feel as tired as usual.
*a nice sunny day, so the guys could work and get some time in.
*great to get to leave the office early today, to go home and watch the game on the big screen.
*finding some great apps for tracking my health.
*Trace or me being really happy tonight after our team wins.

have a great rest of the weekend, bob

The smile that just came across me face as I am imagining all of us in a room together! Wouldn´t THAT be an amazing adventure?!
-- Tazmomsgol

Good morning! Facing the day a little fuzzy yet...and since I've switched to 100% decaf I can't look to the caffeine to *do the trick* but I'm not too bleary-eyed to give thanks~~

~ for this amazing community

~ for yoga class ahead

~ for my resolve to complete meditation practice and strength training before yoga

~ for an extraordinary coming-together with inmate friends last night

~ for the adventure of another prison gathering ahead this evening

Blessed be!

Hey Bob - Can't get in the groove since my daddy took the T-bird away - but glad you enjoyed the surf ...

Tonight, just a few things I'm grateful for:

-Warmer temps (thank goodness, because I opted to spend one of my holiday weekend days working on a Habitat for Humanity Woman build home)
-AWESOME celebratory dinner with my partner tonight (she was SO excited as it's the first time she's been out for many, many days)
-In-home physical therapist is planning on releasing Beth next week, with orders for Mid-America Rehab, nearby and paid for 100% (she's doing better every day and did 8 minutes on the recumbent bike TWICE today - this is major for her!)
-Excellent productivity today at work with lots of deadlines met AND exceeded
-Tickets for Ruthie Foster concert purchased and printed for next week
-Balance in life's endeavors, with music being a MUST!!!

Goodnight all ... have sweet dreams!

Stephanie

Trace, sorry I shaved my beard or you could get your fur-fix with the big guy! Taz, I am ready to leave for Brazil, for the get together, if you have room in the room. Sandra Nermal’s, name ain’t Normal!

Today I am thankful for:

*the bizarre feeling of walking out in the snow and ice yesterday, and turning my iphone on to the tune of Everybody’s Gone Surfin’, by the Beach Boyies. I grooved on the weird combo vibes of surf and frozen turf for a bit, then my Engineering brain took over and pointed out that you slide / glide in both, so it’s not too crazy. Bummer; but I quickly regrouped and hung 10 as I went down the path to my truck- Surf’s up!
*a visit to the shoulder PT, who does soft tissue and chiropractic. I lost touch with him after the torn Retina last year, and my shoulder has been worse. He’s great!
*getting enough $ in yesterday to more than cover the payroll. The last two pay periods have been a tad on the stressed out of my mind side.
*the heat wave today!!! We’re over freezing in the steamy south!
*Natacha Atlas, who is a Belgian singer known for her fusion of Arabic and Western electronic music. Her father was of Moroccan, Egyptian heritage. Great music, though I sometimes have to worn the employees that I am not killing a cat upstairs, but listening to music. Well there is that other thing. For some reason, me dressing up in a belly dancing outfit, with finger symbols and dancing around the office strikes them as a bit odd, and scary. Why???

have a great weekend! bob
