    1. Getting through the one box to take care of business.

    2. That I set the trash out last night so didn't miss the trashman when I slept in this morning.

    3. That I found another container of protein powder down in my tea box. Less to buy for now.

    4. The new information I am studying on reinforcing how refined sugars and wheat effects me.

    5. This weekend helped me get over the hump of regaining and the dreaded plateau. Starting to come back down.

    Saturday's five

    I'm grateful:
    -I got up and out the door for my walk. My knee is doing a little better. Knock wood.

    -after my walk and breakfast, I drove over to GO's to help her with the yard sale, if I could.

    -we sat with people coming and going. I think she did pretty good on sales. We warded off the rain by scowling at the sky whenever we'd get a few drops of rain on us.

    -I helped put things away, and she gave me some of the things that didn't sell, including some jewelry making tools, an electric pressure cooker. I'll decide if I want it, or if I prefer my old fashioned stove top one. Then, when I decide which I prefer, the other will go out to donation.

    -I'm doing laundry and running the dishwasher tonight because I want time to get everything in order before Monday morning so we'll have no hiccups when we leave to watch the eclipse.

    Friday's five

    I'm grateful:

    -I walked my 20 minutes and no rain.

    -I dropped off change to GO's so she would have it for tomorrow's yard sale.

    -Mum and I spent a lovely day together as usual. We were shopping for some Blue emu oil and asparagus pills for my mother. Neither were to be had anywhere we went, including a health food store. We ordered them on line.

    -I headed home and everywhere I drove there were troubles...the State Fair has started and I had to take an alternate route. Then, there was an accident with emergency vehicles blocking the secondary road. I finally got home and I then remembered Mercury is retrograde. Hate it when that happens. Glad to realize it, if it actually means anything.

    -I fixed shrimp, and odds and ends from the fridge to round out the meal. Leftover tomato salad. Yum.

    Thursday's five

    I'm grateful:

    -I got out and walked my 1.26 miles without any trouble. The wrap I'm using on the right knee seems to be helping for part of the day.

    -I piddled in the kitchen making a French tomato salad, Chinese Pepper Chicken, and rice,

    -I set my table with china and the silver-plate utensils and the crystal wine glasses. I chose a muted color tablecloth. Sometimes, with a pretty table, the food seems to taste better.

    -a big storm came up about an hour before our Third Thursday meeting started. But, it all dissipated before time for supper.

    -It was a nice meeting and our guest brought a Blue Dog Bakery baguette. Yum.

    1. I trimmed my cat's claws so cuddle time is less painful and she's no longer like Velcro on the blankets.

    2. That during my meditation my cat jumped on me and I noticed it but was able to stay in the moment. In the beginning that threw me out of meditation completely.

    3. That I feel really good this morning compared to yesterday after eating out the night prior. My new lifestyle here makes me have more energy.

    4. I was in a funk for about 4 days and that has now lifted.

    5. I have my assorted teas out and have easy access now.

      @Andia Lyric is so active I'd be afraid to trim her claws. Although being like Velcro on the blankets is a nuisance sometimes. lol

        @diamondlightfoot lol my girl doesn't like the experience but she does it without trying to claw or bite. She's a gentle soul actually.

          @Andia Lucky! If Lyric was a little calmer I might try it, but she even tries to escape from hugs. She's a rescue and the cats I had before were raised by me, so they were used to cuddling from the first. Evidently my Lyric didn't get much of that, but I try to make up for that now. My brother in law gets jealous because she won't give loves to anyone but me. He wants to pet her so badly and she's not having any of that. She'll be three tomorrow and she's still playing like a kitten, so that's a good thing.

    1. Going to dinner with a friend last night. We gabbed and stayed out far too late but was nice!

    2. Friend asking if I was using a new makeup due to I looked younger and my skin looks smoother, got to tell her this was a result of healthy eating and loads of water. Made me feel good!

    3. Sleeping in.

    4. Steamed vegetables and seafood so I still stayed pretty healthy.(minus the beer hah!)

    5. That my work phone did not ring when I was out. Huge relief!

    1. My lawn is freshly mowed and looks pretty

    2. Bright sunshine this morning

    3. Breathing through anger and learning to let it go. A circumstance of a really bad person, a user, a deceiver and a borderline sociopath was in my life. I had to lose a lot of money to get away and go into deep debt. I still am struggling with this but the anger is leaving. Mistrust of people is slowly easing. I am becoming happier. I worry at times this person will just show up at my house but that is subsiding too.

    4. My dog playing last night

    5. Yummy healthy dinner last night.
