Anyone else having difficulty staying positive with the news about all the COVID mutations and that you can get infected by some of the mutations even if you had the first one or were vaccinated? We were talking recently about how we think the 1918 flu pandemic was the only other pandemic to infect such a high percentage of people in the entire world at the same time (except New Zealand!). At least this time there are better treatments and some vaccines.
For me this all means focusing on the little things that I am thankful for is even more important.
1. My husband and I make home repair decisions quickly and come to the same conclusion. The old shower door in the master bath started leaking. We concluded it wasn’t worth repairing or patching the problem and are working on getting a bid to template it.
2. I have loved to read since I was able to. My mom would take us on the bus to the library to pick out books. I do remember reading every horse story I could find - Black Beauty comes to mind. Still reading down the library. Thankful for the pleasure it brings and continued good eyesight.
3. We have been cooking at home during the most recent COVID surge in S Cal although I think there were sub sandwiches for lunch one day. We decide it was time to get upscale dinner take out on Wednesday night from one of our favorite restaurants that is still hanging on and it was a lovely treat.
4. I stopped by our clubhouse to check on the little free library contents and was so happy to see that it is being used. We had it moved to a more visible location and that seems to have worked. Restocked it.
5. Amazing what a few inquiries to the right people can accomplish. After listening for a year to the no progress reports about transferring administration of the club’s Facebook page I solved it in less than a day. Of course that means I am now the administrator until I can talk someone else into taking it on. Thankful I have good problem solving skills.
What are you thankful for in the last week?
