Thankful Thursday #17 - and we are off to visit family

By the time you read this we will be on the road headed to our Berkeley family for a visit with that wonderful son, DIL and granddaughter. I'm excited as I won't be able to make the drive again after foot surgery until late Nov. Will have to talk them into coming down for Labor Day or something.

Anyway, so much to be thankful for when I look for it.

1. I Facetimed my Berkeley family on Saturday evening and actually got to chat with my son and DIL which was very fun. Our granddaughter was having a sleepover at her other Grandma’s and her parents were sitting outside at a brewery having a rare date. My other fully vaccinated son and DIL are on a trip to Oaxaca for a much needed change of scenery and new experiences. We expect to see them when they get back. 

2. I got all my medical and dental appointments scheduled in May and June along with foot surgery scheduled for late June.

3. We had a nice visit with one of my Hubby’s very elderly aunts and his cousin who lives with her. They recently moved near us. With just us there it was a pleasant rather than stressful visit.

4. A friend is going to bring in our mail and any packages while we are gone. Another friend and fellow club member is going to get a task done for me while I am gone. A third friend found out her chemo is working and she has fewer and/or smaller lesions than when chemo started.


  1. Have fun on your visit and trip. Glad your summer plans are all coming together nicely.

  2. You have a lovely trip. Enjoy.

    God bless.

  3. I hope you have a wonderful trip. We just got back from Capitola camping and it was great. Just so nice to be on the road again.

  4. Enjoy the family time together!
