Thankful Thursday #7 - Frig repair, Maritime Museum, Valentines

Let's start of with a big one. 

We get our first COVID vaccine shots this morning as do 2 of my close local friends and their husbands!  

Hard to top that but here are a few more.

1. Yeah. The appliance repair man knew immediately why our frig is making a rattling sound, ordered the part and will be back as soon as it is in. The shower door replacement is ordered. We have made it through the pandemic until now with nothing requiring a service call. I’m thankful our reliable workers are still working.

2. We had a lovely presentation at our club Zoom meeting about the Channel Islands Maritime Museum. We have been there twice but hadn’t looked into their pandemic virtual programs. Will do so now.

3. I got Valentines from three of my cousins and it really lifted my spirits.

4. This sunrise on Valentine's Day that I just happened to catch as I started my computer. 


  1. Hurray for your first shot!!!! It feels like Christmas/Hanukkah when you're 8 years old( well it did for me:)

    1. Getting the appointment sure felt that way. Today was just a long line due to some sort of paperwork snafu at the start of their day. Glad to have it and the appointment for the 2nd!

  2. What great things to be thankful for.

    Today I am thankful that Harvey managed to get his truck started. Hopefully it starts again tomorrow.

    God bless.

  3. SO happy to hear your vaccine news! I was also happy this week to hear that the hubs' mom got her second dose. YAY!

  4. I felt an immense sense of gratitude when I got my first shot, too. Although the vaccine rollout might not be perfect, how wonderful it is to have scientists and medical wizards who continue to make our lives better and safer! Sorry you had a frig repair. We got a new frig and range a few years ago, and I can't even count the number of times the repairman has worked on our icemaker. On the other hand, we have a 90s frig that works like a charm. Go figure. As long as we have at least one that works, we're blessed! Have a good weekend!

  5. Thankful for all the research and medical professionals who made this vaccine possible and as quickly as they did. Will get my second shot in a week.
