Thankful Thursday Sept 2nd

Welcome from the beginning of my year 72 - I'm happy to be alive and thankful for much.

Family - 

To start with, our local son & DIL came by for a visit which was lovely.

Our Berkeley family is happy to have us come up for Labor Day weekend now that we have to work around public school schedules for granddaughter time and since DIL has to work on Labor Day.

We went out last Thursday for a drive with great views of rugged parts of the Santa Monica mountains near the coast and then to a cafe for a yummy lunch outside.

Birthday Fun -

Friends invited me out to lunch to celebrate my birthday and have a good catch up.

Hubby asked me to pick where I wanted to go for a birthday dinner (or get take out from) and I picked the local brewery with great pizza and a nice roomy and safe outdoor space. Prosciutto and arugula pizza this time (also had artichokes, red onion, shaved mozzarella and melted cheese and some kind of yummy sauce).

The "Right" Stuff - 

Referring to belongings of course since in the process of returning 3 t-shirts ordered online that were not the colors I thought they were I found 2 that are perfect and were on sale for even less. I’m all set for warm weather.

Still finding what we want in our grocery stores for the most part. Only odd things missing like some spices.


  1. Happy Birthday!! May it be a great year filled with wonder,and adventure!

  2. Happy Birthday Juhli. Stay safe and have a wonderful new year.

  3. Another great list. Happy that you had the chance to spend time with friends and family for your birthday. Best wishes for your 72nd year of life!
