Good Week

ttot, gratitude blog

  1. A lollipop from my daughter she bought from her allowance debit card. It is her first purchase and she thought of me.
  2. My Fitbit and challenges I am in with my Fitbit friends encourage me to walk 10,000+ steps a day.
  3. The nice weather allows me to enjoy some time outside on my lunch break.
  4. My walking partner Velvet who is a dear to be with. She does not bark to other dogs and their people.
  5. Beautiful scenes like this birdhouses to be enjoyed while walking.
  6. My first ceramic plate in years I painted. What a stress reliever to paint this.
  7. Another painting, my only Denver Broncos cup.
  8. Daughter's love of painting gives us more reason to spend time together. Look at this box she painted.
  9. The home recipe to bathe poor Velvet who got sprayed by a skunk.
  10. Not pictured here is my son who got all A's but one B this summer semester in 12th grade.
This end of the week has been good. Today, perhaps, we'll even go to the mountains and take a hike.

    1. I've own dogs since I can remember and this is the first skunk spray. It was a big work getting the fouls smell out of Velvet.
      Well, my poodle, barks a lot too. Maybe it's a small dog kinda thing. They have to show the big dogs they are superior.

  6. You and your daughter are both very artistic! I think it's terribly sweet (no pun intended) that she bought you a lollipop as her first debit purchase. And good for your son to get those grades, especially in the summer!

Charity and The Garden of Gods

The alphabet this week is the letter C. What words inspire you to write? Today, I am thinking of:

CharityClimbCanChurchChoosingChangesChoiceCharity MilesChildContribution This statement from church sticks to my mind this week. God wants us to want what he wants.

Is that like I want my teens to want what I want not simply do what I say without putting their heart into it? You betcha.

I'd like them to do good for themselves, nourish, not harm--their brain, body, and soul. I'd like them to put focus in school and pick good friends. I'd like them to be, someday, self-sufficient, and be helpful members of the society.

God wants us to helps ourselves so we can be of help to others. God wants us to be generous. It's only last Saturday, that I was convinced I should give more to charity andchurch. The right time in my definition will never come as I would probably never be satisfied with my income and expenses. But God wants me to give to others. In my preference, it would be …

Forcing Myself to Express Gratitude

Hello. Hello. Here I am again this week. Back with a thankful post, I did not feel like writing.

My oldest child (18) surprised me with an old car he bought a few days ago--a Dodge Stratus 2003, sedan, with a sportsy look. Never mind the paint that needs to be redone. That is just cosmetics. But the windshield has cracks in two spots. In addition, the front tires are bald, and the first time he introduced it to me, it did not even start.

"Oh, I must have left a light on."

Maybe.

The car is operable again but I am still nervous. He was supposed to work today at 4 pm, I thought. At 3:45 pm, I got hold of him. He was about to drive from a park to home. He said he'd go home to change his shoes before work. Half an hour later, I could not concentrate. My head is hurting and I was almost certain he got into some kind of trouble.

He came home for a couple minutes. He seemed OK. He works at 4:30 pm, he said. I wished he would have told me earlier.

Communication. We need to talk…

Amazon Fresh Review

The letter of the week from ABC Wednesday is the letter A. For the lack of ideas, I am writing about the new (to me) grocery delivery service through  Amazon called Amazon Fresh. I promise I am not getting paid by Amazon for writing this post.

How timely is that that I have just received my first grocery today with Amazon Fresh. What did I order? See the picture below including five grocery items not included.




Here is a review based on my first try with Amazon Fresh Grocery Delivery by Amazon in Denver, Colorado.
Pros:

One advantage of using the service is the convenience. I ordered online without having to walk the isles of the store and standing in line waiting for the cashier. The groceries are delivered right to my front door--kinda like the Uber or Lyft for my groceries. This service can attract home-bound adults, busy folks, or some people with transportation issues, like, maybe college students who do not have a car. I am thinking I can do this to friends who are sick or old who…
