Day 58

Saturday has become my favorite day of the week. Yes, I'm home all the time but on Saturday I can sleep in and do what I want. Work has been becoming a bit much. Sitting with a camera on constantly takes a toll. Anyway...back to Saturdays. A full day of just being me. Hanging out with Jerry and Nutmeg. It's the best! So that's my official grateful thing for today. ☺️

Day 57

I'm not feeling happy today. I just want to sleep. So today I'm grateful that my partner supports my decision to head to bed at 7pm. I sad a nap but it will probably be all night. 

Day 56

I'm grateful for fish and tater tots!! One of my favorite quick meals. I'm that kid that loved fish sticks, so this is right up my alley. 

Day 55

Hmmm....grateful...grateful...so much to be grateful for but specifically today?  My life. I'm not talking about the heart beating, blood rushing through vessels, breathing kind of life, I'm talking about my past experiences. I have had so many. Today someone on TikTok posted a "Tell me you were in marching band, with out telling me you were in marching band..." Of course I did a duet. It got me thinking about all the wonderful people and experiences that I had just because I was in Marching band. In high school we travelled to Disney World. In college...well....SO many experiences. I wouldn't trade those memories and experiences at all. Even the hard/rough/sad ones.  So yeah, I'm grateful for marching band and all it's done in shaping the person that I am.   

Day 52, 53, & 54

Day 52: I'm grateful that I can sleep in until noon. No judgement from Jerry, just peaceful sleep. Day 53: I'm grateful for yummy Everything Bagel seasoning. A new discovery for me and so young on eggs, chicken...Can't wait to try it other places. Day 54: I'm grateful I'm still working from home. I'm feeling anxious about COVID right now. More people I know are getting sick. I was feeling pretty lucky that it was away from my bubbles of people. Also, in having insomnia as I post at 3am... So getting up at the last minute to work is a bonus!!

Day 51

This morning was lazy and wonderful. Jerry went and got a haircut, double masked of course. Then he wanted to try a reverse omelette that he has seen on TikTok. So after he made his and having a taste, I made my own. I mentioned the veggies from local farms, I forgot to say we also get our eggs. Getting eggs delivered each week has been the best. The pandemic has been hard and Local Fare Jax has been a blessing. I'm grateful for the fresh goodies we get each week. 

Day 50

Today I'm grateful for potato salad. Really?? Potato salad?  Yes. Jerry makes some amazing potato salad and we have been fortunate to find a local farm co-op that delivers to our porch. So the produce is fresh and yummy! jerry uses red potatoes in his recipe and we have plenty right now. Olso while really I'm grateful for our farm to porch service, without them...I couldn't have Jerry's super yummy potato salad. 

Day 47, 48, & 49

Way to drop the ball there Jeanne! Day 47 I dont even remember what was going on. I guess that is kind of a blessing, it means nothing bad happened. Right? Day 48 Jerry's birthday!! He is two years older than me. Not really but the math works out until March. I'm grateful to be able to laugh and kid around with such a funny husband. He had a rough day with work but over all he said it was a good day.  Day 49 Weird day at work. A few of my meetings for virtual classes were cancelled so it was a lot of waiting around for the student to contact me or wait for the next class. I am doing an online course though the district and I was able to knock out a few of the "courses". So I'm grateful for the time to develop my professional skills.  Alright..whew...caught up. Maybe I need to tie a sting around my finger to remind me to post. 😏

Day 45 & 46

Day 45  Happy Valentine's day! Today I'm thankful nfor a husband who is also my best friend and partner. I can't imagine a day without him. Day 46 Happy President's day. Our district was closed today so I go to rest and relax. Did some gaming. Had a lunch that takes longer than a work day lunch period. It was nice. I'm grateful for holidays. 

Day 44

We are really trying to stay safe and COVID-19 free. We only go out for doctor appointments, and work. Work is rare though as we both work from home. Jerry has to go in from time to time and I usually have to go in to sign my time sheets. So today I'm thankful for grocery delivery. We use both Instacart and Shipt. Depends on the store. 

Day 42 & 43

Day 42 I'm grateful for food delivery services. I didn't feel like cooking so, we had La Nopalera for dinner and it was yummy. Day 43 I ordered another bird feeder to add to our collection. We are really enjoying watching the birds and squirrels compete for peanuts. I didn't know Bluejays liked peanuts. So I'm thankful we found this new little hobby to keep us entertained. 

Day 41

Today I'm grateful.for....ya know...this is tough today. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of good I'm my life but today I feel off. ... And I feel that it's okay to not be okay from time to time.  it's spaghetti night.... So I'm thankful for yummy pasta. There....see.... Did it!

Day 40

Today I'm grateful for quick and tasty recipes. it's Taco Tuesday so I made taco soup.with ground pork, diced onions,  a can of fire roasted tomatoes, a can of corn, a can of black beans,  and a packet of gluten free taco seasoning. After browning the meat, you add everything and heat. I also added a can full of water. 

Day 39

I got new dining chairs today. They are half way unpacked because we are both working and don't have the time right now. So today I'm grateful for new chairs. Our current ones are tattered and torn. I'm hoping to keep Nutmeg 🐈 from scratching on them.

Day 38

Today is Superbowl Sunday. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Last year was super weird so while I'm sure we will watch some it, I don't have any high expectations.  So....what am I grateful for today. Our Sunday routine. Today is the day we usually do laundry and any other chores around the house. Is it mundane, sure. It's also very comforting to know what the plan for the day is. So.... Laundry day, yay!! 🎉

Day 37

Lazy Saturdays with Jerry are my favorite. He cracks me up!  Today, I'm grateful for a marriage that is a partnership. I'm super lucky as he takes really good care of me. He is by far the caretaker in this couple. Yes, I take care of things but he does those little things. I have a problem with my fingers cracking lately so he makes sure that things are "paper cut free". Seriously, I can get a cut from folding laundry.   Did I mention, he is super funny too!?!

Day 36

Today I found out that my uncle died of COVID. He had dementia and I know that was really hard on him but apparently he got covid in January and declined after that. I'm super sad. I am grateful though that my aunt was able to tell me through Facebook Messenger. I know a lot of people are like.... Why would you be grateful for getting a message through Facebook about your uncle dying? She didn't have my phone number so this was the only way she could let me know so.... Today I'm grateful for Facebook Messenger.

Day 34 & 35

Day 34 I'm thankful for naps. Those after work, I can't keep my eyes open naps that let you function. Day 35 I'm grateful to have a job that gives me sick time to use when I have doctor appointments. Even though I hate having my eyes dialated I enjoyed having the day off to let my eyes rest. 

Day 33

My posts didn't publish yesterday. So double posts today. Annoying, right?!? It's okay though, things happen. I'm learning to be okay with things not always going my way. It's a tough pill to swallow at times.  Last night we had rice with vermicelli. It was pretty good but when I looked at the label I noticed it had wheat in it. I have been gluten free for years now. I made up my mind that if I don't feel well that it will be okay, and I'll get through it instead of dwelling on it. I took some Benadryl last night before bed and am feeling okay today. So I am thankful for Benadryl. That's right! Scientist have come up with a way to reduce histamine in a body through a tiny pink pill. GO SCIENCE!!

Day 31 & 32

Day 31 I'm grateful for lazy days. I didn't get out of bed until 11:30 and then spent the day watching TikTok videos with Jerry. We laughed a lot! Day 32 I had to get up and go today. Jerry's car wasn't holding a charge. So just like my car, we took it in for some TLC and a new battery. I'm grateful that we are able to financially afford to keep our cars running well.
