Gratitude 2019wk13

Sunday: It was a gorgeous day outside! We did some yard work and filled up the herb planters with soil for spring. It’s happening!

Monday: I practiced yoga and it honestly felt good.

Tuesday: I get to have a job that lets me puzzle out stuff like this:

(there’s nothing proprietary here)

It’s a piece of a Crystal Report I’m writing. I didn’t need the final if/then statement. And I ended up rewriting the whole thing anyway to include another arithmetic operation. I LOVE THIS STUFF.

Wednesday: Dinner with Mom, as we’ve been doing (with reasonable success) for at least 15 years now.

Thursday: I accidentally overwrote the Crystal Report I was super proud of on Tuesday and it couldn’t be retrieved from backup because I didn’t log out of my computer on Tuesday or Wednesday (long story, but my own fault nonetheless). Pride goeth before a fall, etc etc.

But that snippet I put up there ^^ not only helped me rewrite it, but I actually did a better job the second time around.

Friday: DAY. OFF. We built a raised garden bed, which warrants its own post.

It gets no better.

Saturday: It was sunny and 76 degrees and so good for my soul. I dragged my chair out and read while Murphy played.

Sunday: Dinner with one of my oldest friends from Middle School. No matter how many years go by, we always pick right up like there was never an interruption.

Monday: I applied to give a talk to a tiny conference I attend each December. I gave one in 2017 with a coworker. This time it’ll be me, on my own. When the call for applications came out, I wasn’t going to do it, but that (now-former) coworker poked me that I should. And then an outline slowly gained shape in my head….

I feel like Holmes is garnering a LOT of hate because she broke the grifting glass ceiling for women, but I promise I dislike her only as much as I’d dislike a dude who did the same thing.

…and I applied. I’ll find out in April or May, I think.

Tuesday: Ollie scampered down the hall, taking us all by surprise because he’s a pretty slow, laid back old man these days. But he was happy and felt good.

Wednesday: IT’S SPRING, BABYYYYYYYYYYYYY! I’d like to believe I had a better attitude about winter this year.

Thursday: I am grateful that my dentist isn’t charging me for treating the infection that manifested itself in my gum right next to my dental implant.

I gave blood on Tuesday for the first time since my tooth was fixed.

Friday: The end of the week. TNP has an annual conference, and the 3 weeks preceding that conference are pretty high-tension. The conference starts Sunday and after everyone returns our work cycle relaxes through summer.

Saturday: We had a great 3-mile walk. I finished The Secret Life of Violet Grant.

Sunday: A lovely family gathering for Nephew B’s first birthday!

Monday: Um. Um. It’s been a day. How about that Entenmann’s cake that I drowned my bad day in? Gotta love a good Entenmann’s cake.

Tuesday: Grateful that Murphy didn’t get sick from the 2/9ths of leftover Entenmann’s cake that he pulled off of the table and snarfled. That dog.

Wednesday: Spent time with Nephews A and B. A is great at imaginative play. B is a great smiler.

” i had some cake and was ok can i have some pi too?”

Thursday: It was 70 degrees! I walked to the train after work. People were greeting each other outside like they hadn’t seen each other for ages!

Friday: The massacre in Christchurch leaves us all breathless. How can I blog about what I’m grateful for when there are such hateful assholes out there? No cake can make me feel better.

Saturday: My little seedlings continue to grow! Two weeks after planting, I have both varieties of tomatoes, both varieties of peppers, dill, basil, and impatiens.
