Thankful Thursday

[An occasional exercise in gratitude.]

1) Getting things done at work.

2) Realized I was feeling a bit fuzzy-headed and tired everytime I took my SSRI.  Being able to notice this sort of thing is somewhat new. 

3) Successfully tapered down to a low dose without problems.  (Why? It’s been nearly two years since I started on them again, I wasn’t having symptoms, and seeing if it would get rid of the tired/fuzzy feeling.)

4) I am feeling less tired these days.  May also be due to Seattle getting more than 12 hours of daylight again, but good is good. :)

5) Feeling better about my parents and moving on.  Grief is a process and I seem to have moved to a less-fraught stage. 

6) Asthma meds. For breathing!!!

7) Coworkers who are patient as I learn new skills.

8) The man of the house, who improves my life in so many ways. 

What is good in your life today?

  1. 1) Went for my usual walk and realised that it was now easy. I will increase the distance next time. Plus it lashed rain today, but only when I’d got back to the house.

    2) Had coffee with a friend with who’d been away travelling for a couple of years. Was nervous that we’d grown apart despite email contact, but it was like she’d never been away and we got on like a successful bit of arson.

    3) Went through my to do list like grain through a goose, and actually got everything on it done (for once).

    Yay!

  2. Not only have I managed not to kill off my poor little blood orange tree that I’ve had for a year and change (seriously, I’ve killed cacti by not watering them enough; plants take one look at me, curl up and die), IT HAS FIVE BLOSSOMS!!! If I keep up at this rate, I may yet have delicious blood oranges one day. Plus I managed to unearth my copy of Rose Levy Beranbaum’s Pie and Pastry Bible, which has a recipe for blood orange curd. Can’t wait to try that out!

    Had to raise my fundraising goal for Relay for Life a second time, because I met it again. It feels good to raise money for a cause that matters to me. I lost three amazing people in my family to cancer, so I love working to save others who get the diagnosis.

    The neighbor kid mowed the lawn for us today, just for something to do. Have I mentioned lately that I have the best neighbors in the world? Because I do.

    In the past three weeks, I’ve gotten to see live performances by terrific local theater groups. I love live theater, and both shows were tremendously good.

    Sometimes, life is just gooood.
