I swear to the Baby Nordstrom, that yesterday morning, on November 1st, Fall hit.

It was amazing.


Not hot.

Glorious and all that jazz.




So, all of that being said, I’m going to try something this month. Normally, this time of year, as we head towards THANKSGIVING (not yet Christmas), people start sharing what they are thankful for on Social Media. I tried to do it a few years ago, and failed horribly.

This morning, my friend Fran (someone I’ve known eleven million years) lead me on a path to a book about meditation. While trying this today, I tried to settle into a thought to shut my loud, bossy brain up. It was hard, but I realized that if I start with a thought, aka, Thankfulness, perhaps, I can transition this into a bloggity blog for the month.

If you know me at all, I’m not really the warm fuzzy type of person. In fact, each day, I have to try VERY VERY HARD not to verbally smack someone. But, I try, and that’s all that matters. Or so I believe.

So, here goes – my month of thanks.

Day 1.

I was very thankful yesterday that it wasn’t hot. So not hot that I actually finally packed up the sundresses and the shorts. Said SAYONARA to strappy dresses and white clothes. I rolled around in a pile of fleece. It was glorious. So, yesterday, Day 1, I was happy it didn’t feel like Dantes innermost ring of hell.


Day 2.

Prescription Pain Pills.

Yep, I said it. Today, I’m thankful for the little helpers that ease the never ending pain that is my ears. I am theoretically thankful that I have ears, but more truthfully, I’m thankful for the pain pills that allow me to not go all Van Gogh on the longest running “bilateral chronic something or other ear infection.”
