Thankful Saturday

I’m thankful for sourdough. Slowing down and thinking about baking is helping me work through my COVID-19 anxiety. I’m exploring and trying new things. I’m also sharing my starter with anyone who wants to try their hand at sourdough.

I’m thankful for internet friends. I love reading your blogs, chatting with you in comments, and Skype and Zoom calls. I’m going to host a Skype call next Saturday at 7:30 CST. Let me know if you would like to join the call. I’ll do a morning call again soon, which will hopefully work better for the people who are asleep at that time.

I’m thankful for walking meditation. When I can get my daily meditation (OK, daily is the goal, I’m not there yet) and my daily walk in at the same time I feel like I’m really accomplishing things.

I’m thankful for a dog that herds me to bed when it’s time to put down the knitting and get some sleep.

What are you thankful for this week?

I am thankful that my husband has been so patient with me this week. i was typically ok then would get hyper focused one thing and be consumed for an hour or so .( Looking for the name of the person who I spoke to about health insurance……I know I put it somewhere. After an hour I found it) Stuff like that happened all week.

I’m thankful my friend Mike who had the virus is finally feeling better, I’m thankful for the glorious weather we’ve had this week that’s enabled me to spend so much time in the garden and I too am thankful for the friends I’ve made in Blogville and friends from back home I’ve been having calls with.

  3. I am thankful for the time at home. The pandemic isn’t a great reason to be at home but I have relearn my love of home. I am thankful for the many distractions I have like my knitting, Netflix, blogs, games on my phone… when things get too intense. I am thankful that everyone’s changing moods and concerns happen at different times so we can life each other up. Thank you for reminding us that we must remember to be thankful:)

  4. I am thankful to be able to stay home and be safe. I am thankful that I have family and friends I can stay in touch with electronically, even although we can’t meet face to face. I am thankful that I have so many things I can do at home to keep me occupied, and that I even have a home to live in and enough food to eat.
    It was good to meet you today. I should be able to make 7.30 pm your time next Saturday. 🙂

  5. I am thankful for a warm house, food, the garden and the ability to keep teaching this spring. That’s the basics, but also this week I am especially thankful for new life and the distraction of sweet baby ducks and for ibuprofen and heating pads. I strained my back last weekend, and those two items allowed me to self treat.

      1. I am nearly there. I will start walking again today, but no calisthenics or lifting for some weeks yet, just to be safe. The little girls are just a delight every time I go in and watch them!

  6. I’m so thankful for the puppies I got just before all hell broke loose. They keep me grounded, they keep me walking (even in the rain), they remind me of little ones that don’t know about viruses and just need food and love.

  8. I do wish I could get an email when you post, I’m so behind!
    I’m thankful for sourdough too. I love looking after something ‘live’ that takes so very little effort and gives us yummy food.
    Also thankful for Blogville and Zoom and WhatsApp and Facebook and all the other ways I’m keeping in touch with people from home.
