Now that I am online again I can again join the Ten Things of Thankful community.
I am very glad that we are online again, and that all problems concerning our old and the new router could be resolved within days.
But I am also very glad that I am still able to spend more time offline without going nuts.
My husband jumped on the decluttering bandwagon as well. He pointed out some things we have to get rid off. It will not happen in the next weeks because of other urgent circumstances, but we will get to it eventually.
My parents are very happy that they get a big tax refund. I am happy I could help with that.
We went to the summer charity of our local shelter. We know many of the people, and it was fun to meet them.
We were complimented how well Janet and especially Sam are doing. That’s always good to hear, and we want our furry companions to be happy and have a good life.
A big part of the wood that we will burn in winter was delievered yesterday. It will be a lot of work until it is put away in the basement, but we will definitely be warm during the cold months.
When asked about the cutting scars on my arms today, I was able to give a funny, but true statement. In the past I always made excuses and said “It was the cats” or something else. But I decided to be honest about it, and this felt better.
It’s cherry time! We love to eat fresh cherries, but we can only have them for a few weeks every year.
The weather was very nice, not too hot, not too much rain either. Just perfect.
So I proudly join the TToT-community again. Let’s see what I can contribute:
Decluttering goes on. But hey, I finished decluttering my closet. It’s good to have some closure, even I am nowhere finished.
Everybody was so generous were birthday presents are concerned. I was able to replace some more old clothes.
Was asked for directions by an older woman. It’s important for me to have an open ear for other people despite my struggles. Even it is just about the way to the next supermarket.
My mother had some problems with her smartphone, and we sorted it out on the phone. I am so proud of my parents that they try to get used to something new, and I am happy I could help. My mother was so thankful, but it was no big issue, really.
The weather was nice – sunshine and rain in the right mix. I was able to show off my new dresses, and nature got what was needed as well.
I like egg liqueur, and I found out it can be added to strawberry shake as well! Yummy.
Got cheap blankets for the dogs. They are replacements for now, but it is good to have them.
Our “problem dog” made another step forward: He could play with other dogs without being on the leash. That’s a big improvement, at the beginning we had to use a muzzle and a leash when we met dogs he didn’t know.
My husband was on a fishing trip with his brother, my parents were in south Germany at the same time. I was able to hold it together without them for a few days, and they had a well deserved break. Win-win, I’d say.
Didn’t forget some important things, even my head can be a chaos sometimes. Hope this goes on.
