Grateful Day

3 Comments

The Magic in the Everyday blog posted a gratitude list. I haven’t shared one in a while. I have shared anything in a while. It’s past time.

Some things I’m grateful for on this day:

1. My rolling home and my nomadic life.

2. I have new house batteries. It was way past time.

3. The front AC is supposed to be replaced today.

4. I am alive and the people I love are alive. All but one. I lost a friend a few days ago. I never met her in person but we were long time friends.

5. I eat a lot of fruit. I am grateful it is available and not too expensive. I’m grateful that I have food and clean water. So many do not.

6. I am grateful for good health and the ability to get out and have adventures.

Raccoon Prints?

Some creature tried to climb on the car.

My guess is raccoon.

Spider Webs
There were hundreds of these little webs stretched along one side of the path. They ranged from playing card to football size. Kind of creepy.

This is from a similar display of webs. Hundreds of these webs decorated fifty feet of the chain link fence that protects the private piers. They ranged in size from this little one to quite large.

I need to revisit these two areas with a wide angle lens.

Spider Web
This is one of the large webs. This was easily three feet across. It is not all in the photo. This was attached to the pier and was horizontal over the water.

It is a beautiful morning here. The sun is spreading it’s beautiful light across the landscape. Children ride their bicycles up and down the lane. It’s a quiet morning. Contentment seems to fill the air.

1.  What other people think

There were times in my life when I cared deeply about what others thought of me. Sometimes I cared what they thought of things. The pain that caused me was a great teacher. As time passed I cared less and about what others’ thought. I listen. I hear. I will talk about it. I was once described as a man who really cared, but didn’t care. Like a lot of things, I too am a paradox. Not being overly concerned about what others may think or say about me or about events or things has brought a lot of peace and happiness into my realm.

2.  I love my life

I have shaped a life I love, one in which I can thrive. I know it will change but for now it rocks!

3. Gratitude Helps and Heals

@Zeal4living recently wrote about gratitude. Starting each day being grateful helps me be happy. Today I am thankful for my rolling home, my nomadic life, and flexibility of mind and spirit to be able to live this way.

Much love to you.

Share your joy. Tell use something that made you happy this week.

I Went Riding

This morning I was happy to enjoy a couple of hours trail riding with these two awesome humans and three cool horses. It has been a couple of years since my last ride and this was an excellent time spent on horseback with friends.

3. I am active and in pretty good physical shape.
4. I feel free.
5. I don’t need permission.
6. I have sufficient income.

This is a fun life experiment involving short videos and the Diptic app.

There may be more to come. I’m not sure yet.

Peace and love!
