My Immune System ROCKS!

Oh no! I'm a day behind on giving thanks! But that's ok because I'm extra thankful for my health...

Days 3 & 4 of Thanks: Good Health

[Please insert barfing noise here]

Believe it or not, I'm blessed to be a relatively healthy person. Lots of friends and family of mine get sick fairly often with colds, the flu, extreme fatigue, have asthma and are on medicines for almost every ailment under the sun. The only pills I take every day (if I remember) are vitamin C tablets and a multivitamin. I recover quickly when I can feel sickness coming on and when I get colds and I am ever so thankful for that!

Thank you immune system for working hard for me!!

Thank Goodness

Thursday is Thanksgiving!!!! Can you believe it?

The holiday season is upon us and the year has flown by! Fortunately, I have my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree all set up in my room and some spiced wine to welcome the jolly season! I've decided that until the holiday of thanks arrives officially, I'm going to blog about things I'm grateful for being in my life.

Day 1 of Thanks: Elphaba Lincoln McGruff III, Esquire.

Yes, my dog. She's a silly little pup with short, stubby legs, but I have learned some lessons from the little rascal. Every morning, she's always very excited to be alive and to go outside and play or bark at chipmunks. She's always happy and is determined to get the people who wouldn't pet her yesterday to pet her today. And when I've had a rough day at work, who is always waiting for me with a wagging tail? Elphie! She reminds me to be hopeful, be silly, bark when the leaves roll by, and enjoy sunbathing. I am ever so thankful for my little pup!

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Can you believe it's November 5th in St. Louis, MO? Me neither...

The last two weeks of October had dreadful weather, but November is shaping up splendidly.

Despite the alluring weather, don't forget it's Guy Fawkes day!:

Remember, remember the 5th of November, the gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot...
