Greetings from the homeland after the holiday. Today, day 2 of the post Thanksgiving, thanksgiving weekend blog hop. It’s TToT time.
First up! Thanks to our estimable Hostess Lizzi, can’t hold you down, Rogers. For turning me onto Van Morrison’s rendition of (no, it’s not Mick Jagger), It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue. Thank you Lizzi for sharing your “go to” song:)
Second! Smooth driving going to and returning from Florida. I left later than planned on both journeys but traffic was amenable just the same. The cops pulled over plenty of people. But not me.
Third! Finding that time has not eroded aspects of my relationship with Man. Absence doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder. Sometimes it shores it.
Fourth! Said Man providing me with foodstuffs I do not ordinarily eat. Many cinnamon buns and potato chips and dip and cookies and M&M’s and coconut cream pie! I’m one of those who welcomes the extra, holiday pounds. I broke 110lbs! Yippee!
Fifth! This should have been at the top of the list. I’m extremely thankful for a safe, uneventful trip. I was witness to a couple of car accidents in both directions. (sure, this really is part of #1 however, I got a free pass from the 7 GVs to make it a stand alone. see Rule 1122, Sub. Para. 29 in the Book)
Sixth! I’m actually thankful for not developing anxiety attacks over not having convenient access to the internet while I was away. Which is to say no access. I trust everyone is well. I look forward to catching up.
7th! Weather. Good weather. For driving. Can’t say I had the best weather while in Florida but it wasn’t hateful. I’m thankful that there was one good, sit on the beach day. That was Monday. Thursday was a beautiful, chilly day and the afternoon walk on the almost deserted beach was gorgeous and wonderful and rejuvenating. It was the best day.
8th! the Wakfield Doctrine. For providing a tool for my “self” journey. In the receding wake of not so good life circumstances, after arriving on the shore of a new beach, it has been invaluable. I was able to travel from this, my new TimeLine, to my (threads still attached) former TimeLine. The one where my other half still resides. In spite of it being a Tholian Web, I found that who I am here traveled freely and did not get “sewn in” by who I was there.
9th! Dogs. They are wonderful and giving.
10th!! Another day.
[Apparently this really will be Blank Space.]
