Today I Appreciate….

  • Electricity – I don’t normally pay attention to the electricity in our house… That is until it goes out…..

Last night sitting at the computer the lights started to dim… the computer went out… Then everything started to do a dance – on ~ off ~ on ~ dim ~ off ~ on ~ dim ~ dimmer… The house was black – well almost black as there was a light here or there was a very low dim…

I made my way to the kitchen to get the flashlight and then proceeded to unplug the computers. Even though we have surge protectors – I thought it would be better to unplug rather than have this low voltage going through them. I plugged in the corded phone and reported the outage… then went to bed – not much more I could do in the dark!

I woke several times early this morning and saw the electricity was on .. then off again…  😯      A little later it came back on…. It’s been on ever since – so I guess we are AOK now.

So today I do indeed appreciate the electricity that runs through my house – the people who went out in the rain last night to restore it – and the comforts of a house with electricity!  🙂

I appreciate this entire week of elevators appearing right next to me sometimes before I’ve even pushed the button to call it.

I appreciate all the delicious daydreaming & investigating I’ve been doing around our big trip next week.

I appreciate how things always work out for me – I know, just as I know my own name, that this trip to the Bahamas is going to be spectacular and that we are going to have loads of fun together…. we’ve even found that separately we were both looking into the same activities.

I appreciate the wonderful young woman working at The Walking Company who knew just the arch supports I needed and now my feet are smiling

I just love and appreciate having happy feet!

I appreciate Coryelle and the beautiful gift certificate she made for us to give the couple who will be keeping one of our dogs while we’re away.

And yes, I appreciate all the people who are coming together in various ways to make sure that all of our animals are well taken care of while we’re on vacation.

ahh so many cooperative components…I appreciate them all along with the awareness that on my own I would never have come up with such a perfect set of arrangements.
