today, i am grateful for…

…getting up early, after a good night of sleep, and going for a walk, as the sun came up, with my friend’s, four-legged companion. a nice start to the day…

…cool weather…

…three cups of black coffee…

…a delicious, healthy breakfast, cooked by chef wendy…

…a day off from doing the dishes. thank you very much wendy…

…a whole, glorious day without “the crazy old man!!”…

…going on an exciting adventure with my friends, and four-legged friend. it was a beautiful day, only eighty degrees. we drove up to red rock canyon. we went hiking and i took lots of photos. where we went, there are wild burros, horses, deer, rattlesnakes, tarantulas, and giant-ass jackrabbits. there were mesquite trees, yucca, and lots of sage brush. i found a lot of cool rocks, that i am going to use, to begin my own rock garden, like my mother had. they were five small rocks, but all i could think about, was the lucille ball/desi arnaz movie,”the long, long trailer.” it made me giggle to myself. ethel and i, found tarantula holes, with web doors…jackrabbit poop…and, lots of dried mesquite wood. we tried to go further in, to hike more, but i “broke” the car when i tried to turn around, on a gravel incline. i was very thankful that “macgyver” wendy, stepped in with her “magical” duct tape and saved the day!! i am also very thankful that my friend’s dog, didn’t make it all the way out of the window, when he tried to jump. i had a much needed distraction of a good kind, got out, exercised, took photographs, and ended up at ikea. ethel, needed a new tube of smoked, creamed, fish roe…

…being able to stand, walk, and hike…without huffing and puffing…without effort…without exhausting myself. i led the pack today out into the wilds…i didn’t have to keep up with anyone…nobody had to wait for me. i went my own way, did my own thing, took photos, was happy, present, and loved the fact…that i fucking did it!! and quite honestly, i owe it all to myself and the one that cared enough about me and my poor health, to get me moving in the right direction…

…laughter, lots and lots of laughter…

peace and calm radiate from me. diet and exercise nurture my body. love and hope fuel my fire and keep me going.

namaste.
