Today I am grateful for ear plugs as I am going to vacuum the house and I really really hate the noise.

Just do the floors, it'll end quicker!

After the seemingly endless bickering in the forums lately, I saw something that gave me hope yesterday.  In of all places the pet peeves thread, I saw people who've been at odds with each other for a

Rhonda accepted a promise ring from me today. There's a long road ahead but we're taking it together, one day at a time.

I saw a video this morning of this delightful 103 year old lady named Jennie who kicked COVID's butt and celebrated with a Bud Light. I'm glad this feisty lady is still around to enjoy her favori

I am grateful for arnica gel and for the good friend in SL who recommended it. My aching right hand is still achy but on the "tolerable" end of the discomfort scale.  In these days of coronavirus and social unrest, I'm glad that sore joints are the worst things I have to complain about personally.

I am grateful for this man. Even though he made me cry this morning. 😐

 

 

Thank you for this, Scylla. Your contributions today on this matter have been thoroughly heart-warming. 🤗

Sorry I'm late here. Nobody ever told you the pillow trick?....When needing to cough, place a pillow over your wounded area and pull hard towards yourself...and cough! This usually a 'torso' trick so if your wound is elsewhere ...probably won't work. 

Yes, I've been using a pillow, as the incision is  down the centre, almost from breastbone to pubic bone, with a little jog around the belly button. It still hurts like hell, as does sneezing (allergies), and laughing. And standing. And sitting. And lying down. Well, coughing, sneezing, and laughing hurt like hell.  Standing, sitting, and lying down are just bloody uncomfortable.

Oddly, today I'm grateful for finding my blasted alarm clock which had somehow gone missing in a small apartment when I haven't gone anywhere. It is an odd thing to lose, and an odd thing to want, but I'm trying to get my sleep schedule back on track and that's a start.

I haven't owned a tv in about ten years and it hasn't been too bad because you can stream just about anything these days. ♥

Every Christmas I buy an interesting bottle of something alcoholic then forget about it, but I leaned into a corner of the kitchen and discovered Bailey's Chocolat Luxe, mostly unused.  So, while everyone is outside roasting I shall be in my interior dimness getting loose and cool while watching YouTube videos about all things Goth (its algorithm has gone oddly specific, and all I did was look up Die Fledermaus).

Anyway, cheers!

Glad for everything really :)

SL was the second online forum I ever became a member of. ☺️

I think being "glad to be here" constitutes legal cause for your immediate comittal to the nearest sanitorium! We should all just take ourselves there on the bus and make a party of it.

This just reminded me of the character Die Fledermaus in the 90s animated show "The Tick."  That was a great show, and Die Fledermaus was hilarious!

I have a fantastic friend in RL that I met in SL. He's been figuratively by my side for something like nine years. I love that he totally doesn't sugar coat things, like today about something he told me I was right about something, really right, but also stupid. I'll own that and having someone you can rely on for that stuff in your life is rare and precious.

I'm more grateful than ever for my Bellisserria houseboat home. I log in, turn the sun setting to midnight, watch the water rippling, and listen to the waves crashing and seagulls squawking. It's such a relaxing scene that I find myself immersed in it for minutes at a time.

I'm grateful to LL and all the SL creators who have made this experience possible.

I'm grateful for meditation, which helps my mind make a little sense out of what seems like a crazy world.

As frustrating as they can be, I'm grateful for Zoom, FaceTime, texting, emailing, and actually using the phone as a phone (gasp!) to speak to people, let them know I care, and stay connected.

I'm grateful for alcohol, weed, and other relaxants that help us cope.

I'm grateful for quarantining, because there's NO WAY I want anyone to see all the damn stress-eating weight I've put on 🙂

I love it when it rains in the front yard but not in the back yard. ;)

heh heh heh me too Selene; it's like walking under the edge of a cloud. This was intentional though - I love a rainy beach. In Honolulu it rains every morning for several hours, before burning off in the sun. "A few windward and mauka showers" is in the forecast every damn day, it means showers and mist on the east coast and central mountains of Oahu. This rainy beach is something like home :-)

I did try placing the rain emitter over the house too, but it insists that I have an invisible leaky roof. Hmmm, a nice wet living room? I tried placing it higher up in the sky, but the rainfall is "jagged" and stops at a variety of heights. So, rain on the beach it is.

The smell of newly wet earth, like today when the parched earth got wet for the first time in nearly a month.

Strawberry jam. Clotted cream........

Raindrops on Roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens...........

I'm glad that my $200+ order is finally moving in transit again after having been stationed in another country for nearly a month and a half. I thought about cancelling it several times but I knew I would have less to no lucky finding the items locally either, so finally my patience paid off.
