Ten Things of Thankful
- Got two things crossed off that have been on my to-do list for way too long. Of course, it is a never ending list but still feels good to take something off before putting something new on it and I am thankful.
- New sofa and bed delivered. The bed is in the guest room and will be a cozy nest when I have overnight visitors. The sofa is so comfortable. The catkids and I are enjoying it.
- Because the old sofa was not in bad shape I was able to give it to someone who needed a sofa.
- Had a text from someone I used to work with. We are going to get together for lunch or supper sometime this month. Friends are great blessings.
- I know how to make a decent meal and have enough to share.
- I have money to pay bills and a little left over for fun. Cannot express how wonderful that is.
- I spent an hour or so straightening up the library downstairs. Someone had put a box of books on the table that needed to have a home and some old books that needed to find a new home. The new are all shelved and the old ready to go to the public library for the Spring sale.
- I am loving the unrushed unscripted days I have now that are on my time-table. No more need to set the alarm or too little sleep for this night owl.
- I have a home that is perfect for me. It is a quiet sanctuary where I am safe and happy.
- Looking forward to next week no matter what it brings with it. It is with a sense of wonder I write that. All is well with my soul!

Ticking things off a to-do list is always satisfying for me. And how nice you could give your old sofa to someone who needed it 🙂
That old to-do list is a bother and it feels so good to get something…anything off of it.
Oh my who is the beautiful orange kitty… I think they are my favs… I just bought a sofa a little while back and donated mine too… Its great to snuggle up on.
I like orange cats, too. But then I haven’t met a cat I didn’t like. 🙂
Love the sense of peace and contentment that runs through your posts, Patricia. And your number 10 is the best thing I’ve read all day. Being excited about the future, no matter what it holds, is a great mindset.
Thank you, Lisa. There are times peace seems elusive but it is always within reach. I think getting older helps keep tomorrow in perspective.
Ah, don’t you love it! You are doing and enjoying things YOU like to do.
Yes, it is wonderful. There are people that think because you are retired you have nothing to do, though. I have had a few calls that make me wonder who these people called before they knew I was retired.
The part about not getting up if you don’t want to, not having to rush around is a blessing, indeed and one I also share. The tree flower background is a nice harbinger of spring.
I am a night owl extraordinaire and not having to get up early is wonderful. The tree is in my neighborhood. I pass by it most days.
Lovely to read about how you are finding life – I certainly agree that taking the foot off the gas peddle of 9-5 (and beyond) work is wonderful 🙂 Stopping by on the Celebrate blog hop – have a wonderful week – Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace
I have worked since I was 17 and thought maybe I would be bored not working but that has not been the case. I am enjoying my days. Thanks for visiting.
You’ve painted a picture of peace. Lovely.
Thank you, Anne.
Having enough for yourself with something left to share….what more can we ask?! Enjoyed your list.
It is wonderful to be able to share. Makes life happy.
Books to read and food to eat are the best there is. A new and comfortable couch and the satisfaction of removing an item or two from a list of things to do…these aren’t bad either. Sounds like, from this post, you are enjoying some excellent creature comforts.
Haha., I hope you have a lovely second week of March ahead.
Yes, I am enjoying life! I expect the second week of March to be just fine even if there is a bump or two. 🙂
Fabulous. Retirement is awesome, isn’t it?
I am liking it far too much!
Such a peaceful post, the contentment flows through it, and I can relate so well. Having unstructured time is truly an amazing blessing! I love that you are always thinking of others… a comfy bed for visitors, food to share, books put in order, giving back is your way of life and it is a lesson to us all. I am sure your furkids are loving sharing that new sofa with you, anything new is such a curiosity to them, even rearranged furniture intrigues them. Enjoy the unfolding of Spring there, and continue to look forward to each day with wonder and hope! Thank you for sharing your blessings with us at TToT! XOXO
Josie, you say such lovely things about me.Thank you for the encouragement. Someday maybe I will write Four Things of Frustration or Six Things of Stupid or Eight Things of Anger then you would see another side of me. On second thought I will keep those things to myself. 🙂
Well, I am trying to comment again. I hope it goes through. Your lists are always so wonderful, genuine, and sincere. But, you always are that way. Hugs.
