Thankful Thursday:

I'm writing this on Wednesday, after wading through a literal ton of Wordless Wednesday meme posts offerings.  I'm a purist, and am trying to hook up with the ones that haven't turned into something else. I understand the temptation, I really do.

However, it is truly good to find a non-commercialized site which is run by a photographer- , professional or amateur;  a site where the blogger understands and enjoys the Day. Thank you for sharing all your amazing photos, and being quiet,

"Shhhh!".  ;-)

Now it's Thursday, *flips Calendar*

I was able to go see my sister, and she gave me some ideas about how to go about getting things sorted at my house.  She used to admire me for my neat and orderly spaces.  Now she needs to give me advice!

But, back to Thankful Thursday:

I'm thankful for my cameras, and if there were a Goddess of Cameras, I'd be laying big bouquets of flowers at her feet!
I've been busy looking for images to share, because Life as all these tiny,overlooked and hidden beauties that may not often show themselves, or that, perhaps, get overlooked just because we are so busy trying to make a living, or we are trying to keep up on the dreadful TV news, though most of the time those media sources are using the public airways to terrify, to cow, and then to sell you something at the commercial breaks.   I have a very dire mindset towards such modern-day "Bread and Circuses".

But this is a Thankful Thursday post; I must tell you that I'm thankful that PT has helped my leg so much that it can now hold my weight by itself.  Also, a well placed Cortisone shot helped my shoulder so greatly that I was stoked enough to drag all the stuff for the two unfinished sweaters out of their cozy corner - though they growled and snapped at me- and have them ready to knit upon tomorrow - for a limited time- when I'll have a couple of free hours.

I wish you all a very productive day.  No matter how small the project, give yourself credit for getting out of bed and starting on it.  Brush our hair, and smile at yourself in the mirror.

May you walk with Beauty all around you. May you feel the Blessing of it

And remember those immortal words of Killgore Trout:  "It's all life, until it's over!"

These Orchid trees are blooming again.
 I saw some of them yesterday on the way to PT
The Carolina Cherries can't be too far behind!  We have had an abundance of rain this fall and winter, another thing for thankfulness in California.


  1. It's good to read that your physical ailments are improving - Hurrah! Enjoy your projects:-)
    (I know a little of how you feel-I haven't knit a stitch in months because of the tendovaginitis - it's finally gone, but I still don't dare).

    1. Karen, so sorry I missed this!, and just discovered both comments from the iPhone, of all things! Sorry you can't knit, either. I know you are what we would call a master knitter, so that injury is terrible. Hope you can recover from your problem.
      Right now, I can only knit a little but for months haven't been able to hold needles because manipulating them set off the shoulder, as well as the thumb.

  2. Glad to hear you are healing up and got some pain relief for that shoulder.

    1. Thank you, Wendy. Sorry to you, too. I use an odd/ even system to count comments but need to change it obviously. Thank you a lot for your good wishes. They are very much appreciated!
      Right now, I am starting to learn my limits, and it's working, for de-cluttering and for knitting.


I love comments. Sorry about the mods. If you visit and leave me a comment, I will be sure to give you a visit and let you know I appreciated it.

Wishing you " ♥A Sufficiency of all good things♥."
