Progress: Three Happy Things

Even though I am exhausted, today is feeling like a good day. The hens are loving the sunshine, too. A few weeks ago, a young friend said she might be able to come for 30 minutes each week or maybe an hour to help me. I assured her 30 minutes would be great. And, I will not allow her to do "one more thing," even if I need 40 more things just to see the end.

1) Today, she came and washed both my crockpots outdoors, plus some utensils in one. So. I am set and can cook 4 lbs of ground beef in one and five pounds of boneless, skinless breast I bought for $1.79/lb.

2) Then, my Weather Radio came. I sent in the letter they sent me to send back, but it was late. I emailed and told her how ill I had been and could I have a few days grace. She agreed and I have my weather radio.

3) As I was looking in a tiny bag I keep packed for traveling, I found the prescription of cream I lost. So, that mystery is settled!  The bag is about 6"x6"x9" and holds soap, toothbrush and paste, Q-tips and such. So, why I ever stuck a prescription in there and did not find it sooner remains a minor mystery. But, it is found! And, I can use it.

That is my day in three bullets.  It is funny how just a few things can lift a person's spirits.

4) I will add the church dinner tonight as a good thing. I do eat here, but a cooked, balanced meal is definitely a happy thing.

UPDATE: I brought enough home to feed hens for three days--lots of half-eaten baked potatoes, baked beans, slaw, remnants of pulled pork. And, there was  whole baked potato, never cut for me. I call that dinner one night.

Your turn
How was your day? Anything happen to lift your spirits? Now, I did not ask about your lifting of spirits!

Sitting in the sun a bit was good for me. Now, lying in bed will be another good thing today.

  1. Yay for good things. They make a huge difference. Even the smallest of good things.

    1. EC,
      The small things do make a difference. Of course, today I am depending on a sunshine hangover from yesterday to handle the gloom and rain. Spring has sprung.

    1. Church dinner was delicious--pulled pork, bbq sauce for meat,baked potato, cole slaw, baked beans, peach cobbler with ice cream. I brought lots home for hens and a baked potato for me to bring home. Hens ate for two days. I halved the baked potato and sent it home with exbf.
