August Blessings ~ Counting It All Joy! (Fourth Week)


Summer Adventure's!

The Dog Day's Of Summer!

August 21 ~ Waking up in my own bed is always a blessing. So thankful for my snugly pillows and cozy blankets on my comfy bed. Yep! I like my bed! Time for coffee! A nice conversation with a friend who brings smiles. Hope you have a great day off! Thanks for the smiles! Appointment.....that went south. Not paying 55 for 20 minutes! WRONG!!! Home to wait for the Solar Eclipse. Watching on TV best seat in the house. Sweet neighbors shared their Eclipse glasses with me. So awesome! Thank you. So amazing! 99.4 totality view from where I stood at. WOW! Temperatures dropped as well as getting dark. Then it was all over. The hype is now just a story on a page in history and a blip on my canvass of life. Glad I got to experience and see this once in a lifetime event. Then viewed many amazing photos that were captured during the eclipse. Thank you everyone for sharing. Loved viewing them all. Ummmm......whats for dinner? Love to meet you for dinner. Thank you! Italian dinner at Bocelli's, in Gresham, with a glass of wine shared and dessert. Yummy! Home to start cleaning and preparing for the week. Thank you Lord for neighbor's that shared glasses. For a quiet day. A wonderful dinner with my friend. For smiles that carried me through the day. You just never know what one phone call can do for another person. Thankful I don't have to hide my identity and pretend to be someone I'm not. Nice just to be me. Love that my friends and family except me just where I'm at and who I am. No false pretense or hidden agenda's. Glad I can color my canvases of life; with the beauty of all my friends and life experiences being truly who I am, not someone I'm not. Happy to do that no matter if the sun is shining or not. I do the sunshine dance or splashing in the rain dance, both create a beauty and a rainbow of colors to create a beautiful life; I'm so very grateful. Blessings

August 22~ Good morning! Love those early morning hello's. Hope you have a great day! Time to get my day started. Smiles of beauty today out in Oregon City. Love that River Road country drive. I never tire of it. My mini vacation on the way to work. Leftovers for lunch. Yummy! Time for next appointment. Not feeling like it....but I'm here and I will push through. Just feeling out of sorts. Home to get ready for work. A pleasant unexpected surprise. Kirby came by selling their wares. Free carpet cleaning. Yes! That means listening to their spill. FREE CARPET CLEANING! Worth the spill! Looks so nice. Thank you Lord for another day to spread smiles of beauty. For lessons learned and a class that helps me over my hurdles. I'm so very grateful. Thankful for the surprise of the Kirby man.....clean carpets, that I didn't have to do. They look really nice and it smells fresh and clean. Thankful for the offer he made me....but just wasn't in my budget. For the best compliment being told I looked like I was only 40 years old! Yea! Thankful that I have fans to lay under. Most of all thankful for the amazing friends and support I have. Blessings

Coffee time, make up, prayers, and get my hair looking good for the day. Fly out the door to go feed this car some gasoline before work. Nine ladies on the books! Eight beautiful smiling faces. Yep!
