Gratitude: A lively sense of future benefit.
A French Definition
I had a melancholy, but productive day on Thursday. I did a lot of laundry, removed much dog hair, took care of my horses basic needs and played with Howard and Grace.
The repair technician came out in the early evening so I finally got my satellite service back. Happy day. I don't watch much TV, but I have satellite because I want to watch it when the spirit moves.
Mark plays tennis on Thursday evenings, so it was me, the dogs and Margaret the cat. I didn't want to cook, I didn't want to go buy something to eat, but I was hungry. I had a large leek, potatoes, chicken broth and milk, as well as half & half. I made potato leek soup and baking powder biscuits. Hardly cooking, just a little assembling.
I had my food, a glass of chard and I watched Glory on TCM. A good evening. Life has been better, but it surely has been worse. Sometimes it's the small things that made you notice.
