This morning I'm grateful for:

-Getting some good exercise in yesterday
-Getting my 1,000 exercise minutes trophy from SparkPeople (trophies go by your full exercise minutes whereas Spark points limit you to 120 minutes daily)
-A delightful Plan B last night; Luminary Walk canceled due to heavy rain so my friends and I drank wine, had excellent soup for dinner and played Perquackey
-Being sent home with pumpkin pie, something I love but wouldn't make an entire pie just for myself
-Today's forecast is sunny and around 60; perfect for my volunteer night at the Luminary Walk!
-My great mystery book coming to a fast conclusion ... I should finish it this morning; really like this Australian author and plan to order more
-Lots of morning kitty time

My many appreciations this morning include:
-Connecting with exuberantly positive bank teller after previous frustration, clearing perspective and making my day brighter
-Making R and Kiowa happy by taking Kiowa for KJ walk in the beautiful day (mostly the afterglow of exercise is far more motivating than the prospect of taking on the task)
-Waking up from dream were my thoughtlessness had cost me and realizing it was a dream...good reminder to be mindful in wake time
-Chopra meditation providing daily insights and affirmation
-Rallying energy for afternoon shopping after good foot massage

This morning I'm grateful for:

-Feeling robust and rested after extra hour from time change (we'll see how I feel when I drive home in the dark)
-Yesterday's changing sky; started with rows of billowing puff balls in the morning, by mid-afternoon, there wasn't a cloud in the sky
-The kitties loving their winter igloos, though they still slept with me in bed

-Making Target run last night, even when I didn't want to go back out
-My company's healthy incentive exercise program ends today; SparkPeople maintenance challenge starts today
-My job; if I have to continue to work, this is the place I want to be!

Gboomer and Stephanie (blush) you are awesome
This first day of November has me feeling grateful for having this time to think on appreciations:
-Sharing good will with neighbors, trick or treating children and later in the evening, teenagers
-Sneaking in some cardio with far a way parking and Costco shopping
-Delivering gift on day with the roads all clear of ice
-Watching R favorite team winning last night
-Restorative sleep in my polyphasic style

I "second" everything GBoomer says, couldn't say it any better!! Bowing in gratitude to Rebecca, as always, for getting us started ...

On this first morning of November, I'm grateful for:

-New beginnings, each and every one of them
-A selection of warm coats to choose from, as I realize many struggle for one
-The solid roof over my head to protect me & three rescue kitty girls from the storms
-Siamese Cat Rescue Center of VA, supporting their last year of cat calendars, ordering one for me & my sister; they are tired & moving to becoming a foundation to continue support, but no longer being a rescue intake
-Always, my health
-Friday! The weather has made it a tiring week and I'm ready for a bit of R&R

How lucky I am to get to feel and express gratitude in the company of others! And what a wonderful little group of “others” we have here, with Rebecca and Stephanie and anyone else who joins us!

Thank you, Rebecca, for this November 2019 thread!

I am grateful this morning for:
> being able to help an elderly, slow-moving couple get their kitten adoption processed when it looked like they were slipping through the cracks at the shelter last night
> joining the MDS Foundation in order to support my mother
> extra time with super cute kittens and cats yesterday
> sending out email alerting students to registration start on Monday
> hugs, kisses and i-love-yous
> picking up some items in prep for ebike arrival at Target yesterday
