30 days of thanks-day 21

I am so thankful for the day I had yesterday.  I woke about 6, took my meds, was on the computer while I drank my coffee.  I have cut down on my computer time, in other words I deactivated my facebook!  After I took a shower I started in picking up in the house, swished/swiped the bathroom, washed 6 loads of laundry, vacuumed the living room, washed dishes, had a cake baked by noon. 

What's so great about all this you say?  Why is she telling us all about 'normal' daily activities? 
Becuase I had energy!!  I had the want to !!  I felt good!!  I wasnt' hurting!! No headache, back ache (outside the norm)!! 

Oh!  I even got the insides of a couple embroidered pillows sewn, stuffed and the  pillows put back together and they are on my bed and it looks good.  Makes me smile. 

The best part about yesterday is that I, somehow, got my cuckoo clock working!!  It has been sitting quiet for a couple yrs now.  Why didnt' I get it looked at?  I dont' know, just another thing I ignored, even tho it made me sad.  But yesterday I took it off the wall, turned it around, tried to get the back off to see inside, said, 'oh, well, guess I'll have to find someone who works on them', hung it back on teh wall, set the time, moved the pendulum and it's still working!!  I love, love hearing a clock tick.  I guess I get my love of clocks from my mom.  And to hear the little cuckoo come out and then to see the little German dancers dancing.  Brings joy to my heart.  Makes me smile. 

Yep!  I think I'm feeling better. 

And if you've gotten this far, thanks for reading.
I pray that you have a blessed day.

Yeah for you Patty! I wish I had the same energy to get things done. I feel like roadkill right now. Good for you, deactivating your FB account. The drama on their is so overwhelming sometimes! Have a wonderful day!
