This is how the day started. Patrick made pablano pepper eggs. Mmmm. We then drove to a farmers market/garden center place which ended up not being the place we thought it was. So we stopped by a nearby town and checked a couple of shops. I saw these fancy boots and as much as I coveted them, I recognize that they have no relationship to my life. Sadly. I then spontaneously met a friend for dinner, which was a great treat.

These boot were made for dancing.

I’m thankful for having Friday off at the end of a long week and for having fun things to do.

A year ago today I had my double mastectomy.

It seems like it’s been longer since it’s been quite a year. But I remember laying in my hospital bed feeling grateful that the tumor was gone and wondering what lay ahead for me. Then I looked at my feet in these socks that were so ridiculously large and obnoxiously yellow, and I just wanted to laugh. That’s when I knew I’d be ok. And I am. I’m so grateful for these milestones.

I’m so glad it’s Thursday. Well, my Thursday. Once again it’s been a long week. There’s a lot going on with work, and I’m tired of thinking. Plus the job I turned down last week popped back up. They’ve made it slightly more enticing but I’m still not sure it’s a good fit. The call took me by surprise today, so I didn’t even know what to say. I’ve got 2 days to respond. Some days I wish I had a crystal ball.

I’m thankful for smart and caring colleagues. For pasta dinner when I got home. For early bedtime.
