ttot, gratitude blog, reasons to be thankful


Eggs Benedict breakfast1 to start my day
With Paul,2 my love, in this cafe
Gives me reason to smile and think okay
I would face the challenges that gets my way

Memorial Day we had some barbecue3
Overlooking my front yard with weedy view
I should be thankful, ignore the blues
At least I've got great food to chew

We also had some Carvel ice cream cake4
Small-size, so good, we shared and ate
And then I had a time with daughter5
Just me and her, we had a date

The Amazon Prime I use for music6
Is nice to listen to when stuck in traffic
Songs of all kinds, name it, they have it
Be it the 80s, 90's, or classic

The New York Times I have in Audible7

I get for free to listen to
It fits me right staying cheap and simple
And saves me time as I eat on the table

A slice of pizza8 from my store Costco

Enough for lunch with my free cocoa
They always have some freebie drinks
To gulp with whatever food I pick

To end my evening, I have some wine9
You know the red, that tastes so fine
It helps me calm my nerves on nights
When happiness fades and my smile dries

Piece by piece, the parts together10
Makes a fine week, in random order
It's not the best week of my life
But it's complete, with small highlights

I love the way you set up your post. The puzzle effect is cute, too. I love me a glass of red wine - unwind with wine.

I like how everything together makes 10. But pizza sounds really good right now!

Very nice, creative way to do the 10 this week! I like how you pulled it all together with the puzzle theme, and not just because our family loves a good jigsaw puzzle. :)
Looks like you did some good eating this week! Better that you were eating with loved ones.

I LOVE eggs Benedict. One of our favorite breakfasts in this house. Your puzzle theme is awesome, Carin. Love what you did. Ooh, I could eat pizza now, too. You've made me hungry!

Thanks, Christine. Part of the fun is how different I can make the post from week to week.

Lisa, I do not have the patience to make the hollaindaise sauce. The cafe just do it perfectly. It's probably safer that way so I don't eat eggs benedict with sauce every morning.

I love that you had a date with your daughter. I know from previous weeks that it's not always smooth sailing so I'm happy when I hear you've had easier days.

Love the food you've been enjoying.

And, if you're gonna get stuck in traffic, at least you have music.
