Shakes & rain

Today, I  enjoyed the first rain in over a month and a shake. The shake seemed to be the perfect treat for my post-op healing.

A day of rest

Today, I spent a good portion of the day sneezing from my surgery. However, I was able to take some breaks with some soup, cats, and learning new things. So, today, I'm thankful for the rest.

While these flowers were a welcome break from the massive pain I dealt with from surgery, the real picker-uppers were the deviled eggs. But, in  my pain delusion, I only snapped a picture of these. Today, I'm thankful for small steps in recovery. Here's to hoping tomorrow is better.

The last hurrah

Today, I took a morning bike ride before my surgery. After four months of dealing with ear and sinus issues from my flight to Hawaii, I am hopeful for relief. So, today, I'm thankful for last hurrahs and new hurrahs.

Today was one of those hard days. And, with that I figured, what better than jam and crackers. And, you know what? I was right. Needless to say, tonight I am thankful for crackers and jam - a simple life pleasure.

We are NOT superheroes

Tonight, I had lofty ambitions. Tonight, I took a nap. Tonight, I realized I was not a superhero, but instead a very tired, over-worked human. And, tonight, I'm thankful for that realization.

Learning new things

Today, I started something I've put off forever - learning some new computer science languages. I'm starting with just a refresher of HTML and CSS, but I am anxious to move on to some new ones and fulfill a long-term goal of mine and a goal I make for my students.
