Wow! this week has gone by faster than any other. I missed three days out of the middle with an intestinal flu like symptoms. I’ll just remove those three days from the week and find something to share about the two days left.

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story has encouraged us to look into our week and pick 5 things to be thankful for, blessings as they are called. So join us in a weekly FFF as we express ourselves for what we are blessed.

Friday’s favourite five #31

1. Winter sleigh rides. Although I didn’t get any exercise this week at all I did take in a sleigh ride. This week the couch and I became best friends as I spent 3 days there being sick. Monday I was fine they should have put me out behind this sleigh and made me run that would have made up for the week. Oh well, I’m feeling a tiny winy bit better today, at least I’m at my computer.

2. Electric throw. This past Christmas I received an electric throw. Lets just say it was a well used gift this week.

3. Well water. I moved away from our family farm house in July of 08. I just love the water there and every so often I go over and fill up a jug. Over the past two months the kids have been filling up two water jugs and bringing them over when they come to visit because I like the water. The house is up for sale and the joke is that we will have a conditional to sale that mom can get drinking water.

4. A blog a day. I have tried to maintain a blog a day for some time. I believed I needed to keep the interest in order to keep the reader. In an earlier post I wrote about this and got a lot of email responses to how you felt on keeping up with blogging, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Again thank you for sharing this with me, because over the past three days when I was sick I never once felt guilty of not being here. However the French Gardener was thinking he would have to take the reins and come on board this am, but I’m here. Not for long as I need to rest again, but I’ll get caught up on my reading by the time the week is through.

5. From the French Gardener.
Physiotherapy, especially when covered by medical insurance. For a couple of years I have been struggling with shoulder pain. I finally decided to talk to the doctor about it. He sent me for physio. The therapists were great and very thorough in examination and explanation. After 10 days of being faithful to their recommended exercises I would say 80% of the discomfort is gone. When spring arrives I should be in great shape to resume my gardening duties.

Starting the week off right with a sleigh ride.

It turned out to be a beautiful cold crisp evening, thankful for the hot chocolate afterwards.

I’m privileged to be here, to share and read. I’m thankful to Susanne for hosting Living to Tell the Story and I’m going to see her right now, you can too.
