I am grateful for the wherewithal to accomplish several small tasks. It’s been a while that I’ve been lying around like a lump, so it was good to sit at the kitchen table and box up a painting for delivery, and a few other things like that.
I am grateful for fellow artists that have stepped up to strike a group show that I had organized. They’ll do it all without me, and will deliver my paintings home to me.
I am grateful for my mother in-law, who took Farley to the beach to look at tidal pools today, and returned with seawater rife with little critters to be inspected with Farley’s microscope.
I am grateful for a birthday event Cooper attended for one of his buddies today. They went off on a biking adventure and had a blast, by all accounts.
I am grateful for a call from the hospital. Nothing is for sure, I guess, ever, but it sounds likely I’ll get surgery on my ankle tomorrow. I am looking forward to the point at which I can expect it will start to get better.
I am grateful for Julie, who is taking good care of me and all the people here.
