Good News Friday…

We weren’t inundated with a frog-stranglin’-gully-washer despite the doom and gloom forecast by the weather people. A bit of gentle rain. It was lovely.

Wings to Fly is not moving along as quickly as I’d like, but I am very happy with each chapter completed so far.

Overall, I’m mentally in a pretty good place.

I’m enjoying dog therapy time. I only spend a half hour to an hour with her several days a week, but there is simply something about spending time with a dog.

My eating is a new adventure. I knew I was stuck in the old habits. I’ve attempted to make changes over the years, but things didn’t change in my head. This week, I made some big changes in my eating, overeating but in a way I never have before. My weight crept up a few pounds. I wrote myself a note: Had enough yet? We’ll see if it makes a difference.

The weather people promised another deluge because of a hurricane coming up from the south. They were wrong. I laugh a lot when Man makes a declaration over God’s creation, and Man discovers how much they don’t know. Having said that, there is some flooding to the south, and I hope people were prepared for it.

I thought I’d lost my Christmas cactus. Pieces fell off, and I couldn’t bring myself to throw them away so I planted them. Both pieces are thriving! I need to replant them in larger pots. Amazing.

What’s something good in your day?



  1. This is a bit of a coincidence, at my desk I have a page a day calendar for quotes, I switched it to the weekend one already. With your story of dog therapy time and the planting of the cactus, this is the quote: “Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.” ~James Cromwell. Thought it was fitting with your good news.
    Today, I started back at school, which I wasn’t looking forward to, once there realized I could do this. It was a pleasant surprise. πŸ™‚

    • My pet certainly taught me about nurturing and caring. πŸ™‚

      Go you!

  2. I’m glad there is a second life for your cactus. πŸ™‚ That’s beautiful! Is this novel you’re working on a historical?
