|Thanksgiving Day 2008|
I went for a wintry walk, since we woke up here in Bellingham to more snow. Although rain is falling farther south, the cold air that came down the Fraser Valley last week is still in place in our part of the state, causing our precipitation to fall in the form of snow. Sometime this evening it should change to rain, with the temperatures rising above freezing sometime tomorrow. It has been a really cold week. Although it is nice to have a warm and cozy place to live, I have to admit I am bundled up while inside, since getting the temperature in here up to 63 degrees (Fahrenheit, 17 C) is a challenge. At noon it was 27 degrees outside with 90% humidity, which I find to be on the chilly side.
But I'm still grateful for not having lost electricity during the wind storm, since everything in the apartment is electric, including the heat. I've wondered what we would do if we lost power, since we couldn't stay here very long. A fireplace is nice for many reasons, not the least of which is having an independent heat source.
My complaints are few and far between. My gratitude is boundless. I'd like to give thanks for my health, my life partner, family members scattered far and wide, having abundance enough to feed the birds and pay for a gym membership, and for you, my blogging friends. My life has been enriched beyond all expectations by visiting your blogs, as well as cherishing the insightful comments many of you leave for me. Thanksgiving 2010 is all right!
