Thankful Thursday 24 September 2020

It’s the first Thursday of autumn! Woohoo! Autumn is one of my favourite seasons and it’s one of the best times for photos. Some of the maples have started changing already and I just love seeing the colours. Mom put out the ceramic jack-o-lantern and I’ll get a photo tomorrow.

Today I went into the office and I am thankful for Shetana. She had to order breakfast from McDonalds via Uber Eats and she asked if I wanted anything. I can only eat their hashbrowns, she ordered one for me but Uber Eats forgot that part of the order. She apologized, but I still thanked her for thinking of me.

Then she gave me a stamp. I didn’t realize the Jewish Federation required a stamp to send in my donation. I’m grateful for that. At the end of the day, she thanked me for coming in, and I’m one of her favourite people, that she misses seeing me on a regular basis. I feel the same way.

I’m dogsitting for my aunt tonight, tomorrow, and Saturday until dinnertime. Matt left a half an hour ago and it felt nice to chat with him for about an hour. I’m thankful that my aunt bought me gluten-free foods and I’m looking forward to spending the weekend with the dogs.

I’m also thankful for my parents and friends. What are you thankful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Happy Thankful Thursday, dear friend! Yessum, I forgot to mention that I hope you will post pics of your Jack-o-Lanterns and other H-ween decorations along with the glorious fall leaves in your vicinity. I get a vicarious thrill from seeing the autumn beauty that surrounds you up there, like the colorful foliage spreading through that maple.

    I’m happy that you had a positive encounter with Shetana at work. Seems to me somebody should have made sure your order was properly filled, but that’s the way it goes sometimes. The friendship you have with Shetana seems genuine. It was a very high compliment for her to state that you are one of her favorite people and that she misses you.

    Lucky you – getting to dogsit at your aunt’s house all weekend with the place well stocked with GF foods. I’d like to smooch that pooch! Have fun playing with him.

    See you soon, dear friend JM!
