  4. It's good practice to take some time out every now and then and remind yourself what you're grateful for! It's easy to forget about the things we take for granted in the face of as-yet unfulfilled goals. Nice entry. :)

    1. Thanks JW, I believe in being grateful for all the little things - in the end, in hindsight, they are usually the big things after all.

    1. Years ago that would have definitely been on my list too. These days it's just champagne on special occasions, and too much beer. I've been on an break from all alcohol during Lent - tomorrow is party time!! :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Old Kitty. Of course I knew you could relate to the cats and kittens. I really do love all the animals I mentioned - just remembered I forgot squirrels! I need to go back at add them. My kitties would say they love squirrels too but I think we'd be talking about a different kind of love, LOL!

    1. Oh cool! I didn't realize you were in Florida too. I love getting to know other Floridians. We definitely couldn't survive without our AC!!

  14. Okay, so you have me on all of them except the ostriches (they freak me out) and raspberries, actually it's raspberry flavoring I hate. The actual berry is lovely, but anything flavored "raspberry" doesn't actually taste like it should and it makes me gag. Strangely, those are actually two of my favorite groups: animals and food. So, that's strange. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm sorry that your first post to read was such a bore. I realized later that vodka and blogging are not a great combo for me. Sad, sad realization! I look forward to (procrastinating and) perusing your blog to learn about you!

    1. Ostriches freak me out too, they are so weird! I guess that's why I like them! Raspberries - yes, only the berries themselves will do!
      When we think of the grand scheme of things, is there really anything more important than our family, animals and food? I guess most don't concentrate on these basics but I do.
      Your first post wasn't a bore at all, it's what made me like you - you are real! So many bloggers are so busy trying to create an image. I like real people with or without vodka. The vodka admission just made you even more down to earth and sincere in my eyes :)
