No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

No man-made device since the shields and lances of knights quite fulfills a man's ego like an automobile." - William Rootes

Wednesday, how quickly it arrived. We are now half way to the end of the year. Where has the time gone? It does not seem that long ago that we were beginning the year 2011.

I don't know what all I've accomplished this year, other than:

1. I kept my potted plant garden alive.

2. I grew tomatoes and was able to eat three of them.

3. Finally, the one calla lily plant I transplanted to a pot actually bloomed.

4. I became more active in my Al-Anon program and I am seeing the results.

5. Made new friends from the food banks.

6. I have had more contact this year from my son than I've had in years thanks to texting and facebook.

7. I made pumpkin soup for the first time and I liked it.

8. I have read more books this year than I have in a long time.

9. I reconnected with my best friend from Kansas who now lives in Pennsylvania.

10. This year is the healthiest I have been in three years.

11. It has been a year and a half since moving into our apartment from being homeless.

12. The birds have come to feed and Bailey and I like to watch them.

13. I began blogging again and have written most days, and

14. I live in PARADISE with the man of my dreams and a totally awesome cat!!!!

Looking over this list, it appears I have had a really good year.

It was dark when my alarm went off to take my thyroid medication. It fleetingly crossed my mind to go back to sleep; but, I remembered today was a food bank day. Plus I was going to receive handmade tamales from my friend Mary.

Thankfully last night, I laid out the clothes I would wear today and that aided my preparing for the day. Although I did nothing with my hair which is in a braid and I know it is all frizzy. Note to self: Self re-braid my hair.

I arrived at the community center and realized I had left my ID at home. Drat! Well, I had time to return home to get it and so I did. The walking will do me good. I do feel the affects of yesterday's walking. Two walks yesterday and by the time I finish up with the food bank; I will have three walks in.

It was a cool clear dawn as I walked down the street. I can still see stars in the sky. Today I brought a pillow with me to sit on the concrete bench. Last week I froze my bottom. The pillow did help. Just before the sun rose above the horizon I could feel the night's cool grip, grip a little harder not wanting to be gone. Thankfully, the sun rose above the tree line and I began to feel the warmth of the sunshine.

Not many at the food bank this day. I suspect most folks are still visiting family and friends. Today, I am number five in line. Another good thing, we are told that many food banks are closed due to the holidays and so the bank is well stocked. I came away with many good things for us to eat this coming week. And, I must not forget those tamales!

I have had my interaction with people today. I have had my physical activity as well. I think I am going to go take a nap.
