Autumn has arrived! How has that happened so quickly, or was it so slowly, or both? The year has been so unlike any other I have experienced, but the one thing I know is that it is still possible to find both big and little things that make me feel thankful. I am linking up to the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop currently hosted by Kristi of Thankful Me.
2. File folders
Some of our file folders were looking way overdue for being replaced, so that became one of my "during the pandemic" projects this week. This was not the most exciting project, but at least now I won't have to lift up the tabs to see the writing on the tabs.
3. Hair cutting shears
I did it! Because of trying to limit my contacts with others as much as possible during the pandemic, I haven't gone to the beauty parlor for any haircuts since February. This week I handed the shears to my husband and asked him just to trim a little off the ends.
4. The answering machine that allows us the ability to avoid being victims to scam calls like the one this morning that supposedly was about an Amazon purchase the scammer was calling to verify. We knew we did not order such item.
If someone wants to talk to us, they can leave a message, and we will call them back if it is someone we know. If the call seems a little suspicious, we don't return it and just delete the message.
5. Customer service chat
6. Little branches, instead of large ones, that fell on the lane during a rather windy night this week
They were much easier to move to the side of the lane.
7. What I like to think was the sound of a happy frog croaking in the middle of a rainy day letting me know that it was not just me feeling happy that we have finally gotten a few days rain
8. Crossword puzzle book
After working my way through a Sudoku book until I reached the hard ones, I was excited that I could actually work some of the hard ones, but decided to let my husband have the rest. He really is more skilled doing the hard ones than I am. The crossword puzzle book seems a little less challenging.
9. Looking at my mother’s hairstyle in a photo of her when she was a little girl and recognizing how much my hair has become a duplicate of hers during this COVID pandemic while my hair is on a mission to take over of my head with curls going every which way

10. Earlier this week remembering our wedding day 57 years ago and both of us laughing that neither of us had realized we got married on the first day of fall
Maybe we were just twitterpated!
