Bloganuary #10: I’m Grateful

  1. I am so grateful for blue skies and the beauty in Arizona.

2. I am so grateful to be healthy and to try new recipes fix. We found this delicious rye bread at the Wildflower Cafe. I love to eat out and I love to try to replicate what I love in my favorite restaurants. I finally did it with this meal.

California Reuben Sandwich made with turkey rather than corned beef and topped with parmesan cheese.

3. We see this amazing view every time we turn the corner and head towards the store but it changes too fast when we’re driving, and the windshield is never clean enough. When I got the corner, a car was turning onto Prescott Lakes Parkway so I took the opportunity to cross to the center of the street and snap the shot. As I did so, I realized that I was in the middle of the street and the light was green. I was expecting more time to cross. I RAN across to the side safely. The mere fact that I can still run is a miracle in itself.

I’m glad I wasn’t run over when I took this picture. It scares me to even look at it now!

4. I’m grateful that our outdoor kitties have celebrated one year in their new home without going outside once. They don’t seem to mind at all.

5. This should be first and foremost, but I saved the best for last. I am so grateful to the Lord for sparing my life and for the family and friends who love me. Life without love would be meaningless. Thank you all for being part of my life and giving it meaning. Have a wonderful 2022.

  1. Your road side snap reminds me of when I did the same last month, but for me it ended in disaster! My dear hubby drove over my foot as I turned round
    Oh my god the pain, luckily it wasn’t broken but I collapsed in the road and he had to pick me up. It’s still bruised a month later.

    • You poor thing, Alison. My friend Connie did that to me once, and fortunately my shoe was just a bit too big. I slipped out of it leaving it under her wheel. I escaped unscathed. You never realize how important your feet or legs are until they don’t work! I hope you continue to heal fast!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
