Morning Thoughts

It was a slightly gloomy morning weather when I was driving to work.  In some areas of the sky behind the clouds the sun was lurking, giving some hope for a sunnier day to come.
Took some pictures on the way to work:

I had to take a picture of Harvey's, one: the sky was beautiful, two: I used to drool over Harvey's hamburgers.  When I was going to university, on my way there, every time, I stopped at Harvey's and had
a hamburger and onion rings.  Those days are gone, no more onion rings for me.  At least until the next time.

In my very reasonable thinking, thinking about the positive and negative, I decided to do the negative
first since what I read last is going to stay in my mind better.

This morning I had a hard time to find my salt, I looked everywhere, and am still not sure if the salt I discovered is strong enough, but I found this:  I found a nice turtle neck sweater to wear to work.  I put it on, and it started an itch on my skin.  What The Heck, the material is acrylic, not wool.  Then I got really warm inside of the sweater and off it came.  I could not wear the dang sweater, and I was slightly upset.

On the positive side of things, I had lost a pound.  It's a good thing, It is.

Those two feelings are nothing miraculous to write about for this subject, but I am a simple person with simple joys and upsets. Anything that gives me a happy feeling is a good thing.
Oh, and I must say, the turtleneck sweater came first, and after that I decided to weigh myself.  That made me think that it's better to push the negative down with positive.

On this note, I will talk to you, if not later, then tomorrow.

Positive and Negative

A friend of mine mentioned that our friend is blogging one positive thought per day.  Of course I have to copy that idea, which I am going to TRY to do, too.

However, in my life there has to bee some salt with the sweetness, therefore I am trying to balance out
this thought with both, positive and negative.

The first one will be that I found several unfinished projects this morning, when looking for a special yarn.
And I did not get upset, which has been my reaction in the past. I consider that a very positive thing, as
I was quite excited in finding those projects.

The negative thing for today is that my pants are tight, which means another pound has crept into the area where the sitting device needs a comfortable wrapping.  Now it's not, and I feel pssd off.

I went to the dentist yesterday.  I have some caves where the surrounding teeth keep either storage for
food or keep some pieces hostage in there.  I had two of those dens closed with modern door material.
One more to go.  I like my dentist, she's funny, but not when I want to take a nap when she's working
on my teeth:  she and her technician talk too much and disturb my attempts to take a little snooze.

I am sure that the drilling would have been less painful than the needle the doctor poked into my mouth's
inner flesh.  Must remember to mention that next time.

We have a cat.  His name is Merlin.  He is almost white, but has lots of black markings, including one
right beside his nose.  That was then one that I noticed first when we were at the Animal Rescue Center
looking for a kitten to adopt.  There was a Calico kitten, which was really pretty, BUT, she hissed at me,
and I said, if that's how you want to be, go back to your cage.  Merlin was cuddly right away, but oh, so
timid, and skinny.  Now he is none of that, but he is not fat, and will never be too fat, he's going to be
a big one, lean and big.  He likes to sleep in the early evening, so he'll be alert at night, to play in our bed.

More thoughts tomorrow.
