Before the storm, Mollie called me and made sure I had plenty of everything I needed. That made me feel loved.
After the storm, my neighbor-across-the-street Allan came over with his snowblower and made a path from the street to my front walk because he is a good man. That made me feel grateful.
During the storm, Bob e-mailed me and we had this exchange . . .
BOB: Do you know how to trap for food?
JENNY: No, I don’t know how to trap for food. I know how to shop for food and put it in the fridge.
BOB: Trapping is much more efficient than hunting. If you haven’t bought any snares– I recommend Redneck Snares on Amazon–you can always rip some ligaments out of your non-primary arm and use those.
JENNY: Good tip about the non-primary arm.
BOB: And then you can eat the arm but only after stopping the bleeding.
JENNY: I am not eating my left arm.
BOB: After you use the ligaments to make snares, you use the larger bones as clubs and the ones from the hands as fishing lures.
. . . which made me laugh.
And then Krissie’s box of Christmas presents arrived which made me feel like a little kid again, presents and snow and something to look forward to on Christmas.
What I’m saying is, the people in my life make me happy (and grateful). What made you happy this week?
