Gratitude

29 Oct 2022 – Chateau Latour 1982

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself – Tecumseh

Wed: never knew that that are so many animals&plants you should never touch(30) – Nature’s Toxic Reality https://news.science101.com/en/ever-touch-never?ly=native_one

Who would ever know that the leaf of rhubarb is that toxic??

Thu: monthly grocery shopping@Giant/Tampines(24hrs) which takes a full day for me. Morning bus to Bedok for the free shuttle; hours looking at their new products&promotions, then cleaning produces&putting away everything and usually too exhausted by then to do anything else!  Found my favourite ice-cream there, tkx to Clement for that tip – did not get any, freezer full+no cooler bag with me today but delighted to now know and hopefully that they will keep stocking that in future.

The soul that gives thanks can find comfort in everything; the soul that complains can find comfort in nothing – HW Smith

Fri: appreciations to Clement for brunch@Privé/i12Katong. Happy Bday to Theresa, tkx for steak dinner and probably the first&last time! to taste ChateauLatour1982, had to savour every drop. Also first time tasting this yummy specially-made Bday-Chestnut-Cake/HKG-style栗子蛋糕 and those must be the biggest blueberries have ever seen&tasted.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them – JF Kennedy 

Sat: not even sure if this sign exist – downloaded from Hyperlite Mountain Gear/Photos from KatieHouston (@oatshikes)  If this is for real, it is to my eyes a tasteful AT-marking&sign, thus would appreciate to know where on the AT this can be found – must be missing my hikes!!

When I pray, I always thank Mother Nature for all the beauty in the world. It’s about having an attitude of gratitude – Kerr
