BUT - it is also the day we celebrate(d) Dug the Doodle Dog's birthday, since it is the date we officially adopted him.
(Sadly, here in the U.S. the anniversary of something awful, but I don't have the wherewithal to deal with that right now.)
OK, so it's also Thursday, and Carole is doing a Three on Thursday collection of posts, and I thought I'd join in the fun. So here are three things that have already been good in 2022.
1. Cold weather has returned. It is winter, after all, and the warm temperatures last week just annoyed me. I know that for some people it has been a terrible week of too much snow and cold, and I am sorry for that, but for me Winter = Cold and so I've been pleased about it.
2. I was ready to start a new knitting project, and I had the stitches cast on, the set-up rows done, and then - didn't understand the next part of the pattern, no matter how I tried to figure it out. So I finally contacted the designer, and really thought that if she responded at all, it would be in a little while, since people are catching up on things at this time of year. BUT - she responded within a day, and her response was not just helpful, but so incredibly kind. Even if while writing it, she was rolling her eyes (i.e., "I can't believe she doesn't get this!"), it didn't come across like that on receipt.
3. I was able to make an appt for my annual eye exam and it is a week from tomorrow! This is good because there were not many open slots available, and my vision has been really bugging me lately. So rather than have to wait any longer, I'll be there almost right away, and able to see what has/has not changed, and if things can be improved. The eye doctor I usually go to is wonderful, but her popularity has increased recently, and it's been a bit more difficult to get onto her schedule. So yay for me!
I hope you can think of at least three things that have been good for you so far this year.
