Thankful Thursday 6/22/2017

Yesterday I posted this to Facebook:

Some mornings are rough with Lyft, but most mornings are pretty good. Today my driver came from Philadelphia and when I hopped into his car, I noticed his poop emoji stuffie on his dashboard. I giggled and said, "I love the poop emoji sitting on your dashboard! My dad loved the poop emoji." He laughed and said I could have it to give to my dad.
I didn't think he was serious. During the ride we had a conversation and he mentioned he was from Abu Dhabi. I told him I wanted to visit one day, the UAE in general, and he was telling me all about his home town.
I digress, as soon as he dropped me off at the train station. He handed me the poop emoji and I thanked him in Arabic. Day made!
(Also my Jiffy recipe book - a free order - was in the mail box this morning!)

I still feel really thankful about being given that poop emoji. After a bad day on Tuesday, being given that little gift on Wednesday made my day. I know it sounds silly.

Today is also 18 years since Significant Other was released. This was my CD during the summer of 2001, back when I had to listen to edited music. Korn was the first CD I bought unedited in March 2013 when I was allowed to finally purchase unedited music. I'm not sure why I didn't replace my Limp Bizkit CDs with unedited ones, but I found Significant Other in Repo Records on Saturday for $1.99. Couldn't pass it up and have been listening to it ever since.

What are you thankful for today?

Roller Skating Pictures

I decided to wear a skirt while roller skating on Saturday night. Despite the rink being wet, I still did well and had a great time. I especially had a great time roller skating in a skirt. It was an interesting experience.

Soundtrack from Saturday night:

Learning How to Skate Dance

On Saturday night when I went roller skating, I saw this older gentleman dancing while he was skating.

I had to join in and he actually showed me how to do both the Cha Cha Slide and Mississippi Slide!

It was so much fun! I want to go every Saturday night now. :) Since I have Blue Cross insurance, I can skate for free. I like skating at the Blue Cross rink because I felt more welcomed than I did in Oaks.

Philadelphia Lantern Festival

Every year from May until June, China Town runs a lantern festival in Franklin Square Park. Every year we seem to miss it, but I wanted to go this year to check out the Philadelphia Lantern Festival. A few times when I took Lyft home, we passed by and it looked wonderful from the road, I wanted to see it for myself.

It was $17 to enter, but the sights were amazing. Despite the rain, we all enjoyed looking at the different illuminated pieces of art. I also loved hearing the music.
