Gratitude Sunday


  • I’m feeling: tired.  Last week was a week from hell in ways I haven’t experienced in a long time.
  • I’m listening to: sounds of  the wind outside my window.
  • I’m thinking of / wondering why: the fight I have ahead of me with my COBRA administrator so I wouldn’t lose $2000 of my hard earned dollars because they haven’t done what they are supposed to do.
  • I’m looking forward to:  brunch next week Sunday with my cousin Sabs.  Getting the movie “Maleficient” from Netflix.
  • I’m learning to/practicing to/working on/embracing: staying focused despite challenges
  • I’m enjoying: Talenti gelato,  trips to the public library and my Charlie Brown christmas tree.  It makes me smile so much!

Charlie Brown Christmas Tree

  • I’m creating/planning to create: some felt and knitted ornaments for my tree and a fair isle Christmas hat.  Still working on a hat for my friend.  All these Christmas projects are just taking me away from WIPs.  😀
  • I’m grateful for: Spending time with my cousin Jacintha this week.  Being out and about with her really made up for a troublesome week.   Damon at Pa yflex.  He really has been extremely helpful.   Giselle at Cohen’s Optical.  Another example of superior customer service.  She made my optometrist visit really good.  A good report from the optometrist.  No degeneration, no eye diseases.  It was especially great to hear that there was absolutely no evidence of diabetes in my eyes.  I was really happy to hear that.  I need reading glasses but I’m okay with that.     Nadine.  Ellie my new real life pal from Ravelry.  I had a wonderful time with her and she was kind enough to treat me to lunch.   I love it when online connections translate to real life.
  • Around the house are:  Extra clean rooms.  My management company is going through a building inspection and asked me if my unit can be one of them that they show-case.  I guess being a Tidy Tina is a plus for me and now for them!  😀
  • In my kitchen: cod-fish cakes made for my cousin.
  • I’m planning later in the coming week to: go back to the library to pick up this book — 55 Christmas Balls To Knit.   Christmas knits are taking my life over!!!  LOLOL!  To pick up a few Christmas gifts.  Make a trip to Ikea for some necessities.  That store is the devil, I’m hoping to make it out alive with only what I go in for.

Today, I’m going to indulge in a day of Austen movies — Emma, Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice.  They always make me feel better.

  • Quote/verse of the week:


  • I’m wishing you: the very best of Sundays and a wonderful week ahead.

      Thank you friend. They traumatised me so much last week, I had to work up my courage this week; tomorrow, I’ll make the call.
