Gratitude Sunday

I know I missed last week’s entry but that was for a good reason.  I met up with my cousins who all live in NY for our annual get-together.   Let’s just say, great fun was had by all.

Today:

  • I’m feeling: pretty good! 😀
  • I’m listening to: sounds of construction going on in the apt across the hall.  I hope I get great neighbors like the couple who was there before.
  • I’m thinking of / wondering why: what my little Charlie Brown Christmas tree should look like.  I didn’t bother to bring out the big one, right now, this little tree suits my mental aesthetic. 😀
  • I’m looking forward to:  meeting a Ravelry online pal in person this coming Tuesday for lunch and hanging out.  Spending time with my cousin Jacintha who’s getting to NY tomorrow!  Yay!
  • I’m learning to/practicing to/working on/embracing: trust God despite what I can see and despite my fears.
  • I’m enjoying: getting ready for Christmas, tea, knitting, reading and my faux fireplace

when the radiator heat is coming up, you can’t tell me that warmth of my “fireplace” ain’t real!!!  😀

  • I’m creating/planning to create: a hat for a friend, some more wall art (more on that later this week) and a cozy, winter home.
  • I’m grateful for: God’s grace and peace this week.  Crafting therapy.  Forewarning of a potentially expensive situation re my insurance coverage at my old job and seeing God work that out in miraculous ways.  A great Thanksgiving weekend despite what’s going on in my life now.  I really enjoyed / am enjoying this weekend.  Spending time with my 6 beautiful cousins last Sunday.  ❤
  • Around the house are:  Christmas scented candles burning, decorations ready to be put up today, yarn, books and tea!
  • In my kitchen: Thursday’s leftovers waiting to be devoured!  😀
  • I’m planning later in the coming week to: continue to job hunt.  Go get glasses (sheesh!).  Meet up with an online Ravelry buddy for the first time. Craft some more.  Get some reading done.  Sign up for some apothecary classes.

Gratitude Sunday

Today:

  • I’m feeling: mixed emotions.
  • I’m listening to: traffic noises outside.
  • I’m thinking of / wondering: how life can be so good and so frustrating at the same time.
  • I’m reading: The Hunger Games — the kindle version.  It’s even better than the movie!
  • I’m looking forward to: getting some Drs appts out of the way.   Doing some holiday cleaning/purging.  Lunch on Thursday with a former colleague.
  • I’m learning to/practicing to/working on/embracing: the opportunities to do certain things while I’m at home full-time.
  • I’m enjoying:   working on my wellness newsletter. Learning a new skill — arm knitting.
  • I’m creating/planning to create: meal plans for the next two weeks.

I’m grateful for: being able to spend time with my aunt for dinner and movie night.  We had a wonderful time, can’t wait for the next one!  The help of a friend on Thursday — she helped me proofread my resume.   Being able to take walks and seeing the natural beauty that’s all around despite living in a concrete “forest”.

Outside My Window

My inner warrior.  The fact that miracles still happen.

Being able to harvest the last of my basil before the leaves turned black.

Last Harvest

  • Around the house are:  fall and winter scents in every room from my plugins.  It’s getting cold outside but it’s really toasty inside.  😀
  • In my kitchen: Broccoli soup.
  • I’m planning later in the coming week to: have an at home spa day.  One whole day … just me and pampering.  Plan my Thanksgiving day meal.  I think it’s going to be a quiet one for me this year.   Firm up plans with my cousins for brunch next Sunday.
