It has taken me time to adjust to the slowed down pace of life in the house – no extra guests, no classes to teach = time. I limped around for about a week trying to figure out how a person walks without her “have to” list dominating her mind. But I remembered …
Oh books, I have missed you. I finished a book, I read another one, and I am fully immersed in another one. It feels very indulgent and wonderful. I am thankful for talented, diligent authors who create interesting, intriguing, and funny stories and share them with the world.
Buddha Bowl-esque fooding
Colourful veggies and fruit, tasty sauces, healthy grains, and proteins –all in a bowl, together, for me. Yup – I am enjoying this honeymoon phase of eating “clean.”
Longer light hours (soon to be even more)
I am enjoying the pinks and purples outside my kitchen window while I prepare meals … I am thankful for the seasons, each in their turn.
Teeny tiny buds on the lilac bushes around my house
Anticipation! I am thankful for things to look forward to.
A happy kid
Rewarded for his generous “helping” nature – also his giant smile and sincere “disbelief” over having “won.” And his long limbs. (The yellow jersey was his prize for being the most helpful kid in his soccer group.)
