Well hello my lovely readers, I know this post is a few days late, but this weekend certainly was a busy one and I have just gotten the chance to sit down and reflect on the week-and-a-bit that has passed. So, while I sit with Mum eating my massive lunchtime salad and watching Murder She Wrote, please do read on for this week’s Thoroughly Nourished Life Gratitude List.
Monday: A great day for writing, and dreaming, and trying to find the courage to face those dreams.
Tuesday: Grateful for a grounding day in the kitchen. I made pretty pink vanilla cupcakes for Mama to take to work, and chicken pot pies for Mama and Dad’s dinner. The perfect way to spend a cool almost-winter afternoon. I shall have to share the chicken pie recipe soon!
Wednesday: An early morning winter workout with Jillian Michaels started the day off with a shot of endorphins. I am thankful for Chris’s technological genius, which diverted a potential disaster in the evening.
Thursday: A hard goodbye today. So grateful to all my wonderful friends at work who made my last day beautiful and filled with sunshine despite the rainy sky. A very big thank you to everyone who commented on my post about this, or emailed me, your sweet words of encouragement are fuel to keep me seeking my dreams.
Friday: A thanksgiving is due for the wonderful morning I spent soaking up the late autumn sunshine on Casey’s front deck while she plied me with gluten-free goodies and we caught up on where we are in our lives at the moment.
Saturday: A day filled with family time. A morning at the market with the ladies, lunch for my brother-in-law’s graduation and police academy commencement, and a gorgeous feast and catch-up with Chris’s family at dinner time. So much love around every table. (and Chris’s Mama got a gluten-free cake so I could have some too!)
Sunday: Another day filled with family. My grandmother is moving house so the whole clan gathered to pack, clean, measure, and natter the day away. An emotional day, but I am so grateful that our family is so close.
Now, while I finish up my cup of tea, tell me dear reader, what were you grateful for this week?
