And so the last week in our cottage by the bay begins! From next week on Thoroughly Nourished Life will be coming to you from a brand new kitchen! I can’t wait to see what new adventures we have together. I’m looking forward to having a space where all of our friends can gather and I can feed people once again. And so, here is a reflection of all we had to be grateful for this week in my Nourished Life Gratitude List 2015 – Week Twenty-Nine:
Monday: This afternoon I went for a big run after work and then got home to my poor sweetheart who had been in the dentist’s chair all afternoon having some pretty major work done. Then I made a big pot of soup while he napped and we enjoyed watching some Barefoot Contessa re-runs. I was grateful to a enjoy extra snuggles because of his sore mouth. Tuesday: Today I was contacted by the ever-lovely Bianca at Yum. Gluten Free Magazine to contribute to their upcoming August issue! I’ve got three recipes ready, and one is completely new and over the top, so keep an eye out for their next issue. I am so grateful that I have been able to work with Bianca and the Yum. team this year – they keep me thinking of new recipes that their readers would like and I get to share yummy gluten free food with even more people.
Wednesday: Today I was grateful for a pause at the end of the day. I got home, put on a yoga video and namaste’d the stress right out of my body. I’m really enjoying trying to incorporate some more yoga into my life. I feel so calm afterwards!Thursday: This afternoon we collected the keys to our house and it officially became ours! Thank you all so much for your support as we have been going through this process. I am so grateful that we now have our own little cottage and I can’t wait for all the new adventures and memories to begin! Tonight I went back to my Mum and Dad’s house to do some more packing and spend the last night in my room. I am grateful for all the support and help my parents have given us while we have been going through building our home.Friday: This morning Mum and I shared a pot of tea after my run and before I headed off to work and I was grateful to start the day with puppy snuggles with Molly before a busy day. I was grateful to come home for some yoga practice and then enjoy sushi for dinner while Chris and I watched Deadliest Catch. Wild times.
Saturday: Today I started out with a big walk along the water and headed to Mum and Dad’s for some more packing….so…many…books…. Jess came to visit and brought lunch (one of the key features of an excellent sister) and Jess, Mum, and I headed to the house so Jess could see it for the first time. Chris and I even picked out curtains! I don’t even know this domesticated version of myself… Grateful to visit with my whole family – I’m getting out excited for moving day!Sunday: Chris and I had a major sleep in this morning…like, 10am… I was grateful for the chance to just sleep and snuggle and talk about the house. This afternoon I went for a great 11km slow run along the water and I was grateful to come back home and enjoy the wind down with Chris before Moving Week begins!
Also this week:
- The cupcake experiments of last weekend yielded these sweet results
- I loved working with Medibank on their Warm Up recipe book – and this week they are sharing the four recipes I contributed! Snuggle in and get cooking!
Okay my dear readers, what are you grateful for this week? What have you got cooking in your kitchen?
