Nourished Life Gratitude List 2015 – Week Thirty-Three

I think we should have four day work weeks every week. I could do with a little break on Wednesday, it certainly left me motivated for Thursday and Friday this week. Daydreams aside, this week was really wonderful. I feel like we hit our stride at home and everything just worked. There was a lot to be grateful for in this week’s Nourished Life Gratitude List 2015 – Week Thirty-Three:wk 33 mantraMonday: Today I went for a run in the morning and then stopped in to see my specialist on the way home. Unfortunately I need to go back in for some more iron therapy, but I am grateful that I have healthcare providers who take such good care of me and make sure I get what I need.

Tuesday: Tonight I received the following message from my sweetheart nerd: ‘My brethren have given me access to the portal where the might shall beg for mercy. In the world where ability with a mouse and keyboard is mightier than any muscle. It is the chosen land where I thrive…Onward to the internet!!!!’. Yes. We finally have the internet at home again. I am grateful that my sweet man can enjoy the land of his people once again and that I can finally blog from the comfort of our new lounge!wk 33 strawberriesWednesday: Today was People’s Day at the EKKA and our Brisbane Show Holiday! I made good use of my midweek weekend and started the day with a run, made and shot three recipes for a new magazine article, and then went to the movies to see ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ with Mum, Jess, and Chris. We had such a great time and I was grateful to end the day feeling like I had made the most of the whole day. It’s a true blessing when you love every minute of the day from beginning to end. Also, Chris took some new profile pictures for me and I was so grateful and surprised to discover his hidden talent behind the camera! I’m grateful that he supports me, and my passion for the blog, and will help me whenever I ask.wk 33 portraitThursday: We had a pretty quiet office today with a lot of people out or on training, and I really enjoyed the camaraderie between my colleagues and I as we got our work done with plenty of laughter and jokes sprinkled in for good measure. I was grateful tonight too for an interesting documentary on the Amish. I am fascinated by their way of life.

Friday: Tonight Chris and I got down to some serious planning for our holiday – it’s coming up so soon! And yes, I am totally counting down the weeks! I am grateful that we have the opportunity to go on an adventure together and I can’t wait for all the exciting moments that await us!wk 33 saladSaturday: This morning Mum and I had breakfast at the local cafe (the best chai latte I’ve ever had) and then went for a girl’s morning shopping trip! We had fun trying on some new clothes and gathering the last things Mum needed before she and Dad head off to Singapore (tomorrow morning!). I even managed to find some new things. While we were saving up for the house I didn’t buy any new clothes so it felt good to treat myself a little. After my great morning with Mum I went for a run and then spent the afternoon doing the last bit of unpacking and organising and made Chris a big roast chicken dinner. I was grateful for an absolutely wonderful Saturday spent with two of my favourite people.

Sunday: I had a big sleep in this morning and then spent the morning hours pottering around making Chris cupcakes for work. I was grateful for a slow, sun-soaked start to the morning – and for surprising myself with a 9.5km run this afternoon! wk 33 sunday lunch

  1. Amy! Sooo glad you have internet again! YAY! Welcome back 🙂
    Did you know that Matt and I went to college in Amish country? Matt grew up down the street from a huge Amish farm (I actually work down the road from the same farm), and it’s not uncommon for us to encounter horse & buggies on the road on a daily basis. Maybe we will see some while you’re here!
    I LOVE your new picture, and I’m quite impressed by Chris’ photography skills! You’re teaching him well 😉
    Glad it sounds like you’re settling into your new house pretty well. I hope you’re thoroughly enjoying your new kitchen!

    • That is so interesting! I am just fascinated by their way of life too 🙂
      He’s got some hidden talents this man of mine for sure! I’ve already lined him up for a few more portraits. I had to bribe him with cake. I’m okay with that 😉

  2. Lovely profile pick Amy. Chris did good. My husband is like “off with her head”, so no photography duties for him. I took myself to see “man from uncle” on a sneaky mid-week trip to the cinemas. I like it more than I though I would.
