This week has been up and down. I actually wrote a gratitude post yesterday but it was barely clinging to the positive side. PMS and a change in the weather made Wednesday a horrible day, clouding over the whole week.
I am grateful that by Thursday I felt the mood pass along with the rain. So strange to have my emotions mirror the weather, but this week that us exactly how it went.
Full of energy and sunshine on Monday.
Warm on Tuesday with breezes blowing in.
Clouds and rain by Wednesday.
A clearing on Thursday.
In a week of ups and downs I am grateful for the simple things that kept me going.
Great books and staying up way too late reading until I cannot keep my eyes open.
The monthly resupply of magazines on my ipad as all my subscriptions update.
Great TV viewing.
Flowers everywhere in so many colours and varieties.
The first big butterfly dancing around me as I sat and wrote on our back deck – early Spring is here ahead of schedule, the temperatures have been in the mid to high 20s all week.
Back to wearing Birkenstocks. (although still cold at night, warm socks and long PJs)
Laying on a picnic blanket with my dog and looking up for a different view of the massive tree in our yard.
Babysitting for my friend’s new puppy while she is at work.
Dinner out with friends.
Burning beautiful melts while I worked this week. Remembering to do this!
The delicious smell after I blow out the match.
An abundance of strawberries and knowing we will be gorging on them for months to come.
King size bed – comfortable even with extra guests like a dog one night and a 10 year old another.
What are you grateful for this week?
Find your simple,
Linking up with Kylie for 52 weeks of grateful.
