slowly adjusting to the new routines of the school year
wondering how my neighbors manage to keep the flowers going so beautifully in their gardens. Feeling both envious and grateful.
entering the final phase of our kitchen remodel... (and the end can't come soon enough)
finding an amazing amount of satisfaction in little details, like putting up hooks to store baseball caps
being reminded of how hard it is for me to ask for -- or receive -- help
feeling excited about the plot twists my novel is taking, and wishing i had more time to work on it
smiling at the happy flowers dropped off on my doorstep by a friend and feeling blessed
thinking about ways i can beef up my "support team" as i look for ways to reduce stress and increase ease in our daily routines
happy to be incorporating more exercise into my days, now that the kids are in school
unreasonably happy about my brand new fuchsia tennies
doing load after load of laundry in my brand new machines that just got installed
appreciating my parents and their reliable presence in my life, always there for me and my children
eating healthy lunches this week, thanks to the encouragement of a friend
enjoying putting my son's room back together after a mini-remodel
listening to friends, and being listened to. Both are such a blessing.
feeling lucky that I live in an area blessed with so many expert resources. It's good to know that whatever help is needed, I can surely find it here.
grateful to those of you who read my blog and hopeful that it's resonating with you out there.
