Today is Friday and that means we get to look over the past week and recognize what was a blessing in our lives whether big or small. Sharing them makes it fun. So join us, won't you? If you need the guidelines, yes there are some, just pop over here first and then join right in.
My kitchen reno has been the blessing that has been the most obvious and foremost in my life this last couple of weeks and while I am sooo loving it and it being on the verge of being finished, I am also tired of mentioning it and I'm sure regular readers are tired of seeing it mentioned so I've made a point of looking for other blessings. There is so much more in life that is beyond material things that I want to make sure I notice. So in no particular order here are mine:
I'm linking because it's a few minutes long but it's amazing to watch. About the 3 1/2 minute mark is unreal. Can't imagine the hours of practice this performance took. It just makes me amazed to watch it.
2. Brief moments to catch snippets of reading time. It's been so busy the last three weeks that these moments have been precious. Reading relaxes me and transports me so even if I can't sit for long periods to read I must have snatches of a few pages here and there throughout the day. I'm finishing up "Secret Life of Bees" which was a summer goal so I'm glad I was able to get that in.
3. An excellent meal at a new to us restaurant. A Vietnamese place. The spring rolls, the noodles, the chicken and the veggies. So delicious, we can't wait to go back! And the company was fun. Thanks to our realtor for introducing us to this little place.
4. Back to home cooking. Yes, I actually said this right on the heals of naming a new restaurant being a favorite. I looove to eat out but between holidays and then no kitchen for 2 weeks immediately afterwards it has been a lot of eating out. Yikes. I'm glad to be back to more of a routine in cooking and the healthier eating I can do at home. And the break on the old bank account is good too.
5. Making it to the gym. I made my "3x a week" commitment. Even in a crazy week. Yay me. So far I'm loving the premise of the half hour circuit workout that Curves adopts. A half hour I can do!
What have been your favorites this week? Are they big and obvious and are they more hidden and to be found like a prize or treasure? Share in a post and join us by linking up. Then take a few moments and visit some of the other participants. It is encouraging reading other's posts too!
