Sunday Gratitude – May 3, 2015

What an absolutely glorious week-end!  So beautiful I cannot even remember if the beginning of the week was nice or not!

It was a fairly busy week with lots of fun activities but also moments of just sitting with a book (one must sometimes force one’s self to do that, ya know!)  Played with cupcakes and icing, played with make-up and played in the dirt.

Gratitude List

  1. So thankful Mick was such an organized guy.  “His” shed was a jigsaw puzzle with all the pertinent pieces placed “just so”.  I was able to take out the BBQ, table, chairs, etc. all by myself and place them in their appropriate places.  Am now able to have an outdoor dinner party!

  2. As mentioned earlier this week, it was my Mary Kay launch, which went well; and, our little team got together so we can better prepare our .  Feeling like it won’t be such a hurdle.

  3. Made cupcakes for Cathy (36!) which were well-received.  She took the time to send me a note to let me know that she wished I could hear the compliments.  Well, that is all I needed! xo

  4. I worked in the gardens all week-end.  Well, not ALL week-end but a good portion of it and most of the left-over leaves and such have been cleared away.  Starting to look nice and tidy!  Iain helped out in the veggie garden, working hard to remove the remaining wild grasses ~ those suckers go deep and tangle together and do not want to let go.  (Ugh.  I hated those!  Sorry Mick…)

  5. I have made a few friends through the blogosphere.  I never expected this to happen.  I was just putting my stuff out there to see if what I had to say would resonate with anyone out there.  Well, somehow, I got more than that.  Real friendships have emerged through all the bantering and discussions and laughs.  I am truly blessed! xoxo to you all!

  1. Any week where you can make great cupcakes, play in the dirt and make great friends is a very good week…sort of like the kind of week a child might have….:) and wouldn’t we all like to be children again if only for a short time.

    • Ha! Thanks Paul. Every year we feel the snow will never leave and before we know it, the flowers are blooming, our hands are in the dirt and we’re sitting by the pool, enjoying the sunshine!

    • Indeed! There is always that feeling of starting something new when you have a garden! Thanks Jenanita!

  2. A good list indeed. Start planning that outdoor dinner party. Of course I’m trying to figured out if you made 36 cupcakes for Cathy to celebrate a birthday or that you made cupcakes for Cathy who happens to a 36. 😉

    • Actually, when she ordered the 36 cupcakes and a fruitcake (which I forgot to mention), she didn’t give me a reason. It sounded like there was an event at the firehouse where she volunteers and the others were to be shared at her regular job. Only when she picked them up did she tell me her birthday was the next day! Sneaky woman…

        • She was so funny… she asked me if I make it outside of Christmas… I can make it any time! Not bad for someone who hates fruitcake; it’s the second one she ordered.
          Top o’ the morning to you, Frank!

          • They are calling for a high of 26C (79F)! More garden work and if my timing’s good, I’d like to go to the Jean-Talon Market, to my favourite stand “Birri” to pick up some veg and seeds; then I have a meal to prepare for my weekly customer and finally my weekly MK meeting!
            And you? Big day? Is the Cincinnati weather being just as nice?

          • Seems like you have a wonderful day ahead. Cincinnati has a touch of summer … but hey – we’ll take it. Errands for me today, maybe some writing, and a dance lesson.

          • I hear you! It would be nice to have a sunny Mother’s Day this year. We’ve frozen our butts off for the past 3-4!

          • Sunday is too far away to trust the weather people (they say a high of 20C with chance of showers… we’ll see!)

  3. Love this, and I am glad you took the time to find us, and be persistent, and generally be a wonderful human being with an enormous sense of humor. Keep rocking, Dale. We need you.

    • Aww. Thanks, Janet. We find each other, we are authentic, we click and we all rock! We need each other… 😀

  4. It has just started raining here and I was just about to plant some petunias, begonias, pansies, geraniums, and dahlias in pots with copper strips around them to stop the snails from causing havoc. Darn the British weather!
    My friend has been here all day (when it wasn’t raining) and it started the moment she left. I was also beating her at scrabble until she scored 70 in one turn, right near the end of the game.
    So glad to have met you blogging, Dale, and always enjoy chatting with you, although I wish we lived nearer to each other and could share a few meals together, as we both enjoy creative cookery.

    • Darn weather indeed! I’ve been stuck inside preparing a meal for my customer and it’s 28 outside!
      70 on one turn! Remind me not to play with you!
      I am very glad to have met you too! We’ll just have to cook together when one of us crosses the pond!

  5. Hello Dale, I always enjoy your list! Thanks for sharing!
    May you feel safe. May you feel happy. May you feel healthy. May you live with ease.

    • Thank you Carol! I am well-surrounded and feel quite safe and happy! Too much ease and I’ll be bored! 😉
