Gratitude Sunday – September 7, 2014

Was another very productive week, I must say! Salsas, apple jellies, painting the dining room… no rest for the wicked, they say!  Feeling satisfied, I say!

It’s frankly amazing how we can load so much into one week yet feel there is so much more we could have done.  Seriously, what is up with that?  How have we managed to guilt ourselves into believing there is no time for “down time”?

Pffft… I say!  I’m off to read my book!

Gratitude List

  1. I am so happy we have painted our dining room RED!  (Pictures will follow when we’ve finished putting up our prints and stuff….)

  2. I appreciate having a friend with an orchard who lets me know what’s ready for picking so I can fill bags to my heart’s content… more jellies coming!  Pears! Crab Apples, Apples! Oh my!

  3. Buying the ingredients necessary to make salsas and jams and jellies and actually doing them within a great timeframe.  It was go-go-go but so satisfying!

  4. Having followers of my blog who leave me interesting and thought-provoking comments makes me feel like I have a voice.  I love it!

  5. Choosing a paint colour from a swatch, applying it and saying YES!  Exactly what we wanted!  (This feels like a cheat and goes with no. 1…)

  6. Spending time with each of my sons on a one-to-one basis brings me much joy and allows us to get just that much closer (not easy when they are 14 and 16!)
