So Much!

I have so much to be thankful for today... here are lots of photos for you!

My friend Rosemary ("Spindlerose") came for a visit! She is on the left, I'm on the right. We went out for Chinese food, Starbucks coffee, and Godiva chocolate - what a day!

This is a little Tea Fairy from my good friend, Kary. She is just adorable - all sparkly! Just like Kary!

These are the new ice skates I got on sale for $35. My husband plays and refs hockey, and is always after me to go skating with him on his lunch hour. My doctor says aerobic exercise is good for FMS. As long as I don't fall, this will be a good way to get a no-impact workout! (I hope I won't fall!)

This is an abandoned hummingbird nest I found in a bush. Instead of walking my dogs, I was letting them take me for a walk one day, meandering here and there in the yard. I was surprised to see this nest - I never noticed it before! Sometimes it's good to be led, rather than to plow ahead with your own purpose. Sometimes you just have to go where you're pulled, and surprises will happen!


Projects

This week, I turned this:

... into this:

... and this (hopefully) helpful website, too.


I also turned this:

... into this:

Doing my first inkleweaving project and being able to make a website to help others, and completing a homemade coneholder all by myself (well, with only a tiny bit of Jeff's help) felt really, really good! Major accomplishments... I'm happy.


A Bit More Gratitude...

Finally, I'm grateful for these things:

That poor Jeff tried to help me with my first coneholder (which didn't quite work out). The poor guy drilled a hole in his finger and now can't play cello for a few weeks. It was nice of him to try to help me. I hope he heals up quickly!

That we tried a new wine - a Malbec from deLorimier. I have never tasted a Malbec before and it was fantastic - somewhere between a Merlot and a Zinfandel. Amazing.

That I ordered the Cheryl Richardson Self-Care Cards with my free Amazon.com points. They are a wonderful jumping-off point for meditation and self-reflection. Beautiful artwork.


Thank you for visiting. I hope your life this week feels as blessed as mine. Wish me luck skating! Please TAG the TAGboard to say hello!
