Life has been busy and when my nights are busy doing stuff, my gratitude diaries do not get posted. I still think about it and what I would have posted had I got around to being in front of a computer. So for the last few days, I’m grateful for…
… taking time out to spend time with friends and family. The last few nights I’ve been hanging out with long time friends. I always enjoy this especially when it seems that we aren’t always able to find time to hang out. I am so grateful that we found the time this holiday period.
… trying new things. We went to the tea festival for the first time ever yesterday. I went with the kids and a friend and you never know what to expect when you go to something for the first time. It’s a little scary at first to try something new. I get a little worried taking the kids. But both kids were in good spirits and while we have discovered that the boy is not much of a tea drinker (unless there are sugar cubes in it), we were able to take pictures and explore a part of LA that they had never been before. We also went to a tea room we’d never been before and it made us so grateful for the tea room near our house. The new tea room was not as good as the one that we normally go to so the girl and I are looking forward to our next trip to our regular tea room.
… busy days and quiet days. While the last few days have been busy, I scheduled a very quiet Sunday to end the week with. I knew that having so much time out of the house meant very little sewing time. And without sewing time, I get a little cranky. So I’m grateful for scheduling a slow, quiet, relaxing Sunday dedicated to me and my sewing room. The family fell in line with today’s requirements and pretty much hung out with me. The girl went to take care of her volunteer requirements for the semester so she was out of the house most of the day.
Have a great evening!
