Joyful day

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Didn't sleep well last night but what a great day:

- wore my new shirt that I got a great price on
- my pants felt loose
- I said no to a committee invitation
- I had great meals all day and everything was planned
- I had two of my friends write me with recipe successes
- I made a new friend on SP who sent me a goodie (first time for me and ever so glad!)
- I organized all my summer scarves and winter paraphernalia by colour and bought coordinating bins for the front hall closet
- I felt joyful today emoticon

chocolate race

Monday, January 23, 2012

Today was a day where nothing went terribly wrong, but I was slow moving. Lots of talking with people that I don't normally see and that was nice.

Tonight we practiced on the reformer in Pilate's and again it reinforced my decision that this was a good choice for me. Then! when I got home I had an adorable package of sticky notes arrive in the mail for the chocolate race: a larger ginger woman in a green dress and high heels chasing a chocolate bunny yelling "bite me!" Made me smile. Race day is April 28 and I have a goal to beat my best time emoticon

To quote "because life is short, running is hard and chocolate tastes good."

Sunday, January 22, 2012

#1 I slept well last night
#2 I accomplished all of my to do list for this weekend, and actually added more stuff
#3 I planned delicious meals/snacks for every day this week; Jamie Oliver supplemented with SparkPeople Recipes
#4 chickens were on sale for $1.99/lb (woo hoo, beer can chickens)
#5 my celebration flowers are home now and doing exceptionally well! I plucked off the outer layers of the rose petals and now they are good as new. Only the orange daisy didn't survive
#5 our kitchen and hall are kitchen & canning free :)
#6 I'm going to spend time with my sister today and coach her on recipe planning, grocery shopping & cooking meals for her family

    Sounds like you have had a great week! It's so nice that you are willing to share your talent with your sister, too! Keep up the great work and have a fabulous week again.

The core of my joy

Saturday, January 21, 2012

My marriage is blessed - the man I love is the one who loves me, we laugh and are comfortable to talk. We have fun and our life has joy.


almost missed my streak

Friday, January 20, 2012

Just popped out of bed because I remembered I hadn't written down any of my joys.

1. I did a quiet 10 min slow walk with Tai Chi upper body stretches this morning. No blood rush so my tooth didn't throb

2. Our Dean took us out for a delightful lunch! I love Thai food, and then she took us to the chocolatier! It was so nice

3. I had a lovely evening with Steve watching Miss Marple

4. I spent an hour crafting a letter to my Mom tonight with observations about why she might be in conflict and suggestions on how she could make small changes that would help her regain control over her day to day: joy and activity (mental & physical). I can't make her change, but I will support her if she chooses to. I just truly hope it gets her thinking ...
