New Beginnings

Monday, February 18, 2013

I have always loved Mondays and today is no exception. We are given new blessings each day but Monday's blessings seem to me to be doubly good because we have not only a new day but also a new week! Included in my blessings today: a new finch feeder and seed that DH bought me last week... I have already seen my first breakfast customer this morning! Secondly, I have a new week of water aerobics classes to attend. WooHoo!! Thirdly, the days are getting longer...I saw light coming in around my window shades before the alarm went off. (For those of you scientific minds like my husband, yes I do realize that all days are composed of 24 hours, but I like to say that the days are getting longer.) Fourthly, we are now using a new food journal on the kitchen counter. We are planning menus and writing them on the calendar for the week. No more will we say "What do you want for dinner?" because it will already be written on the calendar for the week! Those are four of my blessings this morning....what are you thankful for today?

    I like the way you think. Your DH is so sweet for buying the feeder and food. Any pictures? I love the days when it stays lighter longer. I look forward to it as well!

    Lovely blog! I will look at Mondays differently now, such a great approach, thank you!!!
    My blessings today are that yesterday I discovered Nordic Walking and loved it! That is another sport I can do and enjoy despite being obese. Woohoo!
    Then another blessing today is reading my wonderful Sparkfriends' comments on my new blog and realizing once more how precious they are.

    How lovely to be thankful!! I, too, have so many things to be thankful for - the list is too great to write.
    I agree, the days are getting longer. Yes, each day has 24 hours, but this time of year brings more daylight and I love that!! Spring is just around the corner!!
    I hope you have a blessed week!!

    Great list - I think you've transitioned into retirement very well, and I'm sure your husband is really happy to have you around more.

    I am thankful for my family (today is Family Day in Ontario and several other Canadian provinces); my Spark Friends; our cat Duchess and Sophie, the neighbours' cat we're minding; my health... I could go on and on. Life is wonderful, and I am grateful every single day!
