Got a lot done today

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Today I read a Spark People article on gratitude. Although I believe I am a half full kind of girl by nature there are times I do not practice being grateful. So, I think for the rest of the month I will write 3-5 things I am grateful for as suggested in the article.

Today I am grateful that I have a husband who loves me, a family who loves me and generally good health.

I got a lot of cleaning done today. DH worked on the little house today. He has almost got the plumbing run for the bath and washer. I made three dozen cookies and froze for an event at the end of the week.

Tomorrow I will continue my cleaning. I have managed to get behind due to some projects I have been working on.

I have a quilt class Mon-Fri this week. My brother will be arriving next week. I will run out of time to do any cleaning so I wanted to get it done now.

I love fall so I wanted to get my fall decorations up. My quilt fabric is cut out and ready for next week. I find if I do that before class I get a lot more done during class.

    Being grateful for the things and people in our lives is so important, but it's equally important to occasionally remember to be grateful to yourself, for the things YOU do.

    Hope you have a grand time in your quilt class!!

    You ARE busy! No wonder you're tired. I imagine once that plumbing is finished everything will start shaping up rather quickly. That would be nice!

    Don't you love the Fall! I like the light and the weather and the trees. Today we took a drive up to Stanford and I got some labwork done. Walked around there for a couple of miles, then went home and baked. Split brunch with my husband Did some crocheting during the drive up and back. Went thru some old boxes and packed 3 (!) boxes of stuff to shred. Read. Wonderful.

    emoticon Cleaning is almost done-don't you feel good about that!
    Sounds like you are almost ready for next week-hope it all goes well at the quilt class.
    It is great when we step back and look at all we have to be thankful for. I try to do that as I walk. I wish more people would stop and take the time to count their blessings.

    May you have a wonderful week.
