After giving thanks
Friday, November 23, 2007
Yesterday was a very nice day. I went to visit my parents, ate a lot, but didn't go completely overboard. I feel like I ate more than I actually did, but I added it all up and I was in my range. Still, I am going to make sure I get some extra exercise today. I didn't exercise at all yesterday. I drove over 4 hours, but no exercise.
I felt truly grateful and thankful yesterday. Deep inside, I felt, and still feel, full of thanks and gratitude. Today I feel very blessed: I have the whole day to myself. No shopping for me, I do not like crowds or frantic bargain shopping. Instead I have had a blissfully lazy morning and am going for a long walk with my dog in a few minutes. It's very sunny and blue skies today, even if it is cold. Then I am going to do some housecleaning, or home blessings, as Flylady says. I like calling them blessings. I have a lot to do, actually, and I feel like I should rake some leaves. I hate raking but miraculously I feel better than I have in a long time with my shoulders and neck. I know raking would exacerbate those things but I might say what the heck and do it anyway. Besides, it needs to be done and if I don't do it it doesn't get done. And leaf pickup is next week. Well, we'll see. One thing at a time.
