It’s Thursday, right? I mean, I know it is but between vacation last week and a weird schedule this week, well, I’ve sort of lost track of what day it is. That’s acceptable and understandable while on vacation but not so much when you’re supposed to maybe be certain places at certain times. Anyway. It’s Thursday for sure (I actually double checked) and today I’ve got Three Things I’m feeling grateful for right now that I want to share with you.
- I started a gratitude journal. I’ve done this before but this time I think it’s going to stick because I’ve set it up to be very simple and fast. Basically, it’s a small journal on my kitchen table and while I wait for my coffee to brew each morning I sit there and quickly right down 5 things I’m grateful for right at that moment. So far I’ve reflected on the previous day and written things that relate to that but that’s not a rule and could change at any moment. The only rule I really have about this journal is that it has to be quick and it doesn’t have to be deep.
- On Monday Dale helped me to move some furniture around and reorganize my craft room. The first thing I did was take a good hard look at everything I have in there and I got rid of stuff I just don’t need and/or use anymore. We then moved around some book cases and other furniture and brought in a new table for my Cricut. I think it’s going to be a great arrangement for working up there and I’m excited about the space for the first time in a long time. Dale is going to paint and I’m going to have my sewing machine table and another small bureau painted and we will get a new light fixture, too. I’m taking photos and documenting it all as we go along so there will be a full post about this when it’s finished.
- The start of the new school year always gets me excited for setting goals and I am working on setting some up for September and October now. Some of this I alluded to on Tuesday and some is just other stuff that’s not big but still important. It feels great to get things down on paper so that I don’t forget about what I want to do and how I’m going to do it.
What are you grateful for right now?
