I have 3 random photos to share with you today . . . Thanks to…
To honor the month of November, my Thursday posts will be all about the things I am thankful for. I want to preface that by saying that I’m not going to be listing the obvious things you’d expect, like Dale and the kids and my family and job and health. Instead, I’m going to be sharing the small things, the every day things, the things that might get overlooked if I didn’t really think about them.
- I am thankful for my public speaking ability. While my preference is to prepare remarks ahead of time, I am often asked to say something without any advance notice. This actually happened to me last Friday at our Veteran’s Day parade when I had to unexpectedly give a speech on behalf of the Board of Selectmen. I’m amazed and truly grateful that this just doesn’t bother me and I don’t get nervous at all. Side note, someone told me that my spontaneous remarks were better than any of the pre-written speeches given by others.
- I am thankful for my planning skills. I definitely don’t like to leave things to the last minute and always feel better when I have an action plan whether it’s for a project at work or a holiday dinner at home. Yesterday I sat down and made a list of all the things I need to do for Thanksgiving and then I took that list and fit every item into my calendar. This will help me stay on track and will make for an overall more relaxing approach. Side note, I think I might try Ina Garten’s Make Ahead Turkey this year. I love the idea of having the mess of carving the turkey all cleaned up well before dinner is served.
- I am thankful that I made the time last weekend to swap out my closet, removing my summer clothes (I have a lot of summer dresses!) and putting in my winter things. I had been putting it off (mostly due to plain old procrastinating but also because we’ve had decidedly unseasonal weather) but on Sunday I decided to just do it and I’m glad to have all my cardigans back in my closet. Side note, as part of Style School I’m supposed to do a closet curation this week. Wish me luck!
And that’s all for this week. If you wrote a post for today please add your link below.
