I thought I'd take advantage of a quiet Saturday morning and keep on top of my thankfuls.
Day 20 (March 7): Thursdays are one of my favorite days, so I generally feel better on them. Someone mistook me for being a lot younger than I am, which made me happy, and I had a nice conversation with a coworker while picking some of the Daphne blossoms. Oh and some checks came in the mail this day, and I was happy to be able to deposit them with my phone, since my bank is across town.
Day 21 (March 8): Friday! TGIF to the bajillionth power. I actually felt pretty grouchy, tired and headachey all of Friday, so I was very thankful it was the end of the week. In the evening I wasn't ready to go back to my apartment, so I shopped around at the good Target and had a pleasant exchange with the cashier. I also felt a renewed motivation about some aspects of life.
PS The picture at the top of this entry was taken Friday morning as the fog was burning off by my office.
Here are some general thankfuls that don't necessarily pertain to a specific day, but I don't want to forget:
Daily Set and Quiddler: Maybe I've mentioned this, but my friend Dan and I exchange "S&Q" scores each day. (The New York Times puts out a puzzle each day--Set is here, Quiddler is here.) I'm grateful that such puzzles exist, and that I have a friend who wants to compare scores with me. It's a fun little part of my routine, and we've been doing it for probably 4 or 5 years now. (And for the record, Dan generally wins Set, and I used to mostly win at Quiddler, but lately it's evening out. Dan's a natural at pretty much any game.)
Walk It Out: I've recently been getting back into my Wii game that I reviewed here. I love this and hope that one day they'll come out with another.
Lunch breaks: The other day I was thinking about how good it is to have a break in my workday when I can leave and regroup. I usually have an audiobook to listen to, and sometimes I go home, do a little shopping, run errands, or just sit in my car and read or play some phone games. I don't always leave work, but I do at least go to my car, which is like my sanctuary at times. I just find that I'm a happier person when I have that little break and can change up the scenery. I sometimes feel self-conscious about hanging out in my car, but it's like my home away from home! :) Does anyone else feel that way?
Okay, this post is long enough! Thanks for reading it all, if you did.
