Gratitude*Monday

I'm joining Taryn at Wooly Moss Roots and several other lovely bloggers in honoring the things for which we've been grateful for throughout the week. A quiet, weekly practice of appreciation and positivity. A time to breath and reflect.

If you would like to join us, just click the image at the bottom of this post.


This Week I am Grateful For:

* Time spent with girl friends, catching up and chatting. Throughout my life, I've had a predominantly male circle of friends, having no patience for the dramatics and cattiness of the majority of women I've known. The way some women want to tear each other apart or act as if their lives are a competition makes me sick to my stomach and so, I typically just avoid female friends. That said, I've taken some baby steps in to giving some of the women I've met down here in to my life and it's been a very good decision; not only do I now have friends who can relate to things my guy friends can't, but they've shown me that not I'm not alone in my hatred of competition and dramatics.

* Good books and wine.

* Brunch made by my awesome hubby! Loaded grits and wine spritzer. Om nom nom! I'm sitting at my desk at work salivating thinking about it.



* Naked toes in the clover that flourishes throughout the backyard.

* Live music and frosty pints.

* Continuing Lughnasadh working at the New Moon and seeing intense, immediate results bringing clarity and a deep sigh of relief.

* Bowling night with my love and some of his coworkers. I'm terrible at bowling but I enjoy it!

* Having the spare pennies necessary to do our first really renovation project in the house and make a space ours. (Post with pictures coming later today.)



* Luna being such a good girl while we took her to the stores with us. A little known fact: a lot of home improvement stores are pet friendly! So we took her to Lowes to get our renovation supplies and then to Petsmart for turtle food and a new toy. She's getting to be a lot more chill with crowds and people in general and no longer seems to need to try to jump on everyone she sees.

* Taking the initiative to sign up for something that scares the living shit out of me. Going to (hopefully) face down these fears and have an amazing time. More on that tomorrow, after I've gotten done, provided the weather holds out. If you're able, send me some calm thoughts and hopes for a safe journey.

  2. I am completely with you on the girlfriends. I too hated all the cattiness and dramatics that went with those relationships. I too have found some like minded women recently and they have become such good friends I would not be without them now. It has taken some getting used to but I am happy to have found them and their wonderful company. It is indeed something to be grateful for, thank you for the reminder.

  3. It feels good to finally find women who inspire you to give them a chance, doesn't it? I'm so glad for you. Naked toes in clover sounds just delightful, but then again you know I've kind of got "a thing" for plants. :-)So glad your Luna is finding her own calmness. I will be sending calm and safe energy.

  4. We have a huge clover patch in our backyard and when my niece was here visiting she found a four leave clover. Years ago so did The Boy. I need one of those fuckers.
