On these cooler evenings, this provided much needed warmth and comfort. It simmered in the slow-cooker all day; nice and easy.
My office mate does nothing but steal my chair to stare out the window.
The sun was out so I opted to sit on the patio for this conference call. I liked the way the sunlight was hitting the succulent pot, and how there was still some rain water stuck between the leaves.
I snuck away from my desk for a midday walk and stumbled upon this at a local park. I wish I had a basketball with me. Looks like fun!
The house, now decorated for the Christmas holiday, feels cozy and, well… like home.
It’s December! Time to break out one of my favorite Christmas songs.
Write yourself a thank you note. Dear me, Thank you for seeing all 30 Days of Gratitude though. I’m not sure what result you wanted, or expected, from doing this but, I’m happy that it has helped to change your perspective on how you spend your time and attention. I hope that you use thisContinue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 30”
Three good things. I’m grateful for family, and for the way that they’re always there even during times when we aren’t physically together. I’m grateful for the way that all of us, in our family, have such different personalities and perspectives and paths that we’re following. I’m grateful for our home, with a solid roofContinue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 29”
Ask someone else what they’re grateful for. This was a good prompt in that it started a good conversation, with my wife, over Thanksgiving Day dinner. Through this, we realized how many of the same things we were grateful for, and how many of the same things we want to try to work for, toContinue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 28”
Compliment a stranger. I scheduled a late grocery delivery because our Thanksgiving Day plans had changed (last minute). Grocery shopping isn’t my favorite thing to do, and the though of going to the store was terrifying considering how busy they would be the day before Thanksgiving. If the store is out of something, someone willContinue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 27”
Sometimes, it’s the simple and familiar sights that bring comfort to me. Like, when you sit down at a table and you’re given the chips and salsa basket, letting you know that good things are coming soon. So sit back and relax.
What’s one thing that would make you happy today? If you can, do it. I went for a drive, today. It’s been a while since I drove around for the sake of driving around. This was a good, relaxing experience as I got to roam around the streets and neighborhoods of Sacramento while listening toContinue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 26”
Write about something that happened in your day that left you feeling satisfied. After work, I started work on some code (part of my final project for a class). The plan was just to get some lines and a basic outline written so that I could come back to it later this week, when IContinue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 25”
Do something nice for someone else today. I didn’t leave the house nor interact with anyone, today. There were times when I thought “I need to go out” but couldn’t come up with anything specific to do. It was a nice, relaxing weekend and I was selfishly enjoying it. In retrospect, I kind of regretContinue reading “30 Days of Gratitude: Day 24”
