Gratitude: finding happiness amongst the mundane
Today I am grateful for bed picnics because that’s how we’ve spent our Friday night together. We made a great big share platter of yummy antipasto for dinner; it was so good! Triple cream Brie, rosemary & sea salt crackers, stuffed baby bell peppers, kalamata olives in balsamic, semi-sundried tomatoes and feta, creamy roasted capsicum dip, Jarlsberg cheese slices, and smoked leg ham. Yum!
In the middle of winter, when it’s reached a maximum temperature of only 11 degrees centigrade all day, there’s no better time to have a bed picnic with a movie. The rain was beating down outside but the house was toasty warm. The food was delish, and the movie (Contagion) was great, but best of all was spending my Friday evening with my little family; just me and my girl and our two furkids (Missy & Madison).
Today I am grateful for all this empty space around us. This gorgeous cottage has cows for neighbours and open fields, and the closest town is still another 10mins down the highway. The air is fresh and the skies are enormous and filled with stars and inky nighttime.
All this space around helps me get perspective inside my head and makes my thoughts so much easier to hear. It’s like there’s finally no static when I’m tuning into my own radio station. Suddenly life is less complex. Time slows down and I am mindful in the present.
Simple things, like taking a bath, become bliss.
Today I am super grateful for online shopping because tonight I did all of my grocery shopping in my pj’s, and the whole time I was sitting in bed with my cat on my lap and my girl by my side.
If it weren’t for the online supermarket I would’ve had to go to an actual supermarket before work tomorrow. Ewwww!!! Especially since it was only 4 degrees Celsius this morning!! Who wants to get out of bed early for that??? NOT ME, that’s for sure!!
So, all going well, the delivery guy will be delivering all my groceries right onto my kitchen bench in two days; right in time before we go away for the weekend.
Yay! 3 days in a cottage on the coast with the love of my life. I’m so excited!!
Just me and my girl.
