Ten Things of Thankful, Week 11/2019

Ten Things of Thankful, Week 11/2019

So I proudly join the TToT-community again. Let’s see what I can contribute:

  • This week was quiet and peaceful, just what I needed. My energy levels got up, and I felt really good most of the time.
  • Because of this, I got more things done. Our fridge hasn’t been cleaned for months, but now it sparkles again.
  • We got a new dryer. It works wonderfully, and I got used to it immediately!
  • Our washer and dryer are in a utility room in the basement. This room was pure chaos. I am not finished, but after cleaning and rearranging for two hours, it looks so much better.
  • Cleaning the utility room helped me to realize how much better I am now, compared to the two years before. When I was really bad, we had to hire someone to clean our house once a week. Now I am mostly able to do this myself, and this makes me feel proud. I finally put away the things our cleaning lady used, and I hope they will stay there for good.
  • On Sunday, my husband and his brother went fishing early in the morning. I woke up later, realized I had really nothing to do, had a wonderful long breakfast and went out with our dogs. On this walk I noticed all the little signs spring is really coming. It was wonderful.
  • After they finished fishing, my husband and his brother came to our house. They were in a good mood, because they caught some trouts. We all sat in the living room and talked for two hours. It was very relaxing.
  • My parents left for a two week vacation to Andalusia (Spain). So far they are having a great time, and I am so happy for them.
  • Went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned and checked. Everything is alright, and that’s a very good thing.
  • Bought some daffodils for our living room. They are so bright, they light up the whole room. Like tulips, they are a very welcome sign for spring.

    1. That’s great. I am sometimes very reluctant to post my list, because mostly nothing big happened. But to find joy in the small things is key to happiness in my opinion.


  2. I like the ‘rearranging and straightening out’ a room more than cleaning… it’s the kind of thing that you, like, see and it stays fun (a lot longer than just cleaning…lol)
    Sounds like a good weekend, but then, there was a dog there (lol)… they are very much perfect companions.

  3. Having a quiet peaceful week in which to do a little cleaning and rearranging when you actually had the energy to do those things makes for a great week. Topping off the week with some daffodils to bring a bit of cheer into your home is perfect. I hope you will see even more signs of spring this coming week.
