Ten Things of Thankful, Week 16/2019

Ten Things of Thankful, Week 16/2019


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

  • Monday I had my weekly single OT session with an intern. It was very interesting to hear what someone new had to say. I am sure he will become a good therapist and am glad that I was allowed to be part of his journey.
  • I am working on a basket made from rattan in OT. On Monday I decorated it with wooden pearls, and I liked it very much. Often I don’t like what I make and see only the little mistakes (darn perfectionism), but so far the basket turns out great.
  • On Tuesday I went to group OT, but something went wrong and they had forgotten to call me and tell me it was cancelled. But the intern stepped in, I and could work on my basket for another hour. I like basket-weaving so much, it makes me feel good, I can’t get enough of it.
  • Wednesday was a quiet day, and I enjoyed this very much. This week was another hard one, and I needed this.
  • Thursday was relaxation OT group, and it helped me a lot. I felt much better and calmer afterwards.
  • Like last week, the dogs took very good care of me. They always do what they can to cheer me up. I can’t say who rescues whom – maybe we saved them from a hard life on the streets, but they help me so much as well.
  •  My husband doesn’t have to work on Easter. This is not a given, and having more time together is always nice.
  • I made plans for a new DIY-project, I want to make a blanket for our guest bed. We will see how it turns out. But making plans always lifts my mood.
  • The quiet easter days were like balm for my soul. It helped a lot that I was with my husband all the time as well. He always has a calming effect on me.
  • We had wonderful warm, bright days. The days are so long already, it was almost like summer. Of course it’s too early for that, but it surely was nice.

  1. sounds like a good week, even with appointments mixups (grat item three)… but I always like the items that relate how the dogs have been. they are true anchors in a world that sometimes doesn’t seem to look and make sure we’re safely buckled in before it lurches down the road
    have a good week.

  2. I have never attempted basket weaving, but I can imagine that it would be fun to do.
    Having some quiet times and time to make plans for a new DIY project are great. Are you going to sew or knit or crochet a blanket?
