Ten Things of Thankful, Week 23/2019

Ten Things of Thankful, Week 23/2019

So I proudly join the TToT-community again. It’s an anniversary, because TTOT turned six. Let’s see what I can contribute this week:

  • I am thankful for every host of the TTOT, past and present, that they make this blog hop possible. It surely takes a lot of time and dedication.
  • I found a new recipe for making carrots we both like. I didn’t know adding honey can make such a big difference.
  • Our cat Jackie was very cuddly this week. I enjoyed this very much, of course!
  • We had a few warm days, and I was able to wear a dress for the first time this year. It sure felt great!
  • On Monday I was very thankful for our trainee therapist. She really helped me with my current project (I took over weaving a basket another client started but didn’t finish).
  • On Tuesday I realized something very important about myself in therapy (I am often too hard on myself, and that doesn’t help at all).
  • On Wednesday enjoyed a therapy free and quiet day.
  • On Thursday we were just two patients in our relaxation group, so we enjoyed a session that was made just for us.
  • My husband started his holiday on Friday, and it’s always nice to have him around.
  • On Saturday I treated my husband to lunch in a greek fast food restaurant. We enjoyed it, and I didn’t have to cook – a big win-win!

  1. Thanks for linking up again with the TToT; it’s always great to see you here!
    It’s amazing what an impact one little ingredient can make to a recipe. Kind of like life, I guess–one person can make a big impact!
    I think that many, if not most, women are too hard on themselves. Glad you were able to have an “a-ha” moment in therapy.
    Enjoy the warmer weather, and having your husband around while he’s on holiday!

  2. We love carrots here too. There is also a carrot recipe with brown sugar and it’s very good.

    Having hubby around and going out to eat is a great treat. Okay wearing a dress for the first time this year is a win-win too.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

  3. I love Greek food and going out (and not having to cook) is something I’m always thankful to be able to do. I recently started therapy again and am having some „ah-ha“ moments too. I’ll have to try adding honey to carrots – my son doesn’t enjoy very many vegetables but he loves honey so maybe?? Fingers crossed! We had a lovely warm day yesterday although it’s cold today. I’m looking forward to more warm ones!

  4. sounds like a chillin’ kinda week*
    Always good to see you here at the TToT.
    Kristi does in fact do an amazing job of ‘keeping the lights on’ in the TToT clubhouse.

    Have an excellent week!

    *sorry for the probably-hopelessly-out-of-date-slang… sounds right, though


  5. What a wonderful week! Restaurant food is always a treat, for so many reasons (mine usually include not having to clear up after!)
    Taking care of a blog hop is a big job and I am endlessly thankful that Kristi has taken on the role and does it so very well.

  6. Viola, I love how you have faithfully continued to share in the TToT link-up each week, and that you have come so far with your life and find joy and thankfulness in the simple things that each day brings, just as I do. Isn’t it amazing how affection from a furkid can make your whole day or cheer you up if you feel down? And yes, I love those no-cooking nights when Papa Bear and I enjoy good food out! I think we all could learn to b less hard on ourselves, we tend to be privately far more critical than we are of others. Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself of some of the things I do right, and like you, how far I’ve come from the person I used to be! I know you are delighted for the warmer weather and the ability to continue those lovely long walks in the countryside, dogs in tow. I wish you all the blessings the Universe has to give, it makes me smile to see you feeling content! XO


    1. Writing a list of thankfuls is something I would recommend to everybody. Because there is always something 😀 And it’s a valuable tool when it comes to battling depression.
      I hope the universe blesses you with a lot of good things as well! xx

  7. I see Sandee mentioned the carrots with brown sugar recipe. My mom fixed cooked whole carrots and then sprinkled them with some brown sugar and butter and baked them in the oven until the sugar and butter caramelized. It was one of those things we ate only at special times, like Christmas or Thanksgiving.
    I don’t think we have any Greek fast food restaurants, but I have seen some food carts in the area that serve Greek food. Yummy!
    It sounds it is time to dig out the summer clothes. 🙂

  8. Aw sounds like quite a lot of positives, and I’m glad you’ve had some warmer weather there. It’s currently very cold here, pouring down and flooding, I think the summer doesn’t want to visit the UK this year. How long does your husband have for his holidays? I hope you both have a lovely week 🙂

    1. We are still waiting for consistent warm weather, but after the last long and hot summer I’ll take it. My husband has this and the next week off. So far we are taking it easy.
      I hope you have a wonderful week!

  9. I am writing this with my cat, Nora Pearl, snuggled against my leg. (This came just after the kittens turned over a table and dumped books, magazines and a lamp on the floor!) What a lovely list! Hope you and your husband enjoy your time together!
