I refuse to let this weekend get me down. I am writing this before I even get out of bed so that I promise that to myself. I’ve got a great day planned today- Joshua’s baseball game and after that a fun birthday party to attend! Tomorrow, I plan to make homemade shampoo. That’s going to be fun. I’ve been looking forward to trying that out. I’m not going to let this weekend get me down. It’s going to be a Super Saturday today. Stay tuned, the saga continues.
And here we go- the baseball game was great. Joshua scored 2 runs. We won the game. The birthday party was fun. Afterward, Joshua and I had a lunch date. Bagels and smoothies. I bought myself an extra treat, a sugar cookie.
Now I’m back home. It’s whatever. But I noticed my mood shifted as soon as I walked through the door. I promised I would make today a super Saturday. I don’t want my mood to start dipping. I have an idea! I will go out and buy the ingredients for my homemade shampoo. That will get me out and about. I’ll take Josh with me because he’s my big little helper.
There. I’m back to awesome again. Now if only I can get my butt off this chair.
I’m back. I got my butt off the chair. Not to go to the store but to take pictures. It was relaxing and uplifting. I took pictures of the jasmine flowers and succulents in the backyard. It was also good exercise because I had to get in some strange positions to get these shots.
I woke up to the sounds of birds chirping. One of my favorite things. The sun was shining. Another one of my favorite things. I went outside to water my succulents and noticed more jasmine flowers along the backyard fence, just like last year. My husband was in the garage, gathering some things for work. He said he planted the jasmine flowers back there and also outside in the front, in the same place just like last year. Hearing this made me so happy.
The jasmine flowers are planted right along the front driveway. I love that I open my car door when I first arrive home and the first thing I smell is the smell of jasmine and first thing I see are beautiful white jasmine flowers. I was so happy this morning that I gave my husband a big hug right in the garage.
It’s Friday today. Last day of the work week. I brought two of my dark chocolate peanut butter cups to work to share with friends. Sharing my homemade sweet treats. Another one of my favorite things to do. It was also “Matching Fridays” at work today. Today’s theme was Flower skirt or shirt. I wore my flower dress.
My T.G.I.Friday list to be grateful for:
Holding hands with my husband at night and then hugs in the morning
Holding and cuddling my son when he first wakes up
Waking my daughter up and greeting her good morning, every morning in her room
Sharing treats with my friends
Tomorrow is baseball and Joshua will be “back catcher”. I love watching him play baseball.
Preparing the baseball snacks for the baseball players tomorrow. I love the looks on the boys’ face when they open their bags of snacks.
Today has been an up and down day, but holding steady at up. Meditation helps. Reciting my favorite things helps. This gratitude journal helps.
