Gratitude Friday

1. Morning walks. With Daylight Savings Time, it’s back to being dark for almost the full walk.

2. Snow day! Not sure if you heard about the “bomb cyclone” storm we had this week. There didn’t end up being more than about 4-6 inches of snow, which isn’t much for here, but the wind made for blizzard like conditions and the whole place shut down. And Spring Break is next week — which means I only have 7.5 weeks of work left at CSU!!!

3. Signs of spring. I’m not in a particular hurry for the seasons to change, but I do love the sound of bird song in the morning and can’t wait to start working in the garden.4. Me. I can’t say I necessarily like this picture of myself (other than the fun Prisma filter), and yet it so accurately reflects where I am in my life right now. I’m looking forward to coming home to myself again.

5. My tiny family. Still my favorite. I can’t wait to hang out with them a bit more next week.

Bonus joy: Tanka bars, hanging out with Mikalina, orange juice, naps, sleeping in, good books (I just finished The Wide Circumference of Love by Marita Golden and am reading The Vegetarian by Han Kang), good TV (they just released Shrill and Catastrophe), good films (yesterday I watched Puzzle and Free Solo), sitting in the sauna when it’s snowing outside, aqua aerobics, Pilates, getting all the laundry done and put away on Friday, a massage, a weekend off from yoga teacher training, crossing a bunch of stuff off my to-do list, a big glass of cold clean water.
