Gratitude

10 things that made me happy {Week 33}

What a week! A short one but an overwhelming one for me. I’m still figuring out my thoughts and feelings around things but at the same time, I’m ready to reflect on things that made me happy from 8th April till 14th April 2017.

Enjoying the beautiful autumn weather now that the rain has stopped

Exercising every day this week {Well, Monday to Friday, at least!}

Book club on Wednesday night — less chat about the book but lovely conversation for over 2 hours

Baking after a very long time and having my work family enjoy it

Spending some time on Sunday by the lake reading

Reading a beautiful book of poetry {Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur}

Having a short work week {Gotta love Easter time for the long weekend!}

Driving  up north and checking out some new areas

Spending time in nature by the sea

Writing poetry on the blog and in my journal and enjoying it

I’m looking forward to continuing to enjoy the long weekend – catch up on sleep, reading, writing, commenting on A to Z blogs, and of course, Netflix.

Have you got plans for the long weekend? How has your week been?

Do share!

    Sounds like you have been quite busy! I’m loving the extra-long weekend, its a chance to catch my breath and have some much needed down time 🙂

    I love that you are taking advantage of the beautiful scenery to get outside, smell the fresh air, and read.

    I’m with you… Loving the long weekend, the break in the rain and all the Netflix my heart desires! I saw your beautiful bake on Instagram, I bet it tasted as amazing as it looked! Wouldn’t it be nice if every weekend was four days long?!

    Sanchie, I haven’t forgotten about you. My week has just been swallowed up (what else is new? Lol)
    I hope you had a lovely and LONG Easter weekend. I didn’t nap like I wanted to but mine was still nice and we spent our first big holiday with Jeff’s dad since the passing of his mom and it went well. Of course we were all in tears reminiscing on Sunday, it was still beautiful.

    Have a great week hun. You’re almost at Friday!! 🙂 xo
