I see a lot of bloggers post weekly about the things that they are thankful for. I’ve held off on doing this because I’m not sure that I could do it that often. However, in the last few weeks, I’ve realized that maybe this could be a way for me to be more cognizant of the good things that I have going for me and a way for me to be more appreciative of the awesomeness that I do have in my life. In the end I’ve decided to give it a go, we’ll see if it lasts.
So on this cold day in February I am thankful for…………
The Sun… Ok, so we all gripe about winter, but it’s not all bad. There is nothing like a ray of sunshine on a cold winter’s day. Honestly, it makes me happy just looking out my front windows and seeing that the sun is shining. Don’t get me wrong I love it in the summer too, so I guess I just love the sun, overall. It still amazes me what a little sunshine can do for the soul.
My Sunshine, C-man – Really? Need I say more? This kid can make me smile at the drop of a hat. Period. I’ve never felt love like this.
CSA’s – I just re-upped my CSA membership for this coming summer. I get giddy just thinking about the vegetables that will be rolling into my kitchen in the coming months. I welcome it all this year. Even the crazy things like celeriac, rutabaga, and more. I mean, how else would I have learned to make celery flavored french fries?
New Sneakers – I bailed on my old ones the other night. I took myself to Fleet Feet and not only did I try on the new version of my usual sneakers, I ventured into trying on completely new ones. And that’s where I landed. I found a pair of Brooks that were like walking on feathers. I am in and maybe I am now a Brooks girl? Who knows.
Ice Cream Cake – Yeah, what? You know you love it too. And yes, we bought one this week. I couldn’t help myself. I start training for my half iron on Monday. It’s ok. I needed to splurge. I just love it…… And so does C…. Check the pics!
And lastly, this week’s long run. Ok, I have a hard time calling a 6 mile run a long, run but when you went three weeks without running, 6 miles is indeed long. I can say that it went very well with no pain. I also didn’t feel like my fitness was attorcious as I have been. I felt calm, cool and collected. I definitely could have gone farther, but I didn’t as I knew I’d get myself into trouble. I missed running. This was great!!!
What are you thankful for today?
