Days of Gratitude.

Today a friend of mine started the 30 days of gratitude challenge and I thought it was a wonderful idea. You should stop by and check her poetry out she is an amazing poet.

So it’d be really nice if anyone wants to join in. It just gently reminds us that we have a lot to be thankful for even when it doesn’t feel like it.

Day 1 = What smell are you grateful for today?

A friend brought me a bunch of my favourite flowers and I put them next to where I work, the smell is divine. Makes me think of warm days, friends and laughter. Lilies have the most beautiful feminine fragrance.

So what smell are you grateful for today?

      • Evening Steph, Namaste 🙂

        How is your week going? Hump day tomorrow, got much planned lol 😉

        My week has been ambiguous and I’m still processing it all. I am really tired at the moment – all tightly coiled like a Cobra in the basket – and long overdue a sunny beech holiday by at least 12 years.

        I think I’m going to invest my last few pounds buying a one-ticket to Infinity. I’ll send a postcard when I get there 🙂

        Enjoy your evening.

        Namaste 🙂

      • Hey Steph, Namaste 🙂

        I wrote 30 poems over the weekend. 23 of them in response to a Saturday Challenge under the umbrella term ‘circles’. I ended the poems gazing at the additional colours I could see in a rainbow that appeared on Sunday afternoon. The weekend was therefore a magical mystical dream. The weekend has to end for the new week to begin, and once back into the fray, back at the coal-face. So for me I had to walk a long way down the hill on Monday morning going back to work, and there’s still 3 days left. It’s like leading a double-life, it’s bonkers.

        Thank you for the music Steph…I appreciated the choice 🙂 I also found the video quite entertaining.

        How was your day? 🙂 Did you have sunshine?

        Namaste 🙂

      • The temperature has dropped of late, today was chilling.

        I look for sunny miles outside the window, but in moving desks my view has lessened to become roof tops and once more the sky is cramped and my view of it compromised. At least I have a window seat.

        I wish I could close up shop when I get bored lol 🙂 Sorry to hear were cold…there’s no easy fix for that when the door is open and closed all day. I used to wear long-johns under my trousers and that helped quite a lot when I was working in large stores. I always thought the team’s working in the D.I.Y stores had it worse off than I…and those working in temperature controlled spaces…in winter that is a cold old job 🙂

        I was going to ask, if you had thought of where you might book a summer holiday next year?

        Namaste 🙂

        That’s okay 🙂 You are always so busy, a bee if I recall correctly? 🙂

        I suppose it is a hefty mass of poetry to write. There was no stopping me until the end. And even then one wonders if it is the end or just the beginning of the next verse?

        How do I do that? I’m not sure, but when it happens it’s exciting and tiring in a really uplifting way. I think I just disappear into a dream that is always a far better ‘dimension’ to exist in than reality, which is just plain boring and bland and burden by b/s in all walks of life. I am an Outsider as always, alone on my snowy peak, pacing pathways across the ice and snow. It’s when I come down the mountain that life becomes convoluted and absurd, even surreal!

        Your staycation sounds excellent 🙂 I enjoy many throughout the year. If only they were permanent.

        Do break-out the thermals before it is too late lol 🙂 Which reminds me of a story from the days I worked in supermarket retailing… The butcher had spent an age leaning into the freezer cabinets – chest freezers in those days – whilst he cleaned it as part of his bi-weekly ritual. A dear lady customer in the autumn of her days had obviously been watching the butcher for a while and without warning sidled up behind him and place her hands between his legs to ‘fondle’ the family jewels! Anyway, a butcher is never really surprised or phased by anything – I think handling raw meat all day would do that to a man or a woman – and without losing composure politely reminded the lady that ‘offal was not on the menu that evening.’ To which she replied as quick as you like, ‘that’s okay I prefer my testicles fresh not frozen!’

        I do miss being a butcher.

      • lol 😀 Actually I was the store manager, and obviously missed out on all the action on the shop-floor. I was in the cash office with the branch-clerk instead bwahahaha! lol 🙂 Only joking!

        You flatter me with your kind comment and I like it 🙂 The works okay: it needs reworking in several places but that’s the way it goes sometimes when one is caught up in the moment free-styling. I hope others will participate in the challenge and submissions swell to 50. Why not have a go yourself if you get five minutes or so? It’s good fun.

        I imagine you are soothed by your evening and grateful to be in the warm. Enjoy the comfort. Sweet dreams for when you get to Zzzzzz.

        Namaste 🙂
