[a not-always-weekly exercise in gratitude]
1) Orange-mango-banana smoothies, or at least the one I had on the way home today. I seem to be coming down with something — headache, a bit of a sore throat, some coughing and sneezing, very little appetite. I left work a bit early because I was feeling worse. Partway home it occurred to me that a smoothie might make my throat feel better, so I swung through a Starbucks drive-thru. Wow. Not only did it make my throat feel better, but I apparently needed some calories. I followed it up with some shortbread when I got home — and dinner is in the oven.
2) I’m getting better at seizing sunbreaks to go for a walk. Still not necessarily walking very far – we’re talking a few blocks here – but I’m doing it consistently, which is my goal.
5) The man of the house, for braving the possibilities of germs to give me a welcome-home kiss ;)
