Wow, another week in the year done. I do have to say that there are lots of things from my 13 challenges in 2013 that are going well, and others that I haven’t touched so much. Plus being sick has definitely put a hold on most of my fitness goals. But even if some of my goals aren’t being met, I can still be thankful for the things that are going well!
I’m thankful for the negative degree temperatures. OH MY GOSH it’s cold outside right now! Brrrrrr… I really don’t like the cold, at all, but I am thankful for one thing about the cold right now. Did you know that if it’s cold enough, you can take boiling water outside and throw it up in the air and it will instantly turn to snow? Seriously. Google it. So last night I boiled water twice and tossed it in the air, and it did turn into snow. SO. MUCH. FUN! I’m thankful for the very cold weather because it allowed me to try this little trick for the first time! (plus I got to do my 13 challenge of “being in the present moment”).
I’m thankful for my space heater. I LOVE this thing. Do you want to know why? I wrote all about it here.
I’m thankful for my tea collection. I have a whole collection of teas (maybe 15-18 different kinds), and I usually drink anywhere from 3-6 cups a day throughout the winter! I look forward to it with each new client I see (I tend to drink a cup of tea per client most hours of the day), and when I’m home and it’s cold out, it’s warm and relaxing! I’m thankful that tea exists!
I’m thankful for my smartphone touch gloves. These are seriously such a great invention! I love that I can be outside in the cold and not have to take my gloves off to change a song or answer the phone. Props to whoever invented them!
I’m thankful for this grilled cheese sandwich. This is one of my favorite sandwiches of all times, and I often eat it 2-3 times every week. It hasn’t gotten old, and I love the twist on the traditional sandwich. YUMMMM. I’m also thankful I’ve found cheese that is lactose free so I can eat grilled cheese!
I’m thankful for insulation in buildings. Here I am back on the cold again. Insulation is something we don’t often think of, but it seriously makes life so much more comfortable! I can’t even imagine having to sit outside in negative degree temperatures at night, or even in a cold building without any insulation. Can we all take a moment to be thankful about insulation right now?
Now it’s your turn to share! Tell me what you’re feeling thankful for today? Do you have a favorite type of tea to drink?
