Gratitude

Weekly Gratitude 2021 39/52

Happy Sunday from a cold, grey and windy Sydney today. I’ve had a slow morning where I woke up, had to cancel some plans, and then napped on the couch after which I binge-watched a Netflix series. It’s been one of those days and I think I really needed it. This week has been overwhelming and while I’m not looking forward to the weekend ending, I think a slow finish is what was needed. Anyway, without further ado, here are all things I’m grateful for from 19th September to 25th September 2021:

Starting my Sunday with protein pancakes – they were pretty yummy!

Sunday walks around the harbour and enjoying watching people picnicking in the sunshine

Some beach time on Monday evening to stem some of the overwhelm

Lorikeets visiting the balcony

Doing a big grocery shop mid-week and actually looking forward to prepping some of the meals

Increasing vaccination rates

Week 39

Contacting someone who is willing to be a mentor and help with setting up a solo private practice

A good get-to-know-you chat with my incoming line manager

Friday late afternoon dip in the freezing ocean – so good to clear my head!

Friday night online book club chats

Managing to deadlift two reps with 80 kgs

Saturday picnic with Sammie, David and Teddy in the park

It’s a quiet life in lockdown but once again, it’s about the small things. As of today, all my friends are fully vaccinated and while a lot of them are outside my 5 km radius currently, I can’t wait till we can all catch up again.

How has your week been?

Do share!

    Lovely to have those visiting lorikeets! Sounds like a good week – taking time off when you need to is so important,

    Teddy loved your cuddle and had a big smile in the photo. Glad to hear vaccination rates are increasing and soon you’ll be able to resume your social activities. Thank you for linking up with #weekendcoffeeshare.

    I agree that ‘it’s the small things’ in the end… they all add up and are often what we remember.

    I’m going to go and read your overwhelm post as I missed that but I remember you saying you’d had a tough week and had some thinking to do. The idea of a mentor sounds good. I thought about doing the same around ‘pitching’ to magazines. Someone who’d written for mags/websites to read my work or (well…) mentor me to get me started.

    From the sounds of today’s press conference you won’t have too long to wait. Teddy’s ability to pose for every photo amazes me – as does your deadlifting 80kgs!

    I saw THE fluffiest rainbow lorikeets on my walk the other day. They were using the dog drinking bowls to “swim” in.

    Hi Sanch,
    I’m done with my bout with covid and so my own life is getting back to normal.
    I’m thankful for having the easiest time with this bug of anyone I know.
    Mild symptoms and just lots of sleep were more of a blessing than anything else.
    But I also learned a few things about the bug and immunity.
    If you’d like to read a 10-minute fiction piece I wrote around it, here’s the link.

    But I’m ready to be done with my month (Sept) of dealing with being cut off from my life with covid.
    I’m also thankful for such a mild ride, knowing full well that many others have very different experiences.
    Blessings.
