Little Things

Taking a hint from my girl Kate and her “Daily Grace” posts and forcing myself to write out the little things I’m thankful for today.   Because I’m feeling tired and tense and like it should have been Friday about three days ago 🙂

Physical health // Specifically, two strong legs that helped me to my goal of beating each individual mile time from my run on Tuesday.  So I may feel tired, but I also feel mighty proud.

Fun post-work plans // The Rockies are back in town!  We haven’t treated ourselves to dinner out in six whole days (the horror)!  It’s summer and “school nights” don’t exist (whether you stopped having school nights 5 years ago or not)!  Time for dinner and a game with Joey.

A good book // A little over halfway done with Homegoing and while I don’t love the actual writing, I am so lost in these characters and their stories and the way Yaa Gyasi has formatted her novel.  It is beautiful.

Also, though it is sometimes hard for me to put work aside for just half an hour, once I’m outside in the shade with a good book in hand, I am so so glad I did that for myself.

One thought on “Little Things

  1. I love that you’re doing this! It’s a nice mental refresh, right? Also YES to every day this week feeling like it should be Friday. I am not kidding, I woke up Tuesday morning and felt like it was surely the end of the week and it’s only gotten worse from there. At least we are finally actually up to our last workday of the week! I’m glad to hear your take on Homegoing; it is a reading experience, that’s for sure.
