Beginning of December - a short week

We have finished our 4 day mini-first week of December. 

What has made  me happy these few days?

- Exercising 3 of the days

- Learning six small things on my new phone

- I bought a new fleece jacket that fits well and is a color I love. I was the only thing on my winter wardrobe gaps list that I really needed and I could have managed without it. So fortunate.

- I'm carefully considering my "winter" wardrobe and only keeping what fits my current lifestyle and body really well, is modern and versatile and lets me have great for me colors near my face. Happy so far.

- Once again I'm delighted to have silk undershirts so I don't have to layer up so heavily in our house while keeping the heat temp down. 

- I treated myself to coffee and a donut at the library café and sat outside reading for a while.

- My brother called and we had a nice chat including reminiscing some about where we grew up and our parents.

- I decided to send Christmas/holiday cards this year and found non-religious ones I really like. A fun winter scene on the front and inside is says "The world's a merrier place because of you!" I think they are perfect. Connecting with family, new and old friends in a cheery way feels good.

- The local "kids" are coming out next week to go to my club meeting with me and also to stay overnight. 


  1. You are so good at finding the positive things to be happy and/or grateful for in life. I need to take a page out of your book on the wardrobe goals.

    1. Thanks. Do I remember that you were going to work on your wardrobe once you moved? Not important to everyone. I just do it because I feel better in "my colors" and well fitting clothes.

  2. I am glad you found the perfect fleece.

    God bless.

  3. It's so satisfying to find clothing that really suits you. Hubby and I are still trying to cull through our clothes. We actually got moved into our retirement home this weekend, and I was thrilled that our clothes fit (sort of, lol) in our smaller closets. It really is nice to have clothing that meets the needs of your lifestyle, but it's a process for most folks. Enjoy your new jacket!

    1. Congratulations on your new home! I hope you really enjoy it.
