I am focused this year on being even more intentional than usual in my daily life while continuing to appreciate the present.
SMALL MOMENTS OF HAPPINESS:
I am happy we have had rain this week and very happy I kept my hiking shoes when we moved. Post bunion surgery they are comfy again and my feet have been warm and dry during dog walks.
Hubby was given homemade ginger liqueur as a gift. We split a Ginger Martini as it was all alcohol lol. Sent a pic to the givers giving it two thumbs up review. You can also use it in baking which might be healthier.
The pup entertains us every day (annoys too but that is a teenage puppy for you). Very happy, contented and relaxed buddy when he is not racing around or chewing on this "bones".
To kick off the year we spent New Year’s Day with all our immediate family rather than the next day which was the Rose Parade. That way we got to actually spend time visiting and enjoyed being with all of them which was our priority.
Our older son turned 52 on January 3rd! I took his card and gift with us on New Year's Day.
I had a Pilates sessions. I set up a simple exercise tracking system limited to Pilates at home/in studio, stretching at home, and miles walked outside. Now to up the number of checkmarks.
We continued to repair our home. Replaced the kitchen faucet and main shower drain cover. We learned that fixing the guest shower faucet requires a hole in the adjoining bedroom wall so we bought the faucet set and the plumber was scheduled for next week.
I started going through our house with the intentions of reducing "inventory" (less to manage & potentially pack) & upgrading/replacing as needed (less annoyance). I'm asking myself - How many do I need/use? If too many, which are my favorites? Do I need more or to upgrade? I'm also doing a deep cleaning as I go. Five kitchen cupboards done. YTD: 14 items decluttered; 4 replaced/upgraded
