It's been a fairly full week, perhaps I'll do a part two!
First five things in photo form, clockwise:
1. Power outage kindness. I echo Jen's sentiment in her last post, I spent a lot of time thinking of all of the things I have to be grateful for in all of this.
2. Half days at work because we have no power, it's much appreciated. Big group breakfast / lunch with coworkers.
3. Coffee. Availability, power to make it, sugar and milk to put it... All of it. BBQ boiled water and instant at work, it's all good.
4. Clearing a huge amount of trash from around my building, felt good. Clearing.
5. Orange is the new black... It's been nice to zone out to.
6. Everyone who is working so hard to get everyone back on the grid.
7. Quiet chats on a powerless Monday afternoon
8. Fresh clean towels
9. Being more comfortable alone with myself than I have been. It's still far from where I want, but it's a little better.
10. Dragging my butt through being more positive
2. Back to work!! I think it's going to be really good!!
3. Day 13 of green smoothie challenge!
4. Visiting Amanda in Minto and seeing kittens!
5. Car fix was not too bad, $150 much better than a dead car!
6. New work boots
Buddha was unmoved, he simply turned to the man and said, “May I ask you a question?”
The man responded with, “Well, what?”
Buddha said, “If someone offers you a gift and you decline to accept it, to whom then does it belong?”
The man said, “Then it belongs to the person who offered it.”
Buddha smiled, “That is correct. So if I decline to accept your abuse, does it not then still belong to you?”
The man was speechless and walked away."
