Pre-Christmas Gratitude

On this Monday before Christmas I'm thankful for:

50.  the wonderful day I'm having.  Baked shortbread cookies this morning, wrapped presents with my daughter this afternoon and tonight she and I will have a special mother-daughter dinner at Summerhill Winery.

51.  the luxury of semi-retirement.  It's a treat to be able to shop during the week, when the lineups are shorter.

52.  the fact that we'll be able to spend time with both the Woods and the Youngs this Christmas.

53.  discovering this TED talk about feeding your mitochondria what it needs.  I've always said that food is medicine.  After a week of changing my diet where I could, my joints, muscles and range of motion are improving daily.

54. sunshine!  Last week was so gloomy and grey I'm thrilled by the golden light streaking through my kitchen windows this afternoon (even it does show how badly they need to be washed).


  1. I like to think of the unwashed windows as a clever little film that makes the bright streaks of winter light a little easier on the eyes - gives it a more muted effect (at least that's what I keep telling myself when I look out my hazy windows).

    BTW, love, love, love TED TV!

  2. Lilly, you're a girl after my own heart!
