Count your blessings - November 2020

This is my monthly list of gratitude things.  Turns out this was also an assignment in the blogboost challenge so 2 birds in one blow.

  1. A couple of swans flying by above the city
  2. A week of vacation where we were still allowed to go to our weekend house in the east of Belgium (after our vacation to Gran Canaria got cancelled as was to be expected)
  3. Walking on average 9 kms a day during that vacation with the children
  4. Playing Pokémon Go with the entire family during our walks
  5. Sleeping more than 8 hours a day
  6. Starting to puzzle again
  7. My orchids that bloom for the 2nd time this year, a record in our house
  8. Sales figures that we never dared to dream off when we thought it all went crashing down when the pandemic launched.
  9. A backlog at work that finally after 9 months starts to go down. 
  10. Take away from a Michelin star restaurant to eat at home without needing to book a babysit
  11. Pandemic curves going down again just before medical system crashes
  12. Sneaking in the children's bedroom and give them a secret kiss on their sleeping faces
  13. Stress attacks that are responded to with comprehension and compassion 
  14. A friend that drives a couple of hours to spend an extended lunch break walk with me to catch up
  15. Walking meetings
  16. Living next to a gorgeous abbey site
  17. My yoga class that finally decides to provide online classes.
  18. The gas fire place on cold days
  19. Binge watching The Crown

This is a monthly list of simple things in my life that make me happy or that make me smile.  
As the world often seems full of negativity and disaster, I want to pay attention to these small things that make me happy in my daily life and be grateful for them. You can find all of them via this link

9km per dag, knap!
Meer slaap zou ik ook wel kunnen gebruiken #werkpuntje

@ElsS: oei die slaap was niet duidelijk maar dat was ook in die vakantieweek. En dat deed zo'n deugd omdat het groot contrast is met werkweken waar ik laatste maanden door werkstress soms vrij slechte nachten heb. Maar die week met 8u slaap is dus ook al een maand geleden weer :). Maar 't valt de laatste nachten wel mee.

Ik las eerst "A week of vaccination" ipv "A week of vacation" en begreep er niet veel van :-D

Als The Crown op is, The Queen's Gambit is schitterend. Of zag je die al?
