52 weeks of gratitude – Week 5

thumb_1_1024It’s already week 5 of my 52 weeks of gratitude! I’m thinking about all of the wasted time not exercising, because what a great accomplishment that would be to have 5 weeks of exercise. I’m not going to let that get me down though, there are plenty of good things going on.

Last night I couldn’t sleep and I ended up doing what I do too much of, Pinteresting and hanging out around the internet. Only now I have the kitty cam to also keep me entertained. It was actually a pretty uneventful night until about 1 am when a red fox came to visit. It was such a beautiful creature I couldn’t help but wake Joe up. So we looked at the fox and waved at him a little bit before shooing him away. I don’t want our house to become a feeding ground for him. I had only left food out that late because it stormed during the day and the cats didn’t come to eat earlier on.  I’m still not positive on who is sleeping in the cat house yet, hopefully I’ll be able to see them going in there one day.

I did get in to the school for a days work. It wasn’t what I had set out to do, but I started to come up with a new setup for next year. Overall I want to move my desk out with the band so that it’s convenient to them. As I’ve done it so far it takes up too much room, so I’ll be working on the details of that. I intend on going in tomorrow to work on it.

I’ve started a few healthful habits. I started to take my vitamins again, at least I do it almost every day. It does give me more energy and makes me feel better. I also started oil pulling in the morning. I did a post on that, but I’ve noticed a big difference in my sinuses and the whiteness of my teeth since doing it, and I think that I’m only on day 4. I plan on continuing this.

So what I’m grateful for is that I’m able to lead a pretty interesting life right here from my house. We have a lovely garden, and it’s good to be able to do something for the neighborhood cats even if Scruggs will hiss at me for the rest of my life. I also got to spend some time this week at lunch with friends which was a great way to break up the monotony. What I’m most grateful for is the opportunity of choice.

This next week I have to buckle down and get some serious work done. Wish me luck.
