A Positive Sunday.

Posted on
Birthday flowers still giving joy!

Sunday.

What a contrast this day is to last weekend! However, today I refuse to dwell on my feelings – since I am alone, it will only drag me down, which is something I don’t need right now.

So…I am going to concentrate on positives, and hope, and the light at the end of the tunnel, etc.

It is a cool, cloudy day today, which is my favourite kind of day. I’ve already taken Daisy (the border collie x that rules the roost around here) for a long walk, so : exercise – check. (I have it on good authority that walking is good for the soul – give it a try!)

I am busy making lunch which will consist of 2 lamb chops and sweet potato fries with olive oil and rosemary – baked in the oven. Cannot wait! Oh yes, with a glass of glorious red wine from our area, of course.

The rest of the day will probably be spent in front of the TV with my knitting – current project : beanies for my oldest son, since the one he is currently wearing has most definitely seen better days! Mom to the rescue!!!

I am also grateful that I had guests in my little guest house this weekend, which I consider a huge blessing after 5 months of absolutely no business. 🙂

And on top of all that, I am still enjoying the beautiful flowers I received on my birthday from my children, as well as the yummy Lindt chocolate that I started off on last night.

All my favourites in one package…YUM!

I am still healthy through all of this hullabaloo which is also known as 2020, so all in all, blog friends, a huge amount to be thankful for!!!

I am making it my mission to smile a lot more (I normally feel like an idiot when I smile for nothing), to look for the positives every single time I feel glum, and to express my gratitude for my blessings more often.

Until next time, look out for the positives, they are all around you!! 😀

About zelmare

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)
