Thankful Thursdays #12

Hey everyone!

It always feel like these days keep on going by so fast.

Here is a list of things that has happened to me throughout the week that has made me grateful.

  1. I am thankful that my football team won against my second cousin’s team. Not only did I get to brag about my team winning, but I also got bragging towards her for beating her team
  2. I am grateful that there were many great sales at the grocery store. I not only saved a lot of money, but I was able to buy delicious ingredients for my dinners.
  3. My sister bought me a few groceries when she was doing her own shopping, so that was cool.
  4. I am glad my mom gave me two of her French onion soup bowls. They are oven safe. You are supposed to serve the soup in these bowls, and grate cheese on top of the soup, then you broil it in the oven, and all of the cheese melts perfectly. I can’t wait to use those.
  5. And lastly I am grateful for being able to spend more time throughout my day reading my books.

Thankful Thursdays #11

It’s another week round up, where I talk about the things that made me thankful.

  1. Being able to declutter and purge through my things from my container. It is an amazing feeling. Some of the things that are in these containers are some of the things from childhood. And the rest of the things aren’t useful to me, but can be useful to other people.
  2. It’s Kick Off Night! Thursday Night Football is back. I love NFL, so I am quite excited that it is returning.
  3. Last Friday I got to hang out with my sister and niece, which was a lot of fun. I got to meet my niece’s friend from the playground.
  4. Being able to hang out with my boyfriend at an ice cream parlor, and tried new flavours of ice cream. That was a lot of fun.
  5. And lastly, I am grateful for my mini camping fort in my room. It is so much. It’s just a bunch of blankets laid on the floor. It gives me a new place to read and write my blog.
My niece and my foot. She really liked doing this. She’s so adorable. I love her!

Thankful Thursdays #10

This post is where I write everything I am thankful for in the past week.

  1. I finally was able to donate all of the items I have been getting rid of. I have been placing these items in a reusable bag, and I gave them to my Grandma. My Grandma then passes all of that stuff to her neighbours and her friends. That was a freeing feeling.
  2. I got to hang out with some of my family on Tuesday. We had a lot of fun.
  3. I get to watch hockey and basketball in September! It’s going to be a lot of fun because football will be starting soon.
  4. I love the time I have been setting aside for reading. I have picked a lot of great books.
  5. I love that my succulents (the ones that I have gotten as a birthday present) has been growing a lot.

Thankful Thursdays #8

On Thursday, I had a busy but fun day with family, so that’s why I didn’t post any thing new, but now I am getting all caught up.

I have a lot to thankful for this week.

  1. I saw my niece (on Thursday), we got to hang out for a bit. She’s such a cutie, she’s 17 months old.
  2. I am happy that my boyfriend and I had a fun weekend, we had a little “camp out” in our room, and we watched two movies with snacks.
  3. I am grateful for being nominated for two awards this week. One called The Sunshine Blogger, and the other one was The Liebster Award. It is such a honour to be recognized by fellow bloggers and telling me how much they love my blog.
  4. I am thankful that my Grandparents bought me a cup of tea yesterday. I felt really fortunate to spend time with them, I don’t get to see them that often, so it was a nice treat to see them again.
  5. And finally the last thing I am thankful for is being able to watch all of my favourite sports such as hockey and basketball in the summer.

I would love to hear what you are thankful for this week.

Thankful Thursdays #7

It’s another Thursday which means another Thankful Thursday.

This is where I write a list of five things I am grateful for. I encourage others to make their own list, as well.

  1. I am thankful that I got to spend time with my boyfriend throughout the week, he was off for an extra two days. It was a lot of fun to just hang out neglecting the world.
  2. I am grateful that my boyfriend is just as excited as the clutter free zones as I am. I have declared our coffee table and our night table are often dumping zones (from my boyfriend), so I said that we should keep them spacious and free of clutter.
  3. I am happy that my boyfriend and I went out for a date last night. We went out for ice cream and to the beach to watch the sunset. It was amazing!
  4. I am thankful for my followers for continuing to like my posts, and writing positive and thoughtful comments. Especially with all of the feedback I have received from my short story Taxi Driver
  5. I appreciated my sister for messaging me earlier in the week. I understand she is busy, so I don’t hold that against her. It does make me happy when she does message me. I miss hearing from her. I miss her dealry.

Thankful Thursdays #6

Every Thursday, I like to reflect on what I am most thankful for during the week.

  1. I am thankful for my sister calling me the other night. We haven’t seen each other much since the whole pandemic. So being able to hear her voice was really nice. We got to see each other last Thursday so that was a lot of fun.
  2. I am so happy that sports are back. I really have been enjoying my time watching them. My favourite sport to watch is hockey. There are about five, six games on throughout the day.
  3. Since I am still in the early stages of decluttering (for once and for all), I have told my boyfriend that our coffee table and night tables are clutter free zones. I have been discovering that my boyfriend would dump his stuff there instead of dealing with any of it. But I still love him.
  4. I am thankful for my walk yesterday where I was able to read my book and started writing in my journal outside under a tree. It was a nice change of scenery that realigned my focus and inspiration again.
  5. Finally, I am thankful for the weight of all of my items that I have given away. I feel really proud of myself. The longer you hold on something that no longer brings you joy, the weight becomes even more heavy. It’s just better to cut the ties with these items. I am also grateful that I have no desire to shop for new things anymore. I used to be a big shopper a few years ago, and now I have no desire to go out clothes shopping. Although, the things I have bought for myself, were blouses, and skirts which I wear where I need to dress up. I also would like to be an accountant, but now the offices are starting to get phased out, from everyone working from home. I feel like that might become the new thing now. But I do love dressing up, so it’s not like those clothes were a total waste. It actually made me realize that I did have a lot of clothes. It gave me that extra motivation to depart with things I no longer wear anymore. Once you let all of the weight go, the more freeing it becomes.

Thankful Thursdays #5

I had an eventful week, so there is a lot to thankful for.

  1. I am thankful because I got to hang out with my cousin on Tuesday. We picked up a box of pizza from a local store, and brought it with us to a nearby park for a picnic. It was a joyous time. It was the first time we had hung out in a really long time since we have been in quarantine and social distancing. And I am also hanging out in her backyard at the moment.
  2. I recently just received my tea order, after what seemed like awhile.
  3. In the tea order, I received tea I haven’t even tried yet. I have received a new traveler mug, because it’s in my favourite colour.
  4. I saw my dentist after having my fixed my chipped tooth, from my car accident, eight months ago.
  5. When my cousin was walking me to my bus stop, we saw this beautiful fountain in her neighbourhood.

Thankful Thursdays #4

What a week this week has been. Allow me to explain in the things I am thankful for.

For my new followers, every Thursday I discuss a few things I am grateful for in the past week.

  1. I am thankful because I left my job, and that has been extremely freeing. I have been there on and off for 3 and a half years. I felt like they never really appreciated my hard work that I brought with me. I am happy that I don’t have to go there anymore.
  2. My boyfriend has been holidays this week, so we got to spend a lot of time together, which I am always grateful for.
  3. I am happy for the new teas I bought. Tea always makes me happy. Although I haven’t tried it, I’m saving that for tomorrow. They’re immunitea so they have added vitamins to help strengthen your body from getting sick.
  4. I am thankful for having a vision board. It’s where I post a bunch of positive quotes and my goals for the future. I love the feeling of being inspired and chasing after my dreams.
  5. Because my boyfriend didn’t have to go to work this week, there hasn’t been any reason to set an alarm in the morning. So waking up whenever we feel like, has been very comforting.

I would love to read what everyone else is thankful for this week. 🙂

Thankful Thursdays #3

Another Thursday means another list of things I am thankful for. Every Thursday, I talk about what I am grateful throughout the week.

  1. I am grateful for having a day off. It is so nice to have a day off from work. I can actually do things that are for me, and I am able to relax. I work at a coffee shop, and it gets really busy, really fast, so you always have to be on the go.
  2. I am grateful for all of my books, because they also help me relax. Especially grateful for them right now, since they are my only form of travel, since I’m not actually allowed to travel.
  3. Since I am in the early stages of decluttering, I am finding it quite easy to detach myself from these items.
  4. I am grateful for my milk frother that allows me to make hot and cold lattes. Drinking teas makes me happy.
  5. I am thankful that my succulents are growing. I admire them, especially when they are growing into something more beautiful.
