  1. If I eat too many sugary things I feel depressed and my legs twitch.
  2. Running a fever is not always because I am sick, sometimes it is my body telling me I need to rest.
  3. Why is it that it is so easy to go back to sleep after I turn off the alarm clock?
  4. Where do you go when you need to be restored/refreshed?


The small things I celebrate this week are:

The week is done and a lot got accomplished.
Still a lot to do before my desk is clear but I don’t feel stressed.

There is a carton of my favorite ice cream in the freezer.

Have a couple of movies to watch this week-end
and of course, some books to read.

    1. Sugar is not good but is better than artificial sweeteners. I guess it just needs to be in moderation. I wonder how many more generations will be able to enjoy the wide open spaces? Sad to see so much open land being built on. Where will the wild creatures go?

  1. I love that you make a gratitude list, and you remind me how small wonders sewn together make all the difference….ice cream, movies…BOOKS…plus Teddy who doesn’t need a mention. He’s a built-in blessing, like your home. Really love the brevity of your prose…as if you place each word on the page with tweezers

    1. Thank you, Susannah. But what you read is a result of much editing. I can blather on forever but it gets confusing and boring…even to me so I can imagine what it would be like to the rest of y’all.

  2. Those snooze buttons on the alarm clock are dangerous! It’s very easy to turn them off and go back to sleep.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I’ve noticed the same thing with #1, funny how foods can affect us in ways we don’t always realize. I so relate to #3, that ten minute snooze button can be the start of the most wonderful sleep… until it buzzes again. I’m not sure that was a good invention, and perhaps should have been named the “stall” button, since we’re just postponing the inevitable. 🙂

    It sounds like you’ve had a good, productive week, and a nice relaxing weekend coming up… win-win… enjoy!

  4. Intriguing answers. #3 gets a lot of us, I think. Funny how our body and/or brain reacts to certain things. Just last week after not having used it for months, since I was always such a sleepy head, I strapped on the FitBit, which has a silent alarm. Well, the alarm did not even have go off. I woke up by myself 10 minutes before that, so I got up early to go jogging before work. It really was a bit strange.

  5. Ugh – it’s so true. I can toss and turn all night long and get a terrible sleep. and then when hubby’s alarm goes off, I roll over and fall into the deepest sleep for like 2 hours. It’s so weird. perhaps I am just thankful that I don’t have to get up and go to work like he does.
    I’m such a night owl though — it really doesn’t go well with family life at all.
    Spending time with family and friends – having all your loved ones around – is one way to get restored — but if life is particularly busy than I escape into Nature.

    1. The alarm thing is a mystery to me. Even if I get a good nights sleep when the alarm goes of if I don’t get right up I go back to sleep…not a good thing.

  6. Sounds like you’re ending the week on a better note than last Friday. I’m with you on the too much sugar ~ there is a diminishing marginal return with each bite. Less is more.

    When I need to rest, restore, rejuvenate . . . I go to BED.

    1. Much better than last week. Seems hard for me to remember the less is more thing. To rest and restore, like you, I go to bed but first I have a bubble bath.
