My husband prepared dinner for us.
I took a nap and it was a break from cooking everyday.

I harvested a wheelbarrow full of veggies from my garden:little pumpkins, greens, tomatoes and peppers.
It reminded me to be thankful to the earth for providing an abundant harvest of nourishing vegetables. Somehow the process of gardening never creases to amaze me. . plant a little seed and get food!

Came home to a home-cooked meal, clean water to drink and a bed to sleep in.
It reminded me that I was born into a community where these are easily accesible

Going to meditate with 2 really good friends this afternoon. Actually, they invited me, when they heard I was on-campus today!
Getting to sit with two old meditation partners (we founded a group on-campus), makes my day!

Cleaned my new guitar case from the scuff marks it had, seemingly deeply embedded. Now they are almost gone!
It was a very nice surprise. Now it looks like an almost new case, reflecting the condition of the guitar inside.

We went to Maui for 4 days while our son was away with a school trip. Brad and I had a wonderful and relaxing time. We took the time to be with one another and we focused our attention on one another.
By having the time with Brad, we were able to reconnect and talk about what is happening in our lives. We were also able to recharge ourselves. We laughed a lot.

I had the day off from work because I worked extra hours during the week. This gave me the opportunity to take care of details and responsibilities that were piling up on me without adding to my stress. It was a relaxing day and yet I got a lot done.
I was relaxed all day as I did my tasks. And now I'm even more relaxed because I am caught up. It is wonderful to the opportunity to do things at a calm pace.

I cleaned their house (for pay) and was accommodating and aware of their needs
I felt incredibly grateful for their gratitude. She told me I was her favorite human for my help and for supporting her family.

I waited patiently while a road crew worker allowed a car to pack it if their driveway. It seems very small, but he motioned the most sincere thanks with namaste hands and his sincere appreciation left me a smile on my face for a long time.
I felt a personal sense of accomplishment that my ability to not be impatient through a construction zone had such a huge impact on someone doing such a challenging and often unsafe job.

I rushed home to make a yoga class, but my partner had a rough day. I felt like I should console her but she insisted that I go to yoga. The class was incredibly relaxing, and she didn't hold it against me!
I was able to de-stress after a rough week. Also physically my muscles have been tight; yoga was much needed!

My co-worker gave me a McDonald's egg sandwich.
It helped me get through the morning. I didn't get a chance to eat breakfast that morning, so it was a pleasant surprise.

I used my spiky exercise ball to work out a sore spot in my hip/back.
Less pain and I did it while driving to work.
