365 Grateful – Day 173

I’m grateful for access to beautiful fresh, healthy and nutritious vegetables! Today’s grateful includes a recipe for the Roast Vegetable Salad with Feta that I cooked up today for today’s lunch today and also for my lunch for the next three days!  It is very yummy. 🙂 Note:  […]

365 Grateful – Day 171

The best friends I could ever have are my puppies.  The last couple of weeks have been difficult but these two have provided me with unconditional love, companionship, lots of cuddles and loads of laughs and smiles. Chelsea on the left turned 13 on 3 March 2013.  Ava […]

365 Grateful – Day 170

Life is a gift.  It can at times be complex.  It can at times be challenging.  It can at times test us …. but it IS beautiful and wonderful. You don’t have to be perfect.  Is that ball in the photograph perfect?  No!  Is it beautiful?  Yes! I […]

365 Grateful – Day 166

I’m grateful for some time with my daughter today and for some purchases that have cheered me up. If you read yesterday’s grateful post, you would know that I needed some cheering up.  Today, I took my daughter on a shopping trip to our nearby big shopping centre […]

365 Grateful – Day 165

I want my blog to be a happy place (and I really hope it is!), but I also want it to be real and honest – within reason of course.  With this in mind, I’m not going to pretend today was a wonderful happy day.  It wasn’t.  It […]

365 Grateful – Day 164

I’m very grateful for wine!  I don’t drink it on a regular basis, but when I do …  I love the taste, particularly but not exclusively Sauvignon Blanc, and it mellows and relaxes me.  I adore a glass of wine with a meal! The photograph today is of […]
