Positively Monday

As has become my habit, I am keeping up with positive things that happen each day. I am intentionally keeping the list relatively short, but please don't think these are the only positive things that happen during my days. (though my life is fairly low keyed and mostly ordinary) These are nightly reflections of the things that meant the most to me each day, (And, yes, I am simple and easily amused)
Monday: It was cold so I stayed in most of the day and binged watched Taboo.

Tuesday: Lovely day, I was able to stay home all day and knocked some things off my to do list while listening to St. Paul and the Broken Bones.

Wednesday: Found a book under my bed that I had been looking for. ("Dark Matter"; very interesting read)

Thursday: Took Mom to the Dr.  News was not as good as I hoped but not horrible either, so I am counting is as a positive.

Friday: Started the day with a Mom scare, but she recovered and insisted I go ahead to the lake. After talking it over with My Beloved Sister I did go. Got to see a gorgeous orange sky reflected in the lake at sunset and the ospreys were out and about.

Saturday: Rearranged the downstairs den at the lake place and got the old pump organ in place. (Now it needs a bunch of tlc to make it really work.  Guess I will be learning to repair reeds)

Sunday: TheHub was able to go to church with me again (He went into the office afterward to get his jump start on the week) and Billions! (I am hooked on this show)

  2. Hooray for the positives. The little things are HUGE in my world (which my ever-loving family put down to small things for small minds).

    1. Some days have only small things and some days positively suck and looking for one small thing really does help!

  3. Keeping a positive mind set is so important. I get gloomy, often with no reason, but I like reading your positive recap.

    1. I had a difficult week so I struggled to find positive things, but I find listing at least one daily helps my attitude.

  4. I'm glad you made it to the lake. I know things can be a bit unpredictable with your mother these days, so it's good that you can appreciate when things can proceed as planned.

    1. You are right! It seems when Mom knows I am planning a lake trip she tanks. Understand I invite her every single time but she doesn't want to go.

  6. Finding a missing book always makes for a good day. Sometimes, I think my positives are so child-like and simple-minded. But, getting an egg from Dominique is a big deal to me, definitely a positive.

    1. I understand! Positives just have to be positives,not necessarily big things.

  7. Anne, I am so glad that even during a difficult week, you were still able to find a positive each day.

    1. I know it is Pollyannaish but there is always something good, some weeks it is just easier to find than others. I am trying to use he Ignatius of Loyola philosophy and see God in everything.

  8. I really did have to search for something good each day, but fortunately I found it!
