autumn joy & gratitude

21 April 2013

  • Making smoothies in my 15 year old blender that I cheer on each time.
  • My diary with meetings, pop up events, dinners and projects marked.
  • Scrumptious farmers market produce & basil from my mum’s garden.
  • Writing cards to friends for just because moments & special occasions.
  • Participating in inspiring urban initiatives.
  • Long walks in the cooler autumn mornings, yay!
  • New sheets in a colour called storm = cosy.
  • Beautiful girlfriends.
  • Shared jokes with my mum.
  • Our first olive oil tasting session.
  • Fresh breezes through the window.
  • A girl’s date to the theatre.
  • Scheduled rest times, always.
  • Home cooked meals & watching food & travel shows with my husband. Quiet night bliss.

Autumn you are energising and inspiring, welcome back.

What’s been making you happy and thankful lately, my friends?

    Sunshine! We are starting to get sunshine in London and it is SO good! Yesterday I had my arms bare. I felt naked but it was good!!

    15 year old blender is very impressive!

    So many lovely things in your post Lucent, including your delightful, calming photos. Quiet night bliss…we all need this.

    Lately I am thankful for my beautiful children and our good health.

    LOVE your list of happy things. I’m enjoying the cooler autumn weather too. If only I can get out of bed early!

    What makes me happy? Spring! Finally the sun, the buds and flowers, this is one of my favorite seasons!

    Ah, a lovely list of good things. I am thankful for hints of warmer days to come and for music.

    Such a lovely gratitude list you have shared and the return of Autumn is always cause for celebration :)
    That kale looks delicious – I wilt it and add sliced almonds and dried cranberries.
    My greatest happiness always comes from family, pets and friends like most people but we have recently put all our CD collection onto an Ipod ( a bit behind the times I know!) I love that it can play our music continuously at home.

    LOL! We’re dying to get OUT of fall and winter. Spring has finally arrived. Just! I’m grateful that I don’t have to wear 5 layers of clothes for a change. It’s quite liberating to wear only 2-3 layers!

    The thing that’s making me most happy is that it’s finally cool weather! Sounds silly, but since I moved from Canada in September, I kind of missed out on the winter… and being that I AM Canadian, I obviously love winter (and snow, so much, but alas that I will not get in Melbourne). My coats and pants and boots are all like THANK GOD WE CAN COME OUT NOW.

    As always, your photos are beautiful :)

    Autumn? Had to do a double take on that one! A lovely list.

    Love your happy list. The sheets sound cozy and the color intriquing, home cooked meals with the husband is always on the top of my list, and olive oil tastings? How cool! Right now I am thankful for my healthy son. Have a beautiful weekend! ( :

    An olive oil tasting session? I’m intrigued! What did you discover from that? Any favourites?

    My friend has found a new favourite ice cream lately that is olive oil flavoured. Again, I was intrigued!

    What makes me happy and thankful? Good family, good friends, good company, and refreshing alone time.

    I love Autumn mornings – cool and crisp, and the beautiful light that we get now that daylight savings has ended! There’s something very rejuvenating and refreshing about Autumn, it’s a time when I feel we can spend a little more time indoors and with ourselves rather than worrying about going ‘out’.
