This week …

… was a great week.

A week where several days in a row *almost* everything got checked off my to-do list.

A week where I’ve exercised 3 out of the last 6 days.

A week where I got a quilt cut and the front and back sewn.

A week where the balance of family and work was in pretty great alignment. {i.e. Mt. Laundry was scaled and is no longer.}

A week where I made dinner 4 out of 6 nights.

A week where I made muffins and applesauce.

A week where I took several naps.{My ‘grass’ allergies did not make the ‘great’ part of this week.}

A week where we said goodbye to school and hello to Summer.

I blog this not to brag or say, ‘look how great I was this week’, but rather to be thankful for this week. To be able to remember this week when I have a not so great week. To encourage me to have more weeks like this.

Tomorrow I’m running my first ‘race’ of the year {5K}. Another small victory following 3 months of almost no exercise due to all sorts of reasons. I’m looking forward to that rush of running, enjoying a morning with my SIL … and for the chocolate and champagne at the finish line!

Happy Weekend!
