#7 Without a doubt the worst thing about living in Phoenix is the summers. With highs of 118+ we dream of winter. I know I shouldn’t complain that we have 81-degree temps in the middle of December while dear friends are dealing with below freezing temps, but I would like it at least in the 60’s. It is December in the Northern Hemisphere after all. But what a joy it is that we don’t have freezing temps for the high and 6-foot snow drifts.
#8 I’m gonna brag here a moment. I have the BEST husband in the world. [he put the clean dishes in the dishwasher away. last week he did it and then loaded it again. BEST i tell you!]
#9 Shawn and I have tried to start eating better. This means organic and all natural foods over stuff loaded with preservatives. This also means I shop more often and spend more money, but it also means not shellacking our bodies with preservatives and antibiotics. Last night for dinner I made homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza. Dough, chicken, cheese, & bacon all from Trader Joe’s. It wasn’t perfect but still yummy.
#10 I spent this last weekend baking. With the exception of a massage & church & a couple of errands my Saturday and Sunday were spent making baby bundts. I usually make cookies but wanted to do something different this year. I have four boxes sitting here next to me waiting to go out in the mail to friends & family. I hope these bring some delicious joy to their lives.
What are you finding joy in today?
