As you may know, Dove chocolate always includes a saying on the wrapper. Lately they have included those sent in by fans. Well, today, when I unwrapped my morning dark chocolate (they say you should have some dark chocolate every day, right?), the wrapper said, "Celebrate the small victories in life."Debbie from Fairfield, OH.
In light of the very long list I am working on, I decided that is what I would do. I am celebrating the fact that I finally got that pedicure I needed, pulled some of the dead flowers from the garden, went to the grocery store, purged some old papers from the pile... and the list goes on. Boy, do I love crossing things off my list!
The other thing to celebrate is the fact that at 61 I don't mind running out to the store without makeup or freshly coiffed hair. But then there is always Murphy's Law which says when I do that I will ALWAYS run into people I know. Today I saw one of my neighbors and a friend from church. Lucky for me, they have both seen me looking better.
I am enjoying the open windows, maybe the last day for this, and the gorgeous weather. The leaves are absolutely brilliant. Don't know how much longer we can enjoy those. While I love the flowers in spring and summer, there is something about the red, yellow and orange of fall. Maybe part of it is the short time we have to enjoy them.
This was the view out my front door this morning. What a sight to behold.
Now, back to the list. If I can cross everything off today, the one thing on it tomorrow will be sewing!
