My gratitude list. #TToT.

I recently wrote a gratitude list and I thought I’d do this again, but this time I’m linking up with

Ten Things Of Thankful.

So without further ado, here’s my list.


Eating my Mum’s meringue with whipped cream, raspberries, strawberries and peaches. We had a bonfire today, and while I didn’t took part in it, Mum left some yummy food for me, including the meringue. We all like it most with blueberries, but blueberries seem to be very expensive at the moment and Mum didn’t want to make it with blueberries for all the guests not knowing if they will actually eat it. But it was still very good. And as we are at it, I appreciated that I didn’t have to be there too, I could hear all the noise from my room well enough. 😀


Spending a lot of time with Misha. He wasn’t keen on sleeping with me every night, but still, we spent a lot of time together this week, and as especially the second part of it has been difficult for me, it’s greatly valued.


Green tea. Perhaps you recall my recent coffee dilemmas. It seems like I have the solution. I’ve been trying different kinds of green teas and other drinks like that that could get me going, but wasn’t particularly convinced as they either weren’t working much or I didn’t like the taste. Now I found the right green tea for me as it seems and I use xylitol with it to make it taste better.


(Slightly) cooler weather. It’s still rather hot, but it’s manageable and cooling down which I am very happy about and desperately hopeful that this tendency will keep for a while.


My family. Yesterday was the funeral of my Mum’s acquaintance’s daughter who died tragically in an accident. It was shocking, and made me feel grateful that I do have my whole family.


Long walks with Mum and Jocky. That always helps me to clear out the brain a bit.


Crisps. I’ve got a lot this week and liked them a lot.


Music. I’ve been listening to plenty of fabulous music this week, including right now. Music helps me greatly in so many aspects of life and I can’t imagine my life without it.


Eating pasta with broccoli sauce yesterday for dinner. This is such a ridiculously minimalistic meal we usually have it when there isn’t much time or not many things to eat at the moment or lack of creativity. But we all love it anyway.


Sleep. It hasn’t always been the best for me this week, but I did have some very restful sleep and I appreciated it very much, and I’m soon going off to sleep as it’s already past midnight and hope tonight I can also be grateful for good sleep.

What are you grateful for this week? 🙂

  1. I’m thankful you linked up with the Ten Things of Thankful! Welcome!
    The fruit and meringue sounds really yummy.
    I’m sorry about the loss of your mum’s acquaintance’s daughter. Unexpected deaths do remind us that life is fragile and help us remember to appreciate those loved ones we still have with us.
    Pasta and broccoli sauce, though simple, is delicious.
    And sleep? Sleep is wonderful!

  2. agree on the music there is hardly anything that I won’t listen to*
    I’m one of those people who never say yes to the perennial summer question, ‘Hot enough for you?’
    It rarely is.

    1. My music taste is also pretty eclectic, but I can be very picky at the same time and won’t listen to just anything. 😀 Wow my Dad is like that too, there’s hardly ever hot enough for him! 🙂


  3. On of my grandmothers only drank green tea and she introduced it to me when I was a child. The only teas I drink now on occasion are certain caffeine-free teas.

    The mom’s dessert sounds delicious.

    I love music too and know how calming certain music can be, but also how some music can energize a person.

    I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

  4. This is an awesome list of reasons to be thankful… good things to eat, simple pleasures, time with your beloved Misha (we have five “furkids” that I love dearly), nights where sleep is restful, and realizing how blessed you are to have family present in your life. Amen to that! So often it is easy to take them for granted. It is in the heat of summer here in West Texas now, but I still prefer that to the long months of winter cold where I grew up as a child. Blessings to you in the days ahead, and thank you for joining us! XO
