When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!
Inspired by Carrie's list of simple things, I choose a few simple moments to share:
Family dinner at Cactus followed by "family sit-in" on possible new couch!
Sara's long day of couch shopping with her dad earlier in the month
is rewarded with the stamp of approval by all family members.
|Couch is ordered!|
Watching movies together and playing games and telling stories!
I convinced Blake and Stefi to join me for "Places in the Heart,"
a personal favorite they had never seen.
Saying goodbye to 2015 at Slater Park (so happy to see the sun)!
Bumping into former students and parents of former students at the grocery store:
Mia, who works at QFC,
Julia, a junior, selling baked goods for a high school club,
Kacey, a junior at Western (majoring in early childhood & elem. ed),
and seeing parents of three former students,
(nothing beats teaching and living in a small town).
Still enjoying Christmas decorations
(undecorating can proceed at a more leisurely pace in retirement).
Still pondering my OLW, lots of possibilities for 2016,
TBA soon, maybe for Tuesday's Slice of Life.
