Friday’s Gratitude List #42

Knitting

Quote of the week: ‘You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.’ ― Maya Angelou

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week. I have to admit, I’ve really struggled with energy levels this week; the after effects of flu can be tough. I’m finally starting to feel some spark come back to life though, and I’m glad to be retuning to my usual routine (it felt odd to not have the regular Gratitude List last week). And this week has made me realise how important it is to believe that ‘you are alone are enough.’ Not thinner, or happier, or smarter or more energetic. Just you. Even on an off week, you’re enough.

Here are my top 3 things for which I’ve been particularly grateful this week.

1/ Beautiful yarn. I couldn’t take a trip to Loop last weekend without coming away with some beautiful wool. I have an idea for a striped linen scarf I want to make, and I’m still trying to sort out the pattern in my mind. It’ll be the first time I try to develop a pattern of my own so I’m excited about it!

2/ Spending more time in the kitchen. I’ve had so much fun messing around in the kitchen and trying out some new recipes this week.

3/ My Dad. Who worked really hard to fix Miranda’s Notebook when it went down earlier in the week. I was having a major panic attack envisaging almost a year’s worth of posts (i.e. the whole blog) just disappearing… Which has forced me to realise I really need a system for backing up photos and blog posts. Do any of you have any advice? My blog is so photo heavy that I find I fill up external hard dives / dropbox etc etc incredibly quickly. Any tips for storing such a vast amount of data safely? I’d definitely appreciate them!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! What are your plans? I’m excited about going to the ballet (La Sylphide) tomorrow!
