Good News Week, the (late) Round-up
Somehow the opportunity to do Good News Week; The Round-up yesterday just passed me by. What with time constraints (board painting, grocery shopping, swimming lessons) and the lack of anything in the way of bloggable good news (there were little things, like getting time to paint 4 more boards when I thought I wouldn't get the chance to do any, having a lovely coffee-chat with a friend, and playing some rather good scrabble moves, but nothing that seemed to warrant a whole Good News Post), it turned out that it was not my lucky day for posting the final blog in this series. So I'm calling Friday the 13th a glitch in the system, and ignoring it. But seeing as I was awake to see the most stunning sunrise this morning, so gorgeous that it penetrated my walk-of-the-living-dead morning status by filling our kitchen with the most resplendent rosy light (it had turned gold by the time I got outside with a camera to capture it) and seeing as I also won $65 on a tattslotto ticket today as well, I think today must be the perfect day to round off Good News Week.
It has been a good exercise to really focus on the nice and good things in my life this week, and has actually been quite helpful in terms of making me stop worriting about rotten situations that are out of my hands. It's also been quite fun to blog every day, but I don't think I could maintain that over a longer time period, I would get sick of the sound of myself I reckon. But to finish on a cheery note, I hope that there is good news in your life this week and that you're not too miserable/ distracted/ busy/ cranky/ sick/ put-upon to relish it.
