Things I Love Sundays: Bed Weather

The battle with my bed every morning has become by far, the toughest I've had in recent years. The responsibilities, I had learned, do grow exponentially and most mornings, sleep has become even more delicious with overcast skies and cold that penetrates thick sheets. This feeling, waking up to really good weather, thick sheets and the smell of vanilla is just making me happy <3

Gratitude. This piece on Yahoo affirms my belief in counting every blessing no matter how small:

People who approach life with a sense of gratitude are constantly aware of what's wonderful in their life. Because they enjoy the fruits of their successes, they seek out more success. And when things don't go as planned, people who are grateful can put failure into perspective.

This. 1945. Because this is the source of many a sleepless night and heavy breakouts but it's all worth it.

 Arranging every single item on my closet by type and color. So therapeutic! I also weeded out everything size 0 and 2. Well, most of it.

I'd been breaking out {real bad} but my friends have been coming to my rescue!

A truly warm response for one of my more serious articles. The SONA last Monday made me feel like this country is truly going places. Go, Pilipinas!

Seeing and catching up with old friends. Worship service. Being a part of something bigger than me. Chez Karine. Being mentored and learning. Mentoring someone. Willa Ford.

LBDs. New makeup toys to play with. Family. Laughter at 5 PM. Letters. This is why I think I might've been French in my past life:

I'm always in a hurry to get going, though in general I dislike starting the day. I first have tea and then, at about ten o'clock, I get under way and work until one. Then I see my friends and after that, at five o'clock, I go back to work and continue until nine. I have no difficulty in picking up the thread in the afternoon. When you leave, I'll read the paper or perhaps go shopping. Most often it's a pleasure to work.
