Sunday Night Chit Chat!

Reading: Blogs, blogs, blogs!!
Watching: "Julie and Julia" but will be going downstairs in a few minutes to watch the beginning of the Oilers game. I'm not a hockey fan but now that the lockout is over, there is a buzz in the air. And our grandson, age 2, is sporting his very first Oiler jersey that we bought for him when he was born. It still doesn't fit as it's a size 5 but he's jumping around shouting "hockey, hockey"!! Who couldn't be excited when he's vibrating.
Listening to: My family chatting, dishes clinking, the sink filling for the nightly ritual of kitchen clean up.
Baking/Cooking: Nothing but today have enjoyed raspberry jam toast for breakfast, homemade chicken soup for lunch and sausages with asparagus and pea risotta for dinner.
Happy I accomplished this week: Not much other than resting, relaxing and rejuvenating our bodies, minds and souls. Now we're back from our holiday, work starts this week but savoring the last moments of holiday time. I am happy that I accomplished putting into place my "Artist Dates" with myself from the book "The Artists Way|".
Looking forward to next week:  Having the biopsy done on my throat. Tuesday is the day. Yeah for getting it done. I'm also looking forward to getting my office reorganized at the preschool. I was gifted a lovely table that matches my office furniture and have set it up but now I have to rearrange a few things, which means I get to purge. One of my favorite things!!
 Thankful for today: A chance to rest more, a long hot bath, a clean house, a lovely life.
*BONUS QUESTION* Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Both!!

I really enjoyed Julie & Julia... was dissapointed, actually sad, in how it ended (the true story part of it), but it was a great movie! Good luck with your throat biopsy... hope it goes well for you! Enjoy your week! :) Thanks for joining in!

Hi Chy,
I found your blog through Sunday Night Chit Chat. I enjoyed reading some of your posts. In your profile it says family life educator and bereavement counselor. Are you teaching and counseling? That must be pretty busy. I work am a counselor too I think that is why it piqued my curiosity. I hope you have a good week.

Thank you Carla. I felt the same with the movie. My biopsy went well and the added bonus was they "dilated" my throat at the same time, which today means I can swallow without choking. It's amazing, something I haven't felt for years.

May I add your wonderful blog to my growing list of favorites?

Hi Softie,

Thank you for your wonderful comments. Yes, my work is in bereavement as well as education. I counsel families thru the natural process of grief. I also teach children, teens and adults using art as the medium for exploration. A very unique job and one that brings me great joy each day. I love to see people blossom as they heal!

I would love to know more about your work as well. May I add you to my blog list of favorites?
