I am grateful that today I am finally feeling almost normal and that Serafina slept well the past few nights! What a difference sleep can make! I thought that I might almost not survive if this sickness lasted any longer. Today she smiles again and is a lot less cranky.
I am grateful that even though I was feeling so awful, I finished the work on my book last night and sent it away to my editor for one last final check! It is now finished and only needs to go to print once I get it back. Hopefully it will be in my hands soon, so keep your eyes open! 🙂
I am also grateful that I ever got so far with this project of mine and that I didn’t give up, even though it has been the craziest time of my life trying to write and test so many recipes while raising three little girls. I feel like I have so many jobs and am always so busy! It has been a long journey, but so worth it. All this time I said that I would never want to write another book, but now that it is coming to an end, I feel like I could do it again. I even wonder what I will do with myself once I am not so busy anymore.
I am grateful for all of the friends that I’ve made and the people that I’ve met through my blog who enjoy the recipes and have inspired me to write a cookbook and share my healthy vegan recipes with all of you too! I couldn’t have done it without you!
I am grateful for cake! I made this delicious cardamom date bundt cake last night and it is so absolutely amazing! I got the pan as a gift from Autumn and Kesa last Christmas and have never made a bundt cake before.
I am grateful for my husband who has been working a lot of overtime this week and also working the night shift for the past two weeks. I don’t know how he does it. He has also been so helpful during this past week that I have been sick.
I am grateful for evenings reading with my girls the Little House On The Prairie books. We are almost done book seven now.
For Kesa’s funny Christmas costume that she has to wear this year for her dance recital. She made us all laugh pretty hard when she tried it on and did her little Frosty the Snowman dance.
I am grateful that my little girl finally got brave enough to take more than just a few steps and last night decided to walk right across the room! I wonder if this will make life easier or harder now…
Wishing you all a lovely weekend! 🙂
Glad to hear you got some sleep and everyone seems to be feeling better, always good news. Enjoy your weekend.
