I know I’ve been doing a lot of winter whinging of late. I can’t seem to help it. I’m in some kinda winter hibernation coma you could say. I’d make a good wombat. It’s practically a certainty. Whilst it feels a bit tough, there’s always plenty to be thankful for, even when you know your perspective is a bit warped. That is a certainty too.
Flowers. They’re the best and quickest mood pick me up I know. A burst of colour and a touch of delicacy wins me over every time, thanks local flower farm.
The op shop. I swear, I don’t know where I would get my thrills if it wasn’t for my local thrift shops where I may be on a first time basis with a few of the attendants. I could write 60 posts on the wondrous treasures I have found for a few spare coins. I seriously experience a full blown adrenalin rush from a single dollar purchase. I am not the only op junkie. I have bonded with so many spunky people because of my passion for the second hand.
One of my latest finds…. a vintage pic for Little Vicks room
My local library. I have re-discovered the library recently and I have become quite the advocate. I even think I need to make myself a library bag which is why I borrowed these books of little inspiration this week. Great spot for the boy too as he too can borrow DVDs and books (instead of endless purchases). I just love the concept of giving stuff out on loan and trusting it will come back. When we live in this day and age where no one can be trusted to keep their word or return anything nearly, I just love that the library still believes.
My electric blanket. Could not survive the winter without having a warm bed ready for me. I would feeze up and snap right in half if I had to get into a chilly bed.
Pink gum boots. Perhaps I don’t have a huge practical need for these, but I love to put them on and stomp around anyway.
Milo. Don’t even get me started on the coffee vs tea issue. They’re redundant. Let it be said here. Coffee and tea are false prophets. Milo is the Messiah of them all.
AND the very last material thing I am thankful for on this Thursday is A TICKET TO DARWIN. Now that I am truly thankful for….. Catch you from the Top End Amigos!!
What little things are helping you through this winter?
