My Saturday Gratitude Check-In: Autumn Weather

Can you believe it’s March already? I can’t. I’ve noticed a very definite change in the weather the past few weeks, but today is the most perfect early Autumn day and for that I am grateful.

If you’ve been following this series, you’ll know I missed last week. I have a good excuse. We went to the Clarens Craft Beerfest. When we left in the morning it was a little cool so I made the girls wear their jumpers. (That was a fun fight / parenting moment! NOT.) By around midday, we were boiling hot! We had arrived too late to find any shady spots so we were sitting right in the sun. I could actually feel the heat burning me through my dark jeans and I had a very shiny face! My poor husband’s bald head is peeling now. He got so burnt, eventually he went and paid R250 for a cap! It’s fair to say that we went unprepared and suffered the consequences.

My Saturday Gratitude Check-In: My Husband

Last week I decided to start a Saturday Gratitude Check-in series. It’s more of a reminder to myself that even though adulting, parenting and life in general is hard, we need to remind ourselves that there is always something to be grateful for. This week I am grateful for my husband.

You can check out last week’s post where I spoke out how I was grateful for early morning cuddles with my girls, because basically it means that I am loved by them, even if it’s usually too early in the morning to be awake!

Back to my husband. Don’t get me wrong, he is a demanding person with extremely high standards! I often joke that I must be the most perfect woman on the planet, because only the most perfect woman in the world would be good enough for him!

My Saturday Gratitude Check-In

I’m starting a new weekend series where every Saturday I will recognize one thing I am grateful for! The Saturday Gratitude Check-In series will run every weekend and I hope you will all join in, in your own way so that we can all share something we are grateful for.

Today I am grateful for early morning cuddles with my girls.

As parents we often just want and need a few more minutes of sleep, especially on a Saturday morning after a hectic week. Continue reading “My Saturday Gratitude Check-In”
