Positive Vibes

I wasn't planning to do a blogpost today but I woke up with a case of the blahs. There's no getting around it - the kids have been back at school for over a week, summer is over and autumn is well and truly on its way. Rain, rain and more rain. Autumn is my least favourite season (yes, yes, I know Emma and Candace will disagree). For me it's a case of just gritting my teeth and getting through it, until - hooray - the Christmas preparations can begin in earnest. In October! :)

So in order to keep my head up, I've made a list of five things which have made me happy/smile today. I've been thinking for a while that I ought to do this 'positive vibes' thing on a daily basis. Well, as the Flylady says, you're never behind, just jump in where you are... Here are my five for today:

  • I met several SDDs at the schoolgates at 8am this morning. SDD stands for Sexy Domesticated Dad... ;D
  • All this rain and dark grey skies means that it's perfectly acceptable to light lots of candles at 9.30 in the morning.
  • I made some mini meatballs/tomato sauce and put it in the crockpot for our dinner tonight. Smells yum. We'll have it with tagliatelle and lashings of grated cheese. Comfort Food Rools! :)
  • The builders who are remodelling our bathroom told me I can use the skip outside for general rubbish. I've been doing a major Flylady declutter/furniture move in my office...DH took a carload to the dump on Sunday but now I can fling, fling, fling!
  • I bought a pair of black suede ankle boots on Friday. A teeny bit scared - not worn ankle boots since the 1980s - but am taking them out for a test drive right now for the school pickup :D

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

Supper sounds wonderful! My kind of comfort food. Your boots look amazing--maybe you'll be getting some looks from those dads! It's raining here, too. It's stopped me from my "gotta get done" task today so I'm regrouping.

Have a great day Diane!

Love the comment about the SDD's, LOL! You are too funny! I wish my kids were still in school ;)

LOVE those sassy boots...you won't be sorry! Wear them w/ skinnies, tights and skirts/dresses.

I wanted to tell you....YOU inspired this week's Style Mission! It's a scaredy cat challenge to wear something you are afraid to wear. Perhaps your fashion forward new boots fill the bill!

Thank you for your inspiration & happy you are back w/ your cute blog!
