30 Days with a Grateful Heart: Day 18 & 19

The last couple of days have been whirlwind, all great stuff, but the days have been full.  Yesterday Ethan and I had fun shopping for our little guy Francis who told us in a serious voice this evening "Santa gets everything on your wish list"...oh oh...Santa will do his best!!  Last night we had a wonderful evening catching up with friends Doug and Savanna, and some friends of theirs.  We had a potluck and it was perfect!  I am always amazed when all the dishes complement each other!  Perfect!  This morning I had kind of a hangover from running around all day/night yesterday.  Let's just say I was having one of those days - as in - "some days are like that - even in Australia" * (in my case of course they are I'm from Australia, if I wasn't here, I'd be there having one of those days!!).   I was definitely feeling tired, but also frustrated by the clutter in our small home, the same home that is also a work space and which currently has a life-sized longhorn cow in the living room!!  It has actually worked out rather well, but we moved the work station to the living room so that we can have a cozy lounge area with the Christmas tree.  That meant there was stuff everywhere and it was a mess.  So, when all was quiet this evening, I just got to work and puttered.  This evening I am grateful for the quiet peace of our little home.  It feels just right! And now I'm ready for bed!
