Gratitude 364

Last July, I moved from a East facing room to a West facing room in Kitsilano. The West facing room, is smaller, warmer and in worst shape than the East facing room. But this is why I moved.
I am grateful to be able to admire those colors!

I started exercising in the last week of December 2015. I had made a New Year resolution in January 2015 to move more to help my body stay healthy. Later in the year, I talked to a colleague of mine who recommended starting with only one day a week of exercising instead of attempting to start with 4 or 5 days a week. That really worked for me and it was still a few month until I finally got to start.
So now it has been 4 full months since I started and I am starting to feel results: more strength, more stamina, more fun while I exercise. How does it get any better than that?
I had read somewhere that people who make New Year’s resolutions are more likely to succeed at them than people who don’t. Because some resolutions get left behind but some don’t.
I am grateful for New Year’s resolutions!

Today, I drove around the block to talk to the owner of this unusual dwelling:
John, he said his name was build a small home on the platform deck of a 1946  International Harvester KB-6 truck.
His home had huge Windows and a wood stove inside. I told him I was admiring his handy work and asked permission to take pictures for my gratitude post. So then we talk about gratitude and other stuff. It was awesome!
John told me that his tiny home was a recording studio. I only saw the front because the front door was opened and the stove and the kitchen were right there. There was a mixing thing that one would see in music studios. It was attached to the wall next to the kitchen…
I am grateful for the interaction!

I waited until the last minute to do my taxes. I remember when you had to add up every thing manually. Tax preparing software makes it so easy and so much faster.
Eventhough I love adding numbers, I am grateful for tax preparation software.
