Sanguine Saturday

My nephew turned four this week. Happy birthday, little man. And I go for another skin graft next week - planning to take my laptop, this time, but I don't know how much internet I'll end up using.

Success Stories:
I could have chosen to ignore health advice and not consented to a skin graft, but instead, I made the choice that looks after my physical health needs.

I've done a little bit more sorting through of my things.

Even though I haven't much felt like it, I've been doing some Pleasant Event scheduling.

Gratitudes List/Things that make me happy:
Scrapbooking supplies.
All three children told me today that their favourite animal is the giraffe. (I've taught them well!)
Terry Pratchett.

Cheer-leading statements:
Just because something isn't possible right now doesn't mean it won't ever happen.
It's okay to take baby steps. Baby steps are still steps!

Take care of yourselves until next time, and may we all find our own small fences along the way.


  1. I love that giraffes always make you happy. That's so much fun.

  2. "It's okay to take baby steps. Baby steps are still steps!"
    i think that sometimes, they are even preferable to larger steps.
