The Gratitude Challenge

gratefulI have been working on my SHARE-YOUR-WORLD post for this week. But I have decided to split it up into two posts because it was growing mighty long!

So this is my post in response to one of the questions Melanie gave us, and tomorrow I will publish the rest of my SHARE-YOUR-WORLD for this week.

Melanie, the creator of sparksfromacombustiblemind, gave us a gratitude challenge as well as a gratitude question this week. So this post is my response to the gratitude challenge! This is Melanie’s original post:

…and this is what she said regarding THE GRATITUDE CHALLENGE:

I found this interesting challenge and did it myself.  I’m offering these questions as a gratitude challenge for those who care to do it.    You can answer in text or photo.

What a great challenge! So here is my attempt at THE GRATITUDE CHALLENGE!!!

SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME HAPPY

Goldfinch! I don’t need to explain do I!!

SOMETHING TO GIVE TO SOMEONE ELSE TO MAKE THEM SMILE

Why a genuine smile is the best thing to give to someone to make them smile!

SOMETHING I LOVE TO SMELL

Wisteria

As soon as I open my front door, I can smell the wisteria that grows up the side of the house next door. It looks so pretty and smells delightful.

SOMETHING I ENJOY LOOKING AT

I love looking at the stars! I don’t see many in London skies. So when I go somewhere that has less light pollution, I am transfixed by the stars. I wonder whether Goldfinch might find me some starry skies when I am with him in Australia.

SOMETHING THAT IS MY FAVOURITE COLOUR

I love paua shell – I love blues and green and greeny blues and bluey greens.

SOMETHING THAT I AM THANKFUL FOR IN NATURE

Where do I begin?

 

I love so much in creation!

SOMETHING I CAN USE TO MAKE A GIFT FOR SOMEONE

ingredients

Most of the gifts I give to other people are edible. I make cakes or biscuits (usually after checking what the favourite flavours of the recipient is).

SOMETHING THAT IS USEFUL TO ME

 

All of these are very useful to me in different ways. I feel as if bras are probably the most important of these – I would not be willing to leave the house without one!

Great challenge isn’t it! Hope you are going to have a go too!

  1. When my mom and I were travelling in Brazil years ago, she commented on how the southern hemisphere starry sky looked different than the northern hemisphere. I couldn’t tell the difference – I just think stars look amazing whatever half of the world you’re looking from! I grew up in a small town but live in a big city now, and definitely miss being able to get a good view of the stars.

    1. They are so beautiful…it’s funny how moving it is to see a sky full of stars. There are few places I have been where I have had the chance to see hundreds upon hundreds of stars.
      I can’t think of anything I would love more than star-gazing with Goldfinch.

    1. I was just chatting with some Australian clients asking them what to pack for their winter. I told them Goldfinch doesn’t see why I need to pack any clothes at all.

      Hmm.

      They seemed a bit shocked when I told them. :/

  2. When I was 24 … I remember climbing with a girl who during winter would climb in T-shirt’s, gloves and shorts. She claimed fleece lined underwear was all you really needed. I suspect that the minimalist clothing approach gets you through customs much quicker. Make sure you take your camera though.
