It has been another busy teaching and tutoring filled week. This morning for Fave Fives, I'm reminding myself of the slow down blessings.
1. Evening walks with The Professor. We walk almost three miles as many evenings as we can. If we miss those slow down walks for too many days, our lives are too busy.
2. On Veterans Day, The Professor earned a free breakfast at Denny's and a free coffee at Starbucks. Since he had the day off from teaching, we spent some time in mid morning relaxing with our coffees. I had a free one, too, so I splurged. Venti Soy Peppermint Mocha. That doesn't happen often. It was good to slow down enough to enjoy our coffees and each other (although I did take my papers to correct)
4. I love those slow down moments talking with my daughters. Usually it's by phone. I'm truly thankful for phone technology. When I lived in Indonesia at the end of the world, we had no phones, so I couldn't talk to my mom. I treasure those phone calls.
5. I force myself to slow down daily and knit. I'm making Weasley sweaters for all the grandkids, This week I bought yarn for our Little Warrior's grey and orange Weasley sweater. The Princess's purple sweater is finished, and The New Boy's black sweater is half done. PAL's is in the planning stages. Photos as soon as possible. I love having a slow down project like this.
How have you slowed down your week to bless others and notice the blessings you receive?
