Peu á peu

Some days are just filled with as much frustration as there are things to be grateful for.

It’s better to find sweetness in those small moments than to let the disappointments get you down.

I can do this.

Thankful for Little Things that make a Big Difference

Ferries to Macau are unbelievably noisy.

Treat Yo Self Part III

We work.

We celebrate.

We have a lot of fun.

We treat ourselves!

Books

I went to the bookstore again today.

Came home with three books.

My purpose there was not just to purchase books.

I also went to have a coffee today.

Drank a lovely little cup of coffee.

My purpose there was not just to drink coffee.

I went and did a bunch of things today.

Accomplished several tasks and errands.

But my purpose was not to complete tasks and run errands.

Day 336 & 337 – May 6 & 7, 2013

Having a heavy Peking style dinner on a Monday evening means a sleepless Monday night.
Thankfully, I made it through my big Tuesday workshop.

I am also grateful for…

1. A happy evening celebrating my friend Triny’s engagement.

2. Brutal honesty and the quality of being human Teflon – some things are not meant to stick.

3. The support work that my colleagues do behind the scenes.

4. A very successful workshop in spite of the politics involved.

5. Revisiting a great little cafe that serves great coffee.

6. Seeing the kids in a great happy mood.

7. Thinking about a holiday.

8. Funny conversations.

9. Great tandas at tango.

10. The beautiful time I have had at the Helena May, dancing tango. Thank you.

The Helena May.
I will miss the chandeliers.
