views and gratitudes

this weekend is proving to be amazingly un-stressful and not what i had feared it would be. i'm done anything that needed to be done within the city....and have saved my last day before i go for cleaning, packing and wrapping pressies!

i'm so thankful for lists. my big ol' list makes it all feel so much less overwhelming. i got everything on my list done easily today, whereas two days ago i was sure i would i would be in complete chaos. fact at the moment i'm enjoying a delicious treat of french goat cheese on sesame rice crackers, cornichons and a glass of sweet white wine and feeling like i'm on holiday already.

i've been reflecting so much these days about what this year has been for me. it held unimaginable beauty. beauty that could not have occured without the really rough year and a half before it. thats gonna be a long post...but i'm already formulating it in my mind and look forward to getting it all from thoughts to words.

yesterday i got to hang out with my super amazing lovely pals who are 3 and a half. i've known them for a couple years and they are amazing little beings. i don't see them so often anymore so it was a real treat to have a day full of art-making and nature walks (i LOVE taking nature walks with kids...especially these two). so here is another addition to december views...which i must say i am thoroughly enjoying. i've recently started a photoblog but mainly to show my favourite stuff, kind of an informal online portfolio. but doing december views has been so good....just to share what i see. and to the lovelies that have commented...i'm super happy to make your aquaintence and be introduced to your blogs.

i'm heading out to watch some gay square dancing. yes, you read that right. some of the loveliest people i know in this city are part of the gay square dancing league. too cute! i'm so excited to see them dance!

so here are some of my views of a beautiful day!
