What I've Been Up To (or Sunday Gratefuls)

It feels as if so many big and small things are happening, or may be happening, or being considered here these days. In the past few weeks I...
  • decided to extend my leave from work by another month, giving myself the month of December to continue resting and being; I now return to the office in January 2010
  • set a tentative target date to transition from my current job to being my own boss; once I commit fully I'll make that date public here :)
  • opened myself to the option of buying a house in a small town next year vs. renting in city
  • obtained my vendor's permit, scans of a few original pieces and priced the paintings that are hanging at my hair salon; tomorrow I start working on the prints
  • toyed with the idea of hosting Christmas dinner this year, after a few quick enquiries it looks like it might happen
  • continued decluttering the house and collected a surprise $81 for items sold at the consignment shop last Monday (YAY!)
  • practised rest, trust and action through "clean lines of quiet movement"
  • caught up on my finances
  • found joy in the play of a friend's puppy, a breakfast date with a dear friend, a clutter-free medicine cabinet (it's true!) and much much more
A full few weeks, non? What surprises me is that I feel balance and peace instead of the usual overwhelm and urgency that would come with such a list. For that I am grateful.

What have you been up to these days? Tell me.


  1. wow. You have a lot going on, so many good things, and yet I can feel the serenity you speak of. I'm so happy for you and I can't wait to hear more!


  2. SO exciting, Stephanie! I can't wait to see what unfolds for you!

  3. Wow! Big excitement. Your world is shifting on its axis and you are totally balanced, dare I say dancing even! Enjoy the journey and the joy! xo
