Rem and I had a wonderful meander yesterday. We started at the Petaluma Pie Company.
We had egg and bacon hand pies. I slurped a little too quickly on my delicious hot chocolate and burned my throat, but it’s fine now.
Rem took some photos while I goofed around on this fountain.
We strolled around and did some window shopping.
From a Christmas shop to a display of Valentine items.
I didn’t get a photo but we saw a family with a nine-year-old boy riding a unicycle!
I found a few little goodies in a paper & gift shop, Paperwhite, including a butterfly charm for my charm bracelet.
After a few hours in Petaluma, we drove out to Bodega Bay and had lunch at Spud Point Crab Company, right across the street from Spud Point Marina. This spot was recommended by a friend and it was our first time. We had crab sandwiches. Very nice.
Lovely day, nice memories.
I have an idea to help me focus on wonderful memories, such as these and less on the things that don’t always work out how I would like.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to be a little hard on myself. I seem to remember my mistakes more easily than remembering all the good stuff.
This year, I am creating a Gratitude Jar and every week I’ll write down good things that have happened to me or that I’ve done. This might include
- Accomplished Goals
- Romance Shared
- Funny Moments
- Surprise Gifts
- …and any other little memory that is worth saving but might slip through my mental cracks
I’m going to spend a few minutes every Sunday writing something down, nothing fancy, just a slip of paper with a few lines.
It will be my thanks bank. I will make a deposit every week and at the end of the year, I’ll have a whole jar full of wonderful things to read through.
It was also a nice little craft project to round out my weekend.
Isn’t this little tag sweet? It was with a Christmas gift and I painted over “Merry Christmas” and added the music and “merci,” then layered it onto the orange printed paper.
Thanks for your visit.
