JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 40 :: en-joy

11 Feb
{the journey}

My dear friend Diane wrote me and asked me to look up the definition of “enjoy” — so I did.

en·joy
take delight or pleasure in (an activity or occasion).

I like it. It fits so nicely with my promise this year. And it has me thinking about the importance of enjoying the little moments and the big moments — as well as the crazy, stressful, terrorizing ones too.

What if we could enjoy every moment. Every. Single. Moment. I suppose that would be living in the present. The right now.
This moment.

Justin once told me, a long time ago, that life was just the two of us in a car and the rest was scenery. He meant we would get through it…. and get through so much we have, together.

As we bought a new car yesterday and we drove it off the lot and into our life I thought about that saying again.

“It’s you and me in a car and everything else is just scenery.”

I rather enjoy our new car’s heated leather seats but I know what matters most is the scenery, the person you’re driving with, and enjoying every moment that goes by.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 27 :: joy, oh, joy

27 Jan
{finger crocheting}

In the category of things that bring me joy…. there is this. Finger crocheting. That’s right. Thick yarn. So soft. So big and chunky. I’m pretty sure I’m doing it all wrong. I’m pretty positive that I have already messed it up. And I am confident that my corners and turn are downright uneven.

But I still love it. And it brings me joy.

Maybe that’s the whole point.
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 4 :: joy of bathing

4 Jan
{good news}

There’s good news when it comes to joy … it can help burn calories! According to an article I read today…. A New Study Says Taking a Hot Bath Burns As Many Calories As a 30-minute Walk.

So I put it to the test tonight. Hot bath (and hot brownies!). Who knows if it burnt any calories. But I do know this — I didn’t burn the brownies! I think it’s pretty joyful to relax in bubbles and then bask in the warm of brownies fresh out of the oven.

Bubbles and brownies unite! Who cares about the calories when you have joy at your side?

Here’s to the joy of relaxing.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
