"Be Thankful" Tuesdays

Some of the small and big things I love and am thankful for
  • The feeling of accomplishment when you complete something before the deadline.
  • That butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling when you see THAT person.
  • Oversized sunglasses.
  • My hair finally being long enough to braid again.
  • My "Turn the Wheel of Time" tote bag that I got through Facebook.
  • Super-hot showers.
  • Having my own bedroom, after sharing with a roommate for 5 years.
  • Being selfish and blowing off an evening's plans to spend the night on the couch with series, chocolate and wine.
  • Fresh summer fruit. Currently addicted to strawberries and peaches!
  • Flowers everywhere! Especially my birthday orchid, and the pink pot plant on my desk at work.
  • My chemistry reactions finally working again!!! :)
  • My brother and flatmate. Who puts up with my nonsense 24/7 - and still washes the dishes.
  • Red wine ♥
  • All the crazy and amazing chemists I work/study with. Some mornings, the only thing pulling me through is the thought of lunchtime in the quad.
  • My smartphone (a Samsung Galaxy SII). After going through 10 dumbphones in as many years, this one has changed my life!
  • Going back to the parental homestead for Saturday/Sunday, spending time with the family, going to church and just relaxing. Best.
  • Camembert with preserved figs/watermelon.
  • Free perfume samples!
  • Raiding my mom's wardrobe for vintage gems.
  • My folding fans - a chic way of staying cool in the Stellenbosch heat.
  • My MSc supervisor being back from his sabbatical in Germany.
  • Cream.
  • Being a fairly competent baker.
  • Sitting on my balcony and watching the stars.
