Gratitude question Day 7: What smell are you grateful for?

I’m grateful for the smell of flowers as I pass them by

They add beauty and fragrance to every day life

I’m grateful for the smell of freshly baked bread

Tempting me to cut it with a knife

I’m grateful for the smell of cookies as they bake

They make me want to eat

I’m grateful for the smell disperses that exist

That get rid of the smell of smelly feet

I’m grateful for the smell of the ocean waves

As they crash against the shore

I’m grateful for the smell of blossoms as they grow in spring galore

I’m grateful for the smells both good and bad

That can change my mood from sad to glad.

Gratitude challenge Day 7: Spend 30 minutes practicing self care.

I hope I remember this tomorrow. It’s after midnight – nearly 2am – so I’m deciding it’s a new day. If I’m not dizzy I’ll try put on a mud pack and then have a bath. Otherwise, or maybe both, I’ll try see a friend. I want some shopping though, so if I have time that is.


I’m aiming to do the gratitude challenge 2 or 3 times a week. I want to be able to enjoy doing it, when I have time, and have fun with it. If you join with your own posts get creative! Thank you to those who share your answers with me, who make it worth continuing! I’ve prepped the basics of the next few days posts – just wrote out the questions for myself- so hopefully it’ll be easier.


Love, light, and glitter

      1. Oh, love I cookies too and when I worked downtown before my boss and I moved, we had a little bakery on the main floor. Wow – we could get three small fresh-baked cookies in a little paper packet for a quarter) (0.25 pounds Sterling) (forgive me I forgot how to convert it even though I was on a site that did it for me. Love, light and glitter.

        1. A quarter is 25 cents which in those days was about 15 pence now closer to 20. You can’t buy things for that price anymore. Unless you are in the shekel shop. 1NIS is about 22 pence, nearly 30 cents probably.

          1. I wasn’t sure on the conversion and when I was in England, it was just a week, and it’s been 41 years, so wasn’t sure anymore. I think that guy could retire on what he sold in cookies every morning. Walk into the building, fresh chocolate chip cookies – they were the only kind he ever made, but you could not go without smelling them and people lined up out the building … why didn’t we think of that?

  1. I love the smell of books…and seeing sam’s comment I second that -the world after the rain has the most incredible smell… Grateful for those smells!
    Self care is not to be underestimated and it’s not always easy, maybe I’ll have a bath tonight and read a book…

    1. I forgot about the self care… I definitely posted this late! It’s a bit too late tonight. Unless time spent with a friend counts šŸ™‚
      Books smell awesome….
