January Gratitude ... #GratitudeCircle #MicroblogMondays #MondayMusings #openslather

January has flown by so quickly. It's been a good month and there are many things to be grateful for.

This year I chose nice surprises as my words for the year. I am grateful for the many nice surprises that came my way. But that's a post for another day.

I am grateful for 4 weeks of rest and relaxation. I enjoyed my holidays though I did not go anywhere. It was good to chill at home with the family, good to laze around, wake up late, do some artwork and crafting, read, and watch TV. And it was also good to catch up with friends.

Grateful to my mother for knitting a baby cardigan for a workmate's new born baby. My mum is awesome at knitting. It's her hobby. She also knits for the hospital neo natal intensive care unit and donates her knitted work to them via our local community centre.

still a work in progress but should be finished in a couple of days.

and here is the finished product

And last but not least, today I am grateful for the cooler weather. It has been so hot, we've been melting.

Hope your January has been awesome. Share some of your special moments.

  1. Wonderful month for you with rest and crafting. the sweater knitted by your mom is so cute.

    1. Thanks Mahathi I truly enjoyed my holiday.

  2. I am always envious of people who can knit such beautiful things. I would not know where to start.
    Yay for chilling at home. I am doing that today, however it's not exactly chilling because I have swept and mopped every floor after the aftermath of the school holidays when I hardly cleaned at all.

    1. Thanks Alicia. I can knit a scarf but that's about it. I am in awe of those who can knit. Chilling is the best :)

  3. Such a lovely sweater and i liked your mum's idea of donating warm cardigans to the neo natal hospital.

    1. Thanks Neha. Yes seva work is good to do.

  4. Sometimes it is the simplest things in life that we must remember to be most grateful for, isn't that so! Glad you enjoyed your time at home! Lovely sweater knitted by your mother. I am sure your colleague will appreciate it very much.

  5. Your mother's knitting is absolutely stunning. I love the pattern and the colour. Thankful Thursday

    1. Thanks Shirley. She does knit well and it turned out so pretty.

  6. I love the idea of doing a monthly gratitude post! What a great way to reflect on all the positive things. That sweater your mom knitted is adorable! She is very talented.

    1. Thanks Amber. I guess it's a good way to train your brain to look for the good things in life.

  7. Oh I love that sweater. Tiny clothes are so endearing, makes you want to have a bay all over again :-). Glad that January has been good to you, mine hasn't been bad either. I love your words for the year.

  8. That sweater is just precious. The act of knitting and giving away is as precious.

    Glad you have had a peaceful first month of 2018.

  9. Happy to have come across your blog through the gratitude circle linky. Loved the baby cardigans.
