I thought it might be nice to have a place to share the highlight of your day (even if it's found in a fleeting moment)
For me today, the highlight of my day was finishing the most annoying round of crochet in a blanket I have been working on for months. This round has taken me so long and I've found it so frustrating that I didn't think I would ever finish the project. Stitch by (incredibly frustrating) stitch it came together. Super excited to get to change colours and start the next round now!
Looking forward to hearing anyone else's highlights

So glad you started this thread, @CheerBear! I hope to be here many days.
Highlight of today for me was going around the corner to have takeaway dinner with my friends. It's the usual little group of three and we've been doing these dinners at least once a week for almost ten years. We've all got our life challenges but there's always some laughter between us. Tonight we had Japanese.

Love it @Mazarita - 10 years! That's awesome
Go @Former-Member - great to hear (and see)!
I too hope to be here most nights. I'm going to make an effort to find that moment before I go to sleep I think!
Thanks for sharing!

Love this thread @CheerBear! Excellent idea The highlight of my day today was spending some quality time with me, myself and I - reading a new book I got for my birthday! Such a lovely relaxing way to spend some time this afternoon.
Sidenote: @Former-Member, I'm around today until midnight! I saw on a previous thread that you were also able to do some mindfulness today, even though you were so busy with ferrying the S's around!! I'm really glad Hope you're well.

@CheerBear, also meant to say congrats on your persistence and patience with the crochet. I have a jumper I have knitted for my companion. I'm taking a very long time to sew it up as I'm not a good sewer. Maybe you will inspire me to finish it!
@Former-Member, have to say again how great it is that you have been feeling better today. Awesome that your son is making it with the best players.
Hi @Former-Member, happy birthday for recently. Wonder what you book you got. Cool that you enjoyed that quality time.

Thank you so much @Mazarita! It's a book called Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davies. Set in my favourite place in the world- Scotland. Very much enjoying the journey to another time and place!!
It's so nice you can keep in touch with the same group of friends for so long... A rare thing in my experience, so you must have a really lovely relationship with them

hahaha @CheerBear that made me giggle! I'm so glad your knitting/crocheting skills are better than mine.. I think I gave up after a fortnight!! I'd love to see your work if you feel up to posting a picture of the finished product?
