I have had my nose firmly planted in The American Heiress and am completely wrapped up in the plot.
Life is pretty much in the slow lane here right now and there's not a lot happening.
I have been getting up and sipping a mug of good coffee while reading my favourite blogs.
I've noticed how the light changes the colours emanating from the garden as the sun moves slowly overhead.
Time to relax and restore.
Time to ponder all that gifts that daily life can bring.
Time for gratitude.
with a pace that brings with it peace and freedom to choose what to do each day.
Time to stop and smell the flowers.
It's funny really when I think about it,
I don't really need to go away to have a great holiday.
I am ever so happy in our wee Humble Bungalow Home and Garden.
With ample time to tend to the domestics without the crazy schedule of working
working seems to complicate my life...
stress just ebbs away when summer holidays arrive.
As I age I feel more like listening to my inner voice
which seems happiest here at home
going about my daily round slowly
methodically with measured breaks
time just to sit and be still
Gosh this post rather got away from me
it's not quite what i had intended but them sometimes that happens...
I'll close for now
find some calm place to sit and reflect on all that is good today.
