and embrace the rhythm and gentle flow of the summer hoildays I realize how much I savour the simple things...
fresh fruit is in abundance
breakfast is quick and easy
juicy ruby red plums
a sweet delight for the taste buds
one of my students gave me this peace lily plant
it is a perfect perk up for the corner of the laundry room
there is time to move slowly
no need for a frantic frenzied rush to accomplish things
I have a "do list" which I run wavy lines through when I finish a job
the silverware has been polished
drawers have been tidied
books have been sorted
there is more
tomorrow is another day
for now it is enough
Can you feel the ebb and flow of your daily round?
Chester is on the job!
Pepper and Chester love me working downstairs
they race around chasing their toy mice and jump in the laundry basket
often sneaking the opportunity when my back is turned to lie atop the freshly folded laundry.
I love the freshness of clean bedding
the softness of the cotton sateen as one slides between the sheets
such a simple pleasure
Mother always said to my sister and I
"no matter how poor you are soap and water are cheap"
Never underestimate the theraputic value of doing laundry or cleaning the house.
Don't forget to stand back and admire your handiwork once you have accomplished a task.
It will sustain you in ways that you may not have thought possible.
It works for me...
I have a simple way of looking at things
perhaps that makes me sound like a simpleton which is not how I intend it
hopefully you get my drift!
I've been wearing activewear most days to work in the garden
action domestic chores
walk my route...
I have a sneaking suspicion that this might be my new uniform
to get fitter one needs to wear the clothes!
I wore this OOTD when Mr. HB and I went to see the financial planner.
Style & Co. sweater
Franco Sarto sandals
It's time to book another pedicure...
one of the luxuries that I plan to keep in my retirement.
I gave up having my hair coloured...
the grey is creeping in around the temples
I quite like it.
We will be making some other financial changes
in the months to follow...
financial security is very important for peace of mind.
What's on your agenda for the weekend?
