The attitude of gratitude has been a huge influence on how I view life.
It has helped me gain perspective
and taught me to be content.
Our bungalow has been a "gift" in so many ways.
We have embarked on many projects over the years to improve and maintain
the interior and exterior in the historic arts and crafts style.
I had to learn to be patient as all the projects took time and money.
Time and patience have afforded me the opportunity to weed out and prioritize what is most important and helped me to figure out what I really wanted to focus on next.
I have been lusting after linen bedding for several years...
linen as you may already know is not an inexpensive undertaking.
I saved up for several months to purchase sheets and a duvet cover with shams.
When I found these at Lands" End on sale at 20% off I quickly placed my order.
We plan to redo our bedroom and build in a closet with drawers and doors.
The room is small and we plan to use wainscotting and paint the walls white.
The floor is dark fir and the bed and side tables are dark oak.
Blue and mocha will fit right in...
We slept on the linen bedding this week and I can say that I am so happy with the comfort and coziness of the sheets and they will just get softer with every washing.
Chester and Pepper are enjoying playing in the boxes...
I leave them in the kitchen on the floor for a few days as they love them so much.
How is your week going?
Are you following along with the new eating regime?
Have you been walking every day?
My leg muscles are a wee bit sore after amping up the pace on my walks.
The scale is not rapidly reflecting my new habits but I am not discouraged
as it is going in the right direction!
Try not to be obsessive about weighing every day.
I know the temptation is there...
when you do step on the scale do it at the same time every day
and try to wear the same clothes so you get an accurate reading.
( you may want to weigh in wearing only your "birthday suit")
Remember to drink lots of water.
Hope that you have some fun activities planned for the weekend.
