We are fortunate to live in a quiet area not far from the city centre...
buffered by Beacon Hill Park and the seafront is a couple of blocks away.
Birdsong, wind, and some local traffic sounds are what we usually hear.
Our peace and quiet has been disrupted by the heavy equipment that is on site next door excavating the lot for the construction of two homes.
You can see our bungalow and the close proximity to the digger.
A steady stream of trucks come by to transport the dirt...
It is rather like a truck parade.
The streets are streaked with mud
it has been raining so there are many muddy puddles.
I have been leaving home seeking peace and solace elsewhere.
Healthy lunch post Yoga today...
2 egg omelette
Eaten in peace while the operator was on his lunch break.
Thank goodness for this timely gift.
The Yoga Studio
I am able to breathe deeply
sit on the mat
close my eyes
perform restorative poses
follow through the fluid sun salutation movements
restore inner peace and help achieve a sense of calm.
For this I am grateful...
There is an abundance of beauty in our neighbourhood.
Despite the rain I am getting out for my walks.
The noise and chaos next door is a great motivator!
a smokey liquid that has an intensity that awakens the taste buds.
This large Emma Bridgewater mug in the Black Toast pattern makes me smile.
You can see my Spring and Summer shade of Lipstick
Next time I go to the pharmacy I am going to try to find a pink shade.
I'll ask the gals on staff as they are super helpful
it would be nice to have another colour on hand.
Hellebores are putting on a great display in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
So that's about all the news from The Humble Bungalow...
what's new with you?
I'll be back soon.
