I hope I am in time for Michelle’s challenge.

We have in our school some eggs to show children how chicks come alive.

Adults and children are excited

  3 hatched last night and 2 today.

They are so sweet and I tried to capture them.

These 3 hatched last night:

T – Take powernaps. Talk wisely

t7Power naps

When to power nap?

Most scientific research on restorative nap indicates that the best time for a short doze is at midday. Some people take it before lunch but most will wait until right after lunch, at this time digestion compounds with time of the day. This is a point in your circadian cycle (your body natural sleep regulation rythm) where you already have a natural tendency to fall asleep. Don’t delay your nap, napping after 4 or 6pm might degrade your night sleep or reduce your sleep quality.

How long?

For most people a 20 minute power nap is optimal, some might prefer adding a 5 to 10 minute buffer to allow extra relaxation time before the actual nap. This is probably useful if you feel stress or difficulties to let go. It is up to you to fine tune your nap environment in order for you to find the perfect restorative sleep.

Love the pillow!

Fantastic

Talk wisely

Be impeccable with your word.

Speak with integrity.

Say only what you mean.

Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.

Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

S – Smile. Sleep. Simplicity

Oh I love smiling….

and could talk all day about it but here some of my favourites smile quotes:

Smile – It’s the second best you can do with your lips.

Smiling is my favourite exercise.

A smile is something you can’t give away; it always comes back to you.

It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body… the heart.

A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.  Charles Gordy

Everyone smiles in the same language.

People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile.  Lee Mildon

Wear a smile – one size fits all.

You’re never fully dressed without a smile.  Martin Charnin

A smile can brighten the darkest day.

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Mother Teresa

Simplicity

simple

“Life gets better when you SIMPLIFY !!!!!!! Remove the clutter, excess, unnecessary and everything that does not serve you well; and you will feel better. Things were meant to serve us, but these days it seems more that we serve things.

How about de-cluttering your mind?

Get rid of negative, unpleasant thoughts; make room for positive, cheerful thoughts.

Get rid of unwanted memories; make room for new memories.

Get rid of destructive, angry thoughts; make room for loving, happy thoughts.

It’ll feel as good within yourself as tidying your closet.

Wishing you  a surprising and super day!

I have had busy weeks and even in my  holiday I have been busy so I haven’t been reading blogs as much lately.

I had my God – Daughter staying with me and I showed her around London.  We had a great time together and so much fun, saw many places, went to the Theatre, visited Mme Tussauds, shopped in Harrods (not really)  and walked miles to see the typical London sites.  She liked it very much and wants to come again, I am very happy!

 In Madame Tussauds I met some great people:

I had breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn

This was our Christmas Party in the Holiday Inn where I worked for 2 years.

I guess it was the start of my dancing passion….  🙂
