Weekly Inspiration No – 26 – Beauty

Standard

 Beauty is all around us! 

Open your eyes and look at things with

a open and positive mind.

Even daily things look beautiful.

The sky from my window

showed amazing cloud formations and colour!

 

 

Everything has its beauty 

but not everyone sees it.

Weekly inspiration No 23 – Meditating tips

Standard

To begin your day this way

is the best way.

Meditation helps tremendously here.

I have recently  found a fantastic free App for my Smart phone

called Insight Timer.

It gives you the choice of guided meditations

or timed meditations.

On the featured meditations

there are some for stress,

mindfulness,

gratitude,

body scans,

sleep

and many more.

I have done some sleep ones too and they are just amazing.

 

You have a profile and collect stars for consecutive days of meditation.

 

With this App , I am eager to meditate every day,

whereas before I wanted to but didn’t always get around to it.

I always find time to do it now.

 

I feel great and calmer, more mindful, peaceful, happy  and less stressed.

 Have a go and check it out.

With love

from me

My garden changed again

Standard

My small garden needed some more care.

After the new fence was done,

I decided to have some decking down to hide a grey concrete floor.

We worked hard to get it all done.

We made it very quick really.

but now it needed rearranging….

so I moved pots, potted new plants, and changed things around.

I am happy with this now!

You can see the left side is my “Strawberry Field”

Through an inspiration from Sartenata’s Blog,

I used some old shoes to pot plants in.

Also I made a planter from an old pallet and painted it.

Now there is parsley and mint on one side and petunias on the other.

I do love my tea cups in the garden too!

 

Here is more detail in the slideshow.
