….. a day to do something ordinary but make it joyful

 

Many things in daily life are normal, and habit,

but with more attention they can turn into a little joy.

For example:

Put a fresh T-Shirt on – Smell and feel the freshness,

When you dry your hair – feel the warm air,

Wash your face – enjoy the water splashing on your skin.

 

 

 

Simple things can bring joy.

 

HaVe a VeRy JoYfuL DaY!

…a day to slow down…

 

Nature does not hurry,

yet everything is accomplished. 

Lao Tzu

 

 

 

 

We all dash from one place to another-

slow down with mindful walking.

Take slower breaths,

watch your feet as you place them on the ground,

and bring awareness to your body as it moves.

Take your time,

just as nature does!

Another Year – 7th Blogiversary

Standard

My blog is 7 years old and I am sort of archiving my old posts

onto another wordpress site as I don’t really want to lose any.

(not sure though if that is really necessary)

I just cut and paste so I don’t need space for pictures on that.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Looking through old posts and bloggers who followed is nice but also makes me sad.

Some have gone to heaven, may they rest in peace, they are not forgotten.

Some have just stopped blogging for an unknown reason,

some closed their blog, it does not even exist at all,

some made their blog private.

 

I enjoy blogging very much,

it makes me happy,

and if I can reach even one person who likes a bit of my posts,

I am happy.

I don’t always have time to read all blog posts I like .

I have made amazing friends all over the world, met some of you

and I will try to meet more of you personally.

To all my blogging friends

a super BIG THANK YOU

 

 

You don’t know how much you mean to me.

You have enriched my world in those last 7 years,

you have made me laugh, cry, think.

I learnt from you, you inspired me, you supported me

and showed me what a wonderful world it is

with you in it.

 

There is so much love and kindness out there

and we need to spread it as much as possible.

People need love, hugs, appreciation, kindness, peace, praise,

understanding and self esteem.

Let’s keep it going.

I feel truly blessed with all of you around me.

 

Love you all!

… a day to remember.

Today would be my mum’s 93rd Birthday.

I miss her very much.

When I visited my mum,

we used to play cards together

we used to do crosswords,

we sang together,

we talked together.

We phoned often and she would describe how the tree outside the window has grown.

she was a great dancer,

she had so much love,

she listened to all our stories,

we sang together often,

we laughed often.

 

Love never seizes.

Never forget to tell someone if you love them!

Sending you all so much love ♥♥♥

…a day to be a tourist!

Imagine you have never visited your hometown,

What would you do if you were visiting for the first time.

What would you visit?

What would you eat?

What would you want to see?

You can be a tourist where you live

Explore.

Notice.

Find a market, find a museum, find an art Gallery or slip into a church.

Notice the smells, the scents, feel the atmosphere.

Being a tourist wakes your curiosity and make you notice more around you!

 

 

Have an interesting day!

The love of my life begins with me.

I love and enjoy myself.

 

If we truly love ourselves
in spite of our flaws
then we can love others
in spite of theirs.

Garden changes

Standard

Inspired by Sally’s Blog – My beautiful things,

I really wanted to do my own Boody Garden.

I bought plants which should last a while and added my broken pottery.

 

As it looks now

 

I had some remaining bits

and I had to move my Parsley,

so I planted them into my old drawer.

Hopefully the Parsley comes again like last year.

 

It was so pleasant outside.

Sitting in the garden

listening to the  birds

is a wonderful recharge!
