Kew Gardens 1st smile

Standard

In my post from 4th August I shared with you that I had become friends with Kew Gardens.

 

Last weekend

the sun was shining,

birds were singing,

and I felt free.

I made a quick decision

to visit Kew Gardens.

 

What a good choice!

I was greeted with this view.

 

Behind the Palm house was the rose garden.

For today I like you to go with me to smell the roses.

Forget the business and enjoy the smells and colours!

There is so much more……

Soon more from Kew Gardens

 

Washing up – Mindfulness Meditation

Standard

washing-up2For most of us

washing up is a chore.

But you can change that.

 

Make it your daily

mindfulness meditation routine.

 

Feel the warmth of the water caressing your hands

washing-up1

 

feel the soft bubbles,

move slowly around the plate,

smell the scent of the washing up liquid.

feel the smooth surface

enjoy the different shapes of the dishes

 

washing-up

be aware of the beautiful pattern on the plate,

dwell on the plate for a while,

think of how it got there.

Caress the spoon with your sponge,

feel the smoothness of the cleaned glass,

feel calm, don’t rush,

be conscious of the moment.

*****

Small every day tasks are not wasted moments

but part of precious moments we have in our lives.

Enjoy Washing up!
