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