we had a beautiful weekend...so very relaxing.
and i'm sure it was because we prepared and cleaned our home
for weekend company on friday afternoon...(i even did some windows !)
ian's family came for brunch and the kiddos had some friends drop by
to hang-out and test run a new video game.
uncluttered, organized and vacuumed... and it remained like that
long enough for me to thoroughly enjoy it.
we really must have company over more often.
now, hello monday!!!
with renewed energy and a fresh perspective,
i'm saying hello to the brand new week and all the gifts it has to offerhello coastal walks...the swiftsure international yacht races are over, and our coast is clear once again !!! there are several beaches not too far from our house - and lately, i've been drawn to them.
hello sugar detox...i'm into my fourth day of eliminating sugar from my meals and snacks and i'm feeling great. goodbye chocolate almonds, hello bosc pears, blueberries, plums and all of mother nature's lower glycemic sweets.
hello clothesline...you will be busy drying all my duvets and covers this sunny week (the weatherman better be right!!!)
hello shoe shopping...we are slowly preparing for a summer trip that will need really comfortable walking shoes (there are so much to choose from...the trick is finding ones that teens will agree to wear)
hello making time to breath and collect my thoughts...with the ending of school and coming of exams my teens are feeling anxious lately. by breathing deeply and being extra mindful, i'm hopefully teaching them, by example, some healthy coping mechanisms.
hello everyone... i'm almost at the bottom of this mug of coffee, then i'm ready.
