#273 It’s Okay

As I live my life, day to day, I am actively asking questions. I ask them of myself and of others. I feel good about having the ability to change. Change my mind, change what I’m doing or just try something new. It’s okay to try something new. It’s okay to do something different, to…

#272 Enrichment

After spending time with my good friend, I feel a sense of being renewed. I have come away with new ideas. Sharing our thoughts through conversation has enriched my life. We have shared knowledge and resources with one another and it is such a beautiful way to learn. It’s always interesting to me, how others…

#271 Away

Tonight I’m away from home with my family and spending precious time with another family of people I love 🙂 I’m pretty happy. We have been talking and laughing, eating and making a bonfire to roast marshmallows. There is music and joy. Lots of joy. xo

#270 Beauty

Not much to say this evening. I do have a picture to share though. Enjoy my beautiful flowering orchid. xo

#269 Curveball

This morning life threw us a little curveball in the form of Mr Notebook being laid off from the company he’s been working for. He really loved his job there but unfortunately they are scaling back and the team he was on is being disbanded as they do not have enough work to go on…

#267 Watercolour

I recently picked up a little watercolour pan set and a small watercolour paper pad. I’m not really very artistic but I’ve found that just playing around with the paint and water is very calming. I like having some background music too. There is so much great music in the world and a myriad ways…

#266 Carried Away

I’m really enjoying the novel I’m currently reading. It’s such an interesting story and nothing I could have imagined before I began. Some stories are jewels to be cherished. I love getting carried away by a gripping storyline. xo

#265 Little Adventures Big Mistakes

Heading out of the house, to somewhere new is a welcome adventure. One thing I love about Mr Notebook is his knowledge of our local area. He spent his older childhood years here and knows of all sorts of places to go to. I like that many of them are near water. At about 3pm…

#264 Baking as a distraction

Baking is lovely. You get to be creative and end up with something delicious. If you need a distraction, I’m here to declare that it is a wonderful diversion. If you have all of the most often used ingredients in your pantry and an oven, or even a slow cooker, or an air fryer, or…
