Counting my blessings.

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Last week we had a beautiful sunrise I'd like to share with all of you!



I reminds me that when there are clouds in the sky it creates beauty.
Having had an upset last week, we have experienced numerous unexpected blessings. People being helpful and kind, friendships deepened and renewed contact with family members.
It shows that even an adverse situation creates blessings.
I am very thankful for many things and my list keeps growing.

Chicken curry

Monday, January 24, 2011

Yesterday we had the chicken curry our friend brought over for lunch. It is always interesting to try someone elses cooking :) This was delicious and DH will enjoy the leftovers for lunch today.



We are blessed with friends who support us and help us. It was really nice to have a prepared lunch - all I had to do was cook the rice!

    I have been craving chicken curry. I used to eat once a week when I lived in England many, many years ago.

Breakfast on the deck

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Yesterday late afternoon some friends came over bearing chicken curry for our lunch today. They stayed for about an hour and we chatted over a bottle of wine.
This morning DH was feeling much better and fancied a croissant for breakfast from the little breakfast place we go to now and then. He wasn't quite up to eating out yet, so I ran out and go some to go.
Croissant with bacon, tomato and swiss cheese - DH's favorite :)



We had it with coffee outside on the deck, watching the boats go by in the bay. We're going to have a quiet day today, enjoying the sunshine

Have a great weekend!

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Wishing all my spark friends a great weekend!!
I started the day with a challenging yoga session and I know I'll feel my tummy muscles tomorrow - planks tend to do that to me. The side planks are the hardest and today I managed them without putting my lower knee down for support, even when balancing on my left hand. Progress!!

    The good news? I don't feel my tummy muscles this morning, only a slight twinge in the triceps :)

    I'm beginning to think there's more to yoga than sitting and meditating and going "Ohm..." every few minutes.

Yoga keeps me sane

Friday, January 21, 2011

This last week has been very stressful and we may have to change our life around completely. I find that taking half an hour for myself every morning to do my yoga keeps me focused and calm. When stress hits me during the day I control my breathing and visualize part of the session helps me.

Life can change in a moment... make the most of it while you can!
Don't wait till "the time is right", that time may never come.
