Today…

By , July 4, 2012

Today, I am:

…enjoying that sweet bouquet of flowers plucked from the garden…

…noticing that Queen Anne’s Lace was probably not the best choice for an indoor bouquet because it’s dropping stuff all over the table…

…enjoying a very delicious breakfast salad of lettuce, green onions, cucumbers, avocado, and fresh pineapple, with salt and cracked pepper, lemon juice, orange juice, and balsamic vinegar…

…drinking a hot mug of pu-erh tea even though there’s 90-degree air breezing through the open window next to me…

…glad that Mountain Rose got pu-erh back in stock! I’ve missed it very much and just ordered more…

…noticing how good it feels to place an order the old fashioned way and send a check to Mountain Rose, instead of paying via credit card online…

…packing up treasures…

…taking time out to get re-inspired by this book, Lillian Too’s 168 Feng Shui Ways to Declutter Your Home. It gets me back into the mindset I like to be in when attacking piles of possessions: “Do I love this and absolutely want it? Does it pertain to who I am now?”

…looking at messes and piles that seem to breed in the night…

…glad that my Honey has the day off from work today; he deserves it…

…remembering that I have some soaked & solar-cooked quinoa in the fridge, waiting to be made into tabbouleh

…thinking it’s nearly time to close up the windows in favor of the comfort of our little air conditioner. It’s gonna be another hot one today…

♥ I hope you all have a relaxing holiday today ♥

    Hi, I know what you mean about piles that seem to appear overnight ; ) I try to keep them away as much as possible, but sometimes they are very sneaky ; )
    The salad looks very delicious and I’m going to have a look at the recipe for tabbouleh.
    Have a wonderful day.

    Hi Lindsey, I love the photo of your little pile of flotsom and jetsom that are your treasures, shells and sticks and pebbles, all natural objects. I love the way you can approach your “things” with a degree of objectivity about their place in your life now (that still challenges me). Good idea about Feng Shui to help establish your mindset. And despite all this, your piles still reproduce in the night, just like mine! Happy Moving! Love, Kate
