Say Yay! Say Yay!!

Sprinkle it where you wish

I'm excited. It's Friday. Say YAY!!

Declutter is the plan for the weekend. We hold onto so many things for the memories of times and people long long gone. Let go or at least put it some place else until you can let go. This is a note to self more than anything else.

Saw this link on decluttering your home and I may be using some of these handy tips today or this weekend at least. So many new treasures to be discovered. Decluttering often takes me so long, because I get distracted with things I find in the process.

Here are some more discoveries from my week on the internet:

Piper Winston is a blog I discovered this week. Great recipes and I think I like the aesthetic
Marina Abromavić on aging 
Working hours are always up for debate
Flossing  should be a habit
Are you up for a glass of charcoal juice (food fads going too far?)

Have a wonderful weekend

10 Minutes

Time moves so fast. The years keep streaming by. I just realised how old I am in years today. I feel nothing like that at all. Finally over 30! Is that scary? No not really. Just thinking about all the things I still have to do, okay all the things I want to do. No have to do. I'm one of those people, if it enters my mind and stays there longer than a fleeting moment, I will at some point in my life commit to it.

Task list of life much?! Listen it works for me. Mostly! No pressure though. Just the pressure I put on myself. Which is about the size of a Roman army on a full day of battle :) Crazy, little button I am.

Accomplishments. I like these. Only for myself though. They make me feel better. I feel I need challenges. I'm terrible at not getting stuff right.

How much time to I give myself though, to just be. How many of us do that? I sent a wonderful friend of mine a message earlier wishing him an awesome day. He responded saying he's trying, but the day is crazy. All I wanted to say back was, STOP the glorification of busy. I think readers so far, are all too aware how little I like the word and concept of busy. I usually say I'm busy to insult someone or be snide. Terrible I know. The more I grow, the more I prioritise and do what's important in order of what is needed for me. I make time and put in effort for what and who is important to me. I'm important to me and more and more, I'm putting in more time for that. I'm here with my marvellous Me for the long haul, BEST we get to know each other.

Cup of Jo is on my must read blog list. She's awesome and today she's talking about writing a love letter. I need one of those. I think though, I'll write one to myself. Maybe I'll even post it, if I am brave enough to share it. Mm... Think a little series would be cool.

Anyhoo, the myriad of thoughts that pervade this mind of mine digress. I saw this meditation post on her blog. Meditate for 10 minutes everyday It's a challenge. I think I'm going to do it from tonight.

Try it.

Give yourself Time,

Sunday Strolls

This morning when I woke up, I thought I still lived in Paris. I was planning my beautiful stroll to the newly built tram that would take me to my Sunday market for a little Sunday supply shopping.

I always have Paris.

On my list:
  • Fresh seasonal berries for breakie
  • Yummy fresh plain yoghurt (full fat only)
  • Succulent roast chicken for a lazy Sunday lunch
  • Fresh greens: basil, raddichio, radishes - salad with everything
  • Carrots! yes carrots with everything, titi Parisienne moi!
  • Oh and fresh, crusty baguette - l'artisanale bah bien sûr
  • Mm and how could I forget those olives in garlic and chilli (yummy snack for all day)
Aah I still pinch myself, that only a few years ago I used to fill in City of Residence: Paris, Ile de France, France. That is all kinds of awesome and I am one lucky little lollipop. It all feels like yesterday and eons ago, all at once. I'm still in love.

Bonne dimanche beauties
