things I’m loving …


No introduction … first thing I’m loving is bloggy breaks without stress. Unintended, life gets in the way kind of breaks. It’s been a little full on, and unfortunately it is not my story alone to tell. Except it’s been a full on. You’ll have to trust me on that. But, for the first time, the blog has been the thing to drop off.

Priorities. In my life, in my job,  I’ve have plenty of reminders that life is good and to not sweat the small stuff. We have a saying among my colleagues: “On a scale of 1 to 10 …”. It reminds us that in the grand scheme of things, most issues are really only a one.

Blossoms! There are buds starting to burst all over and the temperature is getting closer and closer to 20 degrees. Spring cannot be far away.

September also means iTunes Festival. This is seriously one of my favourite times of years. Artists streaming free to my lounge  room. It’s a little early for Down Under but iTunes have done some fantastic things for catch-ups and replays. Bookmark it and don’t miss it!

If you’re a desk worker type like me,  then you’ll want to bookmark this post on Yoga Hacks to undo the damage of a desk job. The past few weeks I’ve been doing a weekly, early morning yoga session. And for this former night owl, this has been a big deal. But, wow, how good does it feel. So if you doing nothing else, do this!

Also September photo a day [time to try again?] / this couple’s incredible story / love this photo shelf ~ wondering if I can convince the Mr to make it?

What’s blooming lovely in your world this week?

And another weekend sails past. Where do they go? So as we ease into the new week, a few bits and bobs to kick us off.

Remember, the first five days after the weekend are the hardest [internet meme!]

Nothing says holiday like a palm tree. Even when it's a staycation.

Well, we are on holidays and the weather isn’t all doom and gloom for wintry week so there’s a whole lot of goodness right there!

But there’s a few other things of note in our little world this week.

  • Reading. I grew up an absolutely bookworm but in recent years was no longer a card-carrying member of the always-reading-a-book club. But  this week I renewed my membership and it has been lovely to be swept away by book. I read JK Rowling’s alter-ego Robert Galbraith’s book The Cuckoo’s Calling and just like the Harry Potter series before it, didn’t put it down and finished it within the day. No.2 is now waiting for me on the coffee table.
  • I also discovered how to send books to the Kindle app on my iPad. And indulged in a few trashy romances that you can read over a cup of tea or lunch. [Plus the family got a bit put out sitting around waiting for dinner during my reading marathon: “Just on more chapter.”]
  • It’s a new month [did you get your calendar download?] and being on holidays this week, I thought I might dive in once again to photo-a-day, particularly with the arrival of Chantelle’s new app as well
  • Lots of new music is making me and my iTunes happy, and causing some spontaneous dance move while doing the dishes.
  • And this is making me smile … and wince. I’m sure these guys know what they are doing but I also love the way the video has been put together. And how gorgeous is that scenery.
