things I’m loving …

Untitled

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?

{tuesday’s top 5} reasons to love the season

Excuse me for repeating myself, I did this list last year, too. But I can’t help it. Autumn is my favourite season of the year ~ it’s winter without the freezing cold and spring without the allergies. Although I do get a little jealous at this time of year, when the north is heading into spring and all those floral photos and spring-time tweets start appearing in my timeline.

So I have to remember to take advantage of the beauty that autumn has to offer and enjoy it while it lasts, as sometimes the season of mellow fruitfulness can be somewhat fleeting.

Now autumn hasn’t really arrived here yet, this week’s weather not unlike last week’s weather really, despite the calendar saying otherwise. And in some ways, we are still waiting for summer because it has been especially mild in the area this year. But for now, I will think of  more reasons I love the season.

  1. Casseroles and red wine ~ cosy nights mean hearty, comfort food. And it is still warm enough to enjoy a fire outside.
  2. That moment when you spot a cluster of leaves fluttering to the ground
  3. Piles of leaves that make an excellent playground
  4. The warm sunny days and crisp, cool nights, and the fact you can tell the difference.
  5. The fact in the US  it is called Fall
PS. Another reason I love autumn is the light, and the colour. The photography! And I stumbled across this article I thought I would share ~ How to Photography Autumn Colour ~ which has some interesting tips.

What about you? What’s your favourite season? Or you favourite reason to love fall?
