Hello dear ones! I’m so glad we made it through another week, and hope you have beautiful things to look forward to this weekend. 🙂
The last week has been a rough one for me. The horrible pains and illness I experienced from mold in my last apartment returned with a vengeance, and after a week of agony I finally found the culprit: mold in my new apartment too. Arrrgh. I couldn’t believe it, and had awful visions of having to move again. Thankfully this time around it was easily dealt with and removed and I’m feeling heaps better every day. 🙂
I’ve been looking for ways to make everyday life just a bit more beautiful, and this week I:
Made myself a Narnian Tea.
Started reading a good story.
Used fresh herbs from my little garden and made a bouquet of chive blossoms.
Listened to books on cd while I did housework.
Made another Narnian Tea because the first one was so lovely. 🙂
And made Asparagus Pesto Quiche with Goat Cheese.
I also started a list of beautiful things I want to do this weekend, and I’m so excited to tackle it: cleaning up some old outdoor lanterns and putting them on my patio, making a new cd of favorite music, and finding pretty flowers to put in a glass jar.
I’m also excited because I won TWO giveaways in the past week! I hardly ever win anything, so this is fun!! The lovely Mia at Bright Morning Star gave me a $40 gift certificate to CSN, and I was able to get the tongs and microplane I’ve been needing. Yay! She has two more giveaways going on right now, so scoot over for a chance to win! My second one came just this morning from Mischa at Itinerant Tidewad for a selection of Kusmi Tea. It feels like Christmas at my house!! 🙂
What are things that you are doing to make life a bit more beautiful? I’d really love to hear your ideas. 🙂
