So far . . .
I put away the 8 different sunscreens on the bathroom sink, left one out for convenience, and found a spot for a garden lilly.
The Lego Friends’ Village has been relocated! A handful of legless and armless Disney figures have also found a place to hang out other than my living room floor.
My daughter and I had lunch and “tea time” on the front porch both days. We used my Emma Bridgewater tinware and made a regular lunch a little more fancy.
My husband has been having breakfast in our sunroom the past few days, enjoying the views of vegetable garden, flowers and trees. It’s a great feeling to use all of the rooms in your house and not be paying for more space than you need.
Sometimes when I slow down a little, it helps me feel more energetic and creative. I sent a few emails out and a neighborhood “Ghost in the Graveyard” (tag) game will be underway tonight. Look out XBOX, here comes an ‘old school’ game.
Most of our dinner tonight will be free. I had to switch up my meal plan after receiving free items from a friend going out of town. We are having frittata with kale, green onions, and potato; sourdough bread, and citrus fruit and apple salad.
Living simply is not about living in poverty or self-inflicted deprivation. It’s about living an examined life where one has determined what is truly important and enough … and then just let go of all the rest. – Duane Elgin
