I tried crochetting with raffia. It wasn’t a success, but I’ll try again.
Learning how to use an abacus.
Getting exposure to bright light as early as possible. As it’s dark outside am using a light box.
I’ve been using a Happy light as well ! It seems to help with my mood.. on top of my meditation😊
Today I reminded myself to start the day by taking a deep breath and to simply take this day as it comes.
Not today, because they day is over, but by the end of the month, cross-country skiing.
I thought I’d try starting an online Gratitude Journal!
I am stepping up at my church and joining the service team. Tomorrow I start with door greeting and handing out programs. I am also working on joining a kayaking club.
My new activity is close observation, looking and listening. Today I heard a translator assisting non English speakers purchase a cross country ski trail pass. I’m grateful for seeing the delight of “others” playing in the snow for the first time. Winter can be beautiful.
I love novelty and doing new things. This week I jumped on the Wordle train. Anyone else?
I’ve picked up a few new activities in pandemic times: knitting, rug hooking, canning, earth altars, house plant propagation, more vegan/vegetarian cooking (all VERY modestly without much actual talent apparent I hasten to say) And an opportunity to go to Tuscany in 2023 appeared this week! Not today, but this is a prompt to learn a bit of Italian. 😊
I am not sure what will unfold on this beautiful Saturday. I will try to be in the present moment & see. I do know I will begin to take all my Christmas decorations down, it is time. Happy Saturday All.✨🙏❤️
We will see what the day brings. Heading to our farm for the weekend and tending to routine things. Great time to practice gratitude!
I have no plans, but we will see what opportunity pops up.
I’m going over to my sister’s. Their German Shepard mix is still a puppy. A big, strong, energetic puppy. I’m going to train him on some new commands. Let’s see how this goes.
Hmm, do not know. I will keep an eye open for an opportunity:)
I’m trying to teach myself needlepoint.
“Keeping it fresh” is a challenge in the best of times, but seems especially important during the pandemic when days can be dull. My dear friend Liz would pick a new thing about once a year to explore in depth. That’s how I met her – when she wanted to learn knitting.
Tested Positive for Covid yesterday. Feel fine. Lost my taste. But, now I had time to start my Gratitude Journal. Prayed more and am enjoying the peace and quiet of self isolation. I have had very little peace since the start of Covid.
We have a recipe for a type of biscotti that we have never made.
yum! I made almond biscotti a couple of days ago. 🙂
No time like the present. Enjoy!
Baking bread on a cold, winter’s day with gratitude of the warmth of the kitchen and the aroma of my accomplishment.
It’s a cold and very windy day today, which just begs for starting a new book in front of the fireplace with a hot beverage.
Don’t know at this morning moment. It’s minus 35 degrees Celsius outside so going outside will be limited. Perhaps play more my electric guitar on my new amp that I bought yesterday. I play more acoustic..
More time meditating. I’ve dropped the ball recently.
Me too, Carol, thanks for the reminder 😊
Good Morning Butterfly, It’s snowing here. Started about midnight last night and is suppose to continue until noon today. It really does create a sense of stillness for me. I just finished reading some quotes from Eckhart Tolle. I share them below:
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle Pg 41
Jesus said, If someone takes your shirt, let him have your cloak as well. It doesn’t mean you should never lock your door. All it means is that sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.
Life will give you what ever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.
Above all, know that the ego isn’t personal. It isn’t who you are. If you consider the ego to be your personal problem, that’s just more ego.
My YTT program is having a virtual manifestation workshop today that I’ve been thinking about joining. So I just might!
I’ve been drinking more tea and different kinds of tea through the day, so I’ll continue my tea explorations.
Three cheers for tea! We made the switch from teabags to loose tea (black teas only) snd it’s a fun exploring the possibilities, also learning about the social justice, ethical side of tea growing
I don’t know …. I will ponder this throughout my day:)
Finding back to meditation.
I think I’ll experience the future, but won’t know until it gets here. 😊
Ah yes, evoking the spirit of Yogi Berra.
Great idea.. living the present..😊
Today I am learning a new song on the flute. “Via Dolorosa”.
