It’s a very quiet morning at my house and I’m relaxing and enjoying the fact that I don’t need to rush around for anything at all today. There are things that I need to do but my weekends are when I recoup from the work week. By the time Fridays roll around I am so tired that I’m ready to drop.
When I’m not busy celebrating all the family occasions, that I do enjoy to the fullest, my life is a pretty simple one. I think the heart of the simplicity is slowing down to enjoy life more, of savoring life’s simple pleasures
Some of those simple pleasures I like are
Taking a long, relaxing shower.
Sipping a good cup of Coffee.
Reading A good novel.
Eating Popcorn and watching an old movie
Being lazy on a Sunday
Making someone smile
Checking something off my to-do list
We need to live each moment of each day and slowing down a bit does help me to do just that.
MA’S Tip for Today
Something simple like a bouquet of fresh flowers can change the whole look of a room. The provide a pleasing focal point that can improve your attitude and help you to focus on important matters
It’s also easy to decorate your home with beautiful arrangements of silk flowers that brighten up any room and displaying summer blooms in the middle of winter brightens my day for sure. One advantage among many is that artificial flower arrangements, if properly cared for, can last for years and doesn’t need to be replaced every few days, as is the case with natural flowers
You can easily arrange a small bouquet of carnations at the opening of a teapot or a beautiful pitcher
Light pastel colors can go with any arrangement color and they provide the feeling of warmth and coziness.
I do hope your Saturday is a bright and beautiful one! Even though it may be dull and dreary outside, we can be warm and cheery inside.
