still





this weekend has been an unusually calm one for me. unexpectedly, i got the entire weekend off, which is a good thing because i think i may be coming down with one of the many viruses being passed around as of late. apart from some much needed errands and cleaning, i have spent my weekend thus far trying to stay still. not necessarily not moving physically, but more staying still mentally. does that sound odd? i have been downing cups of hot green tea, reading some of my favorite home style books, taking a few photos around the home, lighting candles, and listening to classical music. it has been really nice!

how are you spending your weekend?

I hope you're not. I got it about 2 months ago and was down for the count for 2 weeks.

Oh no! Praying you don't get sick! Or too terribly sick anyway. Please let me know if Wed. doesn't work out for you okay? Your Saturday by the way sounds lovely and peaceful, we, on the other hand have been "winterizing" our yard and all our deck furniture so not a real relaxing weekend but we got alot accomplished! :D Love ya!

Wow, outside of the not feeling so great part, your weekend sounds heavenly! I do hope all of that mental stillness has you back to tip top shape today :) I love your picture of the branch in the vase, I keep my branches out year round and I love them!

I love globe with the spools of thread in it. Very pretty!!!!

Sounds like you did the right things, and hopefully are well. I so get what you mean about staying still mentally. I have trouble calming my mind (read it refered to as a monkey mind somewhere). I have a recommendation for your terrific selection of books..The Find, by Stan Williams. Awesome shelter book with a giving side. And now I'm off to google 'steampunk'...hoping I won't feel A. old or B. embarrased that I have no idea what it is!!

I have found that staying home and relaxing (and taking Zicam, zinc cold remedy) always helps me fight off a virus, or at least, shorten it's lifespan! I hope you are on the mend. I love the photos, the branch in the jar especially, I have branches in vases all over my place right now! :)
Feel better soon!

Hope you're feeling better now! Just kicking back and spoiling yourself is the best medicine...I'm a medical professional, so you can *trust* me...I prescribe a weeks worth of just lazing about drinking bubble tea and reading blogs. Works for me every time!
Hugs,
