Scones to live by

The best scones I have ever eaten, in my ENTIRE life, were consumed yesterday on Gabriola Island, at the sweet little outdoor market. Consider this: pumpkin spice with chunks of white chocolate all mixed into a scone, and eaten while the scone was still warm, thus the pieces of white chocolate were still all gooey and melted. This is most certainly my new favourite thing. Thank you Slow Rise Organic Bakery.

I'm minimizing bit by bit, here and there, moment to moment. The acts are small and sporadic, but with big rewards. Cleaner, less clutter. The stuff I love, and love to use, spilling out and not shadowed by the stuff I don't love and seem to use less.

Cozy Sweatshirts

With the slowing of summer, the cooler breezes flowing in, the Fall beginning it's changing of colours, I love feeling the need to slow down, to wrap up in my coziest sweatshirt, and drink a mug of tea. I feel embraced by the changing seasons and savour the resulting changes within me.

Feeling inspired lately. It's like I missed the spring cleanup feeling and am doing it in the fall. I feel like I want to get all those to-do lists sorted and worked on. House stuff, baby stuff, career stuff, blog stuff, and even things as simple as the laundry. It's all inspiring. Maybe it's the amazing sunny weather keeping my energy up, or maybe it could be all the fun physical activities we've been partaking in. Whatever it is, I'll take it. And I'll use it to get stuff done.

With or Against the Grain

You know sometimes when whatever it is you're doing just feels right? And other times, it's like pulling teeth?

For some reason, last night, I felt like I was going against the grain of things and everything I tried to do to get ready to go camping seemed super difficult. I was aware of this for a little while, and then decided it would be better to just go to bed and sort things out in the morning.

This morning, things are flowing much easier.
