Life Lately


Although the past few months were not totally kind to me, I have been pulling myself together lately.

Here are some things that I got up to recently:

A makeover... I got a completely different hairstyle. It makes such a difference, and helps to make me feel good about myself. I also went clothes shopping. I spend most of my days at home, so I made sure to get some cute pieces to make being home a special occasion too.

Decorating and homeware shopping... I got some new bits and pieces for my home. I bought pretty pastel tableware, fancy curtains and rods, new sheets and cute bits and pieces. Lately, I have been waking up with a smile, and feeling good about my home.

Spending time outside... At times, being outside is like therapy for me. So I have been making sure to get a dose of the beautiful outdoors almost everyday.

Evenings with Charlotte... Spending time with Charlotte is a priority in my evening routine. We like to sit outside, while she chases critters and bark at neighbouring cats. I think she wants to make friends with the cats, but has the wrong approach! I give her my undivided attention, cheer her on, and sometimes give her treat:) I think she looks forward to it. I do :)

Baking... I went shopping for baking goodies, and got back into my baking groove. And my family was glad for that.

Slowing down... I get very edgy when life seems to be moving too fast for too long. So I have been making sure to be present as much as possible. I find that I do less but way more, and have time to notice the birds that visit, and the cat on my neighbour's house top that is hiding from Charlotte!


How have you been doing? What have you been up to?

Love,
Summer

  1. It sounds as though you are doing all the right things to get out of a funk and to recover from all the challenging things in your life lately. (The banana bread in the other post looked good!). Baking is therapeutic, isn't it? And so is outside. Keep on keeping on.

  3. It's very important for those of us that spend so much time at home to love our surroundings. You can do so much with budget items that make you smile when you walk past them. Outdoors of course is very important to me too. I'm glad you're finding pleasure in your surroundings!

  4. I think we Librans have been going through a tough cycle for some time now. I am so sorry you have been too! I love that you bought things for your home and that you are enjoying being outside, because you live in Paradise! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody
