I’m linking up with Lecy today https://asimplergrace.blogspot.com/
If we met for coffee I’d suggest a restaurant nearby which has a lovely section outside which sits in the shade – great with the warm weather we’ve been having.
I’d order a red cappuchino and ask how you are and what you’ve been up to.
As our drinks arrive I’d tell you that I’m on a decluttering streak. I organised our wardrobe for summer recently and went through old clothes we haven’t worn in ages. It felt so good to donate 3 bags of clothes that were just sitting there and not being enjoyed.
We’d order some cake and I’d choose the lemon meringue. I’d tell you that something I’ve needed to work on has become easier with time. I find balance is something that isn’t always easy to achieve. For instance if I skip gym I usually eat something unhealthy. Then I’ll probably miss gym the next day and finish the cheese in the fridge before supper.
Point is, balance is one of those things that sometimes elude me. Shopping is another thing. I go for one item, somehow end up buying three. Or nothing – weird how all-or-nothing thinking works?
But a few days ago, I felt like I’d started making headway. We have been putting off the garden for a while and our driveway had so many weeds that kept sprouting up through the bricks. So we tackled this and part of the back garden over the weekend. But we left one section of the back garden for an evening after work when we could plant some water-wise plants. Usually I’d want to push through in the heat and finish the job we started but not this time. I wanted us to enjoy the rest of our Sunday afternoon and take our time choosing new plants instead of rushing it.
And last week I did skip gym a couple evenings after work and still managed to eat a healthy dinner each time. Balance can be achieved, it just takes practice.
We’d enjoy our cake and talk about how quickly this year is flying. You’d tell me about the place you are choosing for our November coffee chat before we say goodbye until next month.
