Now is Now

This week was spring break and I was at home with my girls! I'm so glad that I had a little time off work. This week was just what I needed - a time to recharge, relax and play catch up on a few things.

Here are some of the happy moments from my week:
  • Having breakfast with the girls. I start work very early in the morning so it is only on days off that I have breakfast with my sweeties
  • Watching The Sound of Music with the girls. I love this movie and I love that watching it together has become a spring break tradition
  • Cooking salmon for dinner - certainly not an economical meal, but gosh it was delicious
  • Finishing my Cozy Stripe Blanket! Yes, you heard me right. Wednesday night, around midnight, was super exciting as I darned in the last end and laid out my gorgeous blanket on the living room floor.
  • Drinking many cups of green tea
  • Watching in wonder as the paper toy collection in my house grew even more
  • Sewing colorful bags with the girls 
  • Rock climbing as a family 
  • Baking a lemon poppy seed loaf
  • Sleeping later than 6am 
  • Making progress on my granny square project 
  • Finishing the mending and sewing the Girl Guide badges onto the sash - it felt really good to stroke these tasks from the list
  • A kitchen table strewn with craft supplies left there by two crafty girls
  • A little summer planning 
  • Spending a day with my Mom
  • Feeling at ease, at peace, as I moved through my days
  • Celebrating my grandparents' birthdays
  • Doing some much needed clothes shopping 
  • Noticing a little more green in the garden
  • Staying up late to work on projects
It was a great week and I am really looking forward to the weekend. We have a little trip to IKEA planned for tomorrow, which is always fun and full of inspiration.

(My focus for this year is: Now is Now. Read more about it here)


  1. Congrats on finishing your blanket! We love The Sound of Music here too. It's one of my very favorite musicals. Your granny squares are really coming along! I hope you all have a great weekend. :)

    1. Thank you Jennifer. Finishing my blanket was definitely one of the highlights of my week...
