Relaxing Day

Today has been an incredibly relaxing day. I think I'll actually come out of this weekend feeling recharged instead of wondering where the weekend went. And that's a good thing considering how hectic the next week will be.

I was able to sleep in this morning. Anyone who knows me knows how I love to sleep late! When I got up, Scoob was out on the patio sunning himself and after I made my coffee, I grabbed the house magazines and decided to join him. It has been ages since we both sat out on the patio and enjoyed a leisurely Sunday.

Relaxing and enjoying the sunshine.

Checking out some lichen growing on a board and up the side of a pot.

Playing with aperture and shutter speed.

Same lichen, but it was growing under a trowel.

Usually the neighborhood is too noisy so you can't really relax. Although it was noisy today, we were able to tune some of it out and enjoy the sunshine and the hawks flying overhead and the little birdies that came to splash in the bird bath.

And it's a good thing I went through those magazines again. I hadn't looked at them since I found my inspiration kitchen and now that I have a specific goal in mind, I can see how some of the pictured things can help us achieve that. I'm still at a loss on the bathrooms, though. And we need to decide on materials during this trip.

  1. YAY being flexible and a chance to relax! It's lovely this learning to be flexible thing, isn't it?

    Bathrooms: make sure your sink piece either goes to the floor or has clearance to get your hand under there. We have a lovely looking piece upstairs that does neither and I am still trying to figure out how to clean underneath it. The other thing I like is no lip for the sink. Our downstairs bathroom has the sink in 1 piece with the counter and it's lovely to clean. You could also accomplish this with an undermount sink. I also do not like drank towels and the navy blue lint [I'm just saying] gets EVERYWHERE.
