Angel Card – Harmony

The Angel Card for the week is Harmony.  When I think of harmony music automatically comes to mind.  Different instruments and/or voices coming together to create something special.  You don’t have to be musically inclined to know when something sounds off.  The wrong key was played or the voice not in the correct range.  We enjoy music because of the harmony – the coming together and complementing sounds of voices and/or instruments.  It sounds pleasing and often makes us happy. So what about thinking of harmony in our day-to-day lives.   Do we feel happy?  Content?  Frustrated? Or angry?  If […]

Monthly challenge – mason jar

This month our craft challenge was to use a mason jar.  Wanda, over at A Wandafulthing, and I have been challenging ourselves monthly for the past year to be creative!  Over at Yesterday on Tuesday I saw this sweet pineapple mason jar and knew what I wanted to tackle. I used craft paint I had at home which took about 4 coats to cover the glass jar.  For the V I used a Sharpie and it was too easy.  Yesterday on Tuesday used Plutonium spray paint which I think is the way to go.  Check out her site as she has sweet pineapple tags.

5 questions to ask yourself to help becoming you

I have put together five questions to ask ourselves that I think might help us become more authentic. Being us!! 1.   How do I re-energize?   It is the end of a busy week.  Whether you work for yourself or someone else we all get to a point when we have had enough.  At this point you know you have to recharge your batteries. What do you do?  I think it is important that we recognize what we need to do before we burnout.  For some (me) I need to shut down.  So Sunday afternoon I book myself at […]

Angel Card – Healing

My Angel Card this week was healing.  Setting aside the broken bones, unexpected and expected surgeries, chronic illnesses and trauma in general, I want to mull over healing of the soul or spirit.  You can pick the word that resonates with you. How do we heal our spirit?  We don’t need surgery, pills (unless a mental illness and that is a whole other story) or bandages.  I can feel when I am out of sorts or off balance and it has nothing to do with being unwell.  Past hurts have a way of accumulating over time. We think we have […]

What caught my eye – favorites for the past month!


I can’t believe August is over. I have no idea where the summer months have gone.  What caught my eye the past month started on July 29th when I headed over to Ireland for vacation!  Incredible time.  Check out part one of my trip in my post new experiences airbnb and self-guided walking tour.  Picture above is scenery from the walking tour. Continuing on the travel theme check out over at Apartment Therapy how to make your home look well-traveled.  So many neat ideas from tiles, rugs to art.  Love this room with the pops of color and the natural light. Check out […]

Angel Card – Adventure

This week I drew the Angel Card adventure out.   hmmm…….summer is wrapping up and I am hoping you have all had some adventures over the past few months.   Trying something new, going somewhere different, creating and exploring a difference medium.  To have an adventure doesn’t mean you have to risk your life, but it might mean pushing your boundaries.   You can have an adventure right at home by exploring a neighbourhood  you have never been to, checking out those off the beating track shops or just taking a class (photography, pottery) in whatever catches your fancy. Adventures […]

The start of my fall to do list!

bullet J

I love a change of seasons.  Fall has always been more like the start of the year for me than January. It is likely to do with school starting and people getting back up to speed after a lazy summer.  I love school supplies, the paper, books and pens. I guess that is why I finally broke down and decided to start a bullet journal starting in September.  When September rolls around I find I have more energy and focus to start new things – hence the bullet journal to keep me on track.  I have already bought a collection […]

Angel Card – Power

photo (2)

I apologize to those of you who have been following along as I always start these posts with a fast recap.  So sorry but here it is.   For those stopping by for the first time, for the past seven months I have been drawing a weekly Angel Card and writing what that word means to me.  This week it was the word power. When I first drew this card out, my gut reaction was somewhat negative.  Associating power with control and not liking where that was taking me.  On further mulling I realized neither word power or control should […]

New experiences Airbnb and self-guided walking tour

day 2 hike

I wanted to share what I have been up to in August.  I work full-time so have vacation to use.  This year I did two things I have never done before when travelling.  I took a self-guided walking tour through Northern Ireland, the Antrim Causeway Coastal Route.  It was with Footfall Walking Tours so check it out.  I usually do independent trips, just never a walking tour.  I am walking, taking buses, trains and exploring, but not a self-guided hike.  Footfall Walking Tours supplied the maps, directions and booked our accommodations (all lovely in smaller towns).  They also send the luggage to the […]

Angel Card – Gratitude

If you are just tuning in for the past six months I have been pulling out an Angel Card weekly and blogging about what that word means to me.  To pull out gratitude this week was poetic.  I have just returned from an incredible vacation –  loved it and will tell you more about it in another post.  Teaser I know. I love to travel and this is an area I have always been willing to scarify other choices to obtain the money to take off.  Where gratitude comes into play is when you travel you are seeing different cultures, […]
