The Art of Relaxation


I’ll tell you the truth. I’m not a fan of writhing blog posts but I love posting and editing pictures. I used Photoshop Elements (and I’m still learning) to create this collage of photos. Not overwhelming you with the hundreds of photos I took during this holidays. I’m still debating very hard wether to get the new iPhone 7+ or to invest in a fancy smancy camera. Would love to take more photos to add to my blog and to my children’s private blog page. Any suggestions are welcome. There are so many photo filtering Apps that works well with the iPhone but now with Photoshop Elements I’m practicing fine-tuning some photos myself on my computer.

What have I appreciated most about this holiday… Is quality time with the family. We stayed at the beautiful Seclusions by the Bay. (<— Check out the link). I enjoyed the simple things like making breakfast together as a family, letting Garth tend the manly barbecue for the meats in the evening. Even washing the dishes while listening to spottify (‘your favourite coffeehouse’ playlist) not worrying about planning for the next day. Because the next day will be there and we are still on holiday and therefore no concrete commitments to plan for. Think that was the best feeling ever!

Weekend Notables

Hope everyone is having a relaxing/lazy Sunday. I’m excited to say that I’m now a proud owner of a brand-spanking new Kindle Touch which came in the mail yesterday. I’ve always know how enriching reading can be as compared to watching crap TV like the Kardashians (not worth linking~sorry) but all of last year I’m sad to day that I probably made it through only one book! I made a promise to myself that this year I will make up for all that I fell short of in 2011.

If like me, you feel like all you’re doing is trying to juggle all these balls of responsibilities and trying to make them work but feel like you’re hitting dead-ends, then this book is work reading ~ 7 Habbits of Highly Effective People. It’s a real eye opener into looking at life/work’s perspective and taking steps to see actual results.

The other book I’ve just downloaded onto my Kindle is “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch

Other Notable for this weekend is this song I can’t get out of my head.. by Mike Stocksdale. Happy Listening! Sx
