Sunday Switch Off
Yesterday I decided to take a day for me: Saturday had not been my best day so I decided that Sunday I would be more productive! 🙂
The plan was to have an art and beach day with maybe, a little planning for the week ahead.
Well sometimes plans change and yesterday mine did! I decided to take time to be
So what made my day so special?
I have made a short video of my day and below is the list of how I made this a special day where I did recharge my batteries.
♡ It was a cool morning so I started with cuddles in the warm bed with Des followed by
♡Angel Card for the day from Daily Guidance from Your Angels: See only Love
♡ Then it was time for the local Farmers Markets where we get fresh fruit and veggies each week. Always such a joy to chat with the local farmers.
♡ The special Sunday breakfast, something we usually do as a treat. Yesterday we had mushrooms, baby tomatoes, basil, avocado on fresh seeded sourdough with watercress.
♡ Then it was time to spray my Kale and baby broccoli with Dipel a natural spray to deter the army worms that have stripped the plants bare. I then noticed some dead geraniums on the fence and decided to pull these out- not my smartest move as the back decided that was a bit much! I am so looking forward to the day where I don’t have to be careful about what I lift etc. Just another 15 months…….
♡ Time we to set off to Fingal Beach, we often head south on Sunday morning to this beautiful beach that has no houses facing the beach and no high rises. We were going to call in at a gallery I had seen advertised in the local paper Studio 44. This was an amazing visit. I had expected just to call in, look at the exhibition and head to the beach. We were greeted by Honey a barking poodle and Kit the owner. The gallery was amazingly welcoming as was Kit and we were given the full tour and then sat outside in the sun and shared tea and coffee. The conversation just flowed and I felt I have made a new friend and maybe a gallery to exhibit in.
To top it off on the way back from the beach I decided to stop to take a photo of the gallery and was introduced to Mindi who had curated the exhibition. She has just found a space for exhibition in Coolangatta. The angels were with me.
♡ While we were having tea the amazing yellow and purple vehicle pulled up, I had never seen anything like it. The day was unfolding magically
♡ Then we headed down to the beach which was just magical, warm clear blue sea and sky and water so warm. After walking and swimming I sat with Des on our comfy beach chairs, did a short meditation, wrote in my journal and read. I got a great Vitamin D hit too. I love this time of the year as the sun is wonderful without being burning.
♡ We returned and had a yummy salad and I then read the next chapter in E Squared by Pam Grout a book I am reviewing for Pam.
♡ Then I treated myself to a glacial marine mud mask followed by a coconut oil, himalayan salt and lavender oil bath- pure bliss.
♡ Time now for dinner: spinach, celery and watercress soup, fresh corn and a grapefruit before snuggling up and watching A Place To Call Home. A new Australian drama which I love.
What a beautiful day and I went to bed totally relaxed, full of love and feeling very abundant and so grateful. So much to share in my gratitude journal.
When I got up this morning I was greeted by the most magical sky I felt so happy and full of love as I start the new week.
As I write this I look at my To Do list for today and even though I wonder how I will complete what I wrote down, I feel at peace. I am going to take more days just to be. I feel good.
♡ What do you do when you take a day just to be? How does it make you feel♡
