Friday already? Well first things first, I came across this print on Etsy today.
Etsy. Oh Etsy. I feel instant warmth, relaxation and comfort. Wouldn't you like to crawl in and take a cat nap? It is by ValeriaH entitled Bedroom and is for sale in her shop for $25 -sometime soon I am going to have to pick up this print.
What a great day. Went for a picnic lunch at the beach, 80 degrees, sunny with a cool breeze. I had a pound of organic strawberries I sliced up and dusted with sugar and put in a ziplock bag for an easy treat. Delicious!
I enjoyed just sitting along side the beach and watching the tiny waves. I spent a lot of time thinking of a quote from a writer I frequently read, Eckhart Tolle. His books are a great source of philosophical inspiration for me to ponder. I would like to share a quote I have been thinking of today from his book The Power of Now-
"all the things that truly matter beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace arise from beyond the mind"
And finally, for those of you wondering how I thought the documentary HOME that I watched last night was..... it was visually beautiful. However, for some reason I could not find my place in it, it did not pull me in. I think it is because the photography was beautiful but Glenn Close really didn't explain what I was looking at... I will have to give it another try during the day. Maybe I was just tired last night but I only made it through the first half hour.
That is all for today, working on securing some interesting Etsy artist interviews, must be off ;)
