MY SOUL IS FED BY NEEDLE AND THREAD
....ohh and pencils and paper

Friday, January 6, 2012

Before Christmas I posted about my friend Janeen opening her own Yoga Studio in Beenleigh south of Brisbane and I promised when the new timetable came out I would put up her link which is
http://www.yogaandmore.com.au/ if you don't live close enough to go for a lovely class you can sign up for a wonderful informative newsletter written in Janeen unique style that just makes you feel great.
So go for a visit and sign up so you can read her inspiring 1st newsletter for the year or do what I am doing this week and be kind to your body and take a class.
Now I had completely forgotten that it is the first Favourite Thing Friday for 2012 and Mine today would have to be I am ALONE in my house for the first time in ages. Now company is great but I am not adverse to my own company in fact I quite like myself....I even find myself quite amusing at times and that's not ego but fact. So it has been lovely to have lunch when I wanted to and take to my chair with my gorgeous new sketchpad (thank you VICKI) and sharpened pencil and have a big scribblefest which you will have to wait to see because some of them don't have their ink coats on yet. I had a little wander in the front garden and noticed several of my orchids are in flower and I feel very chilled out and relaxed.

I am off to visit SHAY to see what made her 'favourites list' today why not join me.

  3. I'm completely jealous of your time alone. ☺ Alas, my Quiet Time for today was non-existent. My entire family awoke at the same time as me. I'm thinking of sending them all to Yiayia's house tomorrow so I can play with my new Walking Foot. Enjoy your alone time, you lucky girl. Happy Friday! ☺

  5. I can really appreciate your alone time as a favorite thing. I require a fair amount of it in order to stay sane myself. That is a gorgeous orchid, by the way!

  8. Im with you Michelle ! I love my own company and really cherish the times when I have the house to myself.

    Seems we're both chilling this week (in our own different ways ) Little P has left the building so after three days of constant noise I'm planning some quiet chilling today.

  9. I love some time for myself too.
    I used to do yoga regularly, but I'm now finding Pilates really helpful.
    Love the orchids.
