Mindful Mondays

{ Mindful Mondays }

A series on Mondays (as often as possible) that calls all things I am doing, thinking, and creating.

:: reading- The Storied Life of AJ Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. I am about halfway through and I really love this book. It is nicely written and as of yet nothing too tragic has happened to the characters. A little sadness but nothing that makes me want to sob. I like reading a book that makes me feel happy.  

:: listening to - the quiet murmurs of my little gal playing with her dolls and setting up a tea party for us. I am also listening to back episodes of A Prairie Home Companion. My husband and I love this show and we are hoping to go see a live show this spring. *fingers crossed*

:: studying- a few herbal cookbooks still and found about 6 different tea brews I want to try over the next few months. 

:: creating- a door wreath and putting the finishing touches on my quilt. Both are taking longer than expected but then again I am a perfectionist with three children under the age of 6. So go figure, my time is limited. Also, creating lessons for next week's home school and beginning to think about next year and what it will be like.

:: cooking- black bean ragout served over thick toast with avocados and fried eggs. It sounds a bit weird but trust me it is amazing and meat free! 

:: educating - myself on the options of home schooling on oldest next year. I requested some information booklets and now I am really thinking about how this will all work. I think I can, I think I can...

:: feeling- a bit tired from a busy weekend of house hunting, ballet classes, grocery shopping, staying up way too late, and traveling to visit with family. Tired but a good tired. I think today will require a little healthy food boost to get me going. 

:: thinking - about my grandmother who continues to recover from illness. A wonderful conversation I had with several friends over Facebook about college tuition, higher education, and the future for our children. It was inspiring and uplifting. 

Link up and Join me if you feel so inclined...all are welcome. 

Peace, Light, and Blessings on this Monday!
