Every week Diana at Part Time Monster hosts a Weekend Coffee Share inviting folks to share a peek into their world. Come join the fun here.
I’d tell you summer arrived full force this week. While I’m not entirely sure I’m ready to give up Spring because I love everything about it, including the more comfortable cooler temps, it is fun to feel like it’s time to jump full out into summery action. It’s morning coffee out on the porch, and blowing bubbles out into the world, and listening to the sounds of hammers and conversations and laughter as various neighbors tackle various outdoor repair projects.
I’ve pulled out one of my teapots, a favorite as it somehow reminds me of an elephant, because all of a sudden I’m all about the ice tea. With plans for strawberry lemonade later. Yes, summer has arrived.
The first of the peonies have popped and I’m in heaven. Truly is there any other flower that invites you to feel so intoxicated with lush abundance?
My nose has had lots to smile about this week. I’ve been creating a custom natural perfume – a magical leafy/foresty blend and I have the first of the test samples ready to send off.
A number of friends and I took an online class this week, exploring what next steps our businesses are calling us into, and it was such a delightful and productive and fun experience. I’ve got all kinds of new ideas and inspirations.
This week we began Netflixing an Australian series The Code about a government conspiracy and I’m good and properly hooked. I’ve started reading a number of books, bound a new journal, and have an inspired summer journaling plan. It feels like I’m gathering all kinds of inspiration and now it’s time to have fun with it. I’ve begun what is likely to become a regular feature on my blog – a gathering of links of what’s been filling my world with goodness. I’m imagining it as a veritable trip to the sweet shop of inspiration.
I’ve got a small work project I hope to finish today, so I can really enjoy the rest of the weekend as a long holiday. I’ve got a new Taproot magazine to dive into, some snail mail to get out, and lots of happiness to steep in. I’m hoping you have some of that as well.
So tell me – what’s been up in your world? What are you celebrating; being inspired by; dreaming of? You know I love to hear.
