Friday Morning Cleaning at the Studio

This morning, the floors needed to be cleaned. I decided to get the floors finished before I get ready for work. Today I’ll be working from home. I love Friday’s for that reason.

There’s some areas of my house that needs dusting. I’ll try to do that in-between my sessions.

The candles in my family room and bathroom are turned on(I use hot plate warmer and plug in candle wax- I have cats!) Hoping the fragrance from the candles will energize my home and make it feel refreshing.

Photos of Fresh Snow

We had fresh snow last night. Maybe 2 inches of snow. It’s much warmer than it was the last three days. But there’s more cold and snow in the forecast next week.

On my walk early this morning, these photos were taken.

Preparing for Smoothies

On my counter there’s bananas that are becoming brown. I don’t care for them at that point, so I cut them up and put them in the freezer for future smoothies. Also can be used for banana bread. Great way to save money and be intentional about your diet.

This evening I’ll be knitting and resting. I work on Saturday, all day!

Happy Day

Quiet Day

It’s a quiet cold morning while the snow blankets every reminder of grass and spring time.

The birds are quite, the people in the city are quiet and my home is quite.

Smoothie

Spinach, blueberries, banana, protein powder, almond milk. Blend together

My breakfast was the spinach smoothie, warmed up gluten free biscuit with dairy free chive cream cheese from Kite Hill, and a mandarin orange.

This is a wonderful book. It is for those yoga fans out there. A must read.

Happy Day
