Q for Quality... and what a quality day this has been...
Thursday, September 2, 2021
P for purpose... Purpose is my one word for 2021. I am committed to thinking about what I do, and checking in on myself that I am purposeful in my life.
So today, a day on purpose.
I spent hours this morning catching up on recordings and tidied my office. It was sad to see this slide in Helen's session, to see all the people who have left CORE... we miss them.
WOW what a space my office is becoming. It is soooo fabulous to be home to have time to actually enjoy my office space.
I also found some absolute treasures... this collection of cereal cards from 25 - 30 years ago is an absolute treasure. I must show these to little guy next time.
And would you believe, another 19 degree day. I was really sore after that mammoth 33km ride yesterday. Getting out of the bed this morning I sure did feel it. The best move I made was doing a FitOn session them session 30 of the Adrienne Yoga Breath challenge.
Midday, I decided to take a break and go for a very gentle cycle. Yes, it was gentle, and indeed it was delightful to stay off the main streets. I meandered in and out of the Mosgiel street, smells the stunning scent of spring blooms and viewing gorgeous gardens. I sure didn't set out intending to bike 22.5km.

O for On-Track...
What a day! My morning started early so I could have a break in the middle of the day, and what a stunner of a day I picked for this.
An early morning Webinar was a great learning opportunity. Check out this amazing read and share widely!
This is such an awesome read, and the 12 points are so worth spending time reflecting on.
I am absolutely loving the hyacinth clumps. Each of these clumps have been gifts to Mum over the years. I would buy her a pot, then bring home and repot, some returned to her garden. They hold such precious memories...
And another delicious dinner. Kale, Pak choi and spinach from our garden. And an apricot and cream cheese stuffed chicken breast... delicious!

No for NEED - need for focussing on wellbeing. Need for connecting, getting active, taking notice, learning and giving.
And how awesome to finish the time in the garden tonight with picking a stunning vase of camelia. They really are an awesome flower. I can't believe our white camelia was literally browned off this morning with the frost, so plan to enjoy many vase fulls of these before they drop... I NEED flowers in vases... they are such a wonderful addition!

M for Monday, marvellous Monday, or is it. I think I enjoyed the weekend so much that I really didn't want it to end. When I checked my calendar last night I just wasn't ready for the online hours that Monday had in store for me. I started the day with FitOn. Yesterday was my first rest day in weeks and I really needed it. This morning I woke up so sore and stiff, that getting downstairs and into my workout took really dedication... and I did it.

L for Learning, learning, learning...
I love it, absolutely love new learning. Today, I think my greatest learning was how much I love water-blasting. I literally spent hours blasting the outside furniture, steps, walls, under and over the deck. I came in absolutely soaked and freezing.

K for Kowhai...
I just love looking out my window and seeing the feeding frenzy taking place on the Kowhai. It seems as if it is being engulfed by the birds earlier this year as it is barely flowering.
Next up on the gardening agenda, was a trim of our native weeping Pussy Willow (Salix caprea 'Pendula'). What started as a little tidy up to remove the dead branches underneath, quickly turned into a literal overhaul.
