here and now







here and now
Loving // my new red chairs

Eating // healthier and staying full

Drinking // lots of water and enjoying the occasional sweet tea or coke

Feeling // really good and full of energy

Making // art and crocheting new dish rags

Thinking // that I still can't believe I can take so many steps in a day

Dreaming // of floating in the ocean

I've had a busy week
and i'm tired
but a good tired because I've gotten 
a lot of stuff done
sunday is becoming my favorite day
I take the whole day off
and do nothing
( though I will go to church)
I don't walk, don't cook, don't clean...
just enjoy
watch a movie, or get on Netflix, 
crochet, read, anything mindless and easy
and I feel wonderful on Monday, ready to go. I have worked a little on my painting, crocheted three dish rags, had a fairy party at work, took a drive in the trans am with the tops out, went with 
bobby to feed the fish at the pond, washed my car by myself, cleaned the back porch and all the furniture and planted some flowers in my garden. So I will definitely enjoy this sunday off. 


  1. I love your red chairs too, they really POP against all that lovely greenery.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Wow you've been busy! Taking a proper day off is harder to do than it sounds, isn't it? I'm looking forward to a restful Sunday after the Markets on Saturday.

    Thanks so much for joining in!

    1. I'm afraid that I'm really better at resting than working hard lol. Thanks for starting Here and Now I really enjoy it.

  3. How lovely to take a whole day off and to do whatever pleases your heart. That's such a caring thing to do for yourself. I love your red chairs, that deep colour looks gorgeous! Meg:)

    1. Thank you! I smile every time I look out my window and see those chairs.

  4. A day off for some "you time" sounds like a great way to recharge. Your new red chairs are such a happy pop of colour in the green of the garden - I'm sure they will be calling out for you to come, sit, relax, and enjoy them often. :)
