The weather warming up and not having to wear a coat this week!
Everything in the garden growing well & roses beginning to bloom.
Mowing and the lovely sweet smell of a just cut grass.
Swapping some containers from the back garden to the front for better color contrast.
Running along the beach & appreciating the view out to sea most days.
Enjoying fresh sea air & raucous sea gulls wheeling across the sky.
Wide, open horizons. Space!
Feeling fit and agile. Tai Chi & Qigong on the beach and in the studio.
Feeling connected, shifting blocks, directing flow,
Shaking off tension & muscle tightness easily & softening up.
Invites from well connected friends & helpful people.
Opportunities to progress in specific areas and conference.
B's brilliant Feng Shui cures working in days! Woohoo! :)x
Extra, unexpected income this week filling up the coffers again & paying for:
A lovely meal, out last night, with B's sisters & tribe!
Losing then finding some important keys in an obvious place which appeared to be lost!
Not seeing the wood for the trees! Again! Ha! Ha!
Expanding horizons and perception.
Two great visits to customers this week gaining greater insight. Perceptions.
Working on algorithmic, predetermined response patterns
And remote control of low resolution reflectors. Perception!
I appreciate great customers and efficient, competent colleagues.
I especially appreciate Miss B and everything she does & doesn't do!
Especially banana pancakes & steaming hot cups of tea! :)xxx
And Miss C whose new thing is mumbling at the birds on Zen TV ...
'Nyummm, nyummm, nyummm,' and tapping the screen! :)xxx
Feeling 'tuned in, tapped in, turned on' AH!
Thank you Universe inside and out! :)x
