It is almost painful to type these words: The last weekend of July is upon us…and while I have no desire to return to the ungodly temps we had last weekend, I would like to put July on pause and slow down these days that are just racing by!
I did not make a “Summer Bucket List” this year, but with July almost over I have been thinking about what things I’d like to do before September is here. One thing I have wanted to do for some time is visit the Woodville Plantation which is around the corner from me. Sunday I will be able to check that off as I am going with a girlfriend!
I have struggled with finding gratitude in recent days and I realize that finding even one thing to be grateful for is crucial to my wellbeing. This morning’s Tiny Bit of Quiet is an excellent reminder to pay less attention to the “what” and more attention to the “how”… Today I will pay more attention to all the how’s of my day – and I am so excited to have this reminder that sometimes you need to change your focus, to look beyond.
By so many things! But this crossed my radar today and I love that steps can be art!
I laughed at a tied vote between Daelyn and The Weekend yesterday. I bound off my Early Bloomer yesterday… she is having a bit of a spa treatment currently and I hope to be wearing her soon! And, I am hoping that plums will be available at the farmer’s market tomorrow – they are one of the best tastes of summer!
That is all I have for this week! Have a great weekend and I will see you back here on Monday!
Love those steps!
I can’t wait to find out which of the patterns you’ll choose. And plums… now I want some (they do have them here sometimes).
I love the thought of being intentional by focusing on the how, not the what. I’ve been having a hard time being mindful when cleaning toilets 😉
I love those steps! One of the reasons I love visiting Fort Collins is that there is so much public art. There are almost 100 painted electric boxes, and I marvel at them every time I see them. I can’t wait to see Early Bloomer!
Those steps are great (and they are in your city!! you need to search them out and take your own pictures…please…). Can’t wait to see Early Bloomer and hear all about Woodvillle which looks really nice. Enjoy the weekend Kat!
Those steps are awesome!!!
No summer bucket list for me either but, like you, I find myself thinking of a few things I might like to do before September arrives 🙂
Oooh! I hope you’ll share photos of the steps as you discover them. I’m reminded of the Selaron Steps in Rio de Janeiro (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escadaria_Selar%C3%B3n). It’s incredible, and so much more than “steps.”
Summer has gone way too fast…
I LOVE those steps, and finding art in unusual places always makes me smile!
I hadn’t heard about those steps, but I love that idea! And we have so many stairs in this city, too!
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you find some good plums!
I am trying to find more gratitude in my days and find while I am in the car by myself it is the best time for me to just starting thinking of all I am grateful for. Take care.
Those steps are really cool! Have a great time at the plantation, tomorrow!
I’m proud to say I’m from Pittsburgh, such a cool city! I’ve been journaling and creating and that helps squelch the loudness from the ‘outside’.
I love those steps. I have a cousin who lives in Pittsburgh and I’ve always wanted to visit her and the city. Thanks for the reminder about the Tiny Bit of Quiet. I need to remember those prompts when I pick up my journal. Since I finished the Mindfulness Journal, I’ve been looking for some new resources for writing/journaling prompts. I hope you had a nice weekend.
