Some thoughts…..

Our “Mind” is a funny thing!  I always try to think positively in my life, and try to see good in all situations, not always an easy thing to do !!

I have started up biking again to get fit and shed some unwanted excess pounds !! and I have found that I just love that time to loose myself in my thoughts !  I use this time each morning to help set me up for the day ahead, I feel it centers me and allows me to time to “just B”….

As I was biking this morning a wonderful sentence just came to mind  …

“Nice thoughts – Kind Words” 

 and then when I opened up my little book of Zen Gems tonight, this is the quote that met me!

“Mind is the forerunner of (all good) states.

Our life is the creation of our mind.

If one speaks or acts with pure mind,

happiness follows one as his own shadows that never leaves.

(Quote from The DHAMMAPADA)


Shhhhhhrrrrrrr…..don’t wake the family!!!!

It’s 5 past 10 and all is quiet in the house all my darlings are tucked up in bed…

 Peace at last lol!!

Boy its been so hectic around here …. We have been enjoying the beautiful hot days and long summer nights…

Gosh I had forgotten how wonderful summer holidays are… I love the whole not having to set your alarm to get up early… no having to make School lunches… and no running the kids to here there and everywhere…. schools… sport…. etc…

I thought since it was lovely and quiet and I think I have at least an hour of painting in me I might pick up a brush and keep plodding on with my Arrowtown artwork….

I finished off the stones yesterday.. so now have started with the grass and trees… will show you some more photos soon.

Well anyway… night night all have a good sleep talk to you soon.

Cheers D 😉
