My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #23

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning here in the Melbourne area. It’s chilly but clear blue sky. A fall morning you can only dream of. Soon we will be heading out to my daughters soccer game. A typical Sunday for us. What is special is the bond the kids have but also the parents. It’s always like catching up with family.

I hope you guys will enjoy the posts I picked this week. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

I think one of the most important things in life is accountability. So I kind of hate that I didn’t live up to it in regards to My Picks Of The Week post. And I’m terribly sorry that this post comes so late this week. Somehow I simply ran out of time yesterday and then I actually forgot to put it up late at night.

In any case, here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most this week. I hope you like them too and please stick around on the blogs and check out more of their posts as it will be worth it. Have a very happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #21

Did you think I forgot My Picks Of The Week post today? Nope, just trying out a new time slot, that’s all.

We have now truly hit fall and the days are just stunning. I have mentioned over and over how much I love fall. It’s the crisp air, the scent of the leaves and soil, the warmth of the sun. I love being outside during this time. I guess I have started being more in the moment again over the last couple of days and somehow it seems as if it has slowed down time. I don’t feel like the week has gone by as fast as all the others. And yet I’m surprised that it’s almost June. Crazy, right? We have soon reached the middle of 2017!

Well, I hope you get to be in the moment over the next couple of days, get to enjoy the weekend and hopefully spending it with loved ones. Here are my picks of this week and I truly hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you had a fantastic week. Mine was pretty good and I started the weekend really well with my watching my first Australian footy game. Only took my 11 years to go see one… A pretty fast and rough game out there and not much protection. A winner and a loser and a lot of people on the outside cheering them on, almost like in real life 😉

In any case, here are my picks of this week. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have a very happy weekend you all 🙂

I was thinking about how fast the last week passed by once again. I know why the days seem to fly passed me over the last months. I know that I don’t live in the day, in the moment at this point. My mind is focused on things that are in the future and I can’t help myself. It’s this constant thinking about that moment in the near future that robs me of living in the moment. It’s that focusing on that one day that makes me speed through the weeks without really noticing what I’m doing and when. It’s the reason why I have to think for a moment when people ask me what I have done on a certain day.

Frankly, it’s an awful feeling and I know it needs to go. Because all I have is in the moment. Nothing is certain just the one thing that is happening right now. “Live in the moment” I tell myself over and over. And I know I’m getting there again 🙂

Hope you enjoy my picks of this week and I wish you all a very happy weekend 🙂

Sitting here typing along and suddenly our cat jumps up on my lap. He never really does it. He is a loner, not a typical cuddle cat. But for some reason he feels like it today and I don’t mind. I know my slight allergy I get from his hair will soon kick in and sneezing and itchy eyes will be my companion for a couple of hours. I don’t mind right now. I love the fact that he is happily sleeping on my knees now, purring and warming my legs. By the way, it’s not my cat in the picture above 😉

I think we both need this right now.

Here are my picks of this week. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I did. Have an amazing weekend, filled with laughter and happy moments you all 🙂

Thanks to the A to Z Challenge you “see” April pass by so much clearer because of the letters you go through. I had the impression we were only just at A and yet X was posted already too. So no surprise that this one here will be the last pick of the week in April.

Back when we were still in Switzerland April meant spring, even almost start of summer. It meant that everything was blooming and the days became longer and warmer. Now down here it’s of course the opposite. The leaves get colorful, the days shorter and it is much colder already.

I hope you enjoyed your April and the last week of it and will be able to spend a fantastic last April weekend with your loved ones. And now let me present you my picks of the week and I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did…

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #16

Can’t believe another week has flown by. By now I’m one year older and maybe even a year wiser and more mature. It was a good and busy week and I’m sure happy for this weekend. I’m sure it will pass by way too fast though. Here are a couple of posts that caught my eye this week and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did. If you ever feel like one of your posts need a special mention, feel free to share in the comments. I’m a bit short in time at the moment so most likely miss out on some great reads and always happy to be pointed in the right direction.

I hope you had a fantastic week and will enjoy a very happy weekend with all the people you love the most 🙂

Happy Easter

Wishing you all a very happy Easter weekend. Enjoy the extra days off and whatever you do. We will be heading out for a hike with friends soon and everyone is looking forward to it.

Have a happy weekend you all and hope you enjoy the following posts as much as I did when reading and if you have time, join my “Easter Party” 🙂
