Keep it SIMPLE, Sweetheart!
(I changed it from “Stupid” because I’m not.)
I learned this morning over at As Time Goes…Buy that tomorrow, August 1, begins Simplify Your Life Week.
This week involves getting ready for guests, having a full house, hosting a party, prepping for a road trip, and wedding decisions before being gone for weeks. My list to accomplish in the kitchen today includes whole wheat apple muffins, baked cinnamon granola, and fresh squeezed honey-ginger lemonade. There’s mayhem in all areas of our yard, adding to the frenzied feeling I have. Simplify? This should be interesting.
After some thought, I decided that it’s all about perspective. Doing one thing at a time. Baby steps. Enjoying the process, not just focusing on the final product. I mean, we LOVE having guests in our house. It’s BUILT for hosting get-togethers. I get to try a new recipe for muffins, and have a date with a cup of coffee AND my juicer! Wedding planning is planning my WEDDING to John- what’s more wonderful than that? And all of the mayhem in the yard is going to result in something beautiful. Ahhhh. I can do simple, can’t I?
Trying a new wine and loving it (shocker!).
Pre-made swordfish skewers- easiest gourmet dinner ever.
Evidence of a happy dog.
Forced downtime for juicing!
Sometimes I need to stop and regroup. This seems like the perfect week to do it.
What do YOU do to “simplify”?
