bonjour tout le monde! i hope day is winding down to a warm dusk evening for you. i’ve been trying to manage my time better and got this message in an email this morning. it’s from a great site that my client in nice told me about. so subscribed to their daily thought and this was today’s. just wanted to share it in case you struggle with this too!
Your time is a perceptual thing, and even though the clock is ticking the same for everyone, your alignment affects your perception, as well as the results that you allow.
As you observe the enormous differences in the effort that people apply and the results they achieve, you have to conclude that there is more to the equation of achieving than action alone.
hhmpf. so when i got a comment last night from the lovely m-t, i had to put the excel stuff down tonight and make way for that creative time (ie blog time)! m-t bestowed me with a blogging honor, the sunshine award! there is a catch, with rules to follow and answering a few questions you may or may not care to know about me. so thank you and before the whole thing in ends up in my jungle of an inbox, i’m taking the present moment to sit back and blog blissfully. so here goes:
Each recipient must do three things:
First, thank the person who sent it to you.
thank you so much M-T! it’s been a long time since i’ve stopped by and there was so much delicious information in your posts, on your sidebar, your tips, pics and inspiration that i will get back to when this finished. you gave me more homework but it’s for a good cause, spreading great blog buds and visiting old friends. for those of you who don’t know m-t, she’s a brilliant consultant who helps define and refine one’s style. check out her fabulous blog, the french touch.
Second, you must recognize 10 other Bloggers for the Award and link back to their sites.
i love you all so instead of choosing faves i’m linking to those who most recently left a comment. it’s a good chance for me say hi so it’s already a win!
bonus! i picked up this great new blog from one of the links at mt’s site:
i hope you head over to these amazing blogs and enjoy them as much as i do. bon blogging!
Third, you must answer the following questions about yourself. oy, if you really want to know. i’ll make it brief:
Favorite color? all shades of bluegreen
Favorite animal? baby animals!
Favorite number? my birthday’s the 7th
Favorite drink? good h20
Your passion? archeology, the boudoir and saving the world!
Giving or receiving presents? please…!
Facebook or Twitter? they both bore the h%# out of me but i’m sure i could be using them better
Favorite day? any holiday with my family
Favorite flower? gardenia
well, that’s a wrap! dusk has come and gone and i’m gonna squeeze one more hour out of this day to absolutely nothing. bonne nuit cheres amis!
hi guys, happy 236th birthday to our beloved land! hope your day is off to a great start. i know we all love to travel but living in a free county that governs itself ‘by the people and for the people’, well that just can’t be beat. thanks to all who have fought to protect our freedom. cheers to all who believe this is a free country and bravo to those who go and get the life they what they want from it.
hope you get to grill, nap or play your way today!
for those who lost so much last week, we’re thinking of you. colorado.gov

hi guys, how’s your week going? it hasn’t slowed down for a minute around here but i’ve had a nagging feeling in the back of mind to stop by and just say hi. i’m kind of a one man show and am working on putting a real team together. but todays’s not the day that it’s gonna happen so i have to say a quick hi and bye. my mantra for the day is, ‘do one thing at a time, well.’ hope you accomplish everything on your list today and that we all have some free time over the weekend to surf and play, till then, have a great day!
good morning guys! i have about 30 seconds between googling princessess and making sticker books with my friend’s daughters. we’re about to have brunch and go house hunting so i just wanted slip in between a shower and getting them dressed. i can’t imagine how moms get anything done but i see they have one thing in common: they’re superheros who make magic and miracles and hope to take a gazillionth of one percent of the pressure off. well it’s my turn to push the baby swing, have a great sunday!
buona sera everyone, i hope your week is off to a great start and if you’re off this week, that you’re having a jolly good time!
i’ve had a little down time and have been trying to cram as much fun and rest into the days as work. but somehow they just seem to fly by no matter what they’re filled with!
i took tonight’s last hour to go through your comments from the weekend. thank you so much for the birthday wishes. the links in this posts are from friends who stopped by and left their url breadcrumbs :)
some are old and others are new. as always each and every one had something beautiful and special on their blog.
so now i’m kicking back with my dvr ready to watch the old film ‘history is made at night’. tomorrow is another day so i’ll leave that till morning,
in the meantime, have yourself a great nuit and if you get a chance to stop by these blogs and say hi i’m sure they’ll be happy to hear from you.
so without further ado, i wish you a peaceful night full of sweet dreams and astral travels. see you out there!
hi everybody! i hope the sun is shining this morning wherever you are! thanks for all your comments and love yesterday. i am as always, amazed by who you are and what you do so this morning i spent a little time stopping by to visit some of the creatives behind the messages.
with all that’s out there to inspire, i get the most when i stop by chez vous! and it’s a bit of meditation too. a good way to recalibrate and get out of my own head. you may know some of these friends, others are new. hope you enjoy them as much as i did this morning!
hi guys, how’s was your weekend? for me it seemed to fly by fast but i had a little time to myself tonite and of all the things to do in the world, couldn’t wait to spend it with my blog buds! going thru the recent posts and comments again has left me feeling inspired and regenerated. so this is the second installment of a smattering of the talents who just said hello. i’m just compelled share the bounty. hope you enjoy and meet some new friends. have a great rest of a nice long night!
it’s already getting late but i wanted to post what i’ve been thinking about all day. it’s getting to visit new and old blog friends who have left recent comments. thanks guys for helping me when i was having a formatting crisis, asking about my dad (he’s totally fine)! and just shouting back when i said hi.
i got a chance to visit some of your blogs today and feel so much better for it!
i’ll add everyone to the blogroll.
if anyone ever wants to exchange blog links let me know.
in the meantime, meet some new friends with me!
ok back to work! have a great night!
hi guys, how’s everything? it’s been a couple busy days at mom and dad’s and the good news is that he’s coming home on thursday!
i can hardly keep up with mom who’s been doing everything from making pasta to taking doors down. she puts me to shame in the energy department. it’s all i can do to blog but did want to stop by and share some pretty pics from pinterest. the talent of these everyday photogs never ceases to amaze me.
i’m into super simple stuff right now, probably cause i’m on overload. these shots just reminded me that it doesn’t take much to make a big impact.
it’s almost midnight and we have to get up early to do a little training for when dad gets back. truth is he’ll do whatever the heck he wants but at least we’ll have some tricks up our sleeves for keeping him steady and stuff. believe it or not this sailor, archer and motorcyclist will be using a walker for awhile.
i hope your days are stress free and you’re enjoying some simple pleasures
i still haven’t done a thing and actually have been a bit stressed but am gonna take it down a notch.
worst case scenario i cut up a paper bag and trim gifts with greens from the holly bush
cause we all know what really matters…
well, i’m off to search for the greatest, sweetest simple pleasure…deep sleep! bonne nuit! xc
one of the best things about the holidays is visiting friends, even if it’s virtual! this is a collection of the most recent friends who came by and i just wanted to pass along some of their gorgeous blogs and inspiration. hope you get a chance to sit back and enjoy them as much as i do. there’s a lot to love in their blogs so i’ll wait till tomorrow to post some more. till then, have a great nuit!
