Adapting…

Hope everyone is having a great new year (2022). Do you set intentions every new year? If so, I would like to hear what type of intentions others are setting.

A few years back I was encouraged by a friend (who is also a blogger) check her out here to pick a word that will shape your year. The word that resonated this year was EXPLORE.

Although so far in 2022 I feel more like I am adapting then exploring. I am sure adapting will eventually go hand in hand with exploring as the year goes on.

I made some big life changes recently, sold my house, visited my daughter and grandchildren in the USA for a month(two years since last visit) and now back in the town I grew up in. I arrived with only my suitcase lol

I am not an idle person by nature so adapting to a slower pace of life has been the most challenging thing for me.

However, I will use this time to ensure selfcare, like daily walks, chatting with friends and family and scheduling a daily ”to-do” list.

What are some ways you adapt to a new environment and how do you ensure self care?

Thanks for stopping by!

We went back to my home province of Nova Scotia and spent much of the time on Cape Breton Island.

We covered a lot of territory and I can happily say I can check some items off my Summer Bucket List.

I must thank my dear friend Amelia P from You Can Always Start Now for jumping in and doing a guest post last Monday – what would I do without her? Happy to report we did get to have a face to face visit.

The main reason and most important reason for our trip was to be….

DIY: 10 Gallon Crock End Table

IMG_8044What do you do when you need an end table and there is no money in the budget for one?? Well you make one out of something you already have.

I am always so excited when I can repurpose something I already own into something useful that I need……and that happened to be my antique 10 gallon Medalta crock. Continue reading DIY: 10 Gallon Crock End Table
