Today I unpacked some beloved friends – from childhood and from adulthood. Well worn and well loved.
They have been buried in boxes for several months while we navigated a move. I have felt bereft and lonely without them. Today I freed them from the confines of the closet and introduced them to their new surroundings.
Simultaneously I am reading Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up”. So, as she suggests, I spread all my books out in front of me and picked up one at a time. I asked myself her simple question, “Does this book spark joy?”
I kept the ones that ignited a feeling of joy. The others I set aside to give away so that they will bring joy to someone else.
My bookshelves are emptier now yet filled with books that make me smile.
And there are five fewer boxes in the closet! Bonus! 😊
My escherly capri leggings are making their mark! The co-hosts for the #EHyogachallenge2 are wearing them during the month-long event that ends on July 1. The yoga challenge features new poses each day to highlight different Canadian cities and provinces/terriories, along with fascinating historical and cultural tidbits.
One of the co-hosts (@duchess_of_plur) is shown below in the Free Thinker pose for Frederiction, New Brunswick.
To join in, follow @duchess_of_plur and @canadianyogagirl on Instagram for all the details.

Don’t you love it when Nature offers you a perfect moment? I was out in the woods as the morning sun was starting to reach the forest floor. Suddenly I saw something moving out of the corner of my eye.
A ghostly spectre? Or mist rising and dancing in the morning air?
