a minute in June

Happy Monday everyone!
Hope you ALL had an awesome weekend – ours was super busy catching up with friends over dinner, visiting my sweet God-daughter for her 9th birthday and celebrating with our friends yesterday as their boy turned 11.
I also tackled my house chores - nothing new there, it needs to be done!
Andrew and I took turns driving the boys to their soccer games, swimming lessons and Greek dancing class.
Thank goodness I didn’t need to cook but hey! I baked a couple of cakes...and I still managed to relax a little ( just a little)
Life’s been busy...Busy is good!

So here's a little snap shot of June...
Eating / I've been doing  'I quit Sugar'  so I start the day with warm oats for breakfast and I can still have my morning cappucino (yay!).  It does require lots of preparing fresh home cooked meals. Tonight I'm having ministrone soup.
This past weekend, all my healthy meal planning went out the window as there was lots of catching up with friends over yummy food.  Back to normal now.
Reading / I'm reading 'Archangel'  by Maria Menico Sifniades, who is my mum's first cousin ( we are so proud of you Maria!).
I'm also reading 'Afternoons in Ithaka'  a memoir with lovely stories and recipes by
Spiri Tsintziras, an Australian Greek girl living in Melbourne.
Wearing / Lots of warm layers - Its getting chilly peeps!  I've also worn my new gray booties twice now - so painful! Why do we have to break into new shoes and boots?...frustrating that there is no comfort in a pair of new shoes...
Watching / Feeling sad that Game of Thrones, season 4,  came and went SO fast, we are going to have with-drawl symptoms until next year and Monday nights will not be the same!  ha! I am however enjoying 'Fargo' TV series - its so quirky!
There's also a film I'm keen to see -  'Yves Saint Laurent' -  its received mixed reviews but that doesn't put me off!
Wanting / more time in the day. I can never seem to get what I want done!  Ughhh!
Creating / I have a list of things I need to finish - including an online course that ended over a month ago - (see above - need more spare time!) guess that's the problem with 'work at your own pace'...Im slow!
I did manage to find some time to update my Inspiration Art journal.
I actually spotted this article online 'When roller skating ruled the Bay area' ...and thought hey yeah - why is no one roller skating anymore?
I loved my roller skates as a young girl,  with lots and lots of practice I got very good at it -pure freedom!

  1. I'd like a little more time in the day as well! We'll have to figure that out.
    Good luck with the healthy eating. Breakfast is always a good start!

  2. There never seems to be enough time in a day, unless you never want to sleep. I love your little blog. I think rollerblading replaced rollerskates some time ago, but I don't really see anyone rollerblading all that much either, anymore.

  3. Rolling skating certainly brings back some memories! Unfortunately I was never able to use the breaks properly, so it did not always go well ;)
