this week {words & pictures}

this week - friday 29 january 2016

Hello from a cold Saturday afternoon and how are you? A little late with this week’s ‘this week’, time just ran away with me yesterday…as it does sometimes, right? In fact, the whole week has gone fast, I guess with work, family life and caring for my friend’s cat, it has been pretty busy.

I always seem to feel a little lost in January and February, whether it is lack of light, lack of focus or just simply lack of energy {or all three!} I am usually a happier bunny by the time March rolls around. Not that I am wishing away my life here, Spring just gives hope and renewal and longer days…oh yes LONGER DAYS.

I am trying to drink a little less coffee/tea these days, in a bid to feel a little healthier, substituting them with green teas or peppermint tea, which thankfully I do enjoy. However, I do still have to have a caffeine hit in the morning, but during the day I am doing my best to abstain…it is a work in progress.

The weekend is going to involve recharging my batteries, getting as much fresh air as the weather allows and a meal out this evening with friends. How about yours?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend x

  1. Hi Jane, gorgeous cat! Coffee for me only in the morning, I prefer green tea during the day and at night an herbal tea. I can’t believe it is already end of January. Each day goes faster and you don’t know what is going on. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Ted is a really handsome boy and very sweet, Elizabeth. Which green tea do you drink? I have one with ginger, which is nice. Happy Sunday to you and wishes for a great week ahead!

      1. Hi Jane, pure green tea or jasmine, and herbal tea for the evening, I have lemon with ginger or pomegranate with raspberry. Have a lovely week. 🙂

  2. We have not had much snow around these parts and that always helps a bit with my SDD. I can not wait until warm Spring weather. The older I get the more I dislike cold weather.
    I love your mug. I am such a mug girl. As well as a coffee girl. 3 cups a day for me. In the cold months I emjoy cammomile tea or Sleepy Dreams tea with dinner.
    Beautiful cat. We had one like her growing up.
    I am working all weekend long but that is okay. Tonight I will make homemade mac-n-cheese, my twinkle lights are on and my candle lit. I am reading Out of Sorts by Sarah Bessey and enjoying it very much so I will crack that open after dinner. Perfect evening in my book.
    Have fun tonight with friends! A beautiful day tomorrow too!!

    1. Hi Janet, I know what you mean about the cold, I hate to wish time away, but I am really looking forward to Spring. We had a lovely night out, thanks. I hope you enjoyed your mac ‘n’ cheese and your book, sounds so cosy! I love curling up in the warm this time of year. Happy Sunday to you and wishing you a great week ahead xx

  3. Jane, I know just what you mean about January and February! I struggle through both months, and am always trying to find ways to feel cheered and rested. That’s one reason I love Michelle GD’s 28 moments, it reminds me to stay in the moment. I hope you were able to recharge this weekend! I am tired today and plan on listening to my body. It is a day where I am thankful that I am retired and can rest when needed! xx

    1. Soon there will be lighter nights and I am holding onto that, Grace! Oh yes, 28 Moments, I am so excited to start today!! Happy week my friend and I hope the rest today leaves you feeling refreshed xx
