Wishcasting Wednesday!

The last couple of days have been wonderful, I have had some delightful experiences at my local library. I attended a workshop on Chocolate, where I learnt so much about the history of chocolate, and about chocolate itself. I discovered that there is a very big difference between good quality chocolate and confectionary chocolate. I am now only indulge in small pieces of good quality fair trade chocolate, which is good for my health and divine in taste. Whilst I also attended a magic show, which was full of marvellous magic, funny and so entertaining. My youngest son just loved it. He was smiling, laughing and clapping. I think my prosperity already shows up in my life with providing me with some wonderful joyous experiences.

I am late, I am late, I am so late in answering this weeks Wishcasting Question, and I still have so much more to do today! However it has been a totally enjoyable day! I spent it catching up with a friend, it was so good to have so much time to relax, sit and talk. Tonight I still have dinner to cook and a Toastmasters meeting to attend.  So busy, busy!

It is Wishcasting Wednesday , which is held by Jamie Ridler at her website Jamie Ridler Studios at  http://jamieridlerstudios.ca

This weeks question is as follows: What do you wish to immerse yourself in?

Firstly I like to immerse myself in being Mum, even as my boys grow older they still need my love and support so much. They also need the practical stuff, like someone to be there for them, to make them feel safe, to feed and cloth them, to help them with their homework, to answer their questions about the world, and off course to try to kiss them good night. I love being Mum.

I would like to immerse myself in cooking more interesting and different dishes. To really enjoy cooking and the foods I cook. To make it an experience not just something I whip up and dish up to simply fill our tummies. I have never been much of a cook I would really like to change that.

When it stop raining, I hope to immerse myself in lots of long adventure walks, especially with my doggy companion Little Miss Popularity. We hope to discover new walking tracts, new parks, and admire many more gardens.

I wish to immerse myself in creating interesting and entertaining speeches. I have been working on a speech now for two months. I change the subject about three times. I just can not seem to stick at it and find other things to do.

Mostly I wish to immerse myself in figuring out how I really want to live my life, and to bringing

more joy and purpose into it. So I will immerse myself in doing my morning pages(Journalling) each morning. Through my virtue meditation and guided meditations. Through my long adventure walks. Finally through be willing to being open to what ever is happening in my life. Today a lady told me that she just couldn’t keep on top of everything that was happening in her life. I thought that is true, we can get so immersed in all the drama. So I wish to be immersed in focussing on the now and letting go of all the drama’s. This last wish will be the hardest, but with baby steps I will get there one of these days.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Have a great day

This weeks question is as follows:  What nourishment do you wish for?

I went for a wander through the McCelland Gallery and Sculpture Garden, I noticed this sculpture which was playing music out of it, it was just so delightful to walk through the gardens with this music weaving its way through the gardens. It was like musical chiming. I found this experience quiet nourishing for my soul.

I wish to be nourished by taking care of myself, eating delightful nourishing foods, sleeping soundly in my comfy bed, going for more adventure walks, drinking more water, doing guided meditations, having fun with family, and journalling.

I also wish to be nourished for by flowers in the garden, home-grown vegetables, the wind, the sun and just spending some time outdoors.

I wish to be intellectually nourished for by new learning experiences and new conversations with people.

I wish to be intellectually nourished by reading books and great books just coming my way.

I wish to nourish my inner child by taking time out and having fun.

I wish to be nourished by lots of laughter and joy in my life.

I wish to be nourished with  colours, fragrance and music, I wish for more of all these in my house.

I wish to take time out for myself and really smell the roses, and just notice how really good my life is.

This weeks question is as follows:  What dream do you wish to come true?

I dream that one day that I can work from home, I would love to work in the area of health promotion, maybe something like wellness coaching or health assessments and health care plans. I would love to work between 9am-3pm on school days and have school holidays off.  I currently work set shifts as a nurse in a hospital, I also work a lot of weekends. I always feel like I am missing out on things on the weekends, whilst I often find myself having to find someone to look after the boys. So it is my dream to work perfect hours in an interesting job that I love doing.  For now I will just be grateful that I have an interesting job, regular hours and regular pay.

 

Whilst on the NaBloPoMo todays question is

What is your favourite hot, spicy food?
I am not a big fan of spicy food however I do like some spice. I really like the spices in Thai cooking, I love using them in stir fry’s especially with coriander. Whilst I think the coconut milk just cools the flavours done a little. I really love going out to Thai restaurants and eating and my favourite dish is the red duck, it is sweet and yummy, spicy yet not too spicy.

Jamie Ridler is back with her Wishcasting Wednesday, which is held at her website Jamie Ridler Studios at http://jamieridlerstudios.ca

This weeks question is:  What do you wish to wake up too?
This morning, my husband brought me in a cup of coffee to wake me up to the morning. He always brings me in cup of coffee first thing in the morning such a treat. Then once i woke up I did my ten minutes of morning meditation and then listen to a podcast. After that I jumped out of bed and into action, it was time to get the boys ready for school. Then the peace becomes rush, rush, rush!
When I wake up I wish to continue my coffee and meditation. I  wish also to be more disciplined and get up early so I can have some time to sit at the breakfast table and have breakfast with the boys. I also wish to play some relaxing music and allow myself to gently start my day, then hopefully my day would just gently unfold. I wish to wake up feeling healthy and full of energy.  I also wish to wake up to a day full of happy surprises, which includes being able to enjoy the simple pleasures in my life
The simple pleasure of a flower.

 May all your beautiful wishes become true.
Wishing you a wonderful day!

Jamie Ridler is back with her Wishcasting Wednesday, which is held at her website Jamie Ridler Studios at http://jamieridlerstudios.ca
This weeks question is: What simple pleasures do you wish to enjoy?
 
Life is full of simple pleasures which I often just take for granted. So some of the simple pleasures I wish to enjoy are as follows:
  • a kiss from my husband
  • a smile from my boys
  • five to ten minutes silence
  • sunshine, it always makes me feel so good
  • a cup of tea
  • a couch, blanket and book to read
  • a smile from a stranger
  • my comfy warm bed
  • a hot shower, especially on these cold winters days
  • music
  • a phone to connect with family and friends
  • sharing a family meal together
  • a glass of red wine
  • my journal and the time to journal in it.
  • a walk around the park, being in nature and listening to the birds, and enjoying the breeze
  • a chat to the other Mums as I wait at the bus stop for my son.
  • my umbrella and coat for these wet winter’s days.

Finally the simple pleasure of being grateful for all the abundance I have in my life each day. An appreciation of all the wonderful loving people in my life especially my family. An appreciation of our lovely fluffy dog Little Miss Popularity and her adorable companionship.It can sometimes be so easy to think of these pleasures as trivial, yet they are so important and are the things in life that bring me so much joy and comfort.

 Wishing you all a wonderful day and may all your wishes come true!

This weeks question is: How do you wish to nurture the creative within?

A lovely question which I have been exploring this year. I have found the Artist’s Way to be a fabulous book providing the tools of morning pages and artist’s dates as great ways to nurture my creative within. It also has many exercise within the book that have allowed me to explore the creative within and get to know her. Another book I have been having so much fun playing with is Wreck this Journal, here I get to play with all my art supplies, create for fun without any expectations. I get to be really silly. Then I think another way I nurture the creative within is through being open to new activities and ideas, and exploring new places. Also through appreciating other people’s creativity, and noticing the beauty that is all around me. Plus allowing time  for myself to play,  draw a picture or think creative about the meal I will prepare that night.

It is never to late to learn to draw.

It is never to late to learn to draw.

So I wish to nurture the creative within with creative play and activities, and by acknowledging the importance of creativity on a daily basis. I also just wish to surround myself with more creativity and creative people who can encourage and teach my inner creative, to be even more creative. 

IMG_3518This weeks Artist’s Date I found this lovely new wool shop to explore. It was totally dedicated to knitting,crochet, cross stitch and embroidery. It had the most beautiful wools that I have ever seen or felt. The variety was totally amazing.  It had a beautiful selection of books to choose from. It looked totally lovely, felt warm and cozy. It made me think I want to knit, a nice scarf would be good. So my latest idea is to purchase so nice wool, ask my Mum for knitting needles and a lesson, and get stuck into knitting.

Gorgeous knitted eye candy and cross work pieces.

Wishing you all a wonderful day and may all your wishes come true.

It is wonderful Wishcasting Wednesday! Every week Jamie Ridler from   Jamie Ridler Studios at http://jamieridlerstudios.ca, asks a question. This weeks question is: What do you wish to discover?

At the moment it is early in the morning, a wet winters day and it is freezing. I am so cold! So I am totally preoccupied with discovering what is wrong with our gas meter. It is making a humming sound that sounds like a siren. So we are not keen to use any of our gas until we discover what is wrong and get it fixed. So I sit here and freeze. The next thing I wish to discover is where I put my beanie, scarf and gloves, I think I will be needing them today. No heating, no hot water, and no stove for cooking. Great! So I wish to discover that our gas providers provide a quick and prompt repair service. I know it is very materialistic and shallow. However it is too hard for me to be deep and philosophical  when I am  freezing cold.

Well I can be a little philosophical. I  would love to discover what is that I really really love to do.Plenty of things I like to do, however nothing I really love to do. That thing that I  would just want to devote time to every day no mater what. A dream, a passion  an idea that something.

I also love to discover new places, new activities, new ideas and new adventures in my life.

Whilst I always enjoy discovering new books to read and explore.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

 

Wishcasting Wednesday

It is Thursday here and our family attended the Anzac day march and service this morning.

It is wonderful Wishcasting Wednesday! Every week Jamie Ridler from   Jamie Ridler Studios at http://jamieridlerstudios.ca, asks a question. This weeks question is: Where do you wish for healing?

This question I found to be difficult and I guess today made me think I wish for healing in the world. War and conflict come at so a high human cost, and cause so much pain and suffering. I honour and remember all those defence service people who have served my country and sacrificed so much. I wish for healing for loss and injury. I wish for healing of the world, and peace.

A short  post of today.

Wishcasting Wednesday!

It is wonderful Wishcasting Wednesday! Every week Jamie Ridler from   Jamie Ridler Studios at http://jamieridlerstudios.ca, asks a question. This weeks question is: How do you wish to lighten up?

Me being silly on photo booth.

Me being silly on photo booth.

I started Wreck this Journal, this year to help me lighten up! It has got lots of great activities in them and I love doing them. My son tells me I am not in primary school and shakes his head with disgust. I just smile and laugh and keep doing it.

 

Wreck this Journal.

I really need to lighten up in the mornings. I can be described as Mrs Grumpy in the morning. I am seriously not a morning person, and everyone tries really hard to annoy me. They eat too slow, don’t get dressed properly, have to be told to eat, clean teeth and even put their shoes on. After a whole hour of nagging I am wrecked. I should really lighten up and just take them to school in their pyjamas.

So I wish to lighten up by :

  • being less serious and having more fun with the boys all day long
  • Having more fun everyday, and making an effort to be really silly at times.
  • Learning to be a good joke teller. I am getting better at this.
  • Being able to find the funny side of the things that go wrong in my life.
  • Not taking other people’s opinions to heart, and getting upset or offended.
  • Allowing my inner clown out to play more often.

Wishing you all a wonderful day?
