Time for another commitment to loveliness. Emma challenges us to look at our life and see what we can do to make it more beautiful. The idea is to have a small list of things that we can easily do in our day to day routine that make our life a bit more lovely, for ourselves, and for everyone around us.
At eight and a half months pregnant, I find it harder and harder to combine loveliness and myself in the same sentence, yet this last week, I have made some definite progress. I have jumped, okay dragged myself, on the flylady bandwagon again. The system always worked for me, and it is just foolishness that I let it go throughout pregnancy. After all, when will I need some basic routines more then after the baby is born? When will a clean, organised house be more important then when I have a newborn? Oh, I have no visions of myself cleaning those first few weeks, with the baby attached to my hip, smiling angelically and humming a happy housekeeper song, but I hope to find time to shower perhaps and clean my counters, etc. Or have someone else (like my beloved husband) do that last chore for me while I breastfeed.
The very least I therefor can do is try and keep the house reasonably tidy and organised. But I am grossly diverting from the subject. Loveliness. Here are some basic ways I will try to make my life and that of those around me a bit more lovely:
- drink more water.
- remove nailpolish from toenails
- keep to flylady program
- go to the gym and walk on the tredmill
- put some music on while I work during the day
Five simple things that I really should be able to do. In fact, I will go and have a glass of water right now!
