W E E K E N D  M U S I N G S ::  My first week of annual leave was a bit of a let down due to the strange weather we experienced.  As a result, I felt unmotivated and unfocused.  All these creative projects I envisioned tackling quickly vanished in thin air and on top of it, on Thursday, I suddenly developed a bad back, which I know from experience is brought on by stressful thinking. Oh my, not a great start to my staycation! Then the weekend rolled around and we hit another heat wave.  Today, as I write this post, it is currently 25, with daytime high temperatures expected to climb into the low thirties, and with maximum humidex values in the 37 to 40 range! But I couldn’t be happier. Now to tackle those projects! Hope your week ahead is a lovely one, xo.
