night time lights

Night time lights. When the work is done, and I turn off the main lights, switching to softer lights and candles. It's a good transition time for me and so peaceful to look at the flickering flame of the candles in the air conditioning draft. The weekend was good in a busy kind of way, got a good amount of things sorted out, and put away, although some are still pending. Did some baking, which is always a good thing! Hope you had a good weekend!

summer is here!

Weary, weary, weary! That's what I feel like these days. As it's getting hotter and more humid by the second, it feels like I'm melting, wilting, fading. So, I'm trying all the old tricks that make you handle the heat better, like eating thanda foods, drinking lassi and lemonade, cool showers after the evening walk and playground visit, simple food for dinners like salads and fish. What makes the immediate difference is having a cool bath after the mugginess of outside, but having something extra like sea salt that purifies as it cleanses and exfoliates, is an added bonus. And it does make you feel so fresh, that squeaky clean feeling, when you suddenly are invigorated and feel that you can conquer the world. Ok, maybe I went a little overboard with that last one, but you get the point, right.

back and on track!

It's nice to be back home and get back to the old routine. I do enjoy reading our local paper, instead of looking it up online when I was away! One of the articles I read was about how businesses are picking up again and commercial rents are on the rise. The main emphasis of the article was the importance of getting your basics right when you're starting your own business, such as getting the right kind of protection if things take longer to pick up or if business slows down again, so getting some business insurance is a very important part of running your own business. It's not something that one should defer to a later date, but count it just like one puts money aside for rent.
