Norah Jones - Come Away with Me.

The sun is shining, the sky is blue and there is a gentle breeze blowing - a perfect Sunday morning - all is quiet and calm in my little corner of the world.   The birds are singing and I can hear my cat purring as she dozes in the sun through the window.

All in all it is a perfect morning - come away with me and find that perfect spot where you can relax and enjoy your day.

My weekend has been a good one so far - I have pictures to share from my class yesterday.  It was a good class, nice people, beautiful teacher, lovely background music and my heart and hands were open to learning and creativity.

My first completed beading project 

A very simple but very sweet bracelet

We have another class booked for late September and hopefully I shall have purchased more bits and pieces and be creating in my own right then - it is a long time since I have used my creativity and I found it healing and gentle.

Use your creativity - whatever it is to bring calm to your life and heart - maybe it's writing, painting, knitting, scrap booking, restoring  furniture and giving it new life.   Cooking can be creative too - those beautiful cake designs are a work of art.

There is so much to do and choose from - and I am hoping that beading will be something special I can do and enjoy.

Come away with me and find that calm and peaceful place in your life where your heart can sing, you can relax, be creative - just be yourself.

It was a busy day yesterday and then I had dinner with friends and by the time I came home I was a very tired girl.  Straight to bed and straight to sleep - a much more sleep filled night and I have woken today refreshed, but away that I need to be gentle with myself and this I can do and will do.

I have coffee, music and time with you - what more can I ask for?
My laundry is drying in the sun and breeze and I am reminded of these words: "It is well with my soul."

There are frustrations in my life - I was frustrated by having to come home early when I was having a lovely time with friends, but I have to learn to live within the limitations and yesterday was a very big day and looking back - it was a good day.  It was calm and quiet - even the drive through the city was relatively calm (apart from the mandatory road works wherever you go).

I hope your weekend is a good one and I thank you for visiting the Musings from my Heart and invite you to "Come Away with Me" and find that peaceful quite spot to refresh and restore.

Love and hugs,

I had a quite peaceful day, ignoring the Mum calls, emails and dog wash dramas, but all in all was relaxing.
Love your bracelets (simple?????)
