I love spending time at home doing my own things, especially on weekends. It feels so nice to wake up with no need to hurry anywhere. This weekend I had no plans at all, only to clean around the house a little bit and just enjoy the me-time. I did my things, chilled around the house, listened to music and sipped on my coffee – p-e-r-f-e-c-t-i-o-n.One of my things to do was to decide where to put this shelf, one of my latest flea market finds. The originally dark brown surface was partially worn out, so I decided to paint it with chalk paint I had left from previous projects. I had the feeling it would find it’s place in the house and so it did in the kitchen. I like the result!
I also got to test out the new carpet I had ordered. Originally I pictured it into the dining room but it actually works better in the living room, what do you think? As you can see, I now have curtains and I think it’s amazing what a difference they made to the room. It’s a totally new feeling in there. Even our cat, Miss Helmi, thinks it’s a cozy place.I’ve been juicing every morning since the 3-Day Juice Challenge and did this green juice on Sunday. It included apple, ginger, lemon, celery and spinach. So delicious!
The weather on Sunday was amazing, so I decided to go out to the nearby forest to look for mushrooms. I didn’t find any, but picked some lingonberries and blueberries instead. I got company by Miss Helmi and she seemed to enjoy the trip as much as I did.
After my walk in the forest, I got a message from my friend, asking if I’d be up to some “therapy talk” in the forest and of course I was. Deep discussions in the forest is the best combination. And we found mushrooms!
The rest of the afternoon I spent in our home garden picking apples. The amount of apples this year is insane! We already made lots of apple juice and the plan is to make jam during the week.
This weekend really charged my batteries and I enjoyed every bit of it.
Lots of energy to your new week!
