Things, no money can buy

I’m starting to feel like this is turning into a public gratitude journal… but look at this precious surprise my mom left me in my apartment when she was there for an appointment while I had to work – homegrown vegetables from their garden.
While I don’t even have a balcony I’m so happy they are growing some again after 20 years or so. When they bought their house from the previous owners, we even had a few apple trees, figs and a big old cherry tree, but then turned the whole garden into an easy-to-maintain lawn/flowers/bushes garden – and my dad’s beloved bamboo.
It made sense with both of them working and us kids going to school and then apprenticeship / uni but seeing them develop such a diy obsession in retirement again is making me more than happy!

There’s nothing like the taste of homegrown vegetables

Feel free to leave me a little obolus in the tip jar :-)

Switching off the Sunday Alarm

I’ve been pretty hard on myself the past few years. Always pushing forward and practicing self-discipline.

It makes me feel happy, balanced and like I’m not wasting the time I’ve got here on this wonderful miracle we call our planet – there’s just one downside: there’s no time to recharge. It leaves me tired and in a state of constant light burnout

So, last sunday I decided to start a small compromise and not get up at 5am (or earlier) once a week. Let’s call it a self-discipline cheat day :-)
