A glimpse

Some wise words in my yoga studio. Why yes, I'm taking that photo in the bathroom.


I love the little bottle of milk this cafe brought with my tea last week.


The kitty came back to visit TWICE. While we still don't let her (I've assumed it's a her) into the house, we do go out and give her a nice scratch. I swear she likes it, despite this photo (you try juggling an iphone, yoga bag, and scratching a kitty!).



We have another baby lemon growing on our tree!



The cafe Seven Seeds in Melbourne makes the best hot chocolate. Why yes, that is a giant chocolate stick that is melting into the (soy) milk.

When I had surgery, Inspector Climate would get me out of the house by encouraging me to go on "walkies" with him. "Walkies!" he'd say, like he was trying to get a dog all excited about going outside.

Since being unemployed we've tried to go on walkies just to spend some extra time together that isn't sitting on the couch or working on our relative computers (I've also started reading aloud to Inspector Climate while he does the dishes, which I kind of love because it means we can experience the same book at the same time).

This is us on walkies.

  1. I like these photo update posts!

    Also, that chocolate stick is inspirational. My morning coffees may just become a lot less healthy ;-)

  2. Warm sunshine...I'm SO jealous! It's -4C here right now. I go on lots of "walkies" as I have dogs but they're not so enjoyable right now. Maybe if I had a cup of that hot chocolate!!

  3. Thank you so much for that beautiful quote. I'm writing it down and am posting it on the bathroom mirror so that's the first thing I see when I wake up. It never fails to brighten one's day to see fruits growing in the garden. :)

  17. That hot chocolate looks incredible! It's not nearly warm enough for walks in Chicago to actually be enjoyable... so for now I will have to settle for getting from point A to point B as fast as possible :P

  18. I love the looks of that hot chocolate - chocolate sticks are totally the way forward I think! I have promised my kids in school hot chocolate on Friday when we have pyjama day - I don't think it'll be quite up to this standard though! So great that you make time to go out and walk together, and that quote is defintiely bringing a smile on an otherwise fairly down sort of day :)

  27. I WANT THAT HOT CHOCOLATE!!! Looks fabulous! And thanks for the yoga quote, even if it meant bathroom photography. I've been needing a hit of inspiration lately and that was a really nice message to read.

  28. Chocolate stick and cat. Those 2 things caught my attention. I miss my street cat Bycka when I lived in Israel, I'd love a dog or a cat to keep me company right now
