Ok, minds out of the gutter! 😉 I just wanted to hop on to say hello. Today is the first day back to school after summer break here in Southern Germany. Autumn has also arrived. The mornings are crisp and cool, leaves are beginning to change and I am feeling quite refreshed.
Finally, I am back in the kitchen after a too hot summer. Happily, I am replacing my tank tops and shorts for sweaters and jeans. Well, we are not quite there yet, but soon will be and I want to be prepared.
This cooler season of Autumn feels like a fresh new start. More so to me, than New Years. It is my favorite time of the year, since moving overseas.
There is much planned for the upcoming months. Travel, family visiting, baseball playoffs, hockey games, fall cleaning, a bit more simplifying, a little organizing and back to work part-time. Don’t worry, now that I have gotten my “life” organized, I have found time to blog a bit more, finally!
It is amazing once you develop very simple routines how much time one finds to do things that make them happy and relax. It took me a while to finally develop a routine that seems to work. (It also helped not to be so anal and obsessive about cleaning…(my deep, dark, secret),) Oh, and limiting tv, surfing (online, not the ocean) and much social networking, opened up a huge window of time.
A few months back, I decided to track how I spend my time. I had taken a time-management course a long, long time ago when I was a secretary and I applied the same idea. All I can say is, Wow! What an eye opener. That seemed to get me back on the right track.
This doesn’t seem like such a “Quickie” post anymore so I think I will end it here.
I enjoy beginning this new, fresh season with much new content to share with you.
