Sweet Dreams!

I am a  (Zealot) or stickler on pampering and relaxing. Coming home from work we cook, clean do homework with your children etc....When the time comes to relax the laptop is shut, the dishes are done, you have tucked the kids in. So now it's time to take a deep breath and relax with some "me time". If you have not already done this or you considering try making your bedroom your place of peace.

   First step in preparing your peaceful environment. Always try to keep some reading material at your bedside. Reading is good for the soul you expand your mind; try reading the Bible, a good book or magazine some have great articles.

  Next try and clear the area around your bed of anything that doesn't speak peace, delight you or relax you. I like doing my nails at night that delights me. I get one of those small tables that fold away & set up my own manicuring station. This small spa has everything I need nail clippers, cuticle nippers, creams for hands & heels. This relaxes me and my hands look pretty good for a home spa....LOL

 Another way to relax and unwind is right before bed cozy up with a cup of herbal tea-- as you are sipping take out your journal and jot down what you are thankful for. This always helps end the day on a good note.

Although this is my  favorite take a long bath then spray your clean linen with a delicately scented linen spray and have soothing tunes with the sound of the ocean playing OMG! works for me everytime.

Whatever you enjoy doing to relax before bed always make sure you PRAY this is the best relaxation. Talk to GOD.  I always speak to my saviour letting him know what went on that day, and what I can do to make the next day better.  "oiche mhaith" means Goodnight in Irish Galic.

Spring is here!

Spring is here the birds are singing, flowers are blooming, the weather is great and the sun is shining. I absolutely love this season the weather is nice not to hot or to cold. I was reading that in spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the sun and the length of daylight increases which give us longer days -  yeah! more time to soak up some sun.  In my yard the flowers were pushing their way through the ground even in cold weather. Creation waits for nothing! Spring is seen as a time of growth,  and renewal of new life for plants my husband planted some tulips bulbs in the yard last year in the fall, and they have sprung looking fabulous.  Also, did you know that animals are born just this time of the year?  Rabbits and deer are born in the spring and some birds.

Spring is also the season for new fashion trends. All you  fashionistas should keep up to date with the latest trends of the season. I have been perusing the magazines seeing what is looking good for spring 2011.  Ladies we always want to look our best. The awesome part of spring fashion is that you can look in your closet and pull out those nice bright colors, and put away those dark ones. Something about wearing colorful attire like coral, yellow, pink and white that just seems to brighten your day and attitude. Let's enjoy Spring get outside have fun plant some flowers, wear a bright color to work tomorrow and have a wonderful day. " forårssæson" means Spring Season in Danish.
