more or less?

July 13, 2010 at 5:56 pm 12 comments

fear less, hope more;  eat less, chew more;  whine less, breathe more;
talk less, say more;  hate less, love more and all good things will be yours.

What have you been doing more or less of this week?

    less driving, more cycling; more gardening, less housework; less blogging, more socialising; less discipline, more lbs.

    no housework, more baking, more stitching, more entertaining, more veg collecting from my plot and lots of hanging about waiting for the workmen to turn up and fix our chimney!

    Been to a couple of Chamber Of Commerce meetings and helping to fight a political battle to bring a garbage transfer station into our city. It would lower our garbage rate, bring us a fat lease on unused city property and be emptied every day by larger trucks.
    But selling that to some citizens is extremely difficult. Other than that, I’ve been “over the moon”.

    glad to hear you’ve all been letting the housework slide in favour of creativity and play :o)

    Tom – you’ve been working hard! Love that otherwise you’re ‘over the moon’. Long may that continue …

    MC – wet and windy has continued through the work for you. Great for the garden though :o)

    Michael Pollan – “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants”

    (from ‘In Defense(sic) of Food’ – American book hence crazy spelling – http://michaelpollan.com/books/in-defense-of-food/ )

    Good read…

G's birthday started and ended with kisses but was filled with unavoidable work deadlines. That's the nature of freelance work juggling 4 different jobs at the same time and never really having a day off. He's away tomorrow too and we're so grateful for everything he does to take care of us. We love you Dadda 💜
